Lazer Team Review - AVClub

AVClub: Nowadays, everybody wants to expand their empire. The Austin-based production company Rooster Teeth has achieved unprecedented success in the world of machinima, or films created using video-game environments. Its popular Red Vs. Blue shorts, launched in 2003 and still going strong, now constitute the longest-running web series of all time. But why stop there? Especially since having a loyal fan base makes diversification relatively easy. When Rooster Teeth announced plans to make its first theatrical feature, Lazer Team, and turned to Indiegogo to raise the cash, diehards immediately coughed up $2.4 million. Whether a broader audience will turn up for this goofy sci-fi comedy, starring a no-name (for the general public) ensemble that’s primarily done voice work in the past, remains an open question. But it does at least look like a real movie, albeit one with a script that’s been recycled from dozens of previous low-rent pictures about a group of scrappy underdogs who band together to save the world.

The story is too old to be commented.
