I enjoyed this movie alot, Rick. A round of applause to you, I actually got attached to these characters, specifically Cos and Don, and you ultimately pulled off the ending incredibly. I give it a solid 9.5/10 ThecapcomFreak
The movie was great, no doubt. The film portrayed Don accurately, at least from my point of view, and the ending was sad as hell. The one gripe I do have is that it didn't really portray other people's relationships with Don, but that's minor. Easily a solid 9/10. Great work, Rick. Olliekins
That was a great film, it was cleverly written and the editing was great. 9/10 Madformerspro
Though it suffers from historical inconsistency and a lack of depth behind the legend of it's distinguished director, the message of respect continues to shine through. Currency is a touching tribute to a film legend. 8/10 Zilex1000
The ending was very touching. R.I.P. DonCurrency. I give it a 7/10 Christian F
While I liked the beginning of the film, I cannot get over how many historically inaccurate scenes there are. For one thing, Zilex1000 was never present during the fights between RRP and TMF. Secondly, DonCurrency would NEVER admit that he was wrong and those fights were spreading to every other major Robloxiwood company. While I appreciate the effort Rick, I felt at times this was a propaganda film for RRP and in the end that felt like half of the Don that was real. Rating: 5.7/10 CosimoValuta
Defiantly on of the weaker works of Rick120. Though the writing was fantastic along with the cinematography. Also the score fit perfectly really enhancing the movie. But it started to run dry in the middle. The ending picked things up but i didn't make up for it. Also the vignette and old film overlay got a tad annoying. And little things like morphs and the roblox cursor really took away from the film. 5/10 TheDivergentTribute Robloxian

Trivia

Historical Inaccuracies

  • Zilex1000 was never present during the confrontaion between TMF and RRP.
  • The other major ZZR companies at the time all agreed that RRP needed to be purged of argumentative actors during a corporation-wide meeting to all the other movie corporations.
  • DonCurrency wasn't the only person in RRP's group exiling members. Headlesshorseman12 and another Roblox user were sent in too.
  • RE Studios abstained from discussions of controlling RRP. In the movie, it says that they would be ashamed at what was happening, when in real life they raised no objections.
  • DonCurrency didn't ask for permission to "remake" Revenger123's 2012. The original 2012 film Don created was lost and the current version today is a remake of Don's lost film.
  • During the filming of Dec. 21, 2012, those characters never appeared in the actual movie.
  • The motto for TMF back then was "The True Pictures, of Respect." The film uses the more modern version of the motto, without the comma.
