Exciting and Stressful

There is lots of chasing and action. There is blood, but it is not graphic. There is about a tv-14 amount of swearing except for about 1 f-word per episode. No sexual content.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing

Family Show

This show is great it’s action packed and I watched it with my 6 year old and she loved it. Although it is a little disheartening that the episodes are only 8 minutes

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (1):

Richard Connell's 1924 short story about big game hunters who tire of tracking animals and shift their focus to a human has been adapted numerous times over the last 100 years, and it often feels relevant and exciting. The premise of Most Dangerous Game has that near mythological feel of classic horror, and the creators of this version have smartly changed the setting from the wild to the city and made the story into an allegory about wealth inequality in America. They also have a pair of excellently cast stars in Hemsworth and Waltz.

All adaptations, from the 1932 film to the 1994 Ice-T vehicle Surviving the Game, deal with the challenge of delivering on the promise of a great premise. This patient, confident version appears to be up to the challenge, and while it may not be a classic in its own right, it has a decent shot at pulling it off.
