I admit –I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Ready Player One, but I did have high hopes for it. My sister read the book, and every ten seconds she was coming to me with excited revelations. I could only hope I liked it. However, I loved it. If you like retro/classic things, video games, and virtual reality, you’ll love Ready Player One.
One of the first things I noticed was the balance of story and action. The time between fighting and action allowed the story to progress at a nice pace while letting the viewer get to know the characters. The latter I appreciated, because when something happened to a character, I actually cared for once. When a character acted out in a certain way, I understood the motive. Lastly, I don’t usually comment on this, but the CG scenes (especially within the oasis) weren’t too dizzying. Which I enjoyed since a lot of the movie takes place there.
I absolutely adored Ready Player One and I’d definitely recommend watching it.
Thank for reading.
