The title is what caught my attention. I just knew it was going to be good. BOY WAS I WRONG!!! A movie based all in one location (desert) and the whole movie was basically about a group of people playing a RPG. The only thing that I did like was the use of the weapons by each person. Hands off to the case because I would not have been able to make this kind of movie knowing that it was not that great. I really did not know how to rate it to be honest because it was that bad to me.

First and foremost, go watch "Avalon" before watching "Assault Girls". Avalon was the movie the director came out with before "Assault Girls" and it makes you understand why the movie was made in this way to begin with.

With that said, "Assault Girls" was lacking as a movie in writing. The Story failed the visuals. We did get a few funny lines at the beginning, and if you are a gamer, you'll get why it's funny. We've all been around to witness dumb gamer banter on PK servers. But the story in its entirety fell short, or rather it felt like there wasn't a story at all, it was more like watching someone's 3D game play. Fun for the user, not always fun for the observer.

Yes, it was filmed in a desert, but that was the gaming environment... get over it.

I hate to refer back to something not everyone has seen, but with "Avalon" they did the reverse. They tried to show equally the in-game and off-game environment.

It showed the universe that the writer of the script wanted to portrait while also, curiously, their choices in unrealistic colors for the real world and realism for the game world gave you a sense that for the player portrayed in "Avalon" the real world held no luster. It's as if her reality wasn't real enough for her.

While with "Assault Girls", the lack of off-game time in the movie was it's downfall because it left us with no real insight into character development. They made a sad attempt with the opening sequence but that was... what? About 15 minutes in or so compared to how long the movie was? There was a shot at working together and collaborating as an undertone at some point too, but because the story was so underdeveloped it either went unnoticed by most or just made any viewer that noticed confused.

In Summary, go watch "Avalon" first if you felt like the movie would have been worth your time with more story in it. Watch "Assault Girls" if you have watched "Avalon" and get the meaning to the long ass written intro in the beginning of the movie. If you get that, watch the rest. You might not think it was worth the time after but you'll understand where the direction went wrong and at least won't think that the movie was a complete waste of time.
