Pixels Movie Review



This movie wasn't as bad as people made it out to be, maybe I'm just saying that because I paid a dollar to see it. But to me the movie was pretty decent for what it was made to be, a family movie. It took elements from old video games, digitized them and added some corny scenes for the sake of being corny because you know, family movie. I don't really understand when critics come and say this movie has no plot line or it was just too corny, well guys because it was made to be that way because you know, family movie.

Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Peter Dinklage lead a talented cast with some cameos by Affion Crockett, Dan Aykroyd, Hall & Oates, Martha Stewart, Dan Patrick and Serena Williams. They even managed to slip in the real Pac-Man creator Toru Iwatani as a repair guy. So needless to say there is no shortage of actors and actresses in this movie that stand out and handle their own. They all pretty much knew what kind of movie it was and they all hit their roles as perfect as they could while having fun with this. To me the actors did a solid job of not overacting and not underacting, it was a perfect balance.

The special effects are awesome in this movie and they needed to be dealing with the whole plot and all. I don't think this movie was in 3D but had I known that it was going to be an alright movie I probably would have paid the freight and saw it in 3D just to see what the visuals would look like. That's saying a lot about a movie that's passable for an occasional watch. I particularly liked the way the video game characters destroyed real world stuff and it all meshed together seamlessly.

Basically this movie was a pretty good one if you were into those video games back in the day and you could teach your kids a thing or two about what it was like to live during that period. Even if you didn't it's still enjoyable enough where you can learn a little something about the video games from that period and still be able to follow the flow of the film. So the film was easy to follow and understand while providing cheesy laughs for your kids. win is a win sometimes, no matter how small people make it seem.

If you saw this movie how did you like it? Was it passable for your family? Leave your feedback in the comments below.
