  1. 75
    May not reinvent the wheel, but its expertly delivered thrills would hit the spot at any time of year.
  2. This new heist movie by the great thriller director John Frankenheimer flails around like its own dysfunctional gang of casino robbers.
  3. The material here, written by Ehren Kruger, is beneath banal, and the three leads are so miscast that it's like watching a dress charade.
  4. 40
    Punishing, visceral violence is the key element.
  5. 38
    The first All Talking Killer picture. After the setup, it consists mostly of characters explaining their actions to one another.
  6. Reviewed by: Todd McCarthy
    With a far-fetched script that might barely have passed muster at the B units in the old studio days, this Dimension release will command a certain up-front attention due to cast topliners.
  7. While you may like comedies and you make like thrillers, this film does neither of the above with any pizazz.

    Director's Cut- Huge improvement over the original. Adds alot more character development along with even more action.
  2. Mar 2, 2012
    The little action that exists in Reindeer Games is let down by the nonsensical plot turns, the uninspired performances and unlikeable characters. The heist storyline has been done over one hundred times, every one better than this. Expand
