The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters (2007)

This is a fantastic movie. They could have made the same movie about the Kick Off 2 world no doubt, only better and more dramatic!

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0923752/

A review from IMDB:

KING OF KONG is one of the greatest movies I've seen in a while - not documentaries, movies. The film-making here is nothing short of extraordinary - building suspense, creating anticipation, and playing with the archetypes like the best Hollywood movies.

If you have ever played the original Donkey Kong arcade game, or on the original Nintendo, you have to see this movie. I have never beaten Level 3 on the third cycle - the spring on the elevator stage, if you know what I'm talking about, is going extremely fast. These guys get beyond 20 cycles.

I don't want to give anything away...I heard they are going to make this a feature movie with actors, but I think that eliminates the main draw of this concept - these guys are in their forties, in some freak cases have wives and children, and they play Donkey Kong with as much heart as Lance Armstrong rode bikes. They are some of the strongest characters I've seen in a movie since STAR WARS. To best summarize how enjoyable this movie is, after watching the DVD for the first time, I immediately restarted it from the beginning, and watched it again.

Not sure if this was the one I saw, but it was about this guy aiming to break the world record...

Yeah saw this on Netflix a while back and it's quality isnt it. Great film and especially for all us KO2 fans, a film that would strike a chord.
