Survey Says: Retarrible!
The Game is kind of like that, only the criminals in the obstacle course are controlled by other humans in a huge, elaborate multi-player videogame, where instead of manipulating the little guy in DOOM, you're manipulating a real person -- a convicted criminal -- and you can use him to kill other people. In the movie, this multiplayer game, called Slayers, was designed by a character played by Michael C. Hall. Gerard Butler plays a criminal trying to regain his independence from the game. Alison Lohman figures into the movie somehow.
Did I mention it all looks shitballs retarded? No? I should probably mention that, then.
The Game looks shitballs retarded.
Fortunately, it's so insanely idiotic that it really doesn't matter that the trailer is in Italian. I should also mention that it's directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, who were responsible for writing and directing Crank. And because of that, I won't completely dismiss the movie based on the trailer, although if you watch it too many times, you have an epileptic seizure. What I'm saying is: Bite on something if you're going to watch it more than once. I'll also give them points for making the movie look so similar to a video game, but then again, if I wanted to watch a video game, I'd hang out all day at Best Buy.
Here's the trailer.
