Editorial Reviews

A group of costumed "Live Action Role Players," dressed as knights, elves and other medieval characters, take to the woods for "The Battle of Evermore." But when a make-believe wizard casts a spell from an ancient book, purchased on eBay, fantasy becomes reality as a powerful demon manifests itself. Can these pretend warriors muster the courage to save themselves and the rest of humanity?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie February 5, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Knights of badassdom - Me and 132 of my friends where able to get Tugg.com to bring the movie to Phoenix, Arizona February 4th at the AMC desertridge. About 30 of us showed up in costume (garb) to watch this before it was released. I will give a spoiler free review:

Basic Plot: LARPer's (Live Action Role Playing) conjure up a demon from Hell played by Margarita Levieva during a weekend get together for the LARP group. Eric (Steve Zahn) and Hung (Peter Dinklage) are trying to cheer up their friend, room-mate and former D&D player Joe (Ryan Kwanten) who has just broken up with his girlfriend Beth.

The movie pokes fun at anyone who has ever done D&D, LARP, SCA, etc but coming from a person who does this for fun I can tell you it was a great fun movie.

There is Mild (think Evil Dead) gore in a few scenes, Drug use (Pot and Mushrooms), brief implied nudity (sideboob), mild violence and language. If you liked roll models and the evil dead, have ever LARPed or had a friend who did and wanted you to join them for a weekend of "fun" this movie was made for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I expected February 17, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is one of those movies that is "so bad it's good" and that made it awesome! Also digging the soundtrack.

Update: Watched a second time -
So I was thinking about this and wondering if my review was skewed because of a couple things. First, I was a little drunk. Not falling down drunk, but I would not be able to drive a car. Second, I watched this with a group of friends. These two combined made me wonder if the booze and my friends laughing made me laugh more. Well, in an effort to be thorough, I watched it again last night. Just me, winding down after work, stone sober. And you know what, still funny!

I fully admit that there are numerous random plots points that were not explained that might have made the movie flow better. But that could have also led to the movie being too long and slowing down too much. But here is what made the movie awesome, to me:
1. Danni Pudi - Since I really like the show Community, this was a instant win.
2. Summer Glau - what can I say, she has such a sexy "nerd girl" look and when she smirks = awesome.
3. Peter Dinklage - I liked the Station Agent, but really I think GOT has made him that much more awesome. He puts the Imp in Pimp and is still awesome and funny in this movie! And without being too "spoilery", his final battle scene was just epic!
4. The music - Really the soundtrack overall is ok, but what sold the movie was the "final battle scene" and how the song plays into it. Just trust me, it makes no sense at all, but it is awesome nonetheless!
5. The other actors all did well, but the 3 I called out really made the movie. The Stackhouse guy from True Blood and Steve Zahn were funny/cool as well, but the first 3 sold it for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wait is Over February 11, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Awesome, diverse, and talented cast of men and women. It is good to see some great nerdy movies. Peter, Ryan, and Steve must have been friends before this movie because their buddy relationshiP emulates throughout. I have been waiting for this movie to come out for over a year, and it did not disappoint.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything I wanted. March 10, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If you have used a foam sword to vanquish enemies...this is the movie for you. If you made fun of the "nerds" playing D+D growing up....please go watch Gravity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nerd Awesomeness June 6, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
So first of all, you really do need to have at least a vague concept of LARP, DnD, or some sort of nerd culture. If you dont you likely wont understand why this movie is SO EPIC and go 'ok, basic plot and kinda silly'. If you do...fellow nerds...this movie is FANTASTIC. Seriously, it pokes fun at our love in amusing ways, has Peter Dinklage being a total badass and is just pure an awesome silliness, reminding you of 'oh man I hate when guys rule lawyer too!' or 'damn vampire LARPers!' WATCH IT. Nerdy film made by nerds for nerds.

5.0 out of 5 stars About time they released it! May 30, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just because they had to edit it a bit doesn't interfere with the fun of seeing these guys kick demon butt. It would be great if we could get the original uncut version, but until then, this will do just fine.

This movie is one of those ones that you're just not supposed to take too seriously, but as long as you view it in the spirit in which it was intended, then it's a must for any geek, LARPer or gamer who grew up playing D&D. The subject matter and many references are definitely not for kids (or at least not ones who are as young on the outside as they are on the inside), but the plot is hilarious and Summer Glau and Peter Dinklage are both awesome in their roles. Oh, and the music is pretty cool too-- heavy metal that took me back to the days of my head-banging, D&D-playing youth. I saw it in the theater and could not wait to get my hands on a copy. I'd recommend you do the same.
