Excitement I had for the screen presence of so many classic video game characters was very short-lived - none play a meaningful role, and only a couple ever speak.
But the most damning thing for me was the sheer amount of time spent in the kart racing game Sugar Rush - a bit of a Mario Kart parody. Everything in this world is candy-related, and to spend a whole hour of the film in there literally made me feel like I had been gorging on caramel.
It's fairly enjoyable for kids, but there is very little in the way of fun for adults, and shamefully, hardcore gamers. A missed opportunity.

5/10
