Well, they tried

This had potential but was sunk by a few things: a plot that made no sense when you stop to think about the series of events/goals/situations, some really bad writing in parts, needless 8 bit transitions, a lack of budget causing there to be no sense of scope of what was going on, a lead actor who was way too young for what was needed, a lead character who was just unlikeable in all ways, KEVIN SMITH RUINING EVERY SCENE HE WAS IN. STOP USING HIM, HE IS TERRIBLE.

I wanted to like this a lot, because it had promise, but it was just one of those things that needed another pass on the script and someone to say NO TO USING KEVIN SMITH.

Nerdier than a wizard's duel

Gamer Max (Tom Plumley) releases "the harbinger" on the world through an old video game. Typically a loner, he needs the help of others to help him save the world.

This was a "no-think" fun film that included "Silent Bob" and Lin Shaye. Hassie Harrison eye candy. Break out the popcorn for a PG-13 family film.

Guide: No sex or nudity. 1 or 2 F-words.

The Nether Blasters and Max Reload.

After the fun of Vicious Fun (2020-also reviewed) I was pleased to see another 80's-set genre flick being presented at GRIMM Fest,leading to me meeting Max Reload.

View on the film:

Aiming to evoke the warm glow of the Family Adventure flicks of the 80's, the screenplay by co-writers/co-directors Scott Conditt & Jeremy Tremp sadly miss their target,due to little urgency coming across in Max and his interchangeable buddies sprint to save the world from a boo-hiss baddie,with 8-Bit gaming lingo dialogue coming off as being forced into an Adventure that suffers from stop/start glitches.

Whilst the coding for the script sadly turns out faulty, the directors display their love for video games with vibrant 8-Bit animation, slick whip-pans towards Max and his pals fighting to defeat the cursed Colecovision game, and neon-lit wide-shots on Kevin Smith unloading gaming trivia in the game shop,as Max reloads.
