In 1980s the arcades were home from home for 13-year-olds Brenner and Cooper. Entering into the arcade game World Championships, Brenner looks set to win until he faces Eddie ‘The Fire Blaster’ who beats him on Brenner’s worst game – Donkey Kong. Years later and Brenner, a struggling computer software installer, must recall his game-playing skills when Cooper (now the President of the United States!) calls on his help. Declaring war on earth, Aliens have sent bigger, scarier versions of the classic arcade games to destroy the world. But Brenner can’t beat them alone and must bring his arch nemesis Eddie back to help him in this ridiculous, visually exciting, action-packed comedy.
Visually peerless example of Hollywood coming to terms with computers, in which programmer Kevin Flynn gets sucked into a game.
