Storyline

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 Alex Tanner

Such hate for this movie from critics WHY!
24 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Took my family to see this movie ages 6 to 14 and everyone had fun and loved it. I don't understand the hate coming from the critics about this movie. Did Adam Sandler steal their lollypop or something? I mean the movie is not the greatest film of all time but it was light and fun and had almost no negatives. Why such hatred. I don't get it, but remember that critics like these said that Star Wars would flop and the ET wouldn't make a dime. Someone brought up Siskel and Ebert and I laugh because they hated both ET and Star Wars. Ignore the critics who hate everything and have no fun in life. Go see this movie don't take it seriously and have some fun!!!
