its like Hollywood gave the book to a drunk screenwriter and told him to read half and replace the pivotal timeless key challenges with currently popular games and remove any journey of friendship and add a nonsense Insta romance.

If I had not read the book it would have been better. There were so many changes that I didn't love it. But it could stand on its own had I not had a different storyline in mind.

Trying not to wave the book- was- better- than- the- movie flag... it was entertaining, and I would've really like some of the really deep cuts the book had but understand this was made to be accessible to a wide audience. That being said, the loss ous the characters intelligence, how dire the world is, and how hard the quest really was... that it took serious amounts of time to find the keys... that should've been kept. Still worth the price of admission.

Was a big fan of the book and while the movie strays from the original source material, it still did a good job at capturing the same feel. Definitely a fun popcorn flick

Absolutely NOTHING like the book. Spielberg gutted this movie and filled it with cliche love stories that were empty, drawn out, and oh did I mention NOTHING LIKE THE BOOK. The end result? Neat CGI while I nearly fell asleep.

It's not the book, but it is a great movie. It can't follow the book too close or it'll be super long. The twists also make it fresh for book readers. I enjoyed it, and the visuals are top notch.

This movie is very, VERY loosely based on the book. If you're expecting something like the book, you will be upset. As a stand alone movie, it is average with amazing special effects. The movie plot is average. The cinematography and special effects are wonderful. Don't go in expecting the book in movie form and don't go in expecting anything inspiring or insightful, just fun and pretty to look at.

Fans of the book won't be let down, though there are large departures from the story. A whole movie set in the Oasis wouldn't be very exciting anyway. I'll definitely watch this again when it hits Blu-ray.

Ready Player One was different and very enjoyable than other current films. It was very original.

This movie attempted to fit too much story into too short a runtime. Would've been better as a two-parter. Plus it's just poorly structured on it's own without the source material. I wouldn't pay to see it.

Wasn’t shocked at how well blended the movie was until I got to the end and realized it was a Steven Spielberg production... I said “oh that’s why” ☺️ GREAT movie!

It misses the point to ask, as some have recently, whether he’s still able to have fun at the age and status he has attained. Sure he is. He must have had great fun making this immense Tinker Toy of a movie, but there’s a fundamental mismatch between artist and material.

Ready Player One has no obligation to be a rigorous intellectual exercise, even if it amounts to a wasted opportunity to explore who else might steer tech, and society, toward greater equity. But it doesn’t have to be so facile, either. Maybe next time the screenwriters shouldn’t set the difficulty mode to “easy.”

A rollicking adventure through worlds both bleak and fantastic, Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One makes big changes to the specifics and structure of Ernest Cline's best-selling novel but keeps the spirit and level-up thrills intact.
