CFDb Review:

Although there was no Christianity in this film, it was marketed to Christians and therefore it is on CFDb.  This is a film we just enjoyed for the sake of enjoyment.  The sound effects were fantastic, as well as the musical score.  A bit goofy, but if you like Lord of the Rings, you should enjoy this one.  I giggled during several parts of this film and normally I do not like silly films.  Favorite characters were Randall & Stacey.

Film Synopsis:

Randall Dooley is a geek. His three best friends are geeks too, he works in a game shop, he spends all his free time playing online games, his older brother bullies him unmercifully, his widowed mom doesn’t understand him, and he’s hopelessly in love with the prettiest cheerleader in high school.

In short, he’s a loser.

All of that changes when he hears of the Lord of the Rings gaming competition in Orlando, Florida. Finally! Meaning in life!

Randall’s guild of online-gaming geeks is the best around. They’re a cinch to win their area and gain a spot in Orlando. However, right before the regionals, Randall is framed for drugs by a gaming rival and expelled from high school. He’s grounded for life and going nowhere-least of all, the gaming competition in Orlando.

After the principal refuses to believe the evidence showing he’s innocent, Randall is left with only one option: vindication at the gaming competition. He and his gaming friends steal the class car, rebuilt by the inept hand of students in auto shop and hit the road.

Evading capture by Randall’s older brother, the four friends fall in with a commune of hippies in the forest, get in a paintball war and finally make it to Orlando with the assistance of a hamburger-loving vegetarian hippie.

At the gaming competition, Randall and his friends evade capture by the security guards in order to reach the convention commissioner. Vindicated of guilt, they enter the competition and find victory, true love and sweet revenge.

The Fellows Hip: Rise of the Gamers is a buddy-comedy written in honor of online gamers and The Lord of the Rings. Full of Tolkien-references and good-hearted parody, The Fellows Hip will appeal to Tolkien-fans and gamers alike, as well as anyone who’s never been part of the in-crowd.

    I have this on DVD, and it’s a stuido-quality production with a story that’s much better than most of the junk coming out of Hollywood. Great entertainment for the whole family.

    Is there any faith element to the film?

    We haven’t seen it yet, but we’ve been told there is a faith element in it, although it may be very little.

    complete waste of time, can not imagine suggesting anything of christian value attached to this film. I watched it 2x because the first time i turned it off 15 minutes into it because of its ridiculousness, being centered around gaming and gamers, which in my opinion is a pathetic ploy to target kids, just like cigarette makers manufactured candy cigarettes in lovely colors.

    But i gave it the benefit of a doubt and watched it all the way through and well….I was as I thought I’d be, disappointed!
