‘The Ugly Truth’ star Gerard Butler returns to the action fold as Kable, the unwilling anti-hero of the violent near-future gaming phenomenon Slayers – an online game that allows players to control death row prisoners. Created by gazillionaire mogul Ken Castle (Michael C Hall) – who at one point demonstrates his puppet-master fortitude by performing a Bob Fosse-esque rendition of ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ – this humans-in-harm’s-way competition is really a smoke screen for…world domination!

Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (‘Crank’) direct with their usual flashy brio, and basso profundo Keith David has a sublime cameo as a cop indignant at the thought of a pistachio butter sandwich. Yes, it’s that kind of movie, folks.
