Adam Sandler’s latest movie Pixels, which stars a number of iconic video game characters that we are all familiar with, has failed to impress movie critics. The movie, which opens on Friday, only has a score of 26 on online review aggregator Metacritic. The most brutal review comes from Portland Oregonian which you can read below. To balance things out, the New Orleans Times says that “Pixels is a slice of pure, frivolous entertainment that doesn’t try to overreach.” It’s probably best to decide for yourself and you can catch it at your local cinema on Friday.
“There are legitimate excuses for going to see Pixels. Losing a bet, perhaps. Having a loved one held for ransom. Maybe a serious blow to the head. But none of those (except maybe the last) would allow you watch and actually enjoy the latest cinematic leavings of Adam Sandler.”
