Pixels is a likeable and unpretentious piece of summertime fun, if you can let yourself enjoy it for what it is.
April 28, 2020
It showed a lot of restraint.
April 28, 2020
It was pretty well-written and coherent.
August 29, 2018
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.
October 30, 2017
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.
January 2, 2016
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."
August 27, 2015
The effects are well done, but sometimes they overwhelm the on-screen action.
August 13, 2015
It's got all the thrills and spills of an arcade classic and doesn't need a cheat code to make you laugh.
July 31, 2015
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]
July 24, 2015
If you can get past a knee-jerk reaction to Adam Sandler and Kevin James, Pixels can be a lot of fun.
July 24, 2015
It's an undeniably silly picture, but it's lovingly silly, which makes it go down a lot more smoothly than you'd expect.
July 24, 2015
Action, some raunchy humor in alien-attack sci-fi comedy.
July 24, 2015
Often fun and fanciful, though kids may not get the endless 1980s references.
