It’s probably a sequel that came out of the blue or outer space, the follow up to Red Rooster’s Lazer Team.
The 2015 original had a goofy charm about it but this feels like a step too far.
The jokes that worked then don’t seem to translate now and feel desperate and bland. Given the distinct lack of depth added to all the characters Lazer Team doesn’t add the growth to make this a fun low budget sci fi franchise.
The villains from the original are also recycled making this caper feel too familiar.
Whereas Lazer Team gave nods to Ghostbusters it’s sequel has more in common with the bland reboot from a few years ago.
Lazer Team 2 is available now on YouTube Red.
