Lazer Team (2015)
Lazer Team Plot Synopsis: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?
Lazer Team (2015) Review
Lazer Team (2015) is an American sci-fi action-comedy film that was mostly funded through an Indiegogo campaign that raised over $2.4 million in one month. Co-writer Matt Hullum (Red vs. Blue: Reconstruction (2008), Red vs. Blue: Season 10 (2012), The Best Red vs. Blue. Ever. Of All Time (2012)) did a wonderful job producing and directing Lazer Team at Spiderwood Studios, Austin, Texas, USA. Lazer Team is rated PG-13 because it contains sexual content/references, bad language, violence, and teenagers partying and smoking. It is hard to imagine that it can possibly be real - that maybe there is an alien world out there that is protecting us, and we do not even know it, hmmm, maybe, could it possibly be?
Lazer Team revolves around four people in a small town that discovers an alien crash site that houses a battle suit resulting in the four people soon realizing that the planets safety lies in their hands. The four of them screwed up and eventually break the suit that divided into four pieces that attached itself to the four of them. The alien equipment somehow is genetically bound to them, so they decide to work together with the government whom they have been running from to save humanity. Each alien device/piece is meant for one person, so the team has to train to fight the fight of their lives against their enemy. It was a really great movie that showed us how an alien race leaves an alien power armor battle suit for the humans to use. A little information about the characters.

Lazer Team was an entertaining joyride that I will watch again with friends and guests. It excelled many of my expectations, and I will be looking out for more movies from Matt Hullman. The special effects were top notch as well as the acting, editing, and sound. The cinematographer and makeup department did an awesome adding their touches to this phenomenal movie. There was action, comedy, suspense, thrills, excitement, tension, great dialogue, and violence that made the movie into something that I will watch again.
