GAMER (not screened for critics)

Starring: Gerard Butler, Michael C. Hall, Alison Lohman, Amber Valletta, Kyra Sedgwick, Ludacris and John Leguizamo

Story: Kable is the superstar and cult hero of the ultraviolent "Slayers." Kable is controlled by Simon, a young gamer with rock star status who continues to defy all odds by guiding Kable to victory each week. Taken from his family, imprisoned and forced to fight against his will, the modern day gladiator must survive long enough to escape the game to free his family, regain his identity and to save mankind from Castle’s ruthless technology. (Lionsgate)

Rated: R

Bottom Line: Looks to be a RUNNING MAN meets GLADIATOR hybrid. I was actually excited to see GAMER…and then I got played.
