If I tell you Gamer is by the makers of Crank, that might tell you everything you need to know about whether or not you want to see this movie. In a ridiculous dystopian future, video games use real people as avatars. You can be play in the debauched "Society" or control convicts fighting for their lives in "Slayers". Our hero (Gerard Butler) is one such Slayer, falsely accused of murder and intent on escaping the "game" and being reunited with his family. And of course, put a stop to a world-conquering conspiracy by the games' creator (Michael C. Hall). Plenty of gratuitous T&A, ultraviolence and music video effects ensue. Depending on your point of view, it's a meta black comedy or a casually offensive action flick. It's not bad if you're looking for action gags and online culture spoofing, and Hall has some delightful eccentricities, but don't go looking for deep character motivation or anything. It pretty much does what it says on the tin.

Well I can't say the story isn't good, cause it's one of a kind, but the movie wasn't good at all

Not bad! Interesting and scary topic, special visual style, some really unique images... the whole movie is somehow unusual, but I think it works. It's really tough to think about the possibility that people might do such things to each other in the future... but I guess there's very little that human beings would not be capable of.

Gerry Butler was amazing - again.

FYI, not understanding /= bad movie

I think it was good. You can't really compare it with any other movie (not that I can think of one).

Anyway, Gerard Butler is one of my most favourite actors and Michael C. Hall was just brilliant as Castle.

I liked it, maybe not for it's dramatic content, plot outline, or other traditional merits, but it's rare to see a movie exploring the modern gamer culture without it being patronizing, phony and/or clueless. Far from perfect, this was still a good try.

Also, love Gerard Butler, he is my favorite actor to overact without it looking overacting. Michael C. Hall is another one of my favorites, but I had a hard time relating or let alone sympathizing with his character, but I suppose that was the whole point of making Mr. Castle the epitome of sleazy MoFo.

A mix of Running Man. Death Race. Death Race 2. And a million other similar films. Quite poor.

Smacks alot of "The Running Man". This could have been an excellent movie. Except for some over acting and poor directing
