BEYOND THE GAME is a fascinating look at the incredibly popular online game "Warcraft III." The documentary follows the world's best game players in the run-up to the World Championship Cybergames. Using a traditional narrative structure, filmmaker Jos de Putter slows down the actions and renders this unusual world familiar to outsiders, casting the contenders in a story of all-or-nothing competition between players in their prime. This game may be new but the story is as old as drama itself.

Great example of a moving that can be enthralling even though the viewer is not a gamer. Nice profiles of three key personalities with great interviews with secondary characters. A bit more info about the Warcraft gameplay might have made it difficulty better to comprehend but still a recommended film for any doc fan - gamer or not.
