The title reflects the gaming competition. A child would enjoy the gaming aspects of the film. Vocabulary and concepts are suitable for the target audience. This is a professional made film, so everything is up to par: clarity, quality, sounds, visuals, lighting, locale, sound track, attire. Keep in mind that there is some fairly aggressive behavior shown, but not unrealistic and there are no graphic instances violence. I believe the target audience will enjoy this film, as it will keep them entertained throughout the film without any lags. They will enjoy the gaming aspect of this film a lot. I do find that the storyline this follows is a bit of typical of a "themed formula." However, so are many major motion pictures from major producers. I am happy to recommend it for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival for ages 12 to 18, as well as adults and give it 4 out of 5 stars.
