Gamer

 (2009)

Gamer Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this excellent 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.

Gamer Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Gamer enters the Blu-ray realm with a strongly realized 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. Shot on the RedOne digital camera, the image boasts incredibly vibrant colors -- notably during the Society segments -- that contrast nicely with the equally strong dark, bleak, and murky world of Slayers. The film's excess of colors seem artificially bright, but by design and of no fault of the transfer. Perhaps no other disc can match the sheer onslaught of color as seen in the Society scenes, particularly considering the accuracy with which each shade is reproduced. The image is impeccably clean, and fine detail is rendered at an incredibly high level of excellence. Whether pores, lines, hair, sweat, or blood on close-up shots of human faces or the rough texturing of pavement or concrete barriers that serve as cover during one of the levels of Slayers, there's no shortage of exemplary detail and texturing to be found in practically every frame. Black levels, too, are excellent, most every darker scene featuring an impeccably dark but not overbearing shade that never veers towards an unnatural gray or otherwise excessively bright appearance. Additionally, flesh tones appear accurately rendered throughout. The only downside is several shots that go a bit too soft and very infrequent but nevertheless noticeable banding. All told, however, Gamer looks fantastic on Blu-ray.


Gamer Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Gamer gears up on Blu-ray with an explosive DTS-HD MA 7.1 lossless soundtrack. With the first action scene forward, there's no letting up with this one; intense, engaging, active, and loud, Gamer's soundtrack scrambles the brain and pushes even the best of sound systems to their limits with a barrage of sonic action extravaganza that's of reference quality with every gunshot and explosion. This isn't a disc with a lacking surround presentation; there's almost always something going on in the back channels, and none of it is superfluous or inserted merely for the sake of ensuring the listener hears something from the rear. The back channels make extensive use of action and atmospheric effects, each one naturally placed and appropriately aggressive, ensuring a full 360-degree sonic bonanza that's sure to make plenty of other action-oriented soundtracks jealous. Gunfire crackles around the listening area with pinpoint precision, whether the full-auto bursts of automatic weapons or ear-piercing round-by-round report of an FN Five-seveN pistol. Explosions come complete with a thunderous boom, and the film's hard rock beats are reproduced with an aggressive posture but infinitely clear presentation. Likewise, more subtle but still pronounced ambient effects round out an excellent mix, whether the rattling of a subway car rumbling down tracks or a dance club with plenty of atmospheric chatter and music to effectively recreate the lively locale. Also featuring faultless dialogue reproduction, Gamer offers a must-hear soundtrack on Blu-ray.
