Movie TrailerWere you expecting Citizen Kane or something? It's not like The Nerd was going to go on an adventure that looked just like a million dollar Hollywood flick...
It doesn't look very good, in my opinion.
It just seems like another typical crappy youtube movie/tv show, like freddiew's video game high school. The random new friends of his seem obnoxious, the acting is bad, and it seems really cheesy.

I wasn't ever expecting it to be good. I like AVGN for the game reviews. As soon as I heard he was looking for filming locations and asking for donations on indiegogo I stopped looking forward to the movie. When I first heard about the AVGN movie I was hoping it'd just be a 40~ min game review. (But like his other videos with other things thrown into the reviews)
Honestly though, I don't see any other way it could have been made. Really, how are you going to make a full length film as the Angry Video Game Nerd? I don't think it's possible without it being really cheesy. Which is why I think it would be better if he didn't do it. AVGN just doesn't work as a full length movie, in my opinion at least.
If you like cheesy movies like that then it might be good, but the movie doesn't look good to me at all. I'll probably at the very least try to watch it because I really like James Rolfe, but I'll being going into it with low expectations.
Sorry if I'm being overly harsh about it. When it comes to movies I usually only watch really serious stuff. I rarely even watch comedy movies. Movies like that just don't appeal to me. If the movie were only 30 minutes I'd feel completely differently about it.. but I don't enjoy watching cheesy comedies with bad acting for an hour and a half.
TL;DR: I take movies too seriously.
