In the year 2045, on his death bed James Halliday, the creator of a wildly popular virtual reality utopia known as the OASIS, begins a hunt for his fortune and ownership of the whole VRMMO world with puzzles and riddles based on Halliday’s obsession with pop culture of decades past.

Movie Reviews: “Ready Player One

Movie Review: New Yorker

It is 2045, years after “the bandwidth riots,” and Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan), an orphan in his late teens, lives with his aunt Alice (Susan Lynch). What is it with aunts? Peter Parker has one. James has two before he finds the Giant Peach. I guess nephews and nieces feel semidetached, without the tug of close ties, and thus more eligible for adventure. Wade and Alice dwell in the Stacks, a shantytown of piled-up trailer homes in Columbus, Ohio.

What the wider society is like, what it labors at, and how it feeds itself are questions that never vex the film, although we do see pizzas being ferried by drone. All that most people, including Wade, want to do is strap on a headset, ditch their ponderous existence, and enter a virtual realm, known as the Oasis. It is wild, weightless, limitless, and devoid of genuine pain. Any resemblance to a heroin high, let alone an opioid epidemic, is entirely coincidental.

Movie Review: BuzzFeed News

 Ready Player One

Does Ready Player One know that it’s a dark story recounted with oblivious lightness, in the same way that someone might tell you what they think is a funny anecdote about a wild night out but that sounds more like a description of alcoholism? It’s fair to say that the source material, a best-selling 2011 novel written by Ernest Cline, does not.

The reference-packed book is devoid of any subtext that might make its geek fantasy, in which a young man saves the (virtual) day with his incredibly thorough knowledge of pop culture, go down less smoothly. But the new movie adaptation of Ready Player One, directed by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay Cline wrote with Zak Penn, shows occasional glimpses of self-awareness that feel like the equivalent of watching someone’s fixed smile slipping.

Movie Review: Detroit News

 Ready Player One

A gloriously geeky ode to the last 40 years of pop culture wrapped up in a thrilling old-school adventure tale, “Ready Player One” is tremendous fun, a just reward for spending way too much of your life camped out in front of your television.

Steven Speilberg directs this exuberant celebration of the movies, video games and hobbies several generations have grown up on, with a Gen-X sweet spot that hits squarely on ’70s kids raised on first-gen Atari games. Know the Easter Egg hidden in “Adventure?” Congratulations, this movie is exactly for you. But for those who just want to romp through an index of pop culture references from A (A-ha) to Z (Robert Zemeckis), “Ready Player One” is for you, as well.
