Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.
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.”
Gamer is rated R: for frenetic sequences of strong brutal violence throughout, sexual content, nudity and language.
