Time Out says
Nomadic tribes battle for power in the kingdom of Darkon, as the imperialistic Mordom clan threatens to take over the realm. Did we mention that these gladiators are really live-action role-playing Starbucks managers, wielding foam weapons in the fields of Maryland? Luke Meyer and Andrew Neel’s doc regards these fantasy-fueled weekend warriors with great amusement and affection, though any deeper psychological insight past “here, I’m no longer a nobody” is AWOL. Still, it’s hard not to sympathize with this misfit community or giggle at the “epic” war-game sequences, filmed like a community-college remake of Lord of the Rings.
