Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Tonally Ready Player One is a bit of a mess. The humour doesn’t always work alongside the darker story undertones and the amount of swearing is very unusual for a Spielberg film. This all said – Ready Player One is visually stunning and as you’d expect the direction is first class, showing once again that Spielberg is still one of the best directors working today. The cast are generally good as well but personally I’m getting a little bored with Mark Rylance’s increasingly one note mumbling’s. But it’s the cameos you’ll remember – everything from the Iron Giant to the Delorean and a million more. Ultimately Ready Player One is a geeks paradise that’s good enough to paper over it’s cracks.
Best Bit: Cameos!
