There's something really amazing about watching a movie like this come out of a place like Texas North - it works, just like SLC Punk worked.
This movie is a funny, slightly uncomfortable look at the weekend warriors that hide their secret magical identities under a business suit five days a week. You may find that the LARPing rules used in the movie aren't accurate to your own experiences, but in making their own rules, they avoid poking fun at specific groups and make their own game truly unique. Frankly, I find their game rules much more fun. Don't let your inner pedant ruin the experience of this movie for you - just take it as a love song to the bizarre realm of LARPing.
If you've ever spent your weekend in the basement when you should have been outside, or been mocked by your friends for reading Dragonlance well into your late teens, you will relate. If you're a geek - any geek - give this film a watch. The humour is so honest and so down-to-earth that it's really enjoyable for anybody who loves a little fake magic in their lives.
