Horrible movie. A rather clean the toilet than watch this movie again.
could have been done better
I thought it was great - would recommend, very different & more to it than I think most people actually realise. Yes, gross is some places but isn't life ?
Excellent movie which didn't insult the viewer's intelligence by blatantly spelling everything out. I think it may have been a bit too bright for the average viewer but that's what made it special. Loved it.
Exciting actioner with Butler a standout. I can't recommend it enough!
I thought this movie was nicely done. It brought forth some interesting and very creative ideas. Incredible action as well. I'd recommend it.
I LOVED HOW THEY INTEGRATED GAMES WITH REAL LIFE.
Movie was okay, if you had nothing else to do. Little disappointed in the gross sexuality in it. Makes me nervous when I see parents bringing their 9-10 year olds in. Not right.
5 out of 5 stars.
Can't wait to see this again! GAMER is that rare commodity -- a thinking man's blockbuster.
lame the worst movie this year to much creepy scenes not enough action
Very misleading promo...it should have been restricted with the types of things they were showing! Definitely not for pre-teens who are expecting an action movie and they get non-stop porn and S&M!! It was disgusting and amoral!!
Horrible! Watch something else.
lame.... if you like Crank 1 and 2 you'll like Gamer. Good concept, terrible directing.
Easily my favourite film of the year so far, GAMER is one of those movies that's simply ahead of its time. Remember, nobody liked BLADE RUNNER when it first came out, either...
How come the lowest in the rating is one star. This movie should be rated zero star.
I'm glad that I fell asleep.
This movie was horrible. I had no idea what was going on for a good hour and 30 mins.
Interesting take on the mind-control/big-brother/desensitized-future-culture concepts. (and of course they've been done before, what hasn't?) Not a lot of plot and character development before the action gets heavy. For my part, I'm a sci-fi fan from way back and I liked it. And my 16 yr old son liked it as much as me.
I went to this not really expecting too much. Went with some friends that wanted to see it. I thought it was really good. Very original and lots of action. I just wish they went into the story more.
We walked out it was so bad.
This movie is unique and it is certainly must see. Brilliant acting by Gerard Butler. Many people might have missed the concept of the movie, but it is a matter to think more and find out how strong the hunger for control and moral devalvation of human society is. Don't listen to the negative reviews because nowadays, it seems most people like more pointless movies such as Hangover.
This movie did not ave a very original concept it has been doe before with Running Man and The Condemed and Death Race, but it did add a unique twist to it the action was difficult to follow and I ws at times confused the acting was okay Alison Lohman and Kyra Sedgwick were the best and Amber Valetta coul have been good but her part was so small and not to mention exploitive I did enjoy some parts of this movie but would not consider seeing it again Watch for more reviews from Haddonfield31
if you live near a theater that's showing this movie, start looking for a new place to live, even living close to this piece of sewage can lower your IQ to 0 . i hate it so much it makes me angry , i want my money back , my time back , and an apology from the studio for releasing this movie and expecting the public (me) to watch this uber disgustingly bad pile of human feces. Michael c. hall doing a lip sync / dance to a Sammy Davis song made me want to cry for that embarrassment. nuff said N.D
I think GAMER had the right concept and it's very original for a movie. It's too bad there was little character development. The director also made a poor job directing it.
What a great movie! Can't wait to see it again this weekend!!!!
good movie, people need to learn how to properly objectify a movie based on its type and properties. Don't risk looking stupid making a comment about a movie because it wasn't a thriller and you came to see a thriller.
I had to hold nose while I walked out on this stinker. The only reason I stayed as long as I did was to finish my large popcorn.
Weak overall...laughably bad at times.
