Monahan is at least given the chance to get her teeth into the role of the army specialist drafted in to help kick some otherworldy ass.

After a spring and summer of heavy, earnest dramas, I'm ready for rampaging digits.

Pixels is a likeable and unpretentious piece of summertime fun, if you can let yourself enjoy it for what it is.

It showed a lot of restraint.

It was pretty well-written and coherent.

There's something subversive about the concept: our disposable pop culture has come back to destroy us.

Pixels is intended as a film for younger kids to watch with the parents who played the old school video games in their youth, and it's good, clean fun for both demos.

With echoes of Ghostbusters and Independence Day, it's an entertaining but uneven affair, with the action moving swiftly from India to London to New York.

Pixels is a simple story about video game nerds who get a chance to save the day.

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.

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.

Pixels really is a well-made, totally harmless, highly enjoyable piece of family film confection, and it's hard to connect the venomous reviews with the film that's up there on the screen...Sandler must be laughing his heads off at his haters.

"There is an actual story backbone, told efficiently, with regular laughs, committed performances and a believable throughline on friendship, love and other well-worn themes."

The effects are well done, but sometimes they overwhelm the on-screen action.

It's got all the thrills and spills of an arcade classic and doesn't need a cheat code to make you laugh.

It does just enough to work. Perhaps low expectations contributed to my overall enjoyment of it-an understandable state of mind given recent Kevin James and Adam Sandler films-and it may be slight, but Pixels is admittedly fun.

A light comedy with a heavy dose of nostalgia. [Full review in Spanish]

It's been a while since we've seen a movie so unique and so fresh. [Full review in Spanish]

If you can get past a knee-jerk reaction to Adam Sandler and Kevin James, Pixels can be a lot of fun.

It's an undeniably silly picture, but it's lovingly silly, which makes it go down a lot more smoothly than you'd expect.
