While some avid players might dream of the day they can step into their favorite video game, for Kable (Gerard Butler) this high-tech reality is a nightmare. Remotely controlled by a young gamer named Simon (Logan Lerman), Kable is forced to be the first-person-shooter in this violent form of entertainment created by a reclusive billionaire (Michael C. Hall). Hoping to gain his freedom, the gladiator-like pawn is desperately trying to reach "Game Over."

MPAA Rating: R for frenetic sequences of strong brutal violence throughout, sexual content, nudity and language.
