Product Description

In the cut-throat world of Donkey Kong only one man can rule! In this hilarious, critically-acclaimed arcade showdown, an unprecedented rivalry rocks the electronic world to its core! Join novice gamer Steve Wiebe on his quest to destroy the top score of gaming legend Billy Mitchell, the uncontested champion of the Donkey Kong world for over 20 years and find out which of them can truly claim the title King of Kong!

Synopsis

There's more drama in this small documentary than in most serious Oscar contenders. A marriage is on the line, integrity is tested, and friendships falter--all in the name of a video game called DONKEY KONG. THE KING OF KONG may inspire both tears and frustrated sighs, but it's most remarkable for its humour. In the same vein as WORDPLAY and SPELLBOUND, this is a hilarious documentary that enlightens as it entertains. Billy Mitchell is a towering figure in the world of classic video games such as DONKEY KONG and PAC-MAN. He has held records in several games, and his high score in DONKEY KONG (considered the toughest of the old titans) has been unbeaten for decades. But newcomer Steve Wiebe finds purpose in the game after losing his job, and discovers his natural aptitude at the game. The amiable Steve is just as likely to win the 'nice guy of the year' award as he is to best Billy's record, and this film casts him as a classic hero that viewers love to root for.

While Steve is an audience favourite, Billy is a Machiavellian mastermind that rivals any villain from a narrative film. Even though some might argue that the Super Bowl or NCAA tournament is more important, the competition in THE KING OF KONG rivals the most exciting in sports. Thanks to the film's wonderful characters, it's easy to get involved in the drama. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction, and the people who populate THE KING OF KONG are as fascinating as any screenwriter's creation.

Its a documentary, not a film, made on a small budget about the players of Donkey Kong, no cinema release. Watched it last night and it kept me entertained although some of the geeks will set peoples view of gamers back 30 years.

''Billy Mitchell is the closest thing you can get to a Jedi'' Lol, get a grip.

Yeah, but this documentary is much better than most of the rubbish hollywood turns out these days.

Its a good film, as someone who's been in the computer games industry for 25 years, its funny to see there still playing the classics, don't be put off its about computer games, the film is more about jealousy, rivalry and the human psyche than about the games.
