(USA, 2009, 93 minutes)

In the near future, a video game mogul introduces a violent combat game where the players actually direct real-life, flesh and blood people picked from death row; but the star warrior is there for a different reason. Disturbing, none-more-bleak satire disguised as ultra-violent, voyeuristic frenzied action movie, wanting to have its cake and eat it too – and actually succeeding up to a point. Not for the weak or faint of heart.
