Trailer



Plot

In 2034, mind-control technology has taken society by storm, and a multiplayer on-line game called Slayers allows gamers to control human death row prisoners in mass-scale deathmatches. Any inmate who lives through 30 matches wins his freedom. Simon (Logan Lerman) controls Kable (Gerard Butler (5 walls)), the on-line champion of the game, having won 27 matches and lived through them all. When a virus hacks into the video mainstreams broadcasting a message from an elusive rebel group, Simon is offered the chance to communicate with Kable while in-game, which is not allowed. After a stranger gives Kable a warning that the game's mastermind plans to kill him, Kable is broken out by using a truck in-game.

Kable is taken to the rebels leader (Ludacris) who explains that the mind control technology used on Kable and the other Slayers can potentially be used without discretion on anyone, potentially leading to the extinction of independent thought. He also gives Kable directions to where he can break his wife out of the mind control she is under. Kable arrives, and, after a brief shootout with security, manages to escape with his wife. While the rebels attempt to remove the cells from his wifes mind that make the mind control possible, Kable is taken into another room. The leader reveals that Kable was once a soldier, working on a future cellular control project. His friend was the first to receive the cell transplant. However, the owner of the game Slayers, a billionaire named Ken Castle (Michael C. Hall), decided to discover the true limits of the mind control. After forcing Kable to kill his friend, Kable is convicted of first degree murder.

Some four years later, the game Slayers came out, with Kable as one of the leading stars. Kable is then informed that his daughter was with a foster family, which happens to be Castle himself. Kable infiltrates Castles' mansion, but is confronted by Castle who is singing and dancing to music, all the while forcing other death row inmates to dance along with him. After a brief fight between Kable and the inmates, Castle leads him into a room with a large basketball court. Castle reveals that he also received the transplant, however, the cellular structure in him allows him to control anyone else who has the cells. This is proven when, having obtained a knife, Kable attempts to kill Castle only to find himself frozen still. Castle then savagely beats Kable and brings in his wife and daughter. Meanwhile, rebel members manage to broadcast their confrontation all over the world.

Kable is forced to crawl to his family, and Castle then attempts to force him to kill his own daughter. After a brief struggle of wills, Kable manages to move the knife away. Simon then returns in control of Kable and, using his controller software that he uses to control Kable in-game, Kable tricks Castle into using his controlling cells to stab himself the stomach. After Castle dies, Kable requests for Castles' employees, who have been watching, to release the family from their control. They do this, and, with the words "Well played, Kable", depart. The movie then ends with Kable driving through a tunnel in Glacier National Park with his daughter and wife in the car.

Production

In May 2007 (12 years ago), Lakeshore Entertainment re-teamed with Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the creators of Crank (2006, 13 years ago), to produce a "high-concept futuristic thriller" called Game. Neveldine and Taylor wrote the script for Game and were slated to direct the film, while actor Gerard Butler (5 walls) was cast into the lead role.

Production took place in Albuquerque, New Mexico for a 53-day shoot. Filming was at the Albuquerque Studios and on location around Albuquerque. Multistory sets were built on parking lots in downtown Albuquerque to depict buildings that were blown up in the film, and other sets were built on the backlots near the studios. The crew used special hand-held Red One digital cameras, which allowed the special effects team to begin work normally done in post-production after each day's shooting.

In Mar. 2009 (10 years ago), the film's working title was changed from "Game" to "Citizen Game". In May 2009 (10 years ago) another name change was announced, the new name being "Gamer".

Reception

Initial reception has been mixed to negative. The website Dread Central awarded Gamer four out of five, saying "Gamer is a top of the line action/terror trip with more exploding carcasses than the latest installment of Rambo." The movie Stage gave the movie a score of 8/10 calling it "a look at the dangers of a media-infested world, of nonstop advertisement and of the future of youth in a world with ever expanding interactive technology." The New York Daily News, however, disagrees - the reviewer marked the movie off with one star out of five, calling it a "Xerox of a Xerox," citing a number of movies it takes elements from, including The Matrix and Rollerball. RVA Magazine pointed out that Gamer's plot is overly similar to Death Race (13 walls) and commented that Gamer "hates its primary audience" and "tries to criticize the commercialization of violence, even though it itself is commercialized violence.". IGN gave the movie a 4/10 calling it "a frustrating film". The movie currently holds a 21% "Rotten" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and in spite of having thirty four posted reviews, they have yet to post a consensus.
