Gamebox 1.0 (2004)

Gamebox 1.0 (2004)
Directed by:  David Hillenbrand and Scott Hillenbrand


Summary:
Charlie (Nate Richert) a video game tester - is ready to embark on his greatest challenge yet - Gamebox 1.0.  While struggling with his most recent loss - girlfriend - Topanga - I mean - Kate (Danielle Fishel), Charlie is placed into a cyberworld in which his own life is in jeopardy.  He now must make the decision of revenging Kate's death or saving his own life.





Conclusion:
With a budget in the thousands - it's hard to believe that this "horror movie" (as categorized by Netflix) didn't make a huge box office splash.  Matter of fact this movie would have sank completely to the bottom of any body of water.  Absolute horrid graphics, terrible acting and even - worse bad editing, this film isn't worth the cost to produce a VHS copy let alone a DVD release.  My two favorite parts are - while playing a Tomb Raider type game - the testers pause the game only to reveal a pause screen that says "Resume Race" and during a flashback scene Topanga states - "I Love you Brian" only problem is the main character's name is Charlie.  Why Topanga?  Why?
