Surviving the Game
The Richard Connell short story, The Most Dangerous Game, has been adapted for the screen many times. In this updated version, the rapper-actor Ice-T plays Mason, a homeless man whose best friend and his dog both die on the same day. Cole (Charles S. Dutton, a relief worker, tells Mason that there's a job available that entails leading a hunting expedition in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. The desperate Mason signs on. The hunting party is led by two CIA agents, Burns (Rutger Hauer) and Hawkins (Gary Busey), and it includes a business executive, Wolfe, Sr. (F. Murray Abraham), his son (William McNamara), and a strange Texan, Griffin (John C. McGinley). Mason flies on ahead to prepare the hunting lodge, and there he discovers that he is to be the prey for the hunt, though the hunters at least give him a head start before pursuing. The violent action pits the high-tech hunters, armed with numerous fancy weapons and vehicles, against Mason -- who must rely on his street smarts to escape and turn the tables on the hunting party. ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi

    This is one of those movies thats so bad its actually good. It really makes you wonder how something like this gets made. It was on Netflix and me and some friends decided to watch it and WOW. This is laugh out loud bad, but I love it.

    Shoddy Movie, Ok dvd


    Another cinematic installment of Richard Connell's 'The Most Dangerous Game,' only this version, starring Ice-T is really pretty poor. The dvd however, is not bad, and is actually better than this movie deserves.

    Great for the price


    Action pact film with good storyline. There is an all star cast such as Rutger Hauer, Charles S. Dutton, Gary Busey, F. Murray Abraham, and Ice T. The hunters now become the prey and prey the hunters.
