GAMER is a high-concept action thriller
set in a near future when gaming and entertainment have
evolved into a terrifying new hybrid. Humans control other
humans in mass-scale, multi-player online games: people play
people...for keeps. Mind-control technology is widespread,
and at the heart of the controversial games is its creator,
reclusive billionaire Ken Castle (Michael C. Hall). His
latest brainchild, the first-person shooter game "Slayers,"
allows millions to act out their most savage fantasies
online in front of a global audience, using real prisoners
as avatars with whom they fight to the death.
Kable (300's Gerard Butler) 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.
