    ★½

    A goofy comedy where Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad save the world from alien invaders by beating them at 1980ish type coin-op video game come to life aliens.

    Did I mention that these 4 are the best of the best at the early games?

    It was fun seeing the games come to life, but it got old pretty quickly.

    This was a strictly an Adam Sandler vehicle where is the hero.

    Michelle Monaghan helps the guys.…

I loved the Bryan Ferry song that ran at the end of the credits, "Is Your Love Strong Enough". I originally heard that in Legend and it is a fantastic song.

    A zombie outbreak has caused Las Vegas to be encircled with a wall and quarantined.

    Years later the government decides to nuke Vegas, but Dave Bautista is tasked to sneak in and steal 200 million in locked Casino vault.

    Hiroyuki Sanada is a cameo, Garret Dillahunt, and Omari Hardwick are some of the supporting crew.

    Decent EFX albeit a bit cartoony at times.

    The 1st 10 minutes were better than the rest of the movie which came in at 2…
