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...

Gamer Theatricall Review

Gamer is one of those movies that you either love or hate. Online gaming takes on new meaning in a futuristic world. In that world, players at home can direct convicts to do their bidding in a wickedly violent, multiplayer competition, and death-row inmate Kable...

Gamer (2009) Movie Review (Blog)

I just wanna start off by saying that I'm a big fan of both Crank and Crank: High Voltage. Neveldine/Taylor are two fun adrenaline fueled directors who know how to make a fun enjoyable, HARD R, film. Now, when I first saw the trailer for Gamer I just said,...

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 Review

And just like Crank movies, the crazy filmmakers Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have returned with yet another outrageous, far-fetched, adrenaline rush action film that's sure to amuse those who think, live and breathe the same way they do. GAMER is… a movie for...

Gamer — Film Review

[b Bottom Line: Crass, nonstop action triumphs over narrative and character in this movie-length simulation of a video game.[/b "Gamer" takes up the wild action where the two "Crank" movies left off. Following the boxoffice success with those films, co-creators Mark...

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’ 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 (2009)

Starring Gerard Butler, Amber Valletta, Michael C. Hall, Kyra Sedgwick, Terry Crews, Ludacris Directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor It's the future. A future that could very possibly happen in our lifetime. A future we've largely seen in movies already. Most of...

Gamer Review: Awesome!

I think the title says it all. Gerard Butler puts in a scarily good performance. At some points in the movie, you don't know if he's being controlled or being himself. The direction is especially good for a movie like this. Action movies can leave lots of plot holes...

Video killed the video game star

[i Gamer is a futuristic tale where the video icons are real people.[/i The question of what to do with the cutthroats and murderers who occupy American prisons was solved years ago by the movies: you make them run for their lives for the amusement of TV game show...
