Storyline

When the Nostalgia Critic can't stop blaming himself for the loss of Ma-Ti, a weird string of events begins to unfold that could shake the very fabric of internet reviewing as we know it. The evil Psychlo, Terl, under orders from a mysterious bureaucrat, is out for revenge against the Critic and convinces the government to arrest him, while Mechakara is reprogrammed to incapacitate Linkara and take his place. Meanwhile, Paw and his friends discover some weird signals emitting from space and Spoony seems to be the key to it all. Finally, they discover that this force is Ma-Ti, whose spirits inhabits The Plot Hole, in which no life can be sustained...without horrific mishaps. In order to try and right his wrongs and find purpose within his life, the Critic summons his colleagues NChick, Paw, Cinema Snob, 8-Bit Mickey, Bennett the Sage, Luke Mochrie, Film Brain, Phelous, Todd, Lupa, "Linkara", C.R., JesuOtaku, Angry Joe, JewWario, Sad Panda and MarzGurl for help. They steal equipment ... Written by explorerds6789

a flawed epic of internet reviewer cosplay-comedy-WTF-ness proportions
8 September 2015 | by Quinoa1984See all my reviews

This is kind of an 'averaged out' review of this movie, which I consider it so since even as it's in 8 parts it fits like one (a VERY long one). It has big peaks and valleys - in the last segment it has a turn in the climax I really loved, which is that the power of criticism and pointing out plot-holes ends up saving humanity. Very funny and kind of touching the way it was edited and pulled off. There's a lot of wonderful one-liners, the performance by Brad Jones actually was convincing, which surprised the f*** out of me, and I generally liked the whole plot-hole device. And the "Distraction" song was a fun set piece, mostly by Lindsey Ellis' ALL in the role.

... It's also, as I said, way, unfortunately too long. By an hour, at least. And a lot of the jokes - that are, chunks of the Star Wars jokes, where they basically take the original trilogy and turn it into Mad Libs - are hit or miss, mostly miss with some exceptions (the very last gag in the special is great). But there's just too many characters, and a lot of jokes that fall totally flat. And some of the people, frankly, can't act at all. And when it becomes amateurish with the writing/jokes/etc/etc, you can tell. And what happened with the whole Copyright-suit plot point early on? Did it just fall into Rob Walker's plot line as the "Emperor" of the sell-out crowd? And the "Evil" Linkara thing was tired after a while (given a slight boost with Todd in the Shadows - you'll see).

So, overall, it showcases a lot of what is fun and exciting and weird about this group of reviewers and their pop-culture-mania, and try to take it to the limit. I'd say it's almost TOO epic in a way, like the Heaven's Gate of internet-anniversary specials, but it's not exactly a 'mess'. I'm not even sure where I would cut things, save for a joke here or two or five. It's an example of splendid if over-indulgent entertainment for its key crowd, but maybe they'll win over a few newcomers (it does an OK job filling in some gaps from previous specials, though prior knowledge helps). And as for where they'll go from here... hell if I know.
