Not too bad at 2 minutes
16 July 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is a very short film from director Patrick Jean, who made this 5 years ago. It's a version of a 2015 film which will probably become pretty popular once it gets released, so maybe more people will also see this short movie then. Anyway, Jean includes many video game references, but as it's called "Pixels", obviously the games used in here are all fairly old. Two examples would be Pacman or Pinball. It's a nice little idea and solid execution of a metropolis that is overrun from pixels. I really liked that the director did not drag this longer than necessary because it could have gotten repetitive pretty quickly, but it's all good the way it is. Nothing extraordinary, but a cute little work and I recommend it.
