13 Games of Death (2006) Review:

13 Games of Death is a Thai movie featuring a horrific game made of totally insane tests. The concept is easy and yet makes the film surprisingly intriguing. Such plot inevitably reminds of a Thai version of the “Saw” series, except with less torture but much more disturbing challenges. The psychological dimension in “13 Games of Death” is huge and to me, this film is much better than the “Saw” series.

The games are diverse and well-thought. Some of them are really gross and will make you want to puke (the restaurant scene), others are gory (the drying line scene), but all of them are clever and link the story together in an interesting way. The acting is also very fine and the progressive evolution of the main character from a rational and serious man to a complete madman is really well-exploited. What I found really disturbing is how the film succeeds at having you to identify to the main character and hence wonder if his choices would have been yours!

The end is really good, rather unexpected and with morale (what’s important in life, are we vicious or voyeuristic, etc.). The final twist is brilliant for it makes you realize (*spoilers*) that you also enjoyed watching this game and somehow took pleasure in it…a very clever film!
