Could have been a really good movie, but sadly ... NOT!

At first glance at the synopsis, this movie had a pretty good premise/plot. Unfortunately it doesn't follow through with the promise of being an exciting action adventure Science Fiction. Poor writing, poor acting, poor directing coupled with a low budget and you have yourself a boring movie. It took every bit of mental strength that I had to finish watching it so that I could write this review. I wouldn't feel right writing a negative review if I didn't finish the movie. Also I was waiting for something that would change my mind. Maybe a fantastic twist at the end or maybe it would get even a little bit better...but no....sadly not. I cannot recommend this movie. I am a Sci-Fi geek and love the VR world concept and gaming, but even I couldn't find find any good in this flick. I just kept on thinking how the makers of this movie would recover the monies that they invested in this flop.

Not bad at all...See for yourself

I'm a little stunned at some of the bad reviews this movies has had. It isn't that bad at all. It has it's typical character types for a movie of this type to give the story a bit of 'zap' and these characters emerge immediately. It's well done for a low budget movie, with good acting and directing ideas, and for once, I didn't pre-empt what the ending would be like. I was a little surprised, which doesn't happen often, yet viewers will determine the way the movie will go, as that is what it is..a game. I can tell you, there are some shocking movies out there that have ratings too high, with acting so laughable and the directing a nightmare to watch, yet this movie holds it own, actors and direction. See for yourself.

Good ol' unpretentious fun

I saw the film at a sci-fi festival and found the premise absolutely engaging. Without giving away too much of the story, this is one of those movies that grabs something familiar from the contemporary world and takes it to the extreme, with fascinating consequences. Mixing VR and reality is the holy grail of gamers, but the sort of scenario described here is chilling, to say the least. Funnily, the writer-director takes every trope of the first-person shooter and turns it into a clever detail. And that's where most of the fun comes from. The characters conveniently follow the group casting of any slasher, with all the classic types and a couple of surprises. Maybe I would have wished these characters to be a bit more explored and a little less action scenes, but you can't fault this film for doing what most FPS do! Good fun
