Synopsis


Knights of Badassdom
A geeky group of Live Action Role Players (LARP) must summon their inner heroes when one of them inadvertently conjurs-up a sexy succubus with diabolical intentions. Deeply depressed following his messy break-up with Beth (Margarita Levieva) forlorn metal-head Joe (Ryan Kwanten) is abducted by his fantasy-prone roommates (Peter Dinklage, and Steve Zahn) and inducted into the world of LARP - where imaginative gamers assume the roles of knights, wizards, and maidens. As foam swords are drawn and cardboard battle-axes clash, Joe finds himself starting to have a good time when one of his roommates - a would-be sorcerer - casts a spell that actually works. Now, a cruel succubus has crossed into our reality, and she's claiming the lonely LARPers one-by-one. To make matters worse, she's assumed the form of Beth, which makes her nearly irresistible to Joe. With the evil strengthening and the body count rising, Joe and his roommates realize that in order to stop the seductive demon, they must cast aside their fake weapons, and summon the courage to fight a force of pure evil. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    There aren't too many movies that deal with the Live Action Role Playing Genre out there, besides this one the only one I can think of in the last few years would be Role Models. That said, this is a low budget, direct to DVD release film that somehow lands several established actors. The plot is your basic man finds a book and unleashes evil type film (kind of like Evil Dead) but still found a way to work in a lot of comedy. Peter Dinklage does a great job in his role and carries the film for the bulk off it IMO, however the supporting cast did a nice job of being interesting and playing their roles well so that you didn't notice any real talent fall off once you stepped away from the main characters. If you enjoy fantasy comedies or even LARP based movies you'll probably enjoy this one. Grab the one from BB as their version (I believe) is the only one that comes in both DVD and BD formats.

    If you have ever loved a "nerdy" Genre show anywhere on TV, odds are one of its stars is in this movie! Serenity, True Blood, Came of Thrones, Community, Buffy.... They are all here and are top notch! If you can wrap your head around the concept of L.A.R.P.ing (live action role playing) then you are bound to love this movie! Between it's A+ cast, original story line and practical effects, there's really no way you can go wrong with this movie. Other than being chincy on the special features I can't find a fault with this blu ray at all. If you understand the subject matter of what your getting ready to watch and expect nothing more than a fun little movie staring people that you already love from other things, you will not be disappointed! Enjoy!

    Loved this movie. All the comedy and funny I expected from this crew was definitely there. The trailers and commercials don't really do a good job of preparing you for the amount of gore the movie has though, so it can catch you off guard if you aren't expecting it. I don't have a problem with gore, but some of the folks I had invited over to watch it were a little put off by it. It isn't so bad that it takes away from the movie though, and everyone stuck it out and enjoyed the show. Definitely recommended if you're a fan of anything fantasy/medieval, LARPing or even Peter Dinklage.

    Where is joe lynch's version

    Rumor has it that director joe lynch's vision of this movie was taken from him and butchered into a producer's cut without his approval. Fans had been waiting for his movie for over 2 years so I am just happy it was released at all. It is funny and goes into the Larp world like the movie role models did. Unfortunately we will more than likely never see the director's cut so be happy with what we have. I still recommend the movie. Peter dinklage, Steve zahn, Ryan kwanten, summer glau. Nice!

    I bought this not knowing too much about it because one of my buddies is actually in the movie so I had to check it out. It actually turned out to be a fun little flick if you like ridiculous, over the top type of movies. Could have been a little better however as it seemed to fall short in a few areas that kept it from achieving greatness.

    The cover and cast sold me at the store. I watched it a couple days later and found it familiar but not a carbon copy of anything else I've seen. The effects team behind this movie did a great job with practical effects. The cast is all somewhat noticeable in the film/tv world. Very interesting take on the story come the end.

    Peter Dinklage is the man! And so is Summer Glau. Seriously though. The plot could be better, but it's been a great film to watch when you're a little bored. It's filled with great one-liners, and some intense action sequences. It was unexpectedly graphic, but there are worse problems to have in an action or fantasy film.

    If you do not go in expecting this to be some big comedy like Ted or an action movie like Underworld then you should enjoy this movie. It is to Larping Movies what Community is for TV Shows. NOT FOR KIDS, some of the deaths are more graphic than we expected but not near some other movies that are popular.
