The result is like the old videogames: they do not have a plausible narrative... and if they have some remarkable audiovisual effects (for the time), they do not offer a resolution... [Full review in Spanish]

Q-bert terrified out of his mind, watches a child play The Last of Us, as Adam Sandler quips "is this the most violent game you have ever seen". Of course, the writers then ruin that goodwill built up by having him piss blocks

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.

It would be so easy to lambast Pixels as a cravenly lazy, creatively defunct, possible Ponzi scheme in which audience dollars are siphoned into Adam Sandler's private jet fund.

In its favor, I will grant that it is inoffensive: you could take your kids to it, which isn't true of most of Sandler's oeuvre. But really, your kids deserve better.

For those of us whose childhood was spent on these games, this comedy will rank high on nostalgia. But that's about it, because this is an Adam Sandler movie after all.

We all knew it could be a particularly bad movie but no one ever expected it to become such a flat and poorly made film so dependent on the tired humor of an exhausted Adam Sandler. [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.

It's a neat idea for a parody disaster film but it's wholly lost in this melange of underwritten characters and awful dialogue.
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.

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.
