Obvious but unconventional popcorn caper

The ordinary made quirky with an unexpected sense of satisfaction driven forward by its own brand of blundering drollery. A flippant movie with an aim to entertain without losing its charm. Undoubtedly, most know the tropes and motifs seen in many other comparably equivalent pictures. The mixed reviews, strong dislikes, and pour ratings might be unfair and generally misguiding for those wanting to see a decent flick with friends, as this movie isn't supposed to be anything other than what it is: a fun story not meant to take itself seriously at all. It navigated around the pitfalls in attempting to be something that it could never achieve because this type of story could only work as presented. Of course, you know how the story will unfold and what will happen, but the axiomatic homage to earlier movies is manifest to maintain the slapstick, tongue-in- cheek, and farcical. By no means is this a cerebral foray into the genre; however, it is a humour nugget. Indeed, it is a guilty pleasure and a delightful escapade: apparent and entirely conspicuous, but nonetheless amusing, succeeding— surprisingly so—in satiating the need for candid guileless flippancy —it couldn't work any other way. True, the premise is simple and straightforward; there isn't anything new in the plot, characters, and their inevitable goofy crescendo; although, the clichés work and invoke classic 80s' frivolity, permitting the silliness and comedic cringe fairly well without hammering the point too much. Typecasts and stereotypes have their mandatory purpose here, it's why it works, which does not undermine the essential puerile joy of watching a movie like this. Indisputably, this isn't thespianism, high art, or genre busting storytelling, rather it is a good old potboiler of sorts. Formulaic? Yes. Imitative? Yes. Corny and routine … well, that's its purpose, which earns it the peculiar praise of owning its flavour of idiosyncratic fun. There are better movies, of course, but don't allow that to detract from the cinematic inevitability of a movie that—if you give it a change—can be pleasantly amusing and let you smile. This is most definitely worth the watch if only for the x-ray vision and press conference scenes.

Game effort can't overcome lack of talent

Plot; Four men are accidentally bonded with pieces from a hi-tech alien suit of armor and find themselves Earth's only hope against a threat from outer space.

Crowdfunded sci-fi slacker comedy is amiable enough, but despite game (if not exactly good) performances and commendable production values for its budget, most of the gags and jokes fall flatter than a 13th century globe. It rallies a bit in the third act, but it's not enough to lift it above mediocre.

If you liked the Adam Sandler movie Pixels from a few years ago, you may like Lazer Team as well. Just less.

An Enjoyable Movie if You're Not Expecting Oscar Worthy Material

For their first movie, it's actually very good. The cinematography is better than expected, and the writing is actually funny and clever even though it's a tired idea. Not the most original of all topics, but its still quite fun to watch. So the big downfall is the acting. The acting isn't anything to call home for, but it's much better than most B or C level films. They probably would've done better if they went outside of the company, but I understand the loyalty. If you're a fan of Roosterteeth it would probably be better since you'll see all of the people you already know. I was neither disappointed nor blown away. It was exactly what I was expecting. If you go into the movie just having fun and not criticizing it too deeply, it'll be a worthwhile movie. Overall, it was entertaining but not the best film I've ever seen.I would recommend it to someone who wants to watch a funny, lighthearted movie, but definitely not to a critic or someone expecting a masterpiece.
