About the Movie

At the center is Kable (Gerard Butler), the superstar and cult hero of "Slayers," the savage, ultraviolent first person shooter game. 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: In the press materials Mr. Butler informs us enthusiastically that the movie "has all the hallmarks of Neveldine's and Taylor's sick, yet genius minds." At least he's half right. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: As the brutish Kable, Gerard Butler must find out who's pulling his strings, but it's the audience whose chain gets yanked by this headache-inducing techno-violent mishmash. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Literally playing an action figure, bulky Butler doesn't deliver a performance so much as a workout routine; the best that can be said for him here is that he shows endurance. – Rob Nelson, Variety, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It's a deeply cynical and joyless point of view, completely lacking in the winking visual style that made Crank worth a look. – Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

this movie is amazing!

I saw this movie when it was in theaters and it was one of the best movies i've ever seen! it follows a gladiator named Kable who has to win his freedom from deathrow by winning a set amount of games (no one has yet acheived this). So he fights for his freedom from a crime which he was set up for. The ending is amazing and it is jam packed with action, Gerard Butler and most of all boobs. Have fun!
