Knights of Badassdom! A Soon-To-Be Cult Classic or Fail?
What happens when the world of LARP Crosses Over From Fantasy to Reality? Step In To Find Out!
I hadn't even heard of this film to be released on January 21, 2014 until today. So, they don't have much for marketing, but that doesn't necessarily mean this independent film won't deliver on its effort to entertain a niche market of role-playing geeks and those that enjoy some good ol' fun... reminiscent of Army of Darkness and Shaun of the Dead horror style comedy. Yes, Summer Glau is doing her "thing" and for some, that is a good thing and for some that is a redundant thing. Depending on your taste, she isn't too hard on the eyes.
Call it brilliant or so bad that it could be good, but what say thee? A watch or pass?
From the Official Movie Site:
KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM follows three best friends (Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn and Ryan Kwanten) and dedicated LARPers (Live Action Role Players) as they take to the woods to reenact a dungeons and dragons-like scenario fresh out of the mythical Middle Ages. Trouble arises after they unwittingly conjure up some serious evil in the form of a blood-lusting Succubus, from the pits of hell.
Fantasy and reality collide on the Fields of Evermore in an all-out epic battle of make-believe wizards, demons and assorted mythical creatures. Their courage and friendship is put to the test as they attempt to vanquish the evil they have summoned. Will the group prove to simply be foam sword-wielding LARPers, or true “Knights of Badassdom?”
