      I was a bit apprehensive about whether this remake would be as good as the original. But then I realize that this film was made by the same director. It is then that I realized that all the nuances were the same as the first film.

      Starring Naomi Watts and Tim Roth, I was surprised at this pick as the couple.


      But then I realized that in choosing these two, they scored a pair of actors who could nail down the subtlety of the first film.

      The original story, first shown in 1997 was actually a German film featuring two young men who terrorize a family. (SPOILER ALERT!) They keep the family hostage and play an assortment of “funny games” with the family until they ...


      • are all ultimately killed.

        What was really atrocious about the crime in particular, was how long they actually spent in torturing the poor people. With the results unbeknownst to the viewer, we realize that in fact, this ruse has probably been going on for quite a long time.

        The two young men are so good at it, that they almost seem harmless.

        All of these details come together very well.

        This is why the feel is almost the same as in the first movie. The suspense will be a bit grating at times.

        And you may feel that the film is going nowhere. But just be patient.

        All the little nuances will come together at the end, and you’ll see the brilliance.
