Profile of Gamer

Gamer can be described as rough, suspenseful, and bleak. The plot revolves around a future dystopia, imprisonment or confinement, and imaginary themes. The main genres are thriller, action, and sci-fi. In approach, Gamer is fantastical and serious. The storytelling is fast paced. It is set, at least in part, in a prison. Gamer is well suited for a boys' night. Note that it involves strong sexual content, strong violent content, and nudity.

Excellent effects and sound engineering. Pure science fiction, in that it projects current tech trends into the future and tells a story which exploits resulting social tensions. Actually a very moral cautionary tale. Not for the squeamish, however.

Frenetic action and frantic satire run amok in this wacky action flick/ biting social commentary/ disturbing vision of the future. This is is not the kind of film I would normally see in the theater but after seeing the directors' last effort Crank...
