No this isn’t about Michael Douglas sitting down and finishing a 1000 piece puzzle upside down, no matter what the poster leads you to believe… this film is an excellent Suspense/Thriller. Douglas is a wealthy man that seems to have it all until his brother, played by Sean Penn, gives him an invite to a live action game that adds a lot of danger to Douglas’ life. Deborah Kara Unger has an excellent role in this as well and the two try to figure out what is going on. The twist at the end is pretty easy to figure out, but don’t let that keep you from enjoying this superbly made movie by David Fincher.
