Gamer 3D

 (2009)

Gamer 3D Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Set in the near future, a time when mind-control technology has taken society by storm. Humans control other humans in a mass-scale, multiplayer online game. Reclusive billionaire Ken Castle has created the controversial form of entertainment, "Slayers," a hugely popular game that allows millions to act out their innermost desires and fantasies -- online -- in front of a global audience. Gaming has evolved into a terrifying new dimension- mind control-manipulation-people playing people. At the center is Kable, the superstar and cult hero of "Slayers," the savage, ultra-violent 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.

For more about Gamer 3D and the Gamer 3D Blu-ray release, see Gamer 3D Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Gerard Butler, Amber Valletta, Michael C. Hall, Kyra Sedgwick, Aaron Yoo, Logan Lerman

Gamer 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Gamer 3D is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films with both MVC (3D) and AVC (2D) encoded 1080p transfers in 1.73:1. I'm a bit at a loss as to how to properly explain the odd 1.73:1 aspect ratio, not just because both transfers display in 1.78:1 (something that readily happens due to overscan) but also because the first Blu-ray release of Gamer featured a 1.85:1 aspect ratio. This may have something to do with the side by side 2D/3D presentations, but I've personally never seen anything quite like this before. (Our screencapture process takes an absolute 1:1 screenshot which reproduces actual aspect ratio, irrespective of how it's ultimately displayed.) All of this said, the 2D presentation retains a nicely sharp and well defined look that offers excellent fine object detail even within an aggressively color graded environment and with contrast tweaked just as aggressively. This digitally shot feature offers the clean, relatively textureless, appearance that is a hallmark of the Red One camera, but offsetting that aspect are some vividly saturated colors and commendable amounts of shadow detail. Some of the contrast has been pushed to the point where the entire image is kind of fuzzily soft due to glowing whites, but generally speaking this is a stellar video presentation.

Things don't fare quite as well with the repurposed 3D conversion. While there's decent enough depth offered throughout this post conversion, what really hobbles the dimensionality is co-director Neveldine/Taylor's penchant for insanely quick cutting and rapid camera movements, many with the ever popular "jiggly cam" look, all of which deprives the image of depth if for no other reason than shots aren't held long enough to really establish things properly. The best scenes here are the brighter lit sequences, notably the Society segments, where foreground objects are clearly separated from the background elements. The dark sequences, which unfortunately include most of the battle scenes, tend to suffer, as there simply isn't enough light to generate a sense of dimensionality.


Gamer 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Gamer 3D's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 is everything that the film itself isn't: involving, immersive, bombastic and totally satisfying. While a lot of this track is excessively busy, with whiz bang foley effects careening through the surrounds to really astounding levels at times, nothing ever sounds crowded and prioritization is very smartly handled. Perhaps surprisingly, some of the most effective surround activity comes in some of the more relatively quiet sequences, including some of Kable's scenes in his jail cell, where the oppressive muffled sounds of the prison poke through the side and rear channels. LFE is really impressive throughout this feature, most obviously in the really floorboard shaking battle scenes where nonstop barrages of gunfire and explosions almost punch at the listener with air pressure changing force. Dialogue is very cleanly presented and is quite directional some of the time. Dynamic range is extremely wide throughout the film.
