Each area of the film's production is carefully dissected, including the writing, production design, cinematography, editing, sound, technology, workflow, and direction. Each of these areas contains a myriad of decisions that were made in effort to fulfill the overall vision of the movie as being a genuinely funny action film produced with a high production value, and these decisions are discussed at length. Documented feedback from test audiences is also reviewed in an attempt to objectively critique the final film
