Watch this if you liked: “Wreck-it Ralph”

The Good, the Bad and the Pixelated Saviour:

• The film is like "Wreck-it Ralph" meets "Ghostbusters" in an Adam Sandler-style disaster film.

• Fans of retro '80s games might enjoy the movie, but might also get turned off by the typical Adam Sandler's jokes that are unfortunately no longer working their magic.

• The movie has a really interesting premise, but some parts of the movie are not coherent.

• The only point that makes the movie worth watching is the beautiful visuals which is really a sight to see, and also the wonderful performance by Peter Dinklage.

• Also, the smart use of camera movements will make audience feel as though they are in the movie themselves.


Trivia:

• The creator of Pac-Man, Toru Iwatani, made a cameo appearance in the movie, but Denis Akiyama plays a fictionalized version of him because Iwatani cannot speak English.
