After a stunning victory at a cyber sport tournament, the winning gamers are awarded CDs with a brand new game. After playing this game, each of them is affected with some force, turning their gaming abilities into real ones. They each become the best fighters, shooters and racers in real life. However, this does not go unnoticed. Through blackmail, cheating and bribes, authorities offer the gamers a "job". But as soon as the lies are revealed it becomes clear that they are not heroes saving their country but nothing more than paid assassins. Moreover, the producer of the game is keeping many more of the same CDs, so many more "heroes" like themselves could also be produced. Now the gamers have to find the CDs and either destroy them or create an army of gamers and rule over all. The team becomes divided into two, each pitted against the other.Written by

A surprisingly fresh and well made action movie from Russia. Quality of production is practically on par with big Hollywood action flicks.
I guess it should not come as a real surprise as Russians have produced other decent action/sci-fi movies in the recent years such as: Day Watch, Night Watch, Paragraph 78, The Inhabited Island and others.
This is not a movie to watch with your kids as there is plenty of violence and blood, but violence ads a more real feel to the movie and is not just violence for the sake of the violence.
If you like action and sci-fi movies this movie will not disappoint you.
