What an amazing documentary about winning the title of the best player of Donkey Kong...Billy Mitchell is truly a punk who does not deserve the title and Steve Wiebe is the true King if Kong. The story is just so great.

My favorite documentary. Since I am also a big video game fan, this film spoke more to me than other documentaries out there. If you remember the retro style video games back in the day, or you just want a great film, see it.

Billy Mitchell is such a damn douche. Steve Wiebe though is deserving of the the title. Heartwarming ending... This film is so funny. Awesome movie.

I like it. I find myself more interested in the subject matter and the people in the documentary more than I thought I was going to be. Although, it feels a little too staged and dramatic for me (and the stuff with Steve as a underdog and Billy trying to one-up (pun intended) him was proved to be fabricated).
