What has emerged is an ordinary film that might have been made for television at any time in the past few decades.

It all feels very samey, the comic potential of the mock battles never approached with genuine enthusiasm but treated as a mere gag, and one which soon outstays its welcome. Amiable yet underwhelming.

The laughs come few and far between in a story as drab as the Northern skies under which it is set.

No gimmick in the world can save this froth.

Faintheart is a wild folly. It's a romantic comedy devised, directed, cast, and produced by the online members of MySpace. In this slender respect it's a genuine sensation. But it looks and feels as knock-kneed as the ingredients.

INTERNET-Generated Movie So Bad Even Cinemas Vow to Show it for Free. No, not a headline from The Onion, but the actual fate of Faintheart.

Even if you hate it, the only thing you'll be wasting is your time.

Faintheart, which bills itself as the world's first user-generated movie, is a middling sitcom that could have crawled fully formed from the head of a jaded TV executive.

The internet is supposed to broaden our horizons, yet Faintheart feels like a return to the Dark Ages.

By Odin, it's a totally unexpected hoot.

Put away your eight-sided dice and go seek this immensely likable, sparky little comedy about fantasy, reality and love conquering all.

Watchable, by-the-numbers romantic comedy with a few decent gags and a strong performance from Eddie Marsan.
