We thought this movie had amazing special effects. Watching in surround sound was pretty good too! It was quite similar to Death Race in some ways..
The thing that scares me about this movie is that it is quite believable that we could go this way. Quite brutal in some parts but good performances.
I loved this movie, great actors, great action and great story line =)
Fron the directors of CRANK, comes a fusion of blade runner, meets the fifth element, with a sprinkle of the running man thrown in for good measure. A future develops where humans can be controlled... Read more much like the computer generated avatars of today, but for real. Society has degraded to the point where one can either get paid to be controlled, or pay, to control someone else. It is inevitable that this form of entertainment would evolve, and it does. Prisoners on death row are given the chance to go into battle, but be controlled by someone else, in a life or death game, which for most is death. All you have to do, is survive 30 battles and you will be freed from prison, no questions asked.
The movie itself does do a good job of telling the story, it does move at a comfortable pace and whilst it isn't exactly for everyone, it is fair to say that gamer, could be a cult classic. An honest 6.7 out of 10.
Guns, geeks, explosions, blood and guts. Is it possible to get any better?
The movie has amazing effects, Great Actors, if you like crank, you will enjoy this. R18 rating, so goes with the territory, it has Nudity, violence, etc.
No for the Morally righteous, or the... Read more Politically correct, you will feel like you've been hit with a soft large hammer repeatedly.
Combining the artistic integrity and character depth of a PS3 game with the visual style and social conscience of gonzo porn, this is probably the prototype for 21st Century genre filmmaking. God help... Read more us all.
The retarded frat-boy co-directors/writers of this exploitative garbage would probably consider that to be a compliment.
Any fan of the action/sci-fi genre - or movies as a form of entertainment in general - should avoid at all costs. Re-watch Predator or The Matrix or rent the latest shoddily made b-grade offering from Van Damm/Seagal/whoever is the new pro-wrestler turned actor instead. Anything rather than encouraging the makers of this trash to believe there is an audience for their brand of adolescent nihilism.
The biggest load of rubbish I have seen in a long time!!!!!!! Bad story line. They use nudity, violence and swearing instead of substance. Waste of time and money. People with morals will not appreciate this movie in the slightest. Be warned.
Weird and in its own way brilliant. I found the story that people are playing people in real ego shooter games or sims believable. The movie has some "sick" scenes but under all the violence and sex... Read more it is also society critical. Good action movie too.
There were some interesting segments but there were also too many "action" segments which were just boring as their ilk had been done so many times elsewhere.
