Surviving The Game

2

Originally released in 1994, just one year after John Woo's similarly themed Hard Target, Surviving The Game is actually (loosely) based on 1932's classic human-hunting movie The Most Dangerous Game.

Here Ice T stars as a homeless bum, recruited off the ghetto streets to participate in the hunting party of some rich white folks. Unfortunately for Mr T, his role in the dubious proceedings is that of moving target, Rutger Hauer and Gary Busey taking pot shots at him with their big-bore rifles.

Could it be a clever metaphor for the plight of the country's downtrodden underclass in '90s America? Or is it just another example of straight-to-video clag starring a rapper-turned-actor? Hmmm...
