Game of Your Life is Walmart and PG’s newest movie. The story is about-
When industrious high school gamer Zach Taylor lands a prized scholarship to the prestigious Digital Institute of Game Design (DIGD), his future breaks wide open. The opportunity to study under gaming legend Marcus Bentton and alongside the country’s most creative minds will certainly propel him into a successful career as a video game designer. That is, if he can pass the infamous freshman project that eliminates more than half of the class within the first three months.
Paired with brilliant yet socially awkward teammates Phillip and Donald and Sara a determined leader. However, when problems at Zach’s home arise he makes a choice that will affect not only himself, but also his teammates.
Everything comes to a breaking point when Zach’s team threatens to remove him from the group and the deceptive truth behind a project comes to light. With the guidance of Professor Abbie Lambert, Zach must make a decision that not only affects his future, but the lives and livelihoods of the people around him as well.
We thought that the story line was good, but it was a little hard to follow. And while we LOVE Family Movie Night this was our least favorite of the movies.
The story was all over the place and at times it didn’t make sense. We didn’t like that it wasn’t as family oriented as some of their other movies.
My older kids enjoyed seeing Nathan Kress (Freddie from iCarly) in this movie and we thought that he did a AMAZING job with his role in this movie.
The story was serious, but it also had some great family-friendly humor thrown in. Phillip and Donald were hilarious and everyone loved them.
You may like this movie, but you may not. It’s up to you to decide! 🙂 We can’t wait to see what else Walmart and P & G comes up with! We love their movies even though this one was a dud for us.
