By 10 years old Frankie 13 had it all. He was the youngest child to ever read and write in the state of Pennsylvania. He received awards for poems and speeches that he wrote starting at the age of 6. But life hasn't turned out like he expected. Now 26, he still lives with his mother and is following his father's career path. His true love, though, is Rock Paper Scissors. And his dedication to the game may be the one thing he needs to be a success again, the World Rock Paper Scissors Champion. Written by James Eowan

Boy genius who's lost his way tries to capture some glory be participating in the World Rock, Papaer, Scissors Championships.
14 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Edited and shot well. Moves really fast. The film follows Rock, Paper, Scissors competitor Andre Bennet (AKA Frankie 13) as he makes his way through the competitive RPS circuit. Short of a "Rocky" tale without the payoff in the end. More a film on Andre's life than a story covering the world of RPS. Andre's a unique subject to do a doc on. I guess the filmmakers chose to focus on him because he's an RPS purist. A lot of funny scenes but the thru line is what keeps the story moving. At times kind of sad, but it's very honest. Very objective for a documentary. Good ending, but don't expect a grand exit like "King of Kong".
