I love the premise – Donkey Kong reaping carnage with barrels? Yay! – but the tone of this trailer is all over the place. Pixels n eeds to be a hell of a lot funnier if it’s going to sustain an entire film.
I adore the concept ( Pac- Man and Donkey
Kong are games from my youth) but the trailer is more slapstick and Adam Sandler- y than I was expecting. Still, it’s got Peter Dinklage in it.
Adam Sandler should be given the occasional chance, just so he can squander it again and we can all move on. Thus
Pixels, a silly movie about voxels with cringeworthy lines. No!
Great concept, but shame the trailer isn’t the strongest. With Chris Columbus at the helm I’ve got high hopes for a smarter line of humour than Adam Sandler inanely naming characters.
It’s a concept that just looks like So Much Fun! The casting seems to be a mix of “amazing!” and “okay…” so let’s hope Chris Columbus can make it all work – this is looking good.
