Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Written with Mr. Spurlock's frequent collaborator Jeremy Chilnick, the film is well organized and visually snazzy and keeps enough distance from its subject that you don't feel swamped in a tide of hysterical fandom.
Fresh: The first surprise of Comic-Con Episode IV is that it's the first Spurlock film Spurlock isn't in. The second surprise is that it's the most entertaining geek lovefest since 1997's Trekkies.
Rotten: Rambling and scattershot, the film seems to be made expressly for the fans, not for a wider audience.
Fresh: Spurlock brings his usual good-humored approach to the subject, nicely balancing absurdity with genuine human interest.
Love letter to the comics fandom
I have just seen this movie and it's beautiful. If you love comics, you'll love this movie and you'll find yourself at home. THe movie tells the story of a bunch of people attending the conference: mighty Chuck Rozanski, the owner of Mile High Comics; a couple of young artists hoping to break into the business; a couple of lovers who started dating at the con last year and a young girl who is hoping to show her skills in designing costumes. It's all about the love for creativity and the passion for fantasy. Highly recommended.
Although not a massive in depth Con documentary, it shows the event to outsiders unaware of such a massive event. Very nice, and definately makes you eager to go!
Best movie I've seen this year. Great fun!
Must see for comic lovers!
