Product Description

Product Description

PLEASE NOTE: This title includes a Blu-ray 3D disc, which is only compatible with 3D Blu-ray players and Playstation 3. A standard Blu-ray is also included which will play on all standard Blu-ray players. Now in state-of-the-art 3D, Gamer stars Gerard Butler 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.

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.

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.

A person talking with a slayer:

Person: “Who aims? The player or the slayer?”
Slayer: “I’m the hand. Someone, somewhere else is the eye.”

The above dialogue comes from this sci-fi action film and pretty well sums up what this movie is about.

This movie takes video gaming to the extreme and makes you wonder if there are any boundaries to what humans will do to amuse themselves.

Briefly, in a near-future multiplayer video game called “Slayers”, death-row convicts are forced to do battle. Convict Kable (Gerard Butler), the highest-ranked warrior of this game and controlled by Simon (Logan Lerman), a skilled teenage gamer, must survive thirty gaming sessions in order to be set free. Will he do it?

Ken Castle (played over-the-top by Michael C. Hall), creator of not only “Slayers” but also “Society,” is the main antagonist in this movie.

This movie is definitely not for everyone. Yes, it has lots of action (almost non-stop) and special effects that held my attention but also contains excessive amounts of sex and nudity, violence and gore, profanity, as well as frightening, intense scenes. Be forewarned!

I liked the background music found in this movie.

Finally, the DVD itself (the one released in 2009) has four extras.

In conclusion, this movie is not for everyone but adrenaline-junkies will certainly appreciate it. After watching this movie, you may ask yourself:

“Who’s playing who?”

(2009; 1 hr, 25 min excluding end credits; wide screen; 24 scenes; rated ‘R’)

*** 1/2
