I wanted to like this

Seeing the cover and subject, I though I'd be in for a nice little indie treat with 80s nostalgia and some laughs. However, this didn't have much of either (a little bit of nostalgia, zero laughs). Normally I wouldn't have cared enough to write a review about this, but because of all the other reviews giving it great scores I felt I had to give another perspective so people wouldn't get their hopes up.

I've never seen the YouTube series so I didn't know what to expect, but this film wasn't entertaining at all. I seemed like it was trying to be funny, but I couldn't really tell. I guess that's how bad the humour was, since it didn't even really register as humour. I don't remember laughing once. The story wasn't that great either. It was just things happening to move the plot along, but failed at doing it in an interesting way.

In the end I could only get through about half of the film before I had to stop due to lack of any entertainment whatsoever. I'm baffled at why there are so many good reviews. Perhaps friends of the crew? If not, then I'm happy they could find some entertainment in this since I certainly couldn't.

Don't say you weren't warned. I've seen good indie. This isn't it.

More than just fan service?

I am aware that this is essentially 80+ minutes of free content on Youtube. I still look at it as a feature length movie like the ones you go to the movie theatres to watch. Why not, right? Although it took them 3 weeks to film, it was still shot like a typical indie film.

Anyway, on with the review. As a moderate fan of Ashens' Youtube channel, I felt letdown by the end of this movie. The actual plot is ridiculous but they did manage to make it seem less cheesy than it actually is. However, the script was pretty terrible. I believe Ashens co-wrote it which makes me sad because I thought he would be a better script writer.

Visually, this movie was interesting even though there wasn't any noticeable CGI/special effects aside from one particular scene which I won't spoil. The animated intro was honestly probably the best part. If you don't want to watch the whole movie, at least just watch the animation bit.

Chris Kendall, Dan Tomlinson, and Ashens all did an excellent job in their roles. The rest of the cast was decent at best. I thought Warwick Davis would have had a much larger role.

If you're a fan of Ashens, you'll probably like this movie if only for the references. If you've never heard of the guy, don't bother. This is mostly fan service. (Which is fine. I enjoyed Game Child for what it was.)

One of the best low budget films even for non ashen fans

This really is a great movie. With a true plot and story and even without the high cost Hollywood production it still is filmed with good acting and story. A lot of passion and care was put into this film. Even if you were not a fan of Ashens famous pop station reviews you may still like this film. The film mixes real life film with little extra clay animation for a little better effect. The two main actors Ashens and chef excellence(Jeff) really do provide good acting that would not expect from a lower budget film as well as the background actors and the stage sets. Great concept/story of him going after a game boy clone the story is clear and easy to follow.
