When the Nostalgia Critic can't stop blaming himself for the loss of Ma-Ti, a weird string of events begins to unfold that could shake the very fabric of internet reviewing as we know it. The evil Psychlo, Terl, under orders from a mysterious bureaucrat, is out for revenge against the Critic and convinces the government to arrest him, while Mechakara is reprogrammed to incapacitate Linkara and take his place. Meanwhile, Paw and his friends discover some weird signals emitting from space and Spoony seems to be the key to it all. Finally, they discover that this force is Ma-Ti, whose spirits inhabits The Plot Hole, in which no life can be sustained...without horrific mishaps.

"That was lame... it's OK, we'll edit it out and add it to the special edition"
17 September 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

A strange anomaly in our solar system causes some freaky things to happen to the TGWTG(if you don't know what that stands for, I'm sorry to say, this was simply not made for you, it's strictly for the fans) crew... and could it really be connected to Ma-Ti? They soon travel towards it, while a few old enemies resurface. What will they find? And will they ever return? This embraces the decision made that it will be the last anniversary film, opting for making permanent choices, providing genuine closure to extensive things(including the famous love triangle), and being one epic behemoth(seriously, this thing is 205 minutes long! That's LOTR running time right there... I definitely recommend watching it in parts, the way it was released to the internet... sitting through it all, with its brisk pace(albeit starting off slowly, it soon abandons that, occasionally returning to it here and there... and you may miss lines or bits the first time through) might overstimulate you), with a really cool set-up and a truly awesome climax. This is also the funniest and in general best so far. The decision to go for space-based(and they walk the difficult line of making it grand and yet making sure we can relate to it) sci-fi(and of course they parody and reference every large-scale venture in that genre in the last four decades, everything from classics like SW and ST to The Matrix(and stuff from their own reviews, or the subjects thereof, at least) and video games), the controlled conditions(they're in their own houses(with greenscreens, and many great sets), not roaming a forest or in someone else's place) allow them to do more with lighting(as well as go for more interesting angles and the like... by far the most visually compelling of these), and they take advantage of that to great effect. Additionally, it's the cleverest of these, going into the fundamental structure of storytelling and commenting on it. We have multiple plot lines and arcs, with everyone having some running gag and/or something to do in the narrative, in some form or fashion. CR, SadPanda and LAG(well, bigger role, anyway... as Obi-Wan, somewhat) are in this, at the expense of ones who have gotten screen time in the earlier ones(they get cameo appearances). NC himself is personally called on(can he grow past being a jerk?). Phelous is determined to prove that a Red Shirt *can* do something(other than get killed off). This has some really spot-on casting. The material is varied(a lot of silliness, some wordplay, tons of random ones, etc.) , and the vast majority of jokes work. Editing is great as usual. The make-up is outstanding. CGI and FX are incredible. Action is fast, humorous and well-choreographed, with chases and shootouts. There is proper tension in this. The performances are about the usual... numerous amazing ones, some ham, and at times it's awkward(psst: these people are not classically trained Shakespearean theatre actors). All the music making up the original score of this is really good, fitting the grand scope. There is some violent or disturbing content and a little mild to moderate language in this. I recommend this to every single person who enjoys the work of these fine critics. 10/10
