You are the hero in six action scenes from six generic movies in Attack of the Movies 3D.
The six levels are: Insect Invasion, Cosmic Combat, Into the Emperor’s Tomb, Robot Rebellion, Deep Sea Danger, and Graveyard Gunfight.
In each level, you take on enemies in a rail shooter; as you move along a predetermined path, monsters pop into view and you blast them before they reduce your life bar down to zero. At the end of each level is a boss fight where you take on a huge creature - by shooting it with your gun several dozen times.
But the creativity in this game is seriously lacking; each level has a set of monsters, but I found myself shooting the same creatures far too often and you only get three guns (a pistol, semi-automatic rifle, fully automatic machine gun). I would’ve liked to see a shot gun, magnum bullets, grenade launcher, laser pistol/rifles, a goo cannon and a crossbow. But nope, you are stuck with only three guns.
The level design isn’t that great either; there’s no real story being told in any of them, there’s no secrets to uncover in any of the levels, and this is one of a few games where players can actually beat it in less than one hour. They’re charging us $30 for this?
Which bring us to the reason why they made the game: the 3D. Problem is, if you buy the game, then you are stuck with those glasses that probably won’t be used in any other Wii game - and a game that gets bland very quickly
If you rent the game, you won’t get the 3D glasses, so you are left out of that experience.
So, the best thing to do about Attack of the Movies 3D is not to try it at all. SKIP IT.

I had recently played this game and was excited about shooting the action movies. The first movie you start with is invasion of the bugs which is pretty cool but you lose lifes quickly. The bugs start firing green gobs of goo at you which drains your life quickly. The graphics on this game are pretty good although the bug movie looks like a b movie. I like how you are able to use the wii remote and either the b button or a button to shoot so the controls are really good. The downfalls I have to this game are you cant choose all the movies to start the game and even on easy mode the game is still hard. This is a fun game to play as a rental but I would not recommend buying this game there are definetly better shooter games out there for wii.
