Pixels — Sci-fi action and silly fun in boatloads — 8*/10

  • Scenario: The story is extremely simple, it's basically what you saw in the previews. That being said, the basic concept is genius and the whole production is hilarious, especially if you know anything about the 80's, more so if at the time you used to go to arcades. My only gripe is the Lady Lisa side story, except for the epilog, I think it was an badly handled, she should have stayed pixelated. Nonetheless, the action is superb, in a nerdy way, the silliness is all over the place and the entertainment value is really high.
  • Known actors: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, Brian Cox, Sean Bean, Jane Krakowski, Dan Aykroyd, Jackie Sandler, Serena Williams (she didn't do too bad and looked like a goddess in her evening gown) and Martha Stewart.
  • Visual & sound: Great, you can't expect much better visually. Musically, any reason was a good reason to play an 80's classic.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Who is it for? Those looking for a silly sci-fi with lots of action, and any Sandler, James, Dinklage or Gad fan because they all shine pretty brightly.
