Well, at least they tried...

I hadn't even heard anything about "Max Reload and the Nether Blasters" prior to getting to sit down and watching this 2020 movie from Scott Conditt and Jeremy Tremp. So I didn't know what I should be expecting from the movie, aside from it looking like something from the 1980s based on the cover/poster. Then I saw that Greg Grunberg, Wil Wheaton, Martin Kove and Lin Shaye were on the cast list, and I must admit that sparked a bit of hope for the movie. Personally, I can't claim to have an ounce of interest in Kevin Smith, so there was no hype for me there. And now that I have just finished watching movie, I must admit that I am left with a sensation of "was that really it?" in the wake of the movie. Sure, there was a really nice 1980s vibe to the movie, and lots of interesting and fun references and Easter eggs throughout the movie. But ultimately the movie was just too mundane and generic - not to mention predictable. The storyline was straight forward, but a bit too much so. Because it felt like directors Scott Conditt and Jeremy Tremp were just running on auto-pilot mode. There were no surprises along the course of the story as it unfolded on the screen. The acting in the movie was adequate, but the lack of an overly interesting or captivating storyline was sort of serving as a ball and chain around the actors and actresses' performances. All in all, "Max Reload and the Nether Blasters" turned out to be a less than mediocre movie that mostly aim at gamers and hardcore pop culture nerds, while leaving less entertainment value to the rest of us mainstream audience members. My rating of "Max Reload and the Nether Blasters" is a mere four out of ten stars. While I managed to sit through it, it wasn't a particularly outstanding or memorable movie experience for me. And this is by no means a movie that I will be returning to watch again, even though I am a child of the 1980s myself.

A Sci-Fi explosion of video gaming, nostalgia and humor!!!

Max Reload takes you on a nostalgic adventure into virtual reality pieced together with exciting retro 8-bit animation scenes. Its a story of courage ,friendship and video games loaded with 80s humor that won't be lost with millenials. For fans of Ready Player One, Jumanji, and Lord of the Rings.

A Lame Attempt at Funny

Tongue in cheek movies like these where filmmakers are winking at the audience can be a lot fun. The best example being the classic "Galaxy Quest," or the "Jumanji" movies. But it's a tough thing to pull off. You need a really smart script, the right mix of good actors who can play everything deadly serious and half decent production values. If you have the first two going for you, you can forgive cheesy production values but Max Reload fails on the crucial first two elements. When the writing isn't smart and the actors play "funny" nothing funny at all so all you're left with is cheesiness. Also, you know you're in trouble when Greg Grunberg and his ever-expanding girth are one of the name actors in any film. His very presence assures the mediocrity will rule the day.
