Virtually Heroes is a smart, funny movie that will surprise you with its clever blend of comedy, action, and film making tricks. Director GJ Echternkamp raided legendary producer Roger Corman's vault of stock footage and spliced it with newly shot material to hilarious effect in this campy, fun film about "Call of Duty"-style video game characters in existential crisis. The story is punctuated by several laugh out loud moments as well as some very effective effects sequences. The cast is also well assembled. Lead actor Robert Baker (Grey's Anatomy, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) shines as the moody, reluctant "hero" Books, and Brent Chase nails it as the gung-ho, violence-loving sidekick Nova. Other notable performances include Ben Messmer as the hilariously twisted villain Merk, and an entertaining cameo by the one and only Mark Hamill. Video game fans will enjoy the film's many knowing nods to the pastime, but non-gamers need not worry as it never strays too far into geek territory.

Virtually Heroes is a real gem of a movie and an instant cult classic in my book. Recommended!
