Default Would Gamer be a good blind buy?

Well I know this movie has no release date yet for Blu-ray, and I haven't seen In theatres. Is It any good and would It be worth paying 27.99 for It?

Worth $27.99?

No way. Of course, I wouldn't pay $27.99 for any movie.


I saw it in theaters, it was average. Not very great, not terrible.


I'd recommend renting it before buying.

Looking at your collection, I would say you will probably like this movie. Though, as Diesel pointed out, the price is somewhat high for a blind buy ... or even a buy from those who really enjoyed it; I did but I won't buy it until the price is half that.

there are so many of these 'should i blind buy' threads... everyones taste is different, why would you take someone elses advice instead of simply renting it, or even just download the movie trailer and make your own call?!

If you like the Crank films, you'll probably enjoy this. Same directors and writers.

Because he'd like to hear the popular opinion. Sometimes I see a trailer for a movie and when I see it, I'm severely disappointed. It's better to get the popular opinion from people with some liability. That's why and maybe he's in the mood to buy a movie he does not own?

It was a fun little action flick. It was very sleazy and violent which I happen to like. I don't know if I'd drop $27.99 on it...maybe $15-$20.

[Show spoiler] Naked fat guy playing as female on a real life simulator nuff said.


The movie had a good premise but they complete butchered the execution and there are SO many wrong scenes that I will never sit though it again. It should be thrown into the use for torture bin.

If you can get it for $20 then go for it. I thought it was a fun flick. If you liked Crank 1 & 2 then you should like Gamer as it's from the same guys.

Loved it.The photograpy is awesome i think,many nice close ups just as Luc Besson does.And fantastic editing in the action (gaming)scenes.Whish there could be more of them.Butler is perfect for the role.
Out here in Norway the 2nd december ! (rent on the 25th)

I'd think it has more to do with how you feel about Gerard Butler and Michael C. Hall. I didn't care for Crank 2 (at least the latter half of it) and thought Crank was just alright. I saw this because after watching Dexter I'm a big fan of Michael C. Hall and was happy to see Butler return to the action genre after chick flick crap like The Ugly Truth. Butler was good in this but Michael C. Hall was just great.

Personally, i've learned from my blind buy experiences. After purchasing Crank 2 without seeing it first, i've sworn to myself to NEVER purchase a movie i haven't seen first. It's a recession man, redbox it for $1 and find out if you like it first. Way better option than spending $20-25 day of release and finding out its a steaming pile of crap!
