5.0 out of 5 stars Man is the prey
What if hunting for sport was taken to its extreme?

That's the chilling premise of "The Most Dangerous Game," an adaptation of Richard Connell's story about a madman who hunts other men for sport. It's a taut, tightly-written movie with some wonderfully shocking moments, and a sense of suspense that doesn't let up until the final seconds.

A ship is...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun, May 30 2000

This review is from: The Most Dangerous Game (Criterion Collection) (DVD)
Still exciting 67 years after it was first made, this is the movie where Fay Wray first showed off just how good she is at screaming. Certain campy elements aside, there are several moments which are surprising to find in a movie this old -- heads floating in jars for example. Bruce Eder's commentary plays up the serial killing element of this movie, drawing repeated comparison to Silence of the Lambs. But for me his insanity is an excuse for the hero, Bob Rainsford, to feel genuine sympathy for the animals he himself had hunted. Highly recommended, and less expensive than most other Criterion disks.

3.0 out of 5 stars fine adventure-thriller, July 9 2001
By 
Byron Kolln (the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood) - See all my reviews
Fay Wray, Joel McCrea and Leslie Banks star in the entetaining adventure-thriller THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME.
Wray and McCrea are two people stranded on a lush tropical island, inhabited by the mad Count Zaroff who has a very strange hobby. He hunts humans, and proposes a dangerous mission in that if they survive, they will be free to leave the island. If not, Wray is his, and McCrea will be killed...
A fast-moving finale makes up for the creaky, talky start. The story really gets going after the first forty mintutes.
With Robert Armstrong, Noble Johnson and Hale Hamilton.

This review is from: The Most Dangerous Game (Criterion Collection) (DVD)
Since many have written of the awesome, original story. i will comment on the quality of the dvd. i owned a copy before criterion remastered it from the original 35 mm. composite fine-grain master. What a difference! Made in 1932 the transfer is not perfect and has a few flaws, but on the whole this version is worth every penny to get a decent copy of one of the best horror movies ever created based on a short story by Richard Connel. Audio commentary by film historian Brucce Eder. Subtitles added. 63 min. b & w. monoral. 1:33:1 aspect ratio.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Dangerous Game, June 15 2001
This review is from: The Most Dangerous Game (Criterion Collection) (DVD)
Shipwrecked McRae washed ashore on the island of Banks' Count Zaroff, a deranged sportsman with a flair for tracking humans. Guess who becomes the mad count's next target. Oft-told tale is compellingly related in this, the first of many using Richard Connell's famous short story. If deja vu sets in, don't worry. This production uses most of the scenery, staff, and cast from its studio cousin, "King Kong." Remade in 1945 as "A Game of Death" and in 1956 as "Run for the Sun." The Criterion Collection is a Must have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun but campy..., Oct. 7 1999
This review is from: The Most Dangerous Game (Criterion Collection) (DVD)
...but then again it was made 67 years ago. Widescreen wasn't invented there ain't much your missing. One thing though. It's a good movie and way ahead of it's time (even if it's only 62 minutes long) and I was pleasantly surprised. It's the first ever movie in which humans are hunted for sport. I reccomend you buy it. Seriously...it's cool

4.0 out of 5 stars Moody, classic thriller from KING KONG filmmakers., Oct. 1 1999
By A Customer
Richard Connell's tale of a man who is shipwrecked on a deserted island unaware that it is ruled by a fanatical "big game" hunter. Tense, sometimes unrelentless action film is a must-have for any classic movie collector. Banks performance is terrifying.

Apparently a favorite of the never-captured Zodiac Killer, who wore a costume based on the hunter's outfit in this film.
