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.

 Brutal but very entertaining

This is what I consider a proper action movie. Decent, original story line. Good lead who you will definitely route for. Plenty of brutally violent and exciting action sequences. I didn't expect too much and was very pleasantly surprised. Definitely one to add to my collection

 "..AWESOME.."

This was one of the most interesting action films of the year, great story, great cast and lots of original concepts! You can't have much more fun with a film. Loads of violence but all-round fun, you will be rooting for Gerard Butler, his character is pretty cool. Worth a look.

 Not as good as i thought it would be but still a good movie

every gamers dream would be this type of game lol the action was outstanding both in the game and outside it ... the story line was ok could have been better , its messed up in the other game social was just funny not in a good way let me tell you , and "peter from heros" ( his character was weird as out ) overall an ok action movie but nothing special

 Nothing New

A combination of The Running Man, Death Race, Surrogates and many other movies thrown into one.
Although its a tad confusing at first it's a fairly simple story. The beginning has you wondering what exactly is going on and to how exactly a storyline is going to be formed, there's a lot of information thrown around but nothing with depth. Throughout the movie thats not really anything to sink your teeth into and the story is a little one-dimensional.
The action at times is great but not brilliant, a lot of it is a little confusing with explosions going off in 10 different places at the same time. It gives you the genuine sense of being in a video game but you don't enjoy the action as much.

Overall: Gamer has some things to like but more to dislike. Although I didn't feel bored at all I also don't feel an urge to watch this again. The story is simple, the action isn't great and really, it's nothing new.
Neveldine and Taylor are probably some of the best new directors in Hollywood, they've got a lot of style, but even the cool visuals in this movie wasn't enough to make it great

 RELEASE ME!!!

From the mental directors of Crank we have Gamer and it is just as crazy as Crank with all the adrenaline rush action sequences that kids dream up without the Jason Statham obscenaries which was brilliant. This film has a bit more of a plot to it and kinda reminds me of "The Condemned" and "Death Race". Gerard Butler plays a very likeable lead as Kable who is trying to fight his way through Michael C Halls brutal game of Slayers to earn his freedom which is very engrossing but i found the Society game that ran side by side with Slayers to be very weird and a kind of parody to Sim City games. Overall im quite impressed by this film as pure entertainment value only for those who like action movies really but either way you should give it a go. Enjoy
