''Ah, Space Chimps. Who wouldn't want to see a movie about monkeys exploring space? I mean, imagine the hilarity that would ensue when one monkey decided to throw poo at another in zero gravity...or not. Seriously though, Space Chimps is a rather lackluster kid's film that takes a while to get going and isn't accessible to all audiences. It takes a gimmick and runs with it, getting only mildly better as it goes along, but then again this review isn't for the movie, it's for the game.
Yes folks, once again we're looking at a kid's movie released simultaneously with a game of the same name. The characters of Ham and Luna are here as well as everyone else, including the lead villain and support characters. Granted you can only use the two stars in this title and everyone else is simply relegated to appearing in poorly implemented clips from the movie. The game follows the story of the film somewhat closely but if you haven't seen the picture you'll have no idea what's going on in all honesty. Why are these monkeys here? What's the motivation of the villain? Which monkey is who again? These are all questions you'll have if you had never seen the movie but probably the biggest question is, "what's the point of it all?"
