Sean Kelly

My Thoughts on Gamer

Earlier this year, I was quite disappointed by Crank: High Voltage. As such, I was understandedly skeptical of Neveldine\Taylor's follow-up Gamer.

Well, it was a little better.

The film, especially in the early scenes, still had the ugly cinematography and gratuitous content that was present in Crank 2. In fact, I even noticed a few people walking out on the film.

However, once the main story got rolling, I found the film became somewhat watchable. In fact, the second half was so entertaining that I would have given the film a higher rating if it wasn't for the excesses.

7/10
