Thoughts on Gamer (the Movie) *SPOILERS*


  **SPOILER WARNING*   
 
 




 
To be honest, I was pretty dissapointed in this movie. I was expecting Ludacris to have more screen time. I was expecting it to have more game references. I was expecting it to be more humorous. I hated the ending, they didn't explain anything, they didn't explain what exactly happened to Kable, they didn't explain who those group of people helping out Kable were. The ending was afwul, the only thing that happened at the end was Kable killing Castle. Also I couldn't be any more dissapointed in Ludacris' crappy borderline robotic acting, he isn't convincing at all. One thing I do have to admit I liked about the movie was the beginning scene, very actiony, very voilent, very gamey, totally in your face, it was the only part of the movie that delivered for the most part.

Yeah, I figured it would suck.

Really? You were disappointed? In a movie about a kid controlling a dude in a video game? That has Ludacris in it? 
  
Everything about this movie is offensive to my intelligence. I hope it crashes and burns.

i didn't see the movie but who is kable and castle? 
 
ludacris is a very disappointing actor. the only movie he was good at was the small part in 2 fast 2 furious. max payne he was horrible in. i don't really plan on seeing the movie.

I've been predicting that very few actual gamers will see this movie.

Posted by Pinkshley1

Who didn't predict this movie would be bad? And as for Ludacris acting, the only movie I've seen him in was Rock N' Rolla, and he was awful in that.

I wonder if Gamer is eligible for TANG...

Posted by JJOR64

I don't even want to see it.  It looks terrible.

Nah, it's not based on a certain video game.

Sucks but anytime there's a mainstream Hip Hop artist in a big budget movie today, it's going to blow!

The producers have taken it's title from a Marketing Firms pigeon hole, that also happen to be a Fanboy's favorite word. This does not bode well.
I guarantee the production team and director felt that the only qualification required to make this film was to play half an hour on Halo 3 multiplayer, which will be confirmed if Gerrard Butler teabags Ludarchris for calling him a "Noob" (actually, I'd probably pay to see that).

Just knowing it existed at some point made me hate it immediately. Hope you enjoyed wasting your time and money on something that everyone knew would be garbage, on top of a big marketing stunt that is pretty much an insult to us.

You know when a movie's tagline is "WHO'S PLAYING YOU?" it's gonna suck.

I remember when the first trailer came out, I'm surprised this got a theatrical release. Granted, I haven't seen it, but it just stank of "straight to DVD" to me.

Have you seen Death Race (2008)?  Did you like it?  And, if so was it as entertaining as that movie?  If Gamer was as fun as Death Race, then it still could be worth watching even though it's full of plot holes.

I have no idea what you thought what it was about this movie that was going to be any good?

Really? So, Gamer wasn't a good movie? How can I best voice my shock and surprise.

@PenguinDust: Never seen Death Race, sorry.

Death Race was awesome, Gamer totally gives of a Death Race vibe, but im not gonna see it because i can't stand ludacris he is so fucking bad in every movie he is in.

TANG.

Posted by Ragdrazi

It also gives off a Running Man vibe and an original 1975 Death Race movie vibe. It's a terrible idea for a movie that's been done to death.

@Emandudeguyperson: 
yeah i was really really dissapointed after having seen the trailer, the only good part about it was the dancing scene, that was awesomely ridiculous

It's GB man, they can make exceptions. 
 
But yeah, I don't think it looks too good either...

Mos Def is the only rap artist (alright I guess rap =/= hip hop) who's a good actor. No, seriously, that man can act.

i agree 100% 

ludacris is such a bad actor though, i would be happy if he had less screen time.
