Last week, Microkhan sang the praises of Surviving the Game, particularly the strong supporting work done by Gary Busey. We stand by that opinion, but we must confess there’s a reason that Ernest R. Dickerson’s 1994 action flick isn’t part of the mainstream cinematic canon. And that reason is the video above, in which the normally solid F. Murray Abraham chews up the scenery like a hungry pitbull gnawing on a T-bone. You half expect him to follow up by shouting, “Mendoza!”
Though we shouldn’t be too hard on Abraham. He earned a lot of residual goodwill for his turn as Salieri in Amadeus. And the dude’s great at getting flung out of a chopper.
