        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?

I've been a big Rooster Teeth fan for years & was incredibly excited for this movie. I watched it in theaters the day it premiered in January, and because I was so hyped up about it, I laughed at nearly everything, loved the references, and had an incredible viewing experience. While even then I didn't consider it an amazing movie, I still thought it was really really good because I was so proud of the company. But I watched it again recently, and I realized it's not as great as I thought it was.

It has many funny jokes, but sometimes the humor comes off as juvenile & forced, which is somewhat disappointing considering Rooster Teeth have written very witty and clever comedies before. The characters in the movie are likable, but are also easily forgettable & are not people who the audience truly care for. Their development is not written well & they are filled with character stereotypes (dumb redneckdorky smart guy, popular egotistic jock who's secretly self-conscious, preppy blonde teen, etc). The only character in the film that isn't a walking cliché is Herman (Colton Dunn). Although this movie is a comedy, it does have a small amount of moments that I think were supposed to be serious (SPOILER such as Adam's death), but were executed poorly & were incredibly weak emotionally. The acting is decent & the special effects are actually pretty good(other than the aliens), especially for a low-budget movie.

Overall (whether you are an RT fan or not), it's an enjoyable movie, but not one that you will want to see again and again.
