Set in the future, Gamer sees humans controlling other humans in a real-life massive multi-player online games. The star of the game Slayers seeks his independence while attempting to bring down the mastermind behind it all. Gerard Butler and Michael C. Hall are the only good things in the movie but the movie is a mess and they are some many things wrong with it. The directors of the movie ( Mark Neveldine) (Brian Taylor) really can't directed at movie just look at ghost rider 2.

The premise could have been great in more capable hands. Unfortunately, the film is edited and directed with video game aesthetics in mind. Shots and scenes fly by so quickly, that you miss plot details (not that it matters - the plot is full of holes.) Even the action scenes are directed with so much moving cameras that it's difficult to tell what's going on. This is a low rent version of Running Man or any other survival genre films and it is far from being as captivating or suspenseful as those films.

"Gamer" by Yojimbo

In a near future society, death row inmates are given a chance of freedom by participating as living characters in an ultra violent videogame. Something akin to a next gen version of The Running Man, Gamer manages to be even more vacuous and daft than its Stephen King penned predecessor. A sterling example of everything that's wrong with contemporary cinema, it was clearly directed by a retard with ADHD and is full of enough irritating and pointless camera trickery to make Tony Scott blush. The empty script is little more than an excuse for gratuitous violence, nudity and bad language with absolutely zero depth, characterisation or any semblance of the kind of social or political commentary that The Running Man at least attempted. Michael C. Hall brought a little flamboyance to his evil t...

Please, No Sequel!!

Trash.....Completely disappointed in this movie and in Alison Lohman. Leguizamo should stick with his cross dressing movies like "Julie Newmar" you know, rolles he can relate too. Lohman was so great in "Matchstick Men", I don't know what happend here. I think Butler was anticipating another "300", well he got a gutter ball doing this movie. Sure some scenes were interesting, but the plot missed the point. this will go on my 'LIst" of good ideas gone bad. I never liked 'Dexter' so I had a bad opinion about Hall anyway. I'm not even going to get into the plot of the movie, cause the title says it all. I'm only glad I paid one dollar to rent this at Red Box. I think Keith David just needed the work, he's a lot better than this also. I give it two thumbs down, and not on the vi...

Gamer.

THIS FILM IS BAD.

Set in the near future where everybody is a dick and plays Society, a sim game gone wrong, the creator, Ken Castle (oddly enough played Michael C. Hall of Dexter fame) creates a new game in which deathrow prisoners are controlled via a computer to kill each other. The game is called Slayer, a sort of 3rd person shooter. The film revolves around Kable, a contestant in Slayer controlled by a hideously annoying little arsehole teenager who I would rather see get shot instead of Gerard Butler. Kable is unstoppable, after surviving 29 games. If he should win the 30th, he is set free to see his wife and kid. But instead, he leaves the game area to find Castle...because he can, I suppose. Or maybe so he can be set free. He finds Castle, kills him, happy ending.
