Movie Summary

John Frankenheimer
Reindeer Games is an action film that centers on prison inmate, Rudy (Ben Affleck). His prison cellmate, Nick (James Frain), has been exchanging letters with a woman named Ashley (Charlize Theron). When Nick is killed in a prison fight, Rudy pretends to be Nick and meets up with Ashley when he gets out of jail. He soon realizes that pretending to be Nick was not a smart idea, as Nick had people after him. Gabriel (Gary Sinise) is the leader of a gang of vicious criminals who finds Rudy and Ashley in the cabin they are staying in and assaults them. It is during the assault that Rudy finds out he is not the only one pretending to be someone he is not. A short time later, Rudy, Gabriel and the rest of the gang of criminals rob a casino, dressed as Santa Claus. The robbery does not go as well as planned, mostly due to the arrival of an unexpected guest. Find out what becomes of Rudy by watching Reindeer Games.moreless
