Eliminators ★★★½

I’m probably giving this too much credit for my own ignorance but I’m still wrapping my head around the revelation that there was ever anything like this — a production that had *some* money to spend but no ambitions other than the exact “yes and”/“sure why not” vibe of kids crafting an imaginary adventure as they go. The bad version of this hodgepodge is something like that “Kung Fury” short, or Ready Player One... but this somehow feels guileless enough not to repel in the same way? “Could have been written by 8 year olds” should probably never be a virtue, but there's reminding people of stuff they liked when they were 8 with just enough irony, and then there's this, which... maybe it was just written by 8 year old and it got made, who’s to say.
