Shallow
20 October 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This documentary wants to shine a light on the, for most people unknown, pro gaming society. Those exceptionally talented teenagers struggle to get acceptance by their parents and are struggling to give up their education to go pro.

I am a bit of a gamer myself. I like to play from time to time. So I'm always interested in documentaries about pro gaming. I know it is damn hard, and that you'll have to be amazingly good at it to become a pro. This documentary disappointed me. It doesn't go deep. It's pretty all round and doesn't focus on a subject. Like the documentary "The King of Kong" for example focused only on two players fighting each other for the world record. Gaming is pretty big. Lots of different things you can focus on. They start general then narrow it down to professional gaming. But they fail to get specific. If they only had focused on a couple of gamers and tell more about their struggle it would be way more interesting and telling a lot more about pro gaming.

Maybe I am prejudiced, but they failed to deliver.
