Storyline

Ashens' insane fictional search for a piece of fabled electronic tat: the Game Child. Accompanied by fan-favourite Chef Excellence (a human version, not the bloody puppet), together they try to overcome the odds - and all common sense - to lay their hands on the legendary Game Child, an old knock-off handheld video game console. But a shadowy figure, aided by Ashens' irritating nemesis, wants the game for their own dastardly ends. Written by Anonymous

An "Excellent" movie, one of the best indies out there.
8 August 2013 | by moonswirlySee 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.
