boring
22 April 2003 | by (stockholm, sweden) – See all my reviews

This movie got some of swedens not top of the line actors but quite famous ones, who been in several movies and tv sopas etc. the acting it self isnt that bad, the idea to the story could have worked fine but the movie itself is just neurotic and anoying it would have worked better as a 30 min cut down tv version. the video game references are few, eventhough there are some cool posters of nintendo 64 controllers ala warhol style on one wall. anyhow the story would worked better if the first thing showed was that he lost his hand would have worked better if they just cut out the beginning hospital scenes or something.. what ever. not worth buying, not worth renting. maybe just watch it on telly, but don't expect a movie with a lot of video games, there are more jewish easter celebration then video games(the main character is a Jew trying to deal with that the nintendo worldchampionship is colliding with a jewish holiday so he is trying to go to the easter supper and then in time catch a taxi to the air port to be able to go from sweden to america where the championship takes place....)
