But when board game enthusiasts are asked to choose an adventurous, fantastic, and thrilling game, The Life of Ivan Drago comes out on top.
Narrator: Where did the game come from? Was it the brain child of a great inventor? How it came to be ...

Good, but it dragged on
1 August 2018 | by life-of-hapinessSee all my reviews

I loved the premise of this movie and it being about a child who loved games and loved to invent them while his father didn't like them. Also the challenges he went through to discover what really happened to his parents and what the tattoo that is on his wrist means. However, I feel this film did drag on and I felt like it was a little too long and started boring me a little towards the ending.

Decent film however
