What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Thin plot, bad characterisation and badly edited, frenetic action sequences
Paul Boekkooi Dié fliek smeek om die 'delete' knoppie
Kirk Honeycutt 'Gamer': no speacial moves
Will Sloan With its social commentary about a corrupt corporation, the low value it places on human life, and society’s increasing dependence on social networking, Gamer will come across as deep thinking to those who don’t think very deeply.
C. Fuchs There's an okay, if barely original story buried beneath the mayhem and ADD filmmaking, but no one will care once this cinematic cacophony runs out of quarters or loses its Internet connection.
Tomatometer With all of the hyperkinetic action and none of the flair of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's earlier work, Gamer has little replay value.
