This is a marvelous parody of video-games and the conventions of such. It is mainly geared towards those of us who remember the classic and original ones(without feeling like you're watching one of those), but since so many of these things are still true of recent releases, and with how varied the material is, including cleverness, quirk, silliness, verbal stuff, raunchiness(relatively mild) and *countless* of references(and no rip-offs, this is seldom entirely specific), there should be something for younger players, as well. If you've never picked up a controller, this was not made with you in mind. This is hilarious, nearly every single joke and gag works. Zack Nimbus wakes up one morning, and things feel... well, different. Soon, he is approached by members of a resistance, who tell him that he is the last hope. The plot is great, and moves along nicely. This has a solid pace, and is not boring at any point. The acting is good, and no performances are downright bad. Everyone is right for their role(there are even cool guest stars), and most come off as natural. The leads all have martial arts experience, and that's why the several fight scenes are as excellent as they are(the action is all well-done, and very exciting). The characters are well-written, credible and develop well in this. There are numerous locations, and they all feel realistic. In general, this doesn't look cheap at any time. The effects are marvelous. This is well-shot, and the editing is sharp. You can't particularly tell that this literally had no budget, and was carried by enthusiasm and talent(you know, the things that *should* go into any production). The music is spot-on, and immensely well-composed. This has the exact right tone, not too goofy, and not everything is played for laughs. There is a little bit of moderate and/or suggestive language in this. The DVD is rather expertly done, with three(!) informative and funny commentary tracks(crew, cast and composer), a 24 minute making of featurette which is put together really well, two types of shorts(including some not on his site), trailer, and a phony doll commercial. I recommend this(and the PSA's... and anything else by Ed Glaser, his sense of humor rocks) to any fan of VG's, old or new. Entertaining, engaging and awesome. 8/10
