In Britain the Police Federation brands it as sick and contemptible whilst politician Hillary Clinton accuses it of “stealing the innocence of our children.” Most vocal of its critics is crusading Florida lawyer Jack Thompson who, in the wake of an Alabama teen-ager going on a killing spree and blaming the game, attempts to get it banned, bringing a court action against the Housers and their company Rockstar Games, now based in San Diego. However Thompson’s public denunciation of the game is instrumental in determining the outcome of the court case.
Plot: This 90-minute factual drama goes behind the scenes of the hit video game Grand Theft Auto, arguably the greatest British coding success since Bletchley Park. The fastest-selling entertainment product in history comes not from Silicon Valley, but is driven by a bunch of British game designers. Friends since their school days, they are led by the game’s mastermind-designer, Sam Houser. By 2002, Sam and his creative team have constructed for their fans a vast virtual world, teeming with a high-octane mix of criminal characters, lethal weapons and outrageous storylines. Here you can even shape and sculpt your avatar, crafting their character and appearance to your personal preference. This drama is for an adult audience and has not been authorised by the producers of Grand Theft Auto. Rather, it is based on court documents and interviews with many of those involved in the real events behind this compelling story.

An interesting idea that’s sadly a little dull.
Not being a gamer I’ll be honest and say I’m not exactly fully aware of how huge some games are, but even I knew the stories of GTA and Sam Housers goings on. I had no idea he was a Brit. I’m sure lots of it was dramatised, it was a fairly interesting concept for a TV movie, but did it deliver?
The story focuses on the moral story of GTA. Houser wants to push the boundaries of gaming, make them more graphic, bigger and more realistic. The moral argument is brought by Attorney Jack Thompson, a god fearing man that believes the game is responsible for the plight of America’s youth, and the cause of a teenager’s killing of two cops.
I like Daniel Radcliffe, I feel he had a tough time of it, as he was the only real interest throughout, I found some of the other performances a little flat and unforgettable.
Put it this way I won’t be buying the DVD, it passed the time whilst I assembled a bench, not particularly engrossing or exciting, quite dull on the whole. 4/10
A unique style of mocumentary
Gives both sides of the argument about how the level of influence the games industry has.
I think it is thought provoking but gives both sides of the arguments and presents them in a unique style.
A lot of negative comments on here I think come from people who want to defend the games industry – but this really does give both sides of the argument and I learnt a lot at the same time as finding it entertaining.
They should do another one about COD!
