A rare movie which is exactly what it aspires to be
25 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

VGHS is a love letter to video games and those who love them.

The basic construction is reminiscent of paint by numbers. All the necessary plot points are there and more or less exactly where they need to be, enough so anyway that the story is complete if simple. You won't find much by way of nuance or depth, but that's okay, the movie is fun.

It's clear everyone involved in the project earnestly loved what they were doing. There's an honest innocence to it. This is a film for 11-15 year-olds and there's nothing wrong with that.

If you can accept what it is, you'll find it's a nice little gem.
