Worth Watching
19 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

This movie is intended for a male audience, preferably between the ages of 14-30. The humor isn't great, but definitely funny if you like "immature" humor. The only female character is played by Felicia Day (Alison), who does have a minor impact on the story, but is not properly utilized intellectually, as is the case in many Sci-Fi, Comedy movies.

Gerry Bednob, Andrew Bowen, Justin Chon and Kevin Wu help to develop the distinct characters needed for a misfit group. The acting itself is good, but hilarious writing helps to fuel this movie.

While the premise of impending doom, small group having to save the planet, "The Man" always trying to make the job harder, and the deadbeat dad role are not original, they are developed and help to conduct the story in an interesting way.

Doug Jones as Smoking Jesus, with continual exclamations of "Jesus" is definitely an upside, as well as quoting numerous movies throughout the movie.

Hopefully a deeper look at the characters and speeches throughout the movie will prompt similar movies, because there are pretty well thought out speeches made by the characters in the film.

The story itself is interesting to follow, peppered in with character conflicts that makes this an interesting movie, well worth a 85-91 minute viewing. Many people will not relate to it, and that's more than fair, but if you enjoy simplistic humor, good/great acting as well as some quality background imagery (scenes with Smoking Jesus), this might be worth a look.

Without spoiling the movie, it is hard to develop a full review, but a fair rating for this movie is 6/10, with a wide range of ratings expected between 1-10 because there will be people to whom this movie does not appeal at all, or to the target audience which it might. There are a few editing issues (talking without mouth moving) but overall the movie seems to be pretty well done.
