The Controller Movie Review

Movie Review of The Controller

This is not one of your typical movie content reviews since The Controller is not a widely known movie. Sometimes these movies have a great script that surprise you and leave you wondering why it’s not more popular. The movie content review for this movie may actually be better than the movie itself. For me, The Controller was not one of the best movies to watch.

William is a computer magnate billionaire who finds that his wife has been kidnapped during the night. A note was left from the kidnapper guiding him to a location where he receives a call from the kidnappers. During the call they inform William that his wife will be held kidnapped until he plays an online game that he created called Liberation Force Earth and beats. He suggests hiring a team of gamers in order to win his wife back.

The police start recruiting a team of gamers in order to win this online game. A team of five people were assembled including the wife’s husband William. They work together continuously to find a solution to beating the game so he can win his wife back. William unfortunately cannot inform the other gamers as to the kidnapping of his wife or she will be terminated.

The battles intensify with each minute that passes, having to fight a variety of military forces that stand in their way. Two of the gamers actually end up virtually dying during the game which brings the team closer together in order to achieve there goals. One of the main goals is to take over a well occupied military base that takes teamwork and dedication to defeat. The battle ends with an intriguing and interesting twist that will leave the movie watchers in awe.

I thought the movie was a dull script that lacked a captivating story-line to keep me interested in watching it. The controller does have its funny moments that will give you a chuckle. This movie is great for families and kids to watch for all of its family moments and PG rating. I thought the acting was more like a play instead of a typical movie with a director that had cuts and takes. The ending was very surprising, which I enjoyed, but it still does not make up for all of the dull moments. I was left saying what movie is this?

Only 8 Hours to Win The Game

With only 8 hours to win the game, will the online gamers be able to work as a virtual team to free William's Wife.
