(12A) 95min

This science fiction action thriller from Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor the duo who brought us the wonderfully sick Crank films is set in 2034 when mind-control technology has taken society by storm, and a multiplayer on-line game called Slayers allows gamers to control human prisoners in mass-scale death matches. Any inmate who lives through 30 matches wins his freedom. Simon (Logan Lerman) controls Kable (Gerard Butler) the on-line champion of the game. Having won 27 matches with his every move tracked by millions, his challenge becomes defeating the game’s mastermind (Michael C Hall). Derivative and silly but thoroughly enjoyable, Gamer is modern exploitation filmmaking at its low budget best.

General release from Fri 4 Sep
