Would've been better with just a touch of more action

I though REINDEER GAMES was a pretty good movie, especially compared to some other movies of the year 2000 so far, but I think there should have been a little more action than there actually was. There was quite a lot of buildup to the casino robbery, but when it finally got there, not much happened. The ending was very good. Just when you think you've identified all the twists, there's another one right there.

Rudy (Ben Affleck), a car-thief, and his cellmate Nick (James Frain), a guy who killed another man while defending his girlfriend, are both about to be freed from jail when Nick is murdered during a lunch fight. Rudy decides to pretend to be him when his pen-pal-like girlfriend Ashley (Charlize Theron), who never met Nick before, comes to find him. The two really hit it off and things are going well, until Ashley's brother Gabriel (Gary Sinise) finds Rudy and threatens to kill him if he doesn't help them get into and rob a casino, which the real Nick previously worked at.

The plot is actually pretty cool, but it's hard to believe that this bunch of idiot-thieves would really believe that this was the real Nick, even after he told them time after time that he wasn't. There are many great twists at the end which leads to an unpredictable, although somewhat unbelievable, ending. The characters are pretty cool, about half of which turn out to be different from whom you originally thought.

Ben Affleck, new to the action genre, did a pretty good job. After proving himself to be able to play very different parts, like in Dogma, Armageddon and now this, I think he is really going places. Charlize Theron did an OK job as well as the mysterious girlfriend of Nick. Gary Sinise stole the show. I really like this guy. Boy can he act! He's played so many different characters very well. Gary doesn't do as well as the villain as he did in SNAKE EYES or RANSOM, but he still did a very good and believable job.

The main flaw in this movie was the lack of action until the end. The casino robbery itself should've been more action-packed, like it seemed on the commercial. Even in the ending there was more irony and surprise than there was action. But the story and was action was there was still very well done. I'd recommend this movie over many of the movies out now.

I actually didn't expect that it would be great but it IS GREAT

I personally enjoyed it, maybe it's not a 9/10 but it's really good Final seines are amazing

Very good action thriller kind of movie, it exceeded my expectations

fun and twisty, and I usually know what is the end gonna be like in these kind of movies, but I didn't expect the ending not like that.

Don't have anything else to say, but watch it and you will not be wasting your time at all

Thank for reading

Give it another chance..

After assuming his dead cellmate's identity to get with his girlfriend, an ex-con finds himself the reluctant participant in a casino heist. Reindeer Games is one of those films that with each viewing i started to appreciate more for example Ben Affleck is really good in the film, Gary Sinise and Charlize Theron are also pretty damn great. The humor is quite clever, the action is good for the most part and the acting is what you would expect from a movie like this. The twist in the end was surprising and came out of nowhere it's also inside the Christmas Spirit with some pretty good Christmas Songs too. There are some over the top moments and the rest of the gang is kinda annoying some times but overall a nice and enjoyable action film. (8/10)
