When aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth in the form of the video games.
I was very hesitant about seeing this movie. From the trailer it looks good but having Adam Sandler and Kevin James in it was working against it, not to mention all the bad review I’ve heard since it’s premiere overseas.
I don’t like Adam Sandler, I think him and his comedy is stuck in the ‘90s and I think 1 out of every 5 of his films, is even worth watching, let alone good!
I like Kevin James and his characters even less!
One thing to do if and when you see this movie is leave your expectations at the door. No, this isn’t going to be cinematic brilliance but it did turn out to be a fun, enjoyable film.
Adam Sandler and Kevin James were… dare I say… not that bad in this. Josh Gad on the other hand was actually very annoying and idiotic – a role that usually is occupied by Sandler and James.
There are a lot of funny moments through out the whole film but there are also some moments where they drag the joke on and on and on until it dies a horrible death. Also the way they portray the British in this film is pretty crap, with stupid, old jokes.
As well as an awesome soundtrack, there is also the cast, aside from the above mentioned; Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage, Brian Cox, Sean Bean, Jane Krakowski and Dan Aykroyd.
An enjoyable, brightly colourful film that I would watch again, maybe even buy when it’s in bargain bin or something.
