In "Survive The Game," when Detective David Watson (Bruce Willis) is injured in a drug bust gone wrong, his partner, Cal (Swen Temmel), pursues the two criminals who shot him to a remote farm owned by troubled vet Eric (Chad Michael Murray). As Cal and Eric plot their defense, more of the gang arrives—along with a wounded David—and outnumbered, the three heroes must use stealth, smarts, and marksmanship to take down the drug-dealing mob. (Gary Reber)

Special features include the trailer and a digital code.

The 2.39:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture's color palette is over-saturated for an unnatural appearance. This is especially true for the greenish earth hue on the farm, as well as the sky color. Objects such as the house and farm barn appear fairly natural as well as fleshtones. Plants are deep red and pop. Contrast is acceptable but at times unbalanced. Backs are deep and luminance is hyped. Resolution is generally good and revealing, though, a veil of digital noise is apparent during closeups. Overall, this is a mediocre presentation, (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack has a dynamic-sounding synthesizer soundtrack with good bass response. The music spans the soundstage and extends aggressively to the surrounds for an enveloping experience. Atmospherics are limited as a sound element but sound effects, such as fast cars on dirt roads and gunfire, are strong as a sound element. Foley sound effects are realistic and well synced. Dialogue is ADR forward or chest sounding, Overall, this is an acceptable soundtrack. (Gary Reber)
