About the Film
Join novice gamer Steve Weibe on his quest to destroy the top score of gaming legend Billy Mitchell, the uncontested champion of the Donkey Kong world for over 20 years. In this battle of good versus evil, find out which of them can truly claim the title King of Kong!
A Worthy Contender
A fun documentary that not only flicks through the history of gaming but teaches what it takes to be a 'true' winner. Nice one Steve!
It took some time for me to get into this documentary but after 20 mins I was hooked. The direction is riveting and it is just as engaging as anything I've seen. This goes proudly in my collection alongside Herzog and Morris and holds its own against both.
Steve Weibe comes out head and soulders above all others in this documentary, both as a skilled gamer and as a decent human being. His struggle against a brick wall of dirty tricks, bias and ungracious losers is conducted with dignity and determination and is a shining lesson for all who watch on how to conduct themselves in life. As a lifelong fan and regular player of the game I have no hesitation in worshipping him as the King of Kong.
Great, great film
A unique little doc that is so much more entertaining and fascinating than I could ever have expected. Highly recommended
