Paul’s review of The Games Maker

The Games Maker (PG) is an Argentine-Canadian film released on 26th June 2014 and stars David Mazouz (The Darkness, Gotham) as Ivan Drago a young games inventor whose parents are killed in a hot air balloon accident. It turns out that he is the grandson of a famous board game inventor whose company has been almost ruined by an ex-employee who has been making plans to use Ivan in his own company.

The story was not really what I was expecting but it was well written and the acting believable, particularly the emotions shown by Mazouz. There were also parts of the story that could have been explained better and a little bit more humour would also have helped. That does not mean that I did not enjoy it, just ideas on how it could have been improved. I would still give it four out of five and I would watch it again, I just wouldn’t add it to my collection.
