This movie is a dark psychological film that is quite entertaining. This movie explores what it means to be a friend. Can anyone say that they trust their friend with all of their heart? Surely anybody will quickly say yes but when push comes to shove that's when things get interesting. One of the strong points of this movie is the small cast. We get a good amount of character development and all the characters get equal screen time. Each actor/actresses put on good performances all around. Although the game is based on a Japanese board game it has its own special twists to it that make it fresh and fun. CGI is not overdone and doesn't seem out of place. This movie will leave you wondering what will happen next and the board game is quite entertaining. Give this movie a watch. ;)
First of all, you have to watch the mini drama before watching this movie, as the film picks up where the drama left the story. Plus, the drama explained the whole situation, as the movie just focuses on the game and not the characters and why they are in the friend game. Now, for the actual movie, it was entertaining overall. The twists were good and unexpected, but the ending was left open and probably things are concluded in the second movie. The performances were good too, and, the pinnochio thing didn't really bother me, as the anime addition of this movie.
