As a videogame fan I went to see this movie with no expectations at all, as videogames are usually portrayed abysmally in movies(see: Virtual Sexuality for instance). The one thing this movie does get right though is videogames. Game aficionados will notice various more or less correct videogame references and cameos; everything from Game and Watch to Zelda 64, and even a GameCube controller. Apart from the games themselves though, this movie is a mess. A fractured, confused narrative coupled with dysfunctional, unlikable(and bigoted) characters, sprinkled very lightly with funny, individual scenes.
