    "Video Games: The Movie" doesn't just preach to the choir, it puts that choir on a pedestal and costumes it in golden robes.

    Unfocused and repetitive, this feature-length commercial by Jeremy Snead uses a muddled timeline and bargain basement graphics to produce a horn-tooting, "Aren't games awesome?" tone.

    It's a lovefest in which critics' voices and debate are simply absent, and the only talking space is wonder, nostalgia and excitement for the future.

    A by-the-books documentary that gives the history of video games bracketed with the voices of spirited members of the vast community of gamers, Video Games: The Movie is aimed squarely at its target audience.

    The modern stuff is undeniably fawning. But given the eye-popping visuals, you understand the enthusiasm. Especially if you left your heart, and thousands of dollars in quarters, in an arcade.

    Beyond associating breakthroughs with particular years and companies, Video Games: The Movie has trouble moving beyond generalities.

    It takes a certain mix of hubris and willful ignorance to begin a documentary about video games with a quote from Gandhi.

    Despite some organizational issues, Video Games: The Movie is an informative and entertaining look at the birth of the medium we know and love.

    Unwilling to jeopardize his access, Snead turns into a salesman. I'd rather hear more about the creation of Pitfall.

    Video Games: The Movie is breezy and entertaining, but it's also obvious and simplistic. This is Video Games 101, when the people most likely to be interested in seeing it will want to learn something much more.

    You'd have to be a real nob to glean anything substantial from this superficial, haphazardly structured primer on videogame history.
