Great Film overall
Good concept, poorly executed.
A movie that not only functions as a solid scarefest but a razor-sharp satire.
It’s not bad or unwatchable but despite the amplitude of the spectacle, the end result is underwhelming.
This is a very great movie. The visual effects are great, the soundtrack is pretty much amazing and the 80's references work perfectly. Yes, this is not the book and the changes are obvious. The book is far better, but Spielberg worked hard to produce a fair adaptation and deliver a good movie. It's certainly funnier if you get the whole references to the 80's.
Fist time to wright a review on this page.
Watched this movie once it came out on digital down load. After watching this movie I'm sad that I didn't watch this in the theatre. The kids and I love this move and have watched it many times already. Great movie and I see something new every time.
I must say that i absplutely enjoyed this film- it was interesting, amd posed the important question of how far people will go to escape reality, and how important ot is- i was captivated, enjoyed all of the references to other fipms, games and nerdisms, and found it interesting. I dock a point from what i would otherwose score for some items of the film i did not particularly enjoy, but tje film was good
This film is garbage. I remember seeing the trailer and thought it looked quite cringey. A work colleague mentioned he'd read the book and it was quite good. So I gave the book a go and really enjoyed it. While it was a little cringey in places it was a good book. So I then quite looked forward to film. This film takes the overarching theme and throws all that's good out of the window. I was so disappointed to find so many great moments from the book totally abandoned. Such a wasted opportunity. What we end up with is a super generic, weak attempt. The film felt rushed and totally lacking of substance. Every now and then they throw something in that happens in the book totally out of context just so it has something from the book. The end was terrible. It throws in concepts that totally ruin the world and physics of real world/vr interaction. Seems like it's made by someone who has never played a computer game. How did Ernest Cline agree to this!?
