Survive the Game Fans Review
Survive the Game is yet another addition to the list of movies in which the drug bust goes awry. It is a low-budget film without any redeeming qualities that make it distinguishable. The plot, acting, and even the filming is not up to the mark, and it accounts for another of failed Bruce Willis’ efforts. But, as a viewer writes, “it is not the worst Bruce Willis movie either.”
The movie pits together two cops and a grieving former military vet, opposite to the criminals. If you get a feeling of rendezvous with the movie, it is because Bruce Willis and Chad Michael Murray have worked together for a similar action flick, Survive the Night. And, given that even the posters lack distinguishable characteristics between the two thrillers and look like a copy-paste for this one, it seems that one is not trying to do anything new or distinct here.
After the drug bust fails and the gunshot wounds David (Bruce Willis), it leaves the other cop Cal (SwenTemmel), to pursue Violet and Mickey’s violent assailants. Violet dons a cosplay of Harley Quinn, and fans point that it may be because nothing in their character points out that they own a personality. The cosplaying definitely entertains more than the plot or action sequences in the movie.
The movie’s plot is subdued with repetition, but the relentless shooting and fighting are much better than seeing the characters run a dialogue or conversation, which is much more irking. But, not the worst 2021 Bruce Willis movie, which one can be grateful for.
