I remember reviewing Game of Death at SXSW roughly 3 years ago. At the time, I praised its lack of character development (yes, really) and its ability to somehow focus, almost exclusively, on violence and chaos. It was a fun and absurd breath of fresh air back then, and I’m beyond excited to see it finally get a formal release after all this time.
For those unfamiliar, Game of Death started as a web series before it was eventually edited into a feature film. I imagine the edit has gone through a couple of changes since I reviewed it, but it didn’t feel like a web series at all when I saw it–and that’s a good thing. If you’re in the mood to turn your brain off for 73 minutes and watch a LOT of heads explode, then look no further than Game of Death. It’s releasing digitally on July 14th from Cleopatra Entertainment. Check out the trailer, below.
