Gamer: Movie Review

I finally got to watch Gamer, the Gerard Butler movie that I wanted to watch earlier this year, but didn’t manage to find the time. Gamer’s premise is set in the near future, where the Internet is pretty much prevalent and gives rise to the use of real humans as controllable avatars in a Playstation Home lookalike called Society.

On the other hand of the scale, there’s the popular team deathmatch game called Slayers, which features death row convicts as player characters, along with plenty of explosions and gibs. Gerard Butler’s character, Kable, is just several victories away from winning his freedom, but the creator of the game wants him dead, not only to generate publicity but also to hide incriminating evidence against him.

From here, the movie slides from trying to do some social commentary (and stereotyping) to “Hero-shooting-up-everything” mode. I can’t help but feel that the movie is built around explosions and ludicrous scenes with a total lack of common sense and Rambo 4, starring a geriatric Sylvester Stallone is much better than this.
