In a future mind-controlling game, death row convicts are forced to battle in a 'Doom'-type environment. Convict Kable, controlled by Simon, a skilled teenage gamer, must survive thirty sessions in order to be set free. Or won't he?
Ken Castle is extremely rich, popular and powerful since he invented and started exploiting the virtual online parallel reality games, in which people can either pay as user or be paid as 'actor' in a system of mind-control. The ultimate version, Slayers, fields death row convicts as gladiators in a desperate dim bid for survival, which no-one made yet. The champion, John 'Kable' Tillman, was scheduled to die just before he'ld gain release, but he persuades his teenage 'handler' to hand over the reins so he can fully use his talents and experience. Thus Kable escapes to freedom, only to be chased illegally by Castle's men, yet fights back all the way to his HQ and challenges his evil hidden plans. Written by
One of the album covers shown in Simon's music library is Antithesis from a Kansas death metal band Origin. See more »
(at around 1 min) In the scene showing the pyramids in Egypt, the word "Kable" is displayed backwards in Arabic letters. Since Arabic is read from right to left, the way it is shown in the movie, it would be read as "Lebaak". See more »

About As Entertaining As Having Your Legs Amputated
I was really looking forward to watching this movie. The storyline was promising and i actually like Gerard Butler. After half an hour im thinking to myself ... OK this has GOTTA get better, but sadly it didn't, it got a whole lot worse tho. What started as a movie with a decent plot rapidly turned into an extended marilyn manson video, it made absolutely no sense, the characters were about as deep as a dwarfs bathtub and at one point i actually had to stop myself from gouging my eyes out with a rusty spoon. I, honestly, cannot think of anyone who would find this movie entertaining in any shape or form and can say with complete seriousness that I've had more fun at the dentist ... having a root canal
