Storyline

After thousands of years of thinking we are alone in the universe we decode a message (in the 60s) telling us we are not alone, and that the universe is a dangerous place and that we are going to be attacked. Luckily, the coded message came from a friendly alien race that fathered and protected us over the years. And now they are giving us the tools to fight back (in the form of power armor). But the delivery service takes a long time, and during those loooong decades waiting for that cargo ship to arrive with their one power suit, they choose a champion of earth to train to wear the suit and defend the earth! Then the ship finally arrives... Only to get shot down by 4 morons who play with the suit and ultimately get one piece each stuck to them. Now they need to work with the government to train these 4 morons with individual pieces attached to them. Will they save the day or will they stand around contemplating life? Written by Matt Silver

Trivia

The appearance of Ed from the band Barenaked Ladies as a news anchor is a reference to the music video of "Odds Are," which was also produced by Rooster Teeth. In the video, he plays a part of a news team alongside his band members as the apocalypse happens around the world. Also in this music video are a numerous amount of Rooster Teeth employees who also appeared in the movie, i.e. Gus Sorola, Burnie Burns, and Blaine Gibson. See more »

Goofs

When Zach contacts Mindy after getting part of the suit, the dialogue is edited so that when the shot of a speaking character is on the screen of either the laptop or the tablet, it sounds like it comes out of said object. However, there are some shots where they are not on the screen of the objects but still have altered audio. This mistake is only in the PG-13 cut, the unrated director's cut fixes this issue.

Flat comedy - annoying characters
3 February 2016 | by timo-reichert-93See all my reviews

When I first saw the poster and the IMDb rating of 7 - I was impressed and couldn't wait to watch the movie. However, I'm really disappointed that the hype couldn't deliver.

Some people argue that the story of "lazer team" could have been written by a child. But this doesn't have to be a bad thing. I found the plot to be interesting. Only the execution was poorly done. Why?

First of all - the characters are boring and annoying. I understand that comedies kind of live from stereotypical over exaggerated persona. But this was too much.

Do you knows this feeling when you're watching a bad horror movie and you think to yourself:"No, don't go there. You'll be killed. No, dude - don't go there.Oh, he's dead..."

"Lazer Team" is similar to that. Very predictable, flat jokes, boring character development. If this were made by a Youtube channel and only aired on Youtube - I wouldn't complain. But as a real movie - "Lazer Team" is just not good enough.
