 9/10

Good movie with plenty of references to movies and games. Always makes me smile when I watch it.

This was a good movie. The story was a little scattered, didn't really tie in the real world to the gaming world. The clues to the movie didn't really make much sense, and the worlds they had to visit to find the keys didn't really fit. Didn't spend much time building up the "BAD GUY" in the movie. But it was full of action. I must say that I did enjoy watching it though. Well worth a one time watch. The movie is different and entertaining. At least for me it was.

Lots of CGI, the best part was the first 10 seconds in the "stacks" - 5 or 6 out of 10.

It's a watchable film with great effects, not bad storyline or cast.

Meh. I just couldn't get behind the main character. He seemed like a self absorbed brat. Parts of it were good.

This was a pretty cool movie, I will honestly say that from the previews it looked like it would be way better-I still liked & thought it was good. I would love to try a game like that, how cool would that be. smiley smiley

I remember how amazed my father was when he saw the graphics on the Star Wars arcade game. That's how I feel watching this movie. Some scenes have so much going on it's hard to keep up.

I've never felt so old as I did watching this movie. I'm going to go back to something simpler like Walking Dead.

Fun fact- Spielberg replaced some of the references to his work so it wouldn't seem egotistical. That's why you didn't see any ET or Indiana Jones in the fight at the end (would have been pretty cool to see ET throw fists though)

Absolutely brilliant Steven Spielberg film! The CGI was great, the plot and cast, superb. This kept me entertained the entire time and as a gamer, I appreciated it even more. I would recommend this to those who enjoy this genre and give it 5/5 stars!

A weak storytelling but a one-of-a-kind rendering of stunted youth, and a fascinating study of pop culture as a language / prison. will be the subject of grad school dissertations for decades. bad ones, probably. It didn’t really work for me as spectacle (something like Sword Art Online mines similar terrain more successfully), but i dug it as a knotted meta-commentary about our relationship to the things we create / the paralyzing nature of nostalgia. only Spielberg could have made this, and it's mostly interesting only *because* Spielberg actually did. Great special effects a good story little predictable good video game movie. smiley smiley

Classic Spielberg formula here. Designed to be liked. One missing key ingredient is a perfectly tailored score. I thought this was borderline irritating, poorly cast and virtually pointless. I mean if you're going to pay tribute to the eighties, you better come better than this. IJS.

I thought this was a great movie. I'll go out on a limb and say you either have to be a teenager, or be very old (like me) with a good memory for old movies to enjoy this. All the references to old scifi and horror movies made this a riot to watch. 9/10

Well because I am not into the games, I thought I wouldn't like this. It was okay (IMO) but I do not like watching any kind of animation type movies, so that part (and I know it was probably everyone elses favorite part,lol) I just didn't get into. What was humorous to me was watching my God son, and friends reaction to the movie lol. They rated it as the best movie they have seen this summer so far,lol! So just for entertainment reasons (and thanks to the uploaders) I give it a 5/5..

As an older viewer who does not game, I guess I would not be in the target audience. However, I enjoyed the film and found it entertaining. Just like a lot of US films lately, the moralistic girl points out the errors of the nihilistic chap and guides him towards a better more ethical life . Apart from that, u give it 3.75/5

I haven't read the book.... So I can't really make any comparisons or tell you if it's a great adaptation or not. But I love the movie. It's VERY fun and entertaining. Highly recommend it. Love all the geeky stuff, references and Easter eggs.

Definitely worth a check out. I give it a 7.7/10

Good movie, but not without its flaws. The villain was just too unbelievable. Big corporate guy who needs to be fed pop culture one minute knows how to take on an army of gamers on their turf the next. Guess pay to win was really big in the oasis. Can't get over how stupid all calls were. No way he'd be in charge. Love story was super ham fisted too. Also the technology was kinda confusing. You have people in the streets, on treadmills, and cables cool, but then the villain had a chair? How did he move? Ugh. Liked the awkwardness of the developer though. Also thought the cgi was well done and the switching between real life and the oasis.

The film finish exactly how I thought it would be after seeing the very first trailer.CGI fest with zero substance. The story progressed in the most stupid ways possible and the logic of this movie was so flawed.
At least Mecha Godzilla vs Gundam was done well, the rest not so much. The love story was laughably forced even more then the pop culture references.

After reading all the reviews on this I was really looking forward to seeing it,after half an hour I gave up.I didn't like it at all and I'd go as far as to say it's probably Speilbergs worst movie.

This was an aiight movie. My opinion was it was a little on the long side. I'm not really a video gamer. there was some funny parts and a decent story. Good family movie i guess. I watch the hdrip on vdsi from simonseyz. Audio was great video quality wasn't the best but very watchable. Thanks uploaders. To me this was worth a one time watch. I would give a 6.5 out of 10 using the BLAZE rating system. Acting was ok... i didn't really care for the animation. check it out and leave a comment, come out from the shadows!

I was having a bad day till I watched this .. I smiled all the way through it. It has been a really long time since I watched anything anywhere close to this good and I'm sure it will be equally as long, if ever, that I will ever watch anything close to this again.

This is officially on my desert island list. smiley

What did Black Panther have to do with this movie?? this movie along with BP was not that great to me and i watch both with the hype and w/o.the CGI was very good,i guess you have to be into playing video games to enjoy this movie and i am not, so i watched it because it seems like a very good movie and i like Steven Spielberg, for what it was worth it was ok,4 and a half/out five. now i am speaking about MY TASTE so don't everyone have a hissy fit because i don't agree with you or your comments!!

Loved this! I saw the ads and initially thought "Meh..." but decided to watch it whilst at a loose end and it turned out to be one of the best films I've seen in quite a while. It has everything; from scifi to humour, from pop culture references (visual, musical and verbal) to great CGI, from chase sequences to huge battles... the pace just builds and builds throughout and the real life action is sliced seamlessly alongside the virtual world action so it's like two stories running simultaneously towards a shared conclusion. Well worth the watch even if it's just for the gorgeous and, imho, underrated Olivia Cooke.

Ready Player One, was far more enjoyable than Black Panther, which was all hype, and not much substance. This movie had very little hype, but a lot more character.

Better than I had expected it to be and not a total waste of time either. Plus, it was a major motion picture that actually went beyond an hour and a half and even beyond the 2 hour mark, which used to be the standard! THAT I liked the most.
