GamerIn a future mind-controlling game, death row convicts are forced to battle in a 'Doom'-type environment. To the players, Kable and the other inmates are just simulated characters. But, to a resistance group that opposes the game's inventor, Kable is a critical component of their plan to end the inventor's form of high-tech slavery.

Critic Reviews of "Gamer"L.A. WeeklySeptember 10, 2009
Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have slowly started garnering actual critical consideration for their Crank movies; with Gamer, they make another good case for taking them seriously.New York TimesSeptember 08, 2009
In the press materials Mr. Butler informs us enthusiastically that the movie "has all the hallmarks of Neveldine's and Taylor's sick, yet genius minds." At least he's half right.Toronto StarSeptember 08, 2009
Bodies and buildings blow up but this is carnage of the most lacklustre sort, with any momentum petering out long before it's "game over."Los Angeles TimesSeptember 08, 2009
It's a deeply cynical and joyless point of view, completely lacking in the winking visual style that made Crank worth a look.Hollywood ReporterSeptember 08, 2009
Crass, nonstop action triumphs over narrative and character in this movie-length simulation of a video game.Entertainment WeeklySeptember 08, 2009
As the brutish Kable, Gerard Butler must find out who's pulling his strings, but it's the audience whose chain gets yanked by this headache-inducing techno-violent mishmash.7M PicturesJuly 21, 2012
Like so many movies, the set-up and presentation of Gamer is awesome. The story, characters and writing... not so much.3BlackChicks ReviewSeptember 28, 2010
Wait for this one on Cable... jeez I'm saying that a lot. What is really going on in 2009?BrianOrndorf.comJune 02, 2010
Neveldine and Taylor simply spray their venom across the screen with little vision, once again making a friendly trip to the multiplex feel like undeserved torture.Groucho ReviewsFebruary 16, 2010
What to make of short-attention-span artists satirizing a short-attention-span world? [Blu-ray]Reel Film ReviewsFebruary 13, 2010
Incoherent and interminable...CinematicalDecember 17, 2009
At times striking, and at others silly, and and yet at others sickening, but never too stupid, at least not compared to so much else flash and pop peddled to the masses these days.
