*****

Directed by Chris Columbus

Though a classic concept and full of visual energy of displaying a unique figure of pixels could had been a milestone of a Movie, but Director Chris Columbus invested his creativity more on perfect special effects, full-size action and a inspiring craftsmanship which could have worked otherwise if the script and the characterization would had been meticulous enough to be engaging and significant to appeal the Genre of ‘save the earth from aliens’ kind of film which really fails on getting the interest rolling from first frame.

The film is based on a very innovative concept of the famous arcade games of 80’s as the extraterrestrials misinterpreting video-feeds as a declaration of war, and invading Earth using technology inspired by such more games.

Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie "The Fire Blaster" Plant (Peter Dinklage) all of them being genius in playing the video games since their childhoods are now prearranged to save the world by fighting live to defeat the aliens, as they have been doing this thousands of times at the video arcades.

The big money you pay for the ticket is only a value when you hear the association of the world famous song in background "We Will Rock You" by Queen of his 1977 album News of the World.
