Decent, but didn't deliver on the initial concept (First section contains spoilers)
13 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a LARPing and D&D nerd, so when I heard they were making a movie about LARPing becoming real I was psyched and hoped that I would see a bunch of geeks using their pointlessly learned skills to save humanity. That's not what this movie is. This movie is a blood bath of nameless red-shirts and named, involved characters getting slaughtered as they cower in fear until the very end where a strange, out of nowhere solution is used. The movie is relatively short and lacks much if any character development. I only watched it because I like Peter Dinklage, Danny Pudi, and Jimmi Simpson. All three characters were killed off, Danny's before I even got to know the character. I figured I could at least appreciate the LARP aspect of it, but instead I got a few shots of LARPing and a whole lot of "Oh crap guys we're going to die run for your life!". I expected to get at least some humor out of the movie, but only heard two jokes throughout and one was rather obvious and lacked wit.

>>Here down does not contain spoilers

All in all I feel as through the movie could have been more interesting and not a near endless stream of the deaths of characters I care nothing about because of their homogeneity.
