Kable is controlled by Simon, a young gamer with rock star status who continues to defy all odds by guiding Kable to victory each week.

Yep, I like the look of this one too. Big budget equals lots of explosions. I am surprised you did not go ape-%&^$ when I posted the "Humpty Dumpty," article from the director of "Snakes on a Plane!" Haha.
