    Saw him last night and boy, what a disappointment actually.

    I'd expected a lot more from this film. The ending was pretty good, but during the film I had a lot of Wtf moments and it turned quite boring as well.

    <div align="center"><object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/9ubYTIazskQ"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/9ubYTIazskQ" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object></div>



    THe idea behind it was nice though and Gerard Butler was pretty cool as well. The film is about games being played by people, controling actual people. So on the one side you have this society-like game, wher you just control others and play them (sorta like Playstation's home with real people) and on the other hand, you have the game 'slayers'.
    This is a shooter in which the players control prisons that have been sentenced to deathrow. If, as prisoner, you can survive for 30 matches, you get to walk free again.
    Of course, nobody has ever managed it and of course Gerard Butler is wrongly accused.
    Pretty straight-forwarded stroyline there, which tended to make it boring for me.


    But like I said, the idea is nice and it does make us realize what things might come to and such. Especially the 'society' part was sorta interesting, especially when you see who plays what...
    Seemed sorta like the future dreams of chatbox molester if you catch my drift...


    But anyhow, who has seen it and what are your thoughts? :)

    this movie was terrible. horrible acting, poor execution, and probably the worst story ever. It's like Death Race meets The Matrix plus PS3 Home.

    the only thing appealing about this crappy film was the pistachio butter.

    This part was true. Although there was also some eye candy in the movie that made it somewhat more enjoyable.

    Don't post then. You're honestly looking for a ban here very soon if you keep it up (one that won't be lifted in v4).

    Haha there were some good shots of headlights here and there. The whole thing with that huge blob guy sort of ruined that.

    the entire storyline was a mess, the concept was good, but everything else was just awful.

    The movie itself wasnt that bad. I enjoyed it a bit. I think that personally there were some parts that could use fixing... Like the battles coulda been longer but the movie itself was pretty good. The overall length of this movie kinda made me sad but once again it wasnt that bad the story was decently put together.
