Shopkeeper: [after receiving the trophy in the training arena] If there's anything you ever need, you can expect my prices to be more than reasonable.
Lin-Ku: Hmm...
[nods to Sam and Zack and then swings his axe at the Shopkeeper]
Lin-Ku: HYAH!
Shopkeeper: [just axed in the skull] AGGH! OW! WHAT DID YOU DO!
Sam: [angrily] What the hell did you do THAT for?
Lin-Ku: I wanted to see if my weapon could hurt him!

Worth your time
11 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

As someone who started off doing reviews on Newgrounds (I have literally "thousands" there), I knew I had to watch the film that launched this long running series. Well, maybe the cartoons came first. I guess it's weird to think of a cartoon adaptation and a live-action version that are both good. It was probably the best animated adaptation. Anyway, this is a good movie. I guess I could compare it to "Spaceballs" in that it features an eccentric villain with funnier scenes than the heroes in a parody movie. Hey, we have another good spoof movie here!

I would have liked this more if the lighting effects were better. It does come off as choppy at times. The good still definitely outweighs the bad in this one. Yeah, have you ever heard of a popular thing on the Internet that WASN'T in some way related to Channel Awesome? I might see the sequel some day, as it seems even better. I just love Count Vile who makes the best character. I thought that he was just going to be this really incompetent villain but he actually was shown to be pretty powerful at the end. Unpredictability is good anywhere. There's too many good lines to remember, like when Zack asks why they have turns. The warp zone stuff was great too. ***
