Who is the Best? Hard to say!, 2 May 2013
Author: Atomic_Peace from United States

I go way back watching these two actors, it's really hard to say who is funnier, Trainer comes off as more energetic, as McCurdy stands to be a more psychically, and more wittier!

The story is actually pretty relatable, a guy in his 20's on a video gaming universe is beat by a kid half his age, admit it, we've all been there! As a huge tournament begins to emerge for the game, they both plan to sabotage each other's status, at any means necessary.

I enjoyed the flick, I'm a big video game nerd, and I feel them! It's a fun time! Even if you're not even really a huge game nerd, you can laugh at it!
