Went to see it because it had an interesting plot and Adam Brody. Happy to say his role was surprising and was a great performance. Underrated actor. Samara Weavering was a great lead. All around fantastic and I hope it hits big.
It had the annoying cliche moments of the heroine constantly leaving behind possible weapons, but it was still great. Original story with an unexpected, yet great twist. I was left laughing and covering a gaping mouth. Would recommend.
Ready or Not revels in expectations—it’s a survival thriller, dark comedy, gross-out revenge splatterfest—but rarely exceeds them, treading well through each genre signifier, as suspenseful and funny and violent as any one of us could hope.
Ready has a fine time with its setting (the trappings of old money are much more appealing here than they were in Netflix's Murder Mystery), and Weaving is sharp enough to play things straight as the ensemble around her goes for the occasional laugh.
Although directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett do a good job executing tense suspense sequences, neither the satire nor the setup is particularly convincing. What we’re left with is some nifty cinematic gamesmanship which is not as politically astute as it thinks it is.
