Lazer Team 2 (2018)
User ReviewsReview this title
The movie moves forward at a good pace, slowing down only a few times for some jokes. Some jokes had me laughing and others fell flat, but not everything can be hilarious.
Burnie Burns, Gavin Free, Michael Jones, Colton Dunn, Kirk Johnson and Nichole Bloom were all serviceable in their roles and were good to watch on-screen together.
The story was straightforward enough but mostly feels like a long skit rather than a movie, but is still enjoyable overall.
The visuals were B-grade level campiness, serviceable to the plot and fit in with the overall tone of the film. It made for some fun scenes and helped make a bigger bang of an ending.
It's from the Rooster Teeth company, a massive online company of content creators, so there are a lot of easter eggs and cameos for the fans. You don't need to be up to date with all of their online content though as this movie, like its predecessor, stands alone.
Overall, it was campy, goofy, sci-fi fun, and I'd be down with a third movie, especially if they take it to where they said they would in the end-credits scene. And judging by where this film was set based on the end-credits of the first one, it's a high possibility if they get the funding for it. I had a good time watching it. It's nothing amazing but hey, if you've got some time to kill, why not watch this? 5/10 average fun.
This movie is just stupid.
It is amazing to me that with virtually the entire cast being extremely funny in real life, maybe one joke in this movie actually lands. It almost seems like they were aiming it at a younger audience than their content is normally directed at.
There is also a terrible scene involving an alien toilet that I've very surprised made the final cut.
On a positive note, the shiny parts like special effects were actually pretty good.
I've watched Rooster Teeth content for 15 years, and I will continue to do so, but this might be the worst thing they have ever made.
