Did You Know?


The video games that inspired various segments and scenes and styles in the film include Minecraft, which dominates much of the film's second half, with characters walking around in the shape of pixelated blocks. The game Barbie is building and testing in the film's first minutes looks resemble the Little Big Planet series. "Level One," which features things like a dunk tank and whack-a-mole in the shadow of a carnival atmosphere in a 3D world that also contains power-ups is reminiscent of Nintendo Land meets a 3D Mario game. Level two features characters depicted as being paper-flat, much like Paper Mario. An on-foot and on-track racing level is included, which, slightly more off-the-beaten-path of popular games, is like a similar part of the Monsters vs. Aliens video game adaptation, though it otherwise has the basic set-up and feel of a more traditional family-style racer, like a Mario Kart or the dedicated races in Skylanders Superchargers.

Spectacular! BARBITRON
28 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Imagine Barbie in the films TRON and The Last Starfighter. Barbie is a video game player and programmer who gets sucked into her computer to defeat an evil virus. What follows is a crazy, trippy, colourful ride through video game world, full of cool characters and action - but of course there are none of those NASTY violent games where players slaughter images of humans or some other living (or undead) beings.

This film is so much fun, is hugely entertaining all the way through, and looks amazing, with the visuals changing from game to game. There may also be some deeper meanings behind the story and the names used, but as usual it could be interpreted different ways. Highly recommended! :/ ;) :D :O D:
