Best. Documentary. Ever.Reviewed byMatt the ModestVote: 10/10

Literally the perfect documentary, made me feel all the feels. I found myself tearing up several times during my viewing and not for one second did I lose interest. I felt that everything was explained really well, as I might imagine is important for someone not familiar with DotA. Dendi's story is what hooked me the most(no pun intended) and I could relate really well to it, other than the part with his father. What I did find myself drawn to as far as the father figure goes is Fear's life. The only downside I found about it is the fact that they didn't feature the gamer names of most of the players, players who have been just as successful if not more successful than the main three. All in all I think this is an amazing documentary that really takes you into the life of a professional gamer, and the hardships they have to go through in order to make it, where real life is often as tough to conquer as their opponents.

If you're only going to watch one documentary in your life, this has to be it.

An accessible and intriguing look into the world of gamers and gaming.Reviewed bySergeant_TibbsVote: 8/10

Video game producer Valve Corporation's Free To Play is an essential film for documentary lovers and video game enthusiasts. At a light 75 minute running time, it's an accessible pill to swallow, one naturally only brushing the surface, but in an entertaining way. The documentary details the events of The International 2011 based in Germany, the first gaming tournament for the game DOTA 2 with a record-breaking top prize of $1.6 million. Unfortunately as many of its players are teenagers, the tournament was scheduled during exam periods and many potential winners had to sacrifice a lot at home just for the chance at the jackpot.

However, the film wisely chooses three competitors from different teams to sum up the ethos of the tournament and its players, dipping into their backstories at will. They include a Singaporean player who's dealing with a broken heart and a disapproving family, an American player who's suffered from a life of financial trouble and a Ukrainian player who's father recently passed away. Their passion for gaming always shines through. Although many times their stories feel like the typical sob stories you find in entertainment shows, they add an essential conflict and internal desire to the story to make it more engaging. Their hardships are quite down to Earth and relatable, if somewhat sentimentally presented. It at least humanizes the players in a way that makes it feel like the tournament have more camaraderie with something at stake.

You don't need to know anything about DOTA 2 to enjoy the film as it features entertaining and impressive CGI interpretations of the battle, but still as a non-gamer it is difficult to see why the fuss over the game is warranted. It's the one thing that the documentary is lacking on, but it doesn't hinder it too much. Free To Play's main objective is to legitimize the career of a professional gamer, and it works quite well, making it quite tempting. Lacking a credited director, you can only assume that its lead editor had the biggest influence regarding a consistent style and focus, other than the current heads of Valve. Even so, the style is still quite distinct in its slick intimate look, use of text and contemporary choice of electronic music. It's a film that feels breezy and fresh, just trying to bring attention to the next big thing in popular culture, though it's arguable that it's already here. The e-sport will soon become a plain old sport.

Free to Play follows the story of three pro-gamers who are given thechance to win 1 million dollars from the tournament of the online videogame Dota 2. The Ukrainian prodigy Dendi, the American veteran Fear,and the Singaporean talent HyHy.

Right off the bat, this is a beautifully shot and expertly editeddocumentary. The in game footage itself has been spiced up to fit thedrama, and even though you will hear a lot of gaming jargon, it will bevery clear as to whose winning or losing in the heat of things.

What I didn't expect, was the amount of emotion Free to Play builds up.You realize that these players have literally given it all to pursue acareer in gaming and the pressure is on. Pretty much all three,especially HyHy, have parents who blatantly disprove their careerchoices and would rather have them studying and pursuing a more stablepath. The film does not glamourize E-Sports as a sure fire way to fameand fortune. E-Sports is a high risk, high reward, winner takes allindustry and does not guarantee a steady income. How these players dealthe pressure from home, and at a tournament at such a young age istruly remarkable. Close to the end, this movie can become a realtear-jerker for the light hearted.

E-Sports is a fast growing industry, and Valve has made a greatcontribution to promoting it. As for the criticism that Free to Play isjust an extended commercial for Dota is very unfair. It is akin tocalling 'Senna' an extended commercial for Formula 1. Of course thesport in question will be featured time to time. Free to Play is a lookinto the human side of this sport and the motivations and challenges ofthe players. My only real complain is that it is a bit short. I wouldhave loved to see another 20 minutes just to hit the 90 minute mark.

Overall, this is a solid and well made documentary. It is available towatch for free on YouTube and I would recommend playing it in full HD.
