Starts off very strong, but loses some grip towards the end
13 August 2013 | by (Laputa) – See all my reviews

I've had the pleasure to see this movie in a semi-private screening with the crew present. Part of the high rating (by my standards) is the fact that the flick's as self-made as self-made gets, being produced and acted by basically the same guys (which is something I often dig).

The movie throws the viewer directly into its documentary-styled collage of at first glance seemingly random scenes featuring two best friends during their high school time. The first half hour develops a pull that draws you right in. While "Two best friends are filming a comedy about getting revenge on the bullies at their high school. One of them isn't joking." is probably as concise as it gets to describe the plot, it also means that a somewhat experienced audience might feel a bit underwhelmed, since what started off fresh will become rather foreseeable and and clichéd in the second half. I was relieved that the ending's at least consequent, finishing the movie in a satisfying way nonetheless.

I like the concept of the movie and mostly like the execution, and I like being able to say that it's a film worthy of watching with high schoolers, since it provides a lot of stuff to discuss about things that are important to know and realize for each and everyone out there.
