A great video game parody movie
6 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you enjoy the Press Start animated series, you'll really enjoy this movie. It's basically a live-action version of all Nintendo games combined. It is a little slow compared to their animations, but it still brings out a good laugh count, with a few laugh-out-louds too.

Press Start definitely better than the average fan-made film. There's a large variety of locations, and each one seems to fit the scene very well. There's no backyard filming here; the scenes range from jungles to caves to underground facilities. The acting of the main characters was better than expected (although nothing special), and the older characters did an excellent job. Actors from the original Mortal Combat game make an appearance as well. The special effects were great for the budget, and for a no-budget film, the number of props was huge.

I'd definitely suggest Press Start to any fan of the series and anyone wanting to see a good video game parody.
