Ready Player OneThe film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Ready Player One"
Christian Science MonitorMarch 30, 2018
Spielberg wants us to drop the techno-gadgets and join hands, but it's the VR world that really juices him. He's the ultimate fanboy making a movie about the need to move beyond being a fan.
Globe and MailMarch 30, 2018
So much of Ready Player One is assembled from the detritus of our past that it is less a film and more an overstuffed cultural recycling bin.
Detroit NewsMarch 30, 2018
A blast of pure childlike amusement.
San Diego ReaderMarch 29, 2018
Life in the OASIS is exciting and wondrous to behold through your avatar's oversized anime eyes, but it doesn't mean much without some real-world stakes, and that's where the film stumbles, badly.
Wall Street JournalMarch 29, 2018
Haptics weren't needed to feel the emotional pull of his best films; they aimed for the heart and hit much more often than they missed. "Ready Player One" aims for the adrenal gland.

Many of the book's references to Spielberg's cultural artifacts have been stripped away, but he imbibes the movie with flashes of colour and heart that rekindle a sense of wonderment that will transport many viewers back to their childhoods.

Ready Player One is more like a seven-course banquet made up entirely of Pixie Stix and Pop Rocks-you certainly get a rush from it for a little while but once the initial effect, there is not much of anything else going for it but overindulgence.

It may be impossible to separate Ready Player One from its references, and without the Easter eggs, inside jokes, and endless homages, Ready Player One doesn't offer much that is unique to itself.
Arkansas Democrat-GazetteMarch 30, 2018
To quote from yet another famous '80s reference, go ahead and gag me with a spoon.
Common Sense MediaMarch 30, 2018
Intense virtual reality adventure will dazzle '80s fans.

I'm sure that some will be more receptive to the avalanche of nostalgia than others... but I don't think one can deny the [film's] comment on the place of popular culture in our lives... [Full review in Spanish]

Busy and hectic but not cohesive, a game that's nothing more than a game.
