By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 20 April 2015
Format: DVD
Ice-T is a homeless person in Seattle. He has some street smarts and is used to roughing it. He is selected by a group of hunters to be their prey in a remote location. The group is lead by Rutger Hauer and has a Gary Busey crazy character in it. Formula film. You know how it ends. Decent for what it was.

Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

In a nut-shell rutger Hauer seeks out Ice T to be the latest in a long line of hunted prey. Offering Ice T money, food and a hair cut, he takes T up to his ranch deep in the forest. There he and some of his rich colleagues set T free and track him down. Picking them off one by one T manages to survive. Hauer eventually gives up and returns to the city closely followed by the ice man. Now ice T uses his street knowledge to carry out his revenge. Well worth a look

A team of rich city high rollers who are former agents/soldiers of fortune get their kicks out of hunting, shooting and killing. However, their prey happens to be human.
Rutger Hauer is the typical bad guy that he plays so well. Lots of action and nail biting thrills. Great ending. Ice T plays a great role.

Ice T is homeless and down on his luck when a mystery stranger offers him the chance to earn some money as a guide on a hunting expedition with some wealthy clients.

Little does he know he's the prey.

So basically this is a retread of Van Dammes hard target.

That may sound bad as Hard target is such a great action flick, but this more than holds it's own thanks to an all star cast, stylish and beautiful direction, and some fairly intense dialouge and action scenes.

If you like films like Hard target or Judgement night (Another underated classic starring Emilio Estevez) this is an entertaining
way to pass the timenand deserves repeat viewings.

Surviving the Game came traipsing in a year after Jean-Claude Van Damme's much more popular Hard Target. Both films featured down-on-their-luck men being used as human prey for rich, bloodthirsty psycho's desperate for the thrill of the kill. Ice-T is a good actor, but not in this film he ain't. Though he still out-performs JCVD as the man on the lam.

T plays Jack Mason, a Seattle hobo plucked from the streets and given a job in the wilderness. Without asking any serious questions or growing suspicious he sheepishly accepts the offer. Upon arriving at a remote forest cabin (actually Lake Wenatchee Airport, if you don't mind me spoiling the magic) he meets a bunch of wealthy weirdos and is well fed and watered. When he wakes the next morning Mason discovers that his job is to run as fast as he can back to civilization.

Director Earnest Dickerson has no control over his cast and allows them to overact to ludicrous degrees. F. Murray Abraham, Oscar or no Oscar, has no idea what he's doing. Gary Busey turns up, goes mental, and then exits (a stupid mistake as he's the most interesting character). John C. McGinley goes over the edge with the minimal of back-story, which only just starts getting interesting before he too exits. It's like they actually wanted to strip the film of any engaging substance.

They try to inject some kind of subtext with the character names. Mason is the everyday working man. He is hunted by men called Hawkins, Griffin, Mr. Wolf and Wolf Jnr. He is employed by men called Cole and Burns, and taken to a place called Hell's Canyon. If writer Eric Bernt was trying to be clever it's lost in the bumbling incompetence that cripples the action scenes.

I bought this film because of the review below thinking we were in for a hidden gem of a film. Being honest I was a little disappointed, it had the making of the Classic Rambo but it fell short. The cast,location,storyline and camera work were all there it just lacked that bite that keeps you interested. The chase and moderate action just about kept this a watchable film the start and end of the film were not good. I will sat Gary Busey took the honours in the acting for the short part he played.
