Pixels is a movie about old video games coming to life. The humans have 3 lives and if they do not win the aliens (video games) will destroy planet earth. The military is to no use anymore, and therefore earth’s existence depends on Brenner (Adam Sandler), Ludlow (Josh Gad) and Eddie (Peter Dinklage). They are 3 video game experts who will defeat the aliens.
The movie is very good, it is different and that is what I like about the movie. Often aliens are very ugly and a little fun to look at but these aliens were just extremely cute! I also laughed a lot which always makes the movie better, and Adam Sandler is one of the best when it comes to comedy.
The storyline were not amazing, not much happened. The only reason why it would be in the Action and Sci-Fi genre might be due to the fact that it has aliens and that characterizes at least Sci-Fi. Other than that I could just see how it would be in the comedy genre. Although it might show that Action and Sci-Fi not just have to be about ugly aliens, new worlds or lightsabers.
Do not be fooled by IMDB’s rating, if you like Adam Sandler and like to laugh, or just old video games, then I say you go and watch it! 7 out of 10 stars!
Don’t forget to enjoy a movie at least once a week, you deserve it! 😀
