About as exciting as an actual Chuck E. Cheese...

Definitely not worth the eight-year wait. The runtime is excessive, with most of it being spent on ridiculous family drama, the horror elements are laughable, and the jumpscares among the worst I have seen in recent years. Josh Hutcherson tries his best to save this train wreck but can only do so much, given the lousy script. He also happens to be the only one in the whole movie to give a proper performance. The child actors are horrible, and the rest of the cast ranges from dull (Lail) to cartoonish (Lillard). None of this would have mattered if the film had just fully gone down the "campy" path. Instead, it tries to be both a full-fledged horror flick, as well as a funny family comedy, which - surprise - doesn't work out in the slightest. The potential was there, but the studio's desire to appeal to the broadest audience possible prevented it from ever being reached. At least the animatronics looked good, even if they ended up being weirdly underutilized.

samoan is right, just watch Willy's Wonderland again instead.

They had SO MUCH lore to draw upon. SO MUCH fan made content to take inspiration from. And THIS is the best they could come up with?

45 minutes in, only 2 words came to mind to describe this movie...Not Good. Not very scary, has some cheap jump scares that are not effective, and a plot that has nothing to do with the games in any way other than the main character is a security guard that works at Freddy's and the robots come to life. The acting is meh, the subplots are boring and even though the movie takes very little time to get to the best parts it is just boring. Willy's Wonderland is such a better movie and basically is what this movie is trying to be, yes I know the irony. The dialogue is terrible and the way the characters behave is not realistic. For example, spoiler. I don't see how anyone could have read the script and thought, yes this is going to be a great movie, I tots want in. So many plot holes. If the movie had been funny or effective jump scars, I could have forgiven the plot holes. But honestly jump scares don't work just because you make a loud noise and show a random image. You have to build up the tension and then when the audience feels safe, do the jump scare. Of this movie please go back and watch some horror films like Exorcist 3, Event Horizon, or a few movies off this list: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls076172156/ and learn what makes a good jump scare. Also, the [spoilers] little kid becomes friends and plays with the monsters and isn't scared [/spoilers] trope is getting really old and is unrealistic. It works in some movies but not all. While I get why in this movie they are doing that, it really makes the [spoliers]evil robots not scary [/spoilers] I really wanted this movie to be good and enjoy it, especially after Willy's Wonderland did a great job with the concept. But I guess what did I expect when the movie is based on a game with very little plot and the trailer looked terrible?

My child says that FNAF story and lore was well presented. So I trust him and say the same. Generally usual thriller-horror, not great but not bad either. Liked Elizabeth Lail as Vanessa tho.
