Review
Yet another movie brought to you by the guys who did Crank 1 and 2.Everything has to be over the top for these guys.And if you are not a fan of the Crank series,you definitely won't be a fan of Gamer either.I'm not a fan of any of them cos watching movies like this makes me wanna punch someone out of pure irritation.
Direction is just simply horrible.Even though,Gamer has an interesting cast which don't even know why the fuck for cause the script is shit and even a 3-legged dog with syphilis can act in any of the roles.You have ridiculous scenes like Protaganist drinks a whole bottle of liquor,goes to battle drunk,finds a truck,pisses and pukes into the truck's gas tank so he can drive the fucking truck to freedom.Do I really really need scenes like that to be entertained?Sigh...
Fuckall editing as well.Another reason why I hate this movie is the MTV-esque style of cinematography which may be cool for a 3-5 min music video but really fucking irritating for a 2 hour movie.
What the fuck were Gerard Butler,Michael C. Hall and Kyra Sedgewick thinking when they signed for this shit movie???I really hope for their sake that they at least got paid well for this.
If you really want to know what the fuck is Gamer about,just watch Running Man(which at least I was entertained).

Please do not even think about watching this movie.Its a waste of time and money and it also insults your intelligence.

running man, deathrace and a whole range of similar movies. but Running Man was waaaay better. i like the pseudo Sims world though and yeah imagine if you really let one person, company or govt take over. It is already happening - not to that extent, but it is. We cannot just release our freedom to any organization willy nilly.

Kill the king, the king is dead. long live the king!
