Gamer 2009

In the near future, you don't live to play... you'll play to live.
Mind-control technology has taken society by a storm, a multiplayer on-line game called "Slayers" allows players to control human prisoners in mass-scale. Simon (Lerman) controls Kable (Butler), the online champion of the game. Kable's ultimate challenge becomes regaining his identity and independence by defeating the game's mastermind (Hall).

I liked the first part very much. It showed a very disturbing possible future for mankind (of course in an exaggerated way): I'm not so sure if the rich part of mankind would not greatly enjoy the concept of Society or even Slayers.
However, the the second part was too very inventive and the ending overly simplistic. But all in all gamer is an entertaining if brutal flick that never gets boring because of the fast pacing plot and the huge amount of action scenes.

This is without doubt a modern day action movie with hints of the 80' and 90's classics. If you like action and something new go and see this you wont be disappointed.
