It's 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse, but the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday. When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger

I love science fiction movies. I thought it was as enjoyable as the Star War movies when they came out. I am not a video game player.

Fantastic movie, I love the fact that they push the idea of disconnecting from the game to remember to live life outside of the world of fantasy.

The visual effects is rather unpleasant, especially the racing part, not pretty, not enjoyable, it is way too fast, too much light, it can cause headache. The plot isn’t great as well, as it is all over the place.

This is one of two movies I can think of which are better than their corresponding book (the other example is "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children"), and it's for the same reason in both cases - one of the best filmmakers in Hollywood history, adapting the promising-but-flawed first novel of a brand-new author. The radical degree to which the story is changed for cinematic purposes makes it barely recognizable, but if taken on its own merits, it is fairly excellent, with most of its mild failings coming from the same Easter-egg overload that makes it awesome the rest of the time. Eager to see it again.

None of that old Spielberg magic.

This movie was a pleasant surprise - (**I have not read the book so don't know how it compares!) Even for a non-gamer like myself I found it quite entertaining. It is an interesting story centering around virtual reality in the future (that I really hope the world is not like that 30 years from now!) with lots of throw-backs (music / movies etc) that the non-millennials will get. Recommended for 12 and up.

I haven’t read the book yet, but the movie was good. Anyone who likes video games will probably enjoy it.

It's decent if you haven't read the book, a disappointment otherwise.

Many quotes in IMDb including this cutie (Thanks to the contributors):

Parzival: Some people can read War and Peace and come away thinking it's a simple adventure story...
Art3mis: Others can read the ingredients on a chewing gum wrapper and unlock the secrets of the universe.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: re-creation of the horror film the shinning. includes a literal flood of blood, ax attacks, frightening/gross zombies. Some weird naked witch lady who is extremely creepy.

1% of the Brilliant Book is used. The Greatest mystery is why the book's author, Ernest Cline, helped savage it into the deranged and mutilated screenplay? Why was he complicit in Speilberg making a live action Wreck It Ralph / Goonies mashup that would INFURIATE the real Fans in the theater? I had to stop myself leaving the Theater multiple times, because I viewed it with friends. Such a Disappointment. Why write a Ready Player 2, only to be butchered into flashy garbage? Maybe he learned his lesson, or will once incensed Hardcore fans with Gunter tattoos rain down fusillades of stink bombs upon the traitorous Author's noggin, come his next book tour. Would have worked better as a limited series run on a well-moneyed streaming or cable channel. For Shame!!!
