| No-one gets the obvious influences
This is a cult classic B movie that of course is a take on WWF but reviews to date have not pinned down the TEKKEN influence. If the announcer didn't say 'combo' and if that wasn't a big enough clue, the deep voice at the end for the winner ought to have given it away.

There's parodies and nods to Tarantino / Rodriguez movies in terms of video style and events.

This is a fan's movie. I would say that not only does the script have a lot of imagination, but the presenter's puns are actually very funny. As their lines span throughout the picture - one needs to give credit where its due, that's a fair amount of innuendo.

I will admit the acting isn't brilliant, but neither is the acting in great cult movies like 'Evil Dead'. The SFX are as good as your budget TV channel show - if not cheaper.

I think this movie is one to put on low, while you have a party, people will laugh at the pictures and wonder what channel you're viewing. I will agree that it doesn't really have a 'plot', but perhaps the banality and frivolousness of excessive violence is in itself a message. Like Romero used Zombies in the Return of the Living Dead to social comment our own repetitive zombie like behavior to fashion and consumerism as 'zombie-like'. One can then see how Romero's movie is parodied in Shaun of the Dead.

It's not the best horror movie on the market. In terms of referencing real life, cult movie and video game references plus well scripted comedy it does a VERY good job. Unless you know and can reference this movie I think a lot will be lost on the viewer. This explains the poor marks to date. Yes, the movie has bad acting, yes it can seem boring with no plot. But that is like critiquing WWF - Invasion for not having deeper characters. Look at the subject matter and tell me if the Rock or Hulk Hogan are complex characters. I think people will turn off WWF if the writers from BSG or Lost got writing for them.

Anyone who knows pop culture will see where I'm coming from.
