Gamer 2009


description written by member Zara:

"Gamer" is a high-concept action thriller set in a near future when gaming and entertainment have evolved into a terrifying new hybrid. Humans control other humans in mass-scale, multi-player online games: people play people...for keeps. Mind-control technology is widespread, and at the heart of the controversial games is its creator, reclusive billionaire Ken Castle (Michael C. Hall). His latest brainchild, the first-person shooter game "Slayers," allows millions to act out their most savage fantasies online in front of a global audience, using real prisoners as avatars with whom they fight to the death. Kable (300's Gerard Butler) is the superstar and cult hero of the ultraviolent "Slayers." Kable is controlled by Simon, a young gamer with rock star status who continues to defy all odds by guiding Kable to victory each week. Taken from his family, imprisoned and forced to fight against his will, the modern day gladiator must survive long enough to escape the game to free his family, regain his identity and to save mankind from Castle's ruthless technology.

Gamer Movie Review by Zara (2/21/2010)

I ended up watching a couple of movies this weekend which applied a similar theory, that of people eventually getting to a point in the future where they no longer need to leave their homes in order to run their lives. This seems to be working to a degree already, with orders for everything from a week's groceries to a...

Gamer Movie Review by Martin (9/18/2009)

I can see myself getting hounded for giving "Gamer" 4 and a half stars, seeing as most websites are describing it as average, and most people down the pub after thought it was pish. Its like "Spiderman 3" for me all over again!

I realy enjoyed this though and i'm not ashamed to give my honest opinion. The film was...

Gamer Movie Review by Jarrod (9/7/2009)

'Gamer' takes the basic premise of The Running Man, and fuses it with Death Race and The Condemned; The Running Man is certainly the best of those three, and this derivative and absurd movie comes from Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the minds behind Crank and its sequel, so yes they know how to craft gory, bombastic...
