Critic Reviews for Monster Camp: The Story of NERO Seattle
How much audiences will like Monster Camp may depend on their ability/need to abandon their everyday personas for weekends of fantasy dress-up and battles.
Monster Camp is an endless succession of fantasy enthusiasts talking about nothing.
Monster Camp introduces us to several of its cheerful practitioners, letting what first seems odd slowly make sense to the uninitiated.
At 82 minutes, this visit to a rarely seen world of gamers may begin to feel a little long, unless you're planning to get into the game yourself.
Audience Reviews for Monster Camp: The Story of NERO Seattle
It's a good documentary but I would have liked to get a little more into how the game is played and seen more of that than people talking about what a pain it is to play the game. It's well made and the people are interesting enough to sit through but they all come off a little out of touch with reality. Something none of them are afraid to admit.
Not a bad documentary, its focus on the internal politics of a group of LARPers provides a nice little reminder on human nature, or something. The meat of the movie, though, should be the characters that populate this subculture. They are a colorful group, to be sure, but here too much attention is paid to the logistics of the game itself. That does serve as a means of characterization, as it exposes some of this practice's absurdity, but by the end of the movie I felt like I knew too much about NERO and not enough about LARPing.
Some laughs, sure, but not as involving as Darkon was.
