Ready Player One: By The Numbers...
Epic sci-fi action adventure and exhilarating story of friendship, hope and coming of age, delivered at breakneck speed with the scope, heart and pure imagination of Steven Spielberg.
Worlds at stake powering the film’s adventure: a chaotic urban dystopia crushed by environmental and economic collapse; and the hyper-stylized, seemingly limitless VR utopia where people across the globe escape their lives in 2045.
Keys (copper, jade & crystal) at the end of a seemingly impossible three-part quest to unlock an Easter egg Halliday buried deep in the OASIS before his death and challenged its entire population to find in his digital last will and testament – a game within a game that grips the world, with Halliday’s half-trillion-dollar fortune and full ownership of the OASIS as its prize.
Iconic rides among the many spotted crashing through a hyper-stylized New York in the film’s trailer – with Parzival’s tricked-out DeLorean, Art3mis on Kaneda’s bike from Akira, and Aech at the wheel of the monster truck Bigfoot in a virtual deathrace with such vehicular legends as the Mad Max Interceptor, Speed Racer’s Mach 5, the 1959 Plymouth Fury Christine, the A-Team van, Pole Position’s F1 racer and the 1966 Batmobile.
Years after making his unforgettable debut in Brad Bird’s eponymous animated classic, the Iron Giant returns to the big screen to stand with the High Five in the epic final battle of Ready Player One.
Years of collaboration between Spielberg and Industrial Light & Magic, the iconic effects house created in 1975 by his friend George Lucas – beginning with Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981 and continuing through Ready Player One.

Due to time constraints however, sacrifices had to be made. The alternate puzzles created to accommodate the new plotline were well designed though and helped move the story along well enough.
The only thing I would say is that the hero's journey aspect of the story was even greater in the book as the main character started at level 1, and wasn't even able to travel off the newbie planet, which also served as an online education planet where all schoolkids went. This gave the impression of even greater challenges to overcome.
Nonetheless, a good yarn for those who haven't read the book.
If it wasn't for the 'God light'/cinematography you wouldn't know this was a Spielberg film.
Good fun, but fast food all the way. Don't expect any nutrients here...
Some of the scenes almost take your breathe away, and a clever story line with characters you cared about stopped it from becoming an image fest with no content which can happen with some heavily computerised films.
Great soundtrack too, humorous and at times emotional, I would highly recommend this film to anyone of any age with even a slight knowledge of gaming.
And as with most of Spielberg’s films there is always a morale tale in there too, and this film was no exception without becoming mawkish. Will definitely watch it again, to pick up on some of the clever little references I may have missed first time.
To summarise, give it a watch it just might surprise you 😊
The story and picture glide seamlessly between real and VR worlds and the viewer gets sucked into layers of rich material e.g. 80s, Shining, games (modern complex to simple retro - obvious candidates missing i.e. Space Invaders, Pac man, Donkey Kong, Mario, etc.) and soundtrack.
Themes are simple i.e. the quest, good-v-evil, corporate–v-small guy with a love story threaded through, but it is the texture of the film and its escapism that is the star. The film dips its toe into a pool of social consequences that has a resonance about connectivity (games, technology) as a “resource” and lives affected by debt (obsession with latest model/upgrades and contracts).
There are good female roles (Samantha/Artemis, Aitch) and crew (High Five). And where Tye Sheridan (Wade/Parzival) brings vulnerability and strength, Ben Mendelsohn (Sorrento) and IOI provide relentlessness (sixers) and slippery façade of corporation. (T.J. Miller (i-R0k) – he funny man). I’ll flog myself later for saying this, but I found Mark Rylance (Academy Award winner and go-to actor for sensitive/complex characters) that his portrayal of socially awkward Halliday was unconvincing.
This is a film for kids of all ages (even older ones that never grew up) and being a kid/teenager in the 70s/80s was the place to be – the laughability is that back then VR seemed the stuff of dreams and yet here we are.
Everyday I pass the IOI loyalty centre (a disguised Citypoint, London) and it reminds me to keep an eye on the door to escape, so ‘til then I’ll bide my time watching the DVD and will read the book (on Christmas list).
If the RPO game comes out, I wonder what Steven Spielberg’s avatar would be?
In the meantime, my TV might have an accident with an elbow nudge and I’ll get pizza menu on standby for Ready Player Two …
