Three of the actors in the movie have played a character named Rico in the past, and their characters in this movie are tied together: Casper Van Dien - Johnny Rico in Starship Troopers. Moises Arias - Rico Suave in Hannah Montana. John Gries - Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite. See more »
(at around 50 mins) Andy (Jason Mewes) is sitting in the car with Cody. The front on shot shows Andy with his seat belt off, but on the side shot, he has it on, then off again on the front shot. See more »
Noobz doesn't try to be something it's not. Saw the film during the E3 convention in Los Angeles. Looking at the budget listed here, it is obviously an independent film. I can respect the scope of the world they achieved at any level outside of a studio.
Noobz does a good job capturing the gaming culture, without the usual "nerd trying to get laid" stereotypes. Identifiable characters along with above average acting, sets this film apart from its predecessors.
For what it is, not an art film nor an Oscar pitch, it's the best video game movie made so far.
My score is based on the fact that it is a gaming comedy and not a comparable film to ARGO.
