Reindeer Games (2000)

JOHN FRANKENHEIMER

Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BB.5.  USA, 2000Dimension Films, Marty Katz Productions.  Screenplay by .  Cinematography by .  Produced by .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  

spends his time in prison witnessing lovelorn cellmate exchange letters with an equally infatuated young lady (Charlize Theron).  When Frain dies in a prison riot, Affleck meets Theron in his cellmate’s place and finds himself strongly attracted to her, but her gangster brother (Gary Sinise) and his cohorts catch up with the two lovebirds and force them to help in ripping off a local casino. Is this the whole story? With conspiracy-theorist John Frankenheimer at the helm, I would think not! Not nearly as good as Frankenheimer’s best work, but not nearly as bad as his rancid Island of Dr. Moreau.
