Gamer - DVD Review


Starring Gerard Butler, Michael C. Hall, Kyra Sedgwick, Amber Valletta, Logan Lerman, Ludacris, Alison Lohman, John Leguizamo, Terry Crews, Milo Ventimiglia, John DeLancie, Aaron Yoo, Zoe Bell and Keith David.
Directed by Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor.

There's a dance sequence toward the end that the villainous Michael C. Hall does with some other people whose movements he controls, to the tune of Sammy Davis Jr.'s "I've Got You Under My Skin." Youtube it. That is the only worthwhile scene in this dark look at a near-future where humans have become so desensitized that they can control real people in shoot-em-up video-game scenarios.

(Okay, Keith David's one scene as an interrogating cop is cool too, but that's because he's Keith David.)
