Advertising executive Shunsuke Sakuma (Naohito Fujiki) is at the top of his game. Winning numerous advertising awards, the cool Shunsuke lives a life most men only dream of. He luckily lands a new massive product campaign for Mikado Beer, Japan's largest conglomerate corporation. Working on the project for almost two years with an estimated three-billion Yen invested, the project would "make" Shunsuke. But in its final stages, the project is suddenly dropped by a single man - Katsutoshi Katsuragi (Ryo Ishibashi) the son of the original founder and Vice President of Mikado Beer.
Declared "incompetent" by peers in the world of advertising and replaced by a nobody on the project, Shunsuke gets drunk and drives to Katuragi's mansion to "tell him off." But instead, he sees a girl climbing out from the house and trails her. The "girl" happens to be Juri Katsuragi (Yukie Nakama), Katsutoshi Katsuragi's eldest daughter from a mistress. Shunsuke approaches Juri, threatening that he would tell her father if she did not come with him. Initially, Shunsuke planned to bring her back to Katuragi to win his favor, but after thinking things through, he plots a "payback" scheme by kidnapping Juri. Juri, not wanting to stay with her father, goes along with the kidnapping. Scared of the media frenzy that would result if they found out that he had an extramarital affair, Katsutoshi Katsuragi goes along with the kidnapping. . . or does he? In a world of players where everyone is playing a game, who is the one to pull the strings? . . .

1. One of the best thriller I've seen in years! [Rating: 8/10]
Unlike donna, i found both the main leads' character very interesting. Before watching the movie, I though it was just like another kidnapping movie where the victim will fall in love with her kidnapper or something on that pace. However, the beginning proved me wrong; nonetheless there seem like nothing was special going on. Gradually, the plot showed me otherwise. I was impressed with so many twists and the cleverness within the plot. It is true that it is hard to figure out when it is geniue and when it is lies. The characters itself seem to be playing games nonestop, hint the title of the movie. But once by once you will appeciate and anticpate what is going to happen next. Overall, I really recommend this movie to those who are looking for something much more than a cheap thriller romance.

2. The Good One [Rating: 9/10]
I think this one is one of the best drama from Yukie and Fujiki. The story is good and unpredictable also it's fun and enjoyable, even though I'm a bit disappointed with the ending (hope the director and the producer won't make the same mistake again for the ending) . They are really a perfect couple, and hope they can play together as a couple again with a happy ending.

You're not missing anything if you haven't seen this movie. In fact, it would be hard for me to even recommend this movie to fans of Fujiki Naohito and/or Nakama Yukie. Their characters were pretty boring and unmemorable, in fact I wasn't able to sympathize with either one of them. Even though the main leads were great in their acting, they couldn't save the plot of the movie which is the main reason for my giving it such a low score.

I only credit the storyline of the movie with the fact that it surprised me with the first twist, but after that it was so repetitive with more and more twists/backstabbing. In the end, I couldn't even appreciate whatever love there was between Satsuhama and Juri. The ending was really terrible, it should have just ended with the hotel scene but I guess the screenwriters thought that another "twist" could be added.

Tons of unexpected twists is the main highlight of this movie. Although the conclusion wasn't great, but at least it did provide the very last twist to the whole movie. Was great fun watching and trying to predict the characters' next moves.

If it had been a different ending, I would have given it a 7. Or even an 8. Really clever movie and I thoroughly enjoyed everything up to the last 5 minutes of it. But honestly, the last twist was really unnecessary.

Very good. The story is awesome and unpredictable even the ending is not so good, but the love story between Fujiki and Yuki is really touching and the story is really about the game. Fujiki was so cool in this drama/film and Yuki was so pretty and modern (I like the way she dressed in here), they were good played together became couple.
