What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
John DeFore Play for the fortunes of a virtual oasis.
Karla Janse van Vuuren Virtuele spel bied ware vermaak.
Ilan Preskovsky Really, this is far from his best, but any film with even just a bit of that Steven Spielberg magic is well worth seeing – though do be sure to do so in glorious, unencumbered 2D. 3D is normally a colossal waste of time but it's genuinely disastrous here.
Tomatometer Ready Player One is a sweetly nostalgic thrill ride that neatly encapsulates Spielberg's strengths while adding another solidly engrossing adventure to his filmography.
