  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
It's the "End" of the "Game" for Secret Service agent Alex Thomas (Gooding, Jr.) when the president is assassinated under his watch. Blaming himself for the death of the country's leader, Alex becomes determined to find out who could be responsible for the killing. And with the help of reporter Kate Crawford (Harmon), the two begin an investigation based on lies and intrigue, uncovering the most unlikely of suspects. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD picture has a gritty texture that is complementary to the storytelling. Colors are often stylized with desaturated, stark blue hues and high contrast; while others are richly saturated with thick colors and deep, undefined blacks. Considering the stylizations, this DVD delivers a fine picture. Pixel breakup and loss of finer details can be a problem at times, but edge halos are limited. (Suzanne Hodges)
