Twenty-five years ago, Hollywood churned out another remake of “The Most Dangerous Game,” the classic tale of man-meets-man, man-hunts-man, hunter-becomes-the-hunted… you know, that old chestnut. Coming just a year after Jean-Claude Van Damme played a certain Hard Target, Surviving the Game combined the same basic plot with a fish-out-of-water story as a character actor from the city (Ice-T) is brought to the wilderness to run for his life from a group of other character actors (the late Rutger Hauer, Charles S. Dutton, Gary Busey, John C. McGinley, F. Murrary Abraham) with predictable results. But is this ‘90s throwback worth tracking down, or should it be left on the VHS shelf next to those jars of heads?
“In the cinematic justice system, hunting humans for sport is considered especially heinous. The dedicated podcasters who rate these vicious films are members of an elite squad known as the Most Dangerous Victims Unit. These are their stories.”
