It's a drag
5 August 2012 | by eric-1268See all my reviews

This movie is a drag. The only good thing in this movie is the camera work. The story revolves around a pro-gamer without a social life trying to connect with a foreign woman. The dialog is shitty, the 'Second Life' scenes are terribly boring and the ending will leave you flabbergasted and wondering why you've just spend 1,5 hours watching this. Only in case you are addicted to playing Second Life, there might be a very very small chance you find this movie enjoyable, but I seriously doubt that.

In short: if you haven't seen this movie yet; save yourself and go watch a decent flick instead!
