Exclusive tidbits on Gwen in Knights of Badassdom

Added by chrisdvanne on Jan 22, 2014 | 4 COMMENTS


While fans who attented Tugg screenings of Knights at Badassdom and online bloggers have started to share their impressions of the movie (Read: Knights of Badassdom Screening Impressions), there is little we know about Summer's role...until now.
Find below exclusive tidbits on Summer Glau's role as hot, intimidating, ass-kicking LARPer Gwen. Of course we'd love to hear your own impressions if you've seen the movie.

Exclusive tidbits on Summer's role in Knights of Badassdom

 
Trap Jaw is an online blogger at ScareTissue and as such was lucky enough to attend an early screening of Knights of Badassdom last week. The good news is that he was kind enough to share  with us exclusive tidbits on Summer Glau's role as Gwen in the horror comedy directed by Joe Lynch and starring, besides Summer Glau, fans favorite Ryan Kwanten, Peter dinklage, Steve Zahn and Danny Pudi.
 
Summer Glau Wiki: How is Summer Glau's on screen chemistry with the other characters, especially with Ryan Kwanten, since Gwen is supposed to be her love interest.
Trap Jaw: Gwen (Summer Glau) is aloof to the other characters.  She has a protector that shields her from those that hit on her, but you can tell she's smitten with Joe (Ryan Kwanten) immediately. To me, it looks like she was showing off during the larp for Joe.  Unfortunately, there's not really a whole lot of time left as the movie gets going to explore her character.  
 
Summer Glau Wiki: Does Summer really deliver the whole "I'm not really into this but I'm playing along with it" role?
Trap Jaw: In a way, yes.  Although she's "not really into the game", she sure looks like she's having fun.  The best example of this is when she has a sword battle protecting Joe and smiles shyly at the camera (towards Joe).  Other than that, she isn't really asked to do a whole lot in the role you described.
 
Summer Glau Wiki: Hopefully Summer's character has a few great lines and some good action bits.
Trap Jaw: Honestly, this movie has such a big cast that everybody was fighting for screen time as it progresses.  This is good and bad.  It's good as it took time to set up the finale and didn't just string scenes together, but it's bad as you lose characters along the way (not death, but just not much camera time).
 
Summer Glau Wiki:  Finally, what is your general impression of Knights of Badassdom?
Trap Jaw:  It's not a bad film.  The pacing is good, and the acting is fine.  It just feels unfinished.  The CGI is ok and really bad.  The finale is a great setup, but the ending is meh.  It's not as bad as all those reviews say it is, but it's not as good as it could have been.
 
 
Trap Jaw has a full review coming out, that the distributor asked him to hold off until VOD week, so keep an eye on scaretissue.com for Knights of Badassdom review and feel free to the site for more horror movie reviews...from guys who love them.
 

Exclusive tidbits on Summer's role in Knights of Badassdom

 
But there's more coming. KortoloB at the Summer Glau Reddit asked lucky movie-goer, and Summer Glau fan, skoll for his impressions and kindly allowed us to share them with us:
 
KortoloB: How big would you say Summer's role was in the film?
skoll: Without spoiling anything, she played a major role. Definitely was one of the characters with some of the most screentime.
 
KortoloB: Was there a romantic subplot involving her?
skoll: For your second question, yes, but thankfully they weren't trying to shove it down your throat. I'd say it was minor and didn't detract from the rest of the movie or her performance.
 
Vlad Golovin is a dedicated fan and kindly send us his own review of Knights of Badassdom:
 
I watched Knights of Badassdom last night with my friend and we loved it. In fact I will probably go and see it again tomorrow as there's more showtimes in the other theater starting Friday and who knows when I'll be able to buy it. Before I watched it I had some doubts because of things I read on the internet. I'd say it exceeded my expectations being a low budget film. It was very enjoyable to watch. Storyline was pretty good and although I would love to have Summer Glau get lot more of the screen time, I am glad there was actually a lot more of it than I expected to be. There were so many funny moments and characters were so likeable that the whole audience was cheering lot more than I ever heard in a theatre. I recorded a few clips from it, but don't think it's alright to upload it. Wish they released it on Netflix and Amazon too, because apparently not many theatres in the country playing this movie.
 
 
A huge thank you to Trap Jaw, KortoloB, skoll and Vlad for these impressions which, I hope, will get you even more excited to see Knights of Badassdom through a Tugg screening near you, on VOD or on DVD/Blu-ray when it's available.

The feedback was really great from the both of them, maybe I thought probably slightly different reviews on the movie itself, I was quite pleased to hear Summer played a major role from KortoloB, but then again as Trap Jaw explains It just feels unfinished, but yes a big thank you from Trap Jaw and KortoloB for all their information, still can"t wait to see the film whatever reviews we get to read leading up to the release.

I usually try to stay away from reviews and impressions coz I don't like spoilers but where Summer is concerned I just need to know!!
I have to restrain myself from downloading early cinema cams. I don't want to see a second rate copy.
i'm really looking forward to this movie!!

Most of the reviews and online comments I've seen are non-spoilerish.
