The best video game movie ever?

May 29, 2009 - Nick Recchia Tom Worthington
Movies based on video games have not always been the best. But what about movies based on the video game world itself? What am I talking about exactly? I am talking about the upcoming movie "Gamer". Here is the synopsis:

"Game is a near-future action/thriller starring Gerard Butler (Kable) as the champion of an on-line game called "Slayers". Mind-control technology has taken society by storm and "Slayers" allows humans control other humans in mass-scale, multiplayer online game. With his every move tracked by millions, Kable's ultimate challenge becomes regaining his identity and launching an attack on the system that has imprisoned him. "

I have only seen one trailer for it but that is all I really needed to see. This looks like a pretty action packed movie that probably is helped by the fact that it isn't stuck following a video games script. What I mean is, since it is based solely on the gaming world and not a particular video game it is free to be looked upon without any previous notions of what it should or shouldn't be.

Could this possibly be the best video game movie ever? Only time will tell but I know that I will be looking forward to the September 4 release and hoping that it will be as good as the trailer looks.
