in the future, Castle came out with mind controlling multi player online games, which he named Society n Slayers. while Society was opened to public, convicts had chip implanted in their head, forced onto the battle field in Slayers, controlled by a player. convict Kable was controlled by Simon, a teenage gamer. he must survived 30 rounds of games in order to be free. when castle overstepped the boundary of creating an impossible character who require no player, Kable knew he won't survive his 30th round. coming to an agreement with his player, Kable was granted the freedom to seek Castle out.
at first glance, the concept of the film seemed relatively simple n straightforward, which was having the player controlling actual people. expecting an average action film, we were surprised to find it so complicated n impressive! the film brought alive gamers' experience, especially when first-person shooters game became real life n Sims-like Society was so believing. however, the varieties of players controlling the character reminded one of how different they can be, n how disturbing as well.
