Gamer Movie Review (Blog)

At first glance, this film may not appeal to the general public due to the title. I mean come on, Gamer should be all about shooting and killing and it should only be entertaining for the gaming enthusiast, right? Not really. In fact, what makes Gamer worth watching...

Movie Review – the Gamer (Blog)

Brisbane - Last week, I found myself wondering at the cinema trying to find a movie to watch. Finally I decided to go for Gamer, the movie which was showing for the 2nd day that afternoon, and not knowing how its review was, I took the risk to buy the ticket and...

Directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, known for both Crank films, Gamer is another adrenaline-fueled, action-packed film under this duo's belt. Starring Gerard Butler as Kable, and Michael C. Hall as multi-millionaire Ken Castle, Gamer takes its audience into...

Theatrical Review: GAMER

Rating: 8/10 Summer blockbusters, a genre unto themselves, rarely extend beyond the borders of a flat plot and big explosions into anything more thought provoking. Yet, they entertain us in a popcorn munching mindless daze. GAMER, brought to us by the dynamic duo...

Gamer is Deviant Fun

The movie "Gamer" is the most brilliantly hilarious, beautifully disturbing and dangerously mind-warping action-thriller I have seen in years. Your brain will melt. You will be offended. And you will love every moment it. The plot has all the prerequisites of a sci-fi...

Gamer: The Movie Review )Blog)

The movie sees Gerard Butler (300), play Kable, a death row inmate who is forced to participate in a brutal game in order to earn his freedom, and save his wife and daughter from the other side (?). The weird and interesting part is the “Game” is infact an actual...

‘Gamer’ Should Be Played Again and Again

An overplayed plot is eclipsed by thrilling cinematography Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's newest project "Gamer" is a combination of violent action, frequent nudity, and a corrupted world, but what it lacks in storyline, it makes up for in first-rate filming. Kable...

Movie Review – Gerard Butler’s Gamer

Behold! The action movie renaissance is upon us! A new generation of disaffected male youths who love 300 have made Gerard Butler the Schwarzenegger/Stallone du jour, and opened the door for films worthy of just such a ham-fisted hero. This truly is a return to the...

Gamer

I went into this fully expecting to hate it but then something strange occurred. The same crew behind the 'Crank' series of movies created a future world both real and terrifying. A world where advertising dominates entire buildings and a real life 'Sims' game called...

Gamer: A Violent, Satirical Epic

“We do not have adequate images for our kind of civilization…We are surrounded by images that are worn out, and I believe that unless we discover new images, we will die out. Die like the dinosaurs. And I mean it physically.” – filmmaker Werner Herzog, 1982 My...

Review: Gamer is a Blast

What if the video games people play were real? What if the reality TV craze goes to the next level and we watch people die instead of sleep around? What if society becomes so connected and intertwined that we lose all semblance of what it is to be human? And what if...

Review: Gamer

While the writing/directing team of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor devised a fast-paced thrill ride with 'Crank' and an over-the-line shockfest with 'Crank: High Voltage,' they seem to be straddling the line with 'Gamer.' Loads of action abound, and not a minute goes...

Gamer (Blog)

Sorry for the short hiatus, but here we go again. Today's selection is none other than the Death Race/Crank-esque film, Gamer. Gamer stars Gerard Butler(300) and Michael C. Hall(Dexter). This movie for me, was a much needed adrenaline pumping, action film with over...

‘Gamer’ is depraved, bloody fun

If you loved “Rollerball,” “ Death Race 2000 ” and their subsequent B-grade remakes, rush this instant to see “Gamer,” which opened Friday. Putting a high-tech spin on those familiar stories, the movie is aimed squarely at connoisseurs of high-concept,...

Gamer (Rated R) with Gerard Butler

Not what you would expect but entertaining. The main letdown of this movie is that you would expect Gamer to be a straight forward action pic. Instead it indulges in jump cuts and glitches (more jump cuts) which distract from what would be very interesting action...

Gamer — Film Review
