"GAMER is an 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. "Slayers," a first-person shooter game 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 "Slayers" who is controlled by Simon to defy all odds to victory each week...(Synopsis Source: Golden Village website)."

Nothing much to comment about as the story line is pretty straight forward. Castle, the bad guy created highly sophisticated technology to enable rich people to control prisoners by online gaming. Then, one of the prisoners "Kable" fights back to rescue his family and kill Castle in the end. I guess I am not get used to the way the camera shooting at some parts of the battle scenes with gunshots and explosions as it made me giddy, and even headache. If you like to play PC games like those Special Operation Forces against terrorists , you may like it. It's also not a film for kids as there are a lot of nudity scenes and my movie rating for this one is 2/5.
