Omg lol best movie ever.
Szabolcs Molnar
I expected I of all people would appreciate this movie, but I am sad to say I wasted almost two hours and four bucks on this lame attempt at a decent idea.
J. Clyde
It's got a good story line and great characters.

I saw this film before it was released in theaters and I've made plans to purchase it since I saw it all those months ago.

Unicorn City is a film for gamers and non-gamers alike. Those who are into the gamer culture will find humor in the extremities that Unicorn City goes to, because we all secretly want to say "Magic Missle!" and see it blow up a monster. Those who aren't into the gamer culture will be easily introduced into the quirks of the trade. The character's are amusing and outrageous enough that anyone would be able to relate to them.

This movie portrays people who want to live a dream, and all the people who think they're weird for doing so.

You are who you pretend to be indeed!

This is a fun movie that will make you laugh--a lot. The story follows Voss, a gamer much like the one you might see at your local comic book shop. In order to impress a potential employer, Voss decides to create a gaming utopia for live-action role-players. These L.A.R.P.ers, as they are termed, create their own suits of armor and personality traits and "live" as their character for the duration of the game. Voss enlists the help of Marsha, a fellow gamer who is in love with him (Voss is in turn clueless to Marsha' affection). Chaos ensues when a rival attempts to take control of Unicorn City.

While the movie revolves heavily around gaming culture, you don't need to know too much to enjoy the movie. The movie has a particular charm, and there a lot of very funny moments (these will make sense after you've seen the film): the online break-up, "breakfast chicken," finding the sword, the centaur (several times...he tends to steal each scene he's in), Voss' dream, and others. Watch it with a group of friends and enjoy.

From the very likable lead characters, who despite their lack of fame, are perfectly cast into the amazing cinematography where never is there any hint of useless filler, poor lighting, or the absolute worse, ghastly musical choices. BTW, this under budgeted production's soundtrack is both amazingly succinct and impressively savvy at emoting, with precision, the right feelings about one guy's journey through his typical day which happens to come off as believably compelling. A definite feel good movie about everyday people trying to make the most of their otherwise very mundane lives. Isn't that what everybody struggles with? The earnest battle against being predictably mundane. Warning; if you are jaded by the high gloss surrealism of $$ films than the chances of you getting this little gem of true film work are probably close to nil. If you happen to have a true eye for art than prepare to laugh harder than you have in a long time.

I have probably watched this movie over ten times and it still remains funny. If you like movies such as Galaxy Quest (a spoof on Star Trek) and you like RPGs, then I bet you'd love this movie. It's got a good story line and great characters. Marsha is played by Jaclyn Hales and she steals most of the scenes. Or rather makes most of the scenes between her and Voss hilarious. If you are a RPG geek (like me) and love really great independent movies then please give this a shot. Oh and the music is perfect for the movie. Not a soundtrack that I'd purchase to listen to apart from the movie, but it is awesome in context with the movie.

Watch it for 15 minutes, if you aren't hooked by then, you are not a geek like me. haha

For the budget it's adorable. It was a cute love story and funny, but one would only understand as a pen and paper gamer.
