Gerard Butler pulls out the big guns as Kable in "Gamer."

Starring: Gerard Butler, Amber Valletta, Michael C. Hall
Directed by: Mark Neveldine (“Crank: High Voltage”) and Brian Taylor (“Crank: High Voltage”)
Written by: Mark Neveldine (“Crank: High Voltage”) and Brian Taylor (“Crank: High Voltage”)

If you thought “Crank” and “Crank: High Voltage” were overly-stylized, director/writer duo Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have got a headache-inducing film for you. The futuristic flick “Gamer” says nothing that hasn’t been said before about the media or the economy or any other social issue it thinks it’s intelligent enough to examine. It might have been more feasible than it turned out to be if Neveldine and Taylor weren’t so worried about the “cool” factor and actually focus on something more than editing room choices.
