Gave this one a Watch a while back
12 August 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The film is self-aware which is fine, but it's one of the more poorly blocked/shot films I've seen in awhile. Wherever the camera should not be to get the maximum impact of a shot, count on it being there. =(

Also, anytime the protagonists are sharing a scene together, count on dead air and a complete lack of energy on screen. The movie also uses stock footage for a lot of its action sequences, while still shooting its actors on today's more modern digital cameras. This creates a visual disparage in quality that reminds constantly takes you in and out of any kind of world the film was trying to build. It's an interesting concept, but the editing, shot design, and cinematography all feel like they were grasping at straws to make this production work.

Kudos to the team for getting it in the can, but I would definitely not recommend this to anyone who likes video games. It may insult them. =/
