I saw it at worlds. It was really cool. I thought Dawn Schwartz did a great job. This was the first Worlds I have ever been to. But It seemed like a very honest portrayal.

It's a decent introduction for people who don't yoyo.  If you want some epic, immersive, inspiring yoyo story, this is not the place.  I think it's funny that the poster quotes an "industry professional" saying it's "a pure joy to watch."  Granted, I'm no "industry professional" but I did not experience pure joy while viewing this documentary.  I think the more knowledgable and passionate you are about yoyoing, the more likely you'll find it's portrayal boring and at some times offensive, like the totally awesome whipping sound effects accompanying the over-dramitized final performances of Jensen, Mickey, and Yuuki.

I'd be interested hearing more about what people think about it, though.
