Ken Hoang: I couldn't read him. I mean he was an open book, but it doesn't mean you can read a book if every single time you turn a page you get a paper cut.

One of the most deep and emotional documentaries out there.
22 March 2017 | by derekbellasSee all my reviews

The Smash Brothers is easily the best documentary I've seen in the last 10 years. Not only does it tell the long history of one of the most competitively played games of all time, but also the emotional tension that comes from being a professional. Strangely enough, it reminded me a lot of the anime Dragon Ball Z in the sense that more and more powerful foes showed up throughout the series, much like how players only get better and better. The documentary covers the character arcs of many (and I really mean many) players, and really shows how people so different can come together just to fight and have a good time.
