it was kind of funny but as a gamer i can't help but feel that that guy should have been killed about 50 times over. the only reason he wasn't was because the enemy AI was soo terrible.

lol, AI is not at its best, I'll give you that :P
There's a good part of comedy in this so the "dumb" badies are ok I guess...

The premise is simply shite.

The idea of a 1st person movie is great and some day, there will be a movie that a lot of people will flock to, not just gamers. This is not that movie.

Something along the lines of Strange Days and Total Recall would make for a great 1st person movie. Or even something cliched and cheesy like Art of Valour.



That's God Awful and the male actor (can't remember his name) should just stick with the South African accent he was brought up with.

This is clearly a movie made by gamers for gamers, not a serious action movie. Low budget & all, yet I find the idea great & form a technical p.o.v. it's really well done, all the scene was done in 1 sequence shot which is remarkable!

Sharlto Copley is hte name, really God Awful??? That's harsh...

Maybe I've been playing too much BF3 lately, I found it funny, well shot/paced! Keep in mind that this a very low budget movie, Sarlto Copley is probably doing this pro bono.

Nope, God Awful it is. The perspective absolutely ruins anything going on and reduces it to the shallowness of online play in COD, and his British accent is laughable.

The whole movie is shot from this perspective, that is the point.

I'm confused. The whole movie is shot with that perspective ... That's why it's God Awful.
