Despite the shameless Trekkie jokes and the fact it resembles a Martin Clunes sitcom, there's many a gentle chuckle to be enjoyed in this comedy about 'unleashing the hero within'.

A British underdog comedy of no great distinction.

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.

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.
