Product Description

Gerard Butler stars as Kable, condemned criminal and globally famous super-soldier in the ultimate multiplayer game, Slayers. Human controllers direct each thought and move of real-life prison inmates battling in hyper-intense environments where the goal is freedom and the penalty is death. But when Kable suddenly decides he wants out, his rebellion threatens the twisted plans of game creator Ken Castle (Michael C. Hall, TV's Dexter), who will stop at nothing to crush the renegade commando in this taut, adrenaline-packed action-thriller.

By THE MOVIE GUY HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 3 2015
Format: DVD
The film has a similar theme as "Rollerball." An individual becomes larger than the game, so the game must be changed to take care of the individual. Nanotechnology, the technology that makes friction free ketchup bottles, will allow us to place a controlling chip in a human's brain that will allow someone else to control their actions, speech etc. People pay to be controllers and get paid to be controlled.

There is a society aspect to the game where people are controlled for their own perverted pleasures. Criminals are controlled in a Slayer game where they fight with simulated automatic weapons. Kable (Gerard Butler) is our James Caan. He is a criminal on death row whose crime we see in a flashback. He is controlled by a 17 year old kid named Simon (Logan Lerman) as in Simon Says. After 30 successful games, a criminal gets set freed. No one has done it yet, Kable is close.

To prevent his freedom, a ringer with no controller (faster reflexes) is placed in the game to get Kable. There is also an anarchist group known as "HUMAN" who is at work sabotaging the Matrix, eh ah the system.

I liked the Marilyn Manson soundtrack, but I thought they tried to get too cute at the end and instead should have just gone with a quick "Running Man" ending. They should have shortened the film instead of burdening us further with the message that poor people will prostitute themselves to the rich who enjoy being in control.

Ah, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. They might make some crappy movies that really aren't THAT great, but I find them enjoyable nonetheless. I'm a Neveldine/Taylor fan because I really like their unique style and extremely violent/frenetic storylines. Crank is still my favourite, but Gamer and (yes, even this one) Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance were also entertaining.
And here we are with Gamer, a social commentary about our obsessions with games and desensitization with violence, which arrived in excellent condition. Gamer tells the story of Kable, a criminal on deathrow who's taken part in a game called Slayers, which pits criminal against criminal in a twenty-round tournament to the death. Even worse is the fact that, like all the other inmates, Kable is being controlled by a separate individual--in Kable's case, a seventeen-year-old boy. Anyone who can survive the entire game wins their freedom, but there's a catch--no one has ever beaten the game. For good reason.
This is another case of a movie that's better watched with a turn-your-brain-off attitude. I have no problem with no-brainer gore fests because no-brainer gore-fests are fun, and Gamer is no exception. If anything, this movie's worth owning for the frenetic action scenes.
And Michael C. Hall.

With that phrase,so ends John Tilman's nightmare for him and the family that gave him the courage he needed to survive the "game".And what a trip/game it was to get from A to B in this film.A non stop action flick from beginning to end,Gamer(released Sept/09)comes from the same imaginative team that gave us the high adrenaline Crank films,Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine;and there is no lack of that heart-fueling adrenaline in this flick either.
The story involves one John Tilman(aka Kable)who is the current rage in a game called Slayers.The game is real as are the players within the game.Each player has a real person controlling them from afar and John's happens to be a 17 year gaming whiz named Simon(Logan Lehrman).Through the immersing technology on hand Simon literally sees and hears everything John hears as he takes his "player"(John)through an intense fire-fight course from grisly beginning to bloody end.After surviving 30 games John will be allowed to leave the game and Simon has taken John,unprecedentedly,almost all the way through.
The creator of this gaming world,Ken Castle(Michael Hall),was also the creator of another wildly popular interactive game,the Sims-like Society.However Castle's dreams are over exceeding his grasp as his real motives lie in trying to control the rest of society.He hopes to be able to inject his brain controlling nanobots into millions of people thereby controlling everyone.But a rebel group called Humanz is out to stop Castle's grasp of power.They contact Simon and give him a mod that enables Simon to actually talk with John during game play.Inevitably this leads to John finally breaking out of the game during what was to be his last fight and tracking down his family.

Format: Blu-ray
I really had zero expectation for this movie; to be honest it was far from horrible, and not too shabby. The plot is basic criminals are implanted with nanotechnology so they can be controlled remotely by someone else. The main character Kable (Gerard Butler) has 3 more games to play to be freed. So from there you have chaos a plot based on an evil ideal from the creator of this game called "Slayers". I can say you know what this was a fun rental and the visual's were awesome the cinematography was beautiful. But I have to say the Guy from Dexter plays the bad guy and he was just awesome really great character and good casting. There are tones of plot holes but if you can check your brain at the door I think it's not a horrible movie. Recommended As A Strong Rental.
