A man has to protect his perfect mix from falling into the wrong hands

Pros: 10 Trucks have a particular style of things looking a little bit bad, which is fine. It actually adds to it, because it increases the humour value of this film. A lot of cheesy lines and acting, but done well!

Cons: Might have gone a bit overboard with it. The sound really could have used a bit more work, and some bits seemed a little dark.

Overall: A funny, silly film, not trying to be more than it is. I also really love their team logo animation.

Loved the use of the memory card as the "card". Unfortunately I was slightly confused during most of the movie, sorry, guess this one wasn't my favourite genre. On a bright note, the villain at the end was the highlight for me.

Very cheeky use of genre, but that suited the team and their style perfectly so that is a plus.

For a film about music, the sound was terrible. Get a soundy on your team next year PLEASE. Alternatively, fire the person who was in charge of sound. The only sound issue that they DIDN'T have was sync, every other fluff up was present.

Some funny lines muddled with bad acting and video, this is what I came to see. Would have rated higher had sound not been such a distraction.

Good genre use, bad sound. Vic has composed a killer track and meets with a DJ that wants to play it but is ambushed by Eastern Europeans who want to use his music for evil. The music guns were great, quite funny overall, unfortunately the sound changed so often it was hard to hear some parts. They really seemed to embrace their techno thriller genre with a mix of 80's ideas with up to date tech. Enjoyed it overall but the sound let it down for me

Loved the crazy music guns and the fun quirkiness of the film but found it somewhat confusing...liked the villain at the end....

A techno thriller that both borrows on the tropes of actual techno thrillers and is also just a thriller about techno music. Lo-fi production values with over the top characters and a killer bassline had me in stitches all the way through. Easily a contender for best cult film, just a shame the ending track wasn't as awesome as the bad guy's webcam.

Joked on the use of the techno thriller genre by incorporating techno music into it. The Germans reminded me a bit of the nihilists in The Big Lebowski. It was a bit too goofy to get any serious traction however and the actors didn't quite pull it off, particularly the action sequences which suffered from too easy solutions. But I guess it was parody but it would be better to actually do the genre me feels than make a parody of it, as that i another genre altogether.

I can't really say what I would have done for tech-thriller, but I would never have thought of this. I'm not sure if they were playing for laughs the whole way through with the script and acting, or whether they got unintentional laughs, but the audience appreciated it.
