Reindeer Games

Rated 3.0 This mistaken identity crime thriller surprised me. I had no faith in Ben Affleck or Charlize Theron as action heroes, but both stars pull it off nicely. Affleck plays an ex-con who is newly released from prison. He’s mistaken for a man who knows the ins and outs of a casino that a psycho (a very good Gary Sinise) plans to rob. The movie involves a strange romance between Affleck and Theron, and the film will keep you guessing until the very end. It has some slow points, but enough intensity and good acting to keep things very interesting. A good action picture from director John Frankenheimer (Ronin).
