Synopsis This whimsical and visually striking valentine to the ’80s is a hysterically funny homage to childhood and the movies. Entranced by a pirated copy of First Blood, two extremely opposite kids set out to make the ultimate action prequel. Their innocent ambition to create their own epic leads to a precarious rollercoaster adventure and an unlikely friendship that is pushed, quite literally, to the breaking point. This is loosely autobiographical quasi-coming-of-age tale from Garth Jennings, director of the amusing Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy feature.
