  • For long stretches of the PlayStation-minded Gamer, the action does drag. show more

  • I wonder if Gamer might make a good game; it certainly doesn't make a good movie. show more

    In later part of the movie when the main character talks to his owner that those NPCs are real person and if you shoot them they are actually die, young owner replies they are just psycho, I don’t care whether they are going to die. What can be possible in the movie is caused by the high technology which also cause the decrease of human’s dignity&
