After moving his family back to his hometown to be with his friends and their kids, Lenny finds out that between old bullies, new bullies, schizo bus drivers, drunk cops on skis, and four hundred costumed party crashers sometimes crazy follows you.
Sam Brenner, Will Cooper, Ludlow Lamonsoff, and Eddie "The Fire Blaster" Plant all played classic arcade video games as teenagers. But now they have to use their skills to try to save the world from aliens. The aliens watched video feeds that they thought was a declaration of war. So they send down the classic arcade games to destroy earth. They also get help from a military specialist. They have three lives and if all three get used then earth will be destroyed, and every time they lose a live the aliens take someone's life. Who will win, us or the aliens? It's an all-out battle to save our planet and everyone on it.Written by
This movie is called "Pixels" because it is loosely based on the shortfilm of the same name by Patrick Jean. See more »
The aliens base their appearance and attacks after arcade game footage from the year 1982. However, several of the game figures that the aliens use for their patterns are from games released after that year, such as Tetris, Arkanoid, and Paperboy. See more »
Look at most of the reviews and judge for yourself
This is my first review and i really had to write it after just coming back from watching Pixels.
I'm not going to really talk about the movie, the premise is simple, its just a show about the old arcade games attacking the world.
Is it fun? Hell yeah it is.
Is it funny? Yep, sure is, is it really really funny? Not really, but are there really really funny shows out there anymore? Nope
Is it worth your money? Yes it is.
So look here, the show is about ARCADE GAMES ATTACKING THE WORLD, so why take things so seriously? The people who slam this movie are going on and on about acting, the show being not funny, lame jokes, Adam Sandler trying to make money
Please..who makes movies not to earn money? Look at yourselves, if you didn't enjoy yourself at this movie, you probably are taking life or yourselves too seriously.
The ratings are low because people enjoy arty farty movies too much? Or they are trying to show that they are sophisticated? Movies are supposed to be fun and this one sure is. Looking at the ratings at rotten tomatoes epitomizes the way people think nowadays, all uptight, trying to find a perfect movie and just plain wet blankets.
