A location named Sadonion in the film is named after an info-graphic that appears frequently on products reviewed by Ashens on his youtube channel that he's dubbed the "sad onion" due to its resemblance to an onion with a sad face on it. See more »


One scene in the movie is supposed to be set in 1991. However, all the vehicles seen in the background were all produced after 1991. See more »

An "Excellent" movie, one of the best indies out there.
8 August 2013 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

If you don't know who Stuart Ashen is, he is a YouTube celebrity from the United Kingdom that often reviews cheap "knock-off" electronics, toys, and other such things. Ashens and the Quest for the GameChild, so far as I know, is his first feature length movie, which he not only starred in, but also co-wrote, and the talent shows. The film is an extremely fun and funny ride, from start to finish. Every joke is well thought out and written, and even ones I could not get (which were honestly very few) I could laugh at. In a nutshell, the movie follows Stuart Ashen and his friend Geoff Excellence as they set out on a "quest" for the GameChild, an extremely rare rip-off of the original Nintendo GameBoy, and hilarity ensues. The movie is full of clever twists and turns, though I won't spoil it for anyone.

While not many may recognize all of the actors and such working on the film, all of them are extremely talented and did really well in the film. The camera work is superb, the music is great and the set pieces are very memorable. And again, the jokes are extremely funny. Every character is extremely likable, even the villains. In fact, every character seems to have their own unique personality, charm and stand out from the background crowd, which in today's state of films, is a rarity.

All in all, this was a very good indie film that many, MANY audiences could enjoy. It shows off a lot of the British reviewer's talent, as well as just being a very clever, fun and hilarious comedy. I would give it a 9.5 out of 10, missing the extra .5 because of a SLIGHTLY rushed ending, but it's still enjoyable.
