Clumsily edited, the movie is very uneven in tone... but the spirited cast emerge from the jokey carnage with dignity, if not all their body parts, intact.

Frequently sloppy and pretty piecemeal, but also rather funny and oddly likable. Strange flick.

Supernatural slasher haunts a live-action role-playing game. The cast is clearly having fun, but none of it rubs off on us; Peter Dinklage and Steve Zahn are completely squandered.

... the story lends itself to low-cost dragonslaying... Don't look for award-winning performances here, just actors having fun with a brilliant premise. Huzzah!

I've been given a palatable taste of Joe Lynch's Knights Of Badassdom, but I'm now ready for the main course - Lynch's fabled Director's Cut.

A spectacular horror comedy never afraid to dabble in the silly...

Something went horribly wrong in the translation. Although spirited at times, Badassdom takes on familiar targets, while its escalation of oddity is forced when it isn't confusing.

[E]ven while it's apparently not what its creators intended, Knights Of Badassdom is perfectly enjoyable in a low-key way, with sharp performances [...] and a nigh-endless string of cameos

This movie about Live Action Role Players (or LARPers) -- men and women who act out Dungeons and Dragons in real settings, in costumes -- is so haphazard it might have been thought up during a game of Mad Libs.

While the LARPers are ostensibly treated with affection, the film still repeatedly goes for low-hanging comedy fruit such as the histrionic and incorrect olde-English-speak they use while in-game, an obvious gag that quickly grows tiresome.

"Knights of Badassdom" actually delivers everything the 2011 Danny McBride-James Franco comedy "Your Highness" purported to be but fell short on.

A one-note joke and a whiff of a story that fails to offer a single reason - literal or metaphorical - why dressing up as a fictional character is enjoyable or rewarding.
