You won't have a bad time watching this movie and it has spectacular action sequences, but the result is totally insulting to the gamer culture and the geek world we live in. [Full review in Spanish]

I did not laugh a single time during this movie.

The movie defines "safe", covering all the family-friendly bases with the sincerity of a Las Vegas casino lounge act.

Not as bad as advance word - the words being "Adam Sandler movie" - would suggest. Still ...

Bad movie "Pixels" is just the latest pock mark on Adam Sandler's still downtrending career, only noteworthy in its unprecedented slothfulness.

The idea and the potential is there, however, with Hollywood's favourite man-child there to show us the way - yes, we're looking at you Mr. Sandler - you can't help but feel that this could have been something great, had it landed in someone else's lap.

Pixels feels like a wasted opportunity. Kids today won't care, while big kids will just despair.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 7, 2016
It's a neat idea for a parody disaster film but it's wholly lost in this melange of underwritten characters and awful dialogue.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 25, 2016
There are one or two funny jokes in here but they mostly serve to remind us (as does a brief cameo from Dan Akroyd) that there are funnier films we could be watching.

There's literally not one thing about the plot, characters, tone, morality, or basic comprehensibility about the scenario in this form that works.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

There is the occasional laugh-out-loud gag, the action is well done and there's certain nostalgia to watching Pac-Man tear up New York. But playing Space Invaders offers more surprises.

Adam Sandler doesn't care what you think. If he did, Pixels would be a meaningful comedy filled with hilarious observations about the world in which we live.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

If you're old enough to remember the likes of Frogger and Q-Bert, you're probably too old for the film's generally puerile humour.
December 3, 2015
There was room to surround the undeniably beautiful video-game scenes with moments of nostalgic wit, but Pixels is, unfortunately, mostly a long, dreary slog.

Pixels creates a world where the citizens willingly elected Paul Blart, Mall Cop as president, and yet I'm expected to root for these people in their fight against the aliens.
November 10, 2015
There are scenes in the surreally lazy, occasionally funny Pixels in which Sandler's face slips into the exact same weary, disgruntled expression he wears in Funny People.
November 6, 2015
A film about video games for people who hate video games.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 5, 2015
Poisoned by a noxious sexism that even Pac-Man -- not to mention Ms. Pac Man -- would find hard to swallow.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 20, 2015
Coming up short in terms of both humour and story, Pixels runs out of lives well before the closing credits.

September 16, 2015
Pixels calms down and doesn't contain a lot of internal logic, but with Monaghan and Dinklage to do the heavy lifting, it manages to stay afloat.
