Perhaps a sucker for anything I watched this because it has an
interesting title. I expected something pretty bad, but for an
independent movie I've seen a lot worse. As it was written, directed,
and filmed by one man, it's actually fairly impressive. There are
scenes I think I'll always remember like the morgue, which was equally
shocking and hilarious. It's definitely not for children, but may
really find an audience among fps gamers as it has some great live
action scenes where you think you're playing in god mode in one of
Initially I had thought that the plot would go that way, that they were all in a game world and where actually just elements of a game trying to figure out how to stop a player using god mode, but they decided to go the t3 route.

This is the greatest movie ever made. Hot babe, great songs that with
2 or 3 exceptions have completely stood the test of time, and a story
following ones dreams. Nothing better has ever been made, certainly not
within the musical genre. You can take your matrix's and Gone with the
