Ready Player One (2018)

STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

Verdict – 2/5

 

PROS –
1) Behind the neon lights, pop-culture references, and future gaming – this is a Huxley’s nightmare. A dystopian movie with dark undertones.
2) Prominent tributes include Back To The Future, a revisit to “Hotel Overlook” and Iron Giant returning for one more sacrifice.
3) I-R0k – Best character from the movie.

 

CONS –
1) Over-stretched and mediocre 3rd act.
2) Spielberg chooses another cliched plot to direct. This movie reminds us again that Hollywood has milked the 80s enough.No doubt the 80s was the most important decade for the technological advancements which we have today but now there’s clearly an over-kill.
