So the movie Gamer reminded me of Existenz because there was this same out of body/mind experience. In the beginning it was a bit confusing to try and understand what reality was and what was in the game. It was also graphic and gory. The main character Kable was one of the guys that were actually in the game. The people in the game were mostly convicts, including Kable. Kable’s only goal and sense for life was who he left on the outside, his daughter and wife. All he wanted to do was to win the game and see his family again. A 17 year old kid, Simon, was the one controlling Kable’s moves in the game and in order for him not to die Simon had to release him and let him fight on his own.

Without giving away most of the movie I’ll stop there, but all in all it was an ok movie. It sure was interesting and a bit confusing at times. There was a lot of blood and extreme violence which I could have lived without.
