About the Movie

When aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth, using the games like PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede and Space Invaders as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, ’80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler) to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Pixels is devoid of cynicism and it has a cheerfully cheesy vibe, and it's the kind of movie you'll forget about a week after seeing it. – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, Aug 14, 2015

Rotten: This is a film in which a viewer can be forgiven for rooting for the old video game icons to annihilate humanity. God help us if the best savior we can muster is Sandler. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Jul 26, 2015

Rotten: Nostalgia is a wonder and a cheat. The right touchstone can make the most discerning movie-goer forgive a film as lazy as Pixels. Almost. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Jul 30, 2015

Rotten: Welcome to the End of the World, Adam Sandler-style. – Adam Graham, Detroit News, Jul 28, 2015

I'm a gamer, and this is a gaming movie.

Ever since I heard about this movie I really wanted to see it in theaters, and I'm glad I saw it IN A THEATER. Even if your not a gamer I think you would be amazed at some of the special effects. I mean seriously, there really good. And even though the movie had some crude pretty crude jokes and scenes that don't really make since, it was enjoyable.

P.S. Stay for the song in the credits.

If you played video games at the mall arcade in the 80’s, you will probably enjoy it!
