    A gripping tale of survival and the kind of smart thriller that will gain much-deserved attention for both director Stolhand and actor/writer Uygar Aktan. Simply a stunning piece of filmmaking.
  2. 60
    The pacing is suspenseful and acting is actually pretty good, even if accents are no one's strong suit.

    There's a provocative premise at the heart of Master of the Game, but uneven acting, indifferent direction and melodramatic dialogue blunt pointed ironies.
  4. 38
    Provides a few minor thrills, but overall is talky and implausible.
  5. 30
    Director Stolhand gets a high-quality look on a minimal budget, but the script and acting are so amateurish.

    I loved this film! MOTG is not meant to be a historical rendition of wwII, but rather a psychodrama that offers a compelling ride if the I loved this film! MOTG is not meant to be a historical rendition of wwII, but rather a psychodrama that offers a compelling ride if the viewer can relax left-brain chatter, suspend disbelief, and accept the premise of a role-reversal game. uygar aktan deserves recognition for offering us a fresh, exciting storyline that kept me engaged after the production's conclusion.
