Definitely worth watching, so pop some corn grab a drink and tuck in.

This is probably one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

Enjoyable, entertaining .

The characters were boring and had no depth.

Unfortunately, Knights of Big Bang Theory lacks any of the directorial skill exuded by FDTD, and while my interest actually became piqued once the revelation that this was a slasher film came to light, the novelty soon wore off as it devolved back to its plodding pace and cringe inducing dialogue and I remembered there was still about an hour left of this crap to go.

The plot is very slow moving and never really apparent.

Non existing plot, boring from the beginning to the end.

The best thing about the movie is the cast is pretty engaging with the exception of Summer Glau which was half of the reason I watch this movie.

I would compare this movie to "Sharknado" in that both give the impression of being movies that were originally written as serious genre films (disaster and horror respectively) and someone had the sense to make them so over the top as to become entertaining camp.

I thought this movie was fun and entertaining, despite it not being THE GRAETEST MOVIE EVAR MADE.

If it is, it is one of the most enjoyable B movies this reviewer has ever seen.

As a player of Dungeons & Dragons, but with no possible interest or understanding in the LARP thing, then I still found the movie to be enjoyable.

Boring and unfunny - I can't recall a single line that stood out amongst the crowd.

) and moves in a slow and predictable manner.

And despite the nerdy geekness, then the storyline was actually very entertaining.

There were countless times that they could have made something humorous, or even hysterical, but instead it fell totally flat and was just bland.

One of the most enjoyable memories I have is Saturday B movie night.

Waste of time ever .

There is a lot of cool gore flying around and the demon (that gets transformed from human form to something more exciting) is a really nice large man in a rubber suit affair which wouldn't look outta place in a Hellboy flick.

And the coda at the end was pointless.

"Knights of Badassdom" is well worth watching if you are into roleplaying games, LARPing, or if you just had a geeky nerd hidden somewhere in your heart.

When Ryan Kwanten's character started singing at the end to defeat the daemon, I wanted to turn it off.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen.

In a vain attempt to ensure Joe does not spend the entirety of the weekend lounging around in a depressed state, his friends Hung (played by the always entertaining Peter Dinklage) and Eric (Steve Zahn), after a night of drugs and alcohol, force him to attend their Live Action Role Play (LARP) event, held on the battlefield of Evermore, which is really not as prestigious as it sounds.

And to avoid being long-winded, Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn and Jimmi Simpson are as entertaining and believable as ever.

They start to get more courageous and the movie is generally more entertaining.

) I can understand fans of larping enjoying this film, as that unique aspect was the only half way saving grace of this snore-fest.

Despite the movie's budget, then director Joe Lynch actually managed to put together a fun and enjoyable movie.

It combines all the geeky elements and timeless lingo of classic video games along with an enthralling fantasy plot (derived from a an immensely popular RPG), to deliver an instantaneous cult film that's high on excitement, thrills, action, humor, and pure adrenaline.

It was an unexpected treat to have it be as serious as it was.

Still, it's worth watching.

The world and the atmosphere of the film is unique in every aspect, which makes it quite enjoyable and fun.

Boring and Unfunny .

Don't WASTE YOUR TIME.

They had such and awesome cast and a great concept and then they started killing of all the fun characters until only the boring protagonist was left.

when i first discovered this movie it's rating was 9.1!!!!and it was such a surprise for a comedy..when i watched it had a rating of 8 and i totally regret watching this movie..if you want to torture someone then its good..otherwise don't waste your time unless you are drunk ...

A real movie, fun and entertaining that will stay in your collection and you will show it to your kids.

The film was overall very entertaining, with a form of dark humor mixed with a lot of weird stuff.

Not As Good As It Could Have Been, But Enjoyable None The Less .

The characters are not very well written - for the most part they act, think, and speak all alike, and they are uniformly boring to observe.

Entertaining .

Don't waste your time.

Save your money.

Had this been any other type of event where the plot happened, I wouldn't have enjoyed it as much I think.

The premise sounds great but the result is just a boring, plodding mess that leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth.

Pacing is not bad and the film makers have a handle on the craft part, but there is no story and very little humor.

The presence of Ryan Kwanten ("True Blood"), Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones"), and Steve Zahn ("Treme") in the cast suggests that the actors got bored one summer just hanging around while their respective series were on hiatus, and this is what they came up with to fill the void.

Still the storyline was good and since I have always found the subject of LARP rather amusing it was entertaining.

OverviewDespite what appears to be a low budget production that seems to be filmed over a short period of time this movie was very entertaining for the most part.
