I've heard a lot of bad reviews for Gamer. Personally I really enjoyed the premise of the movie but it did got a little slow in the middle. I don't know how it could be "fixed" and everything in the movie was import to the plot. I really couldn't see cutting anything out?
Back to the positives though! I found the modern thirst for blood and the dis regrade for human life fascinating . It is really a modern day gladiator. Also I really like the Gamers evolution of avatars.
