    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.

    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.

    Provides a few minor thrills, but overall is talky and implausible.

    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 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.

    It's quite strange how most of the users who gave this tedious Indie film a score of 10 all seem to have very similiar usernames. Skip this movie. I've seen it and it's absolutely awful. Expand
