[text_block_nav title=”The Plot”]”The Badger Game” took me a bit to review, as it caught me way off-guard. But, let’s get the readers caught up before the rant. The film opens on a guy named Liam who loves the ladies. He’s successful and fun, but he’s a rich married dude who screws around. When one of the ladies discovers that she’s the side chick, she teams up with a small crew to make this machismo riddled turd pay. There’s plenty of joy to be had, but I’m not sure if it works as a pure revenge flick.[/text_block_nav][text_block_nav title=”What Troy Thought”]When blackmail and attempts to intimidate start involving sex and participation, the audience is pulled into a bizarre area. I can see the Tumblr crowd starting to have huge issues with the film. But, I get what is being attempted. Extortion rarely gets shown onscreen anymore, as it involves removing principal authority from a character. Now that everyone has to have rights and complete domain over every moment of their life, such things can confuse the younger viewer.
The first person to call this film problematic to me, gets a punch to the chops. There’s a sense of humor onscreen and I appreciate the levity. It’s just that there are a ton of issues regarding the sexual violence that could’ve been smoothed out. That being said, I can’t wait to see what the creative talent has on deck next.[/text_block_nav][text_block_nav title=”Conclusion”]Too Long Didn’t Read
