Pixels (12A)

Action, Comedy, Sci-Fi

When aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth in the form of the video games.

The critical consensus

There’s a certain thrill to seeing humans face off against Frogger. If only as much care had been put into the living characters as the pixelated ones.

Ultimately the silly revenge-of-the-nerds scenario is never developed in ways that might make it truly engaging, and cameos from the likes of Serena Williams and Martha Stewart merely underline the random, oddball nature of the whole endeavour.

Run as fast as you can from this sci-fi comedy about arcade-game addicts who must defend Earth against space invaders.

Strangely misconceived movie isn't a patch on Columbus' best work.

Game over, man. Game over.
