♫It's a game♫

The Game (2011)
Chosen by me from a selection on the plane. Also I hated wearing the earphones for The Lincoln Lawyer so I choose a foreign movie that I could just watch without sound and read the sub-titles.

A very stylish, smart looking film filled with gorgeous people shot like they were in a Michael Mann film.
Unfortunately the plot is sub-par Agatha Christie nonesense filled with twins, hidden agendas, and all sorts of silliness but it's never any fun.
We are told by one character that the game is about to begin but there's no Saw like shenanigans here. No game at all really. Somebody talks bullshit to a bunch of people and there's a couple of fights. Bit like scrabble.
