this movie has a lot of references from our childhood to our teenage years even or adulthood, the character, the games, the culture of gaming, sci-fi as a whole all blended into a plot. Not to mention the CGI here is top tier.
It counts on all the usual tropes to carry it through, but for these tropes to succeed they actually have to be set up properly and meaningfully, which the movie fails to do.

I am probably tacking on a few extra points for the sheer nerdiness of it all and the full blown hommage to the 80s. I feel like they had fun writing this film, it's a decent story with a lot of fun ideas on what the future could look like.

Sorry nothing to do with the movie movie was good but there's some really bad experience attached to this movie and all i remember is that when i think of this movie so idk.
In my opinion it is not for everyone, you have to like video games and especially retro ones, because much of the film is to lead the viewer to nostalgia for many great games of the past.

Runs a little thin on substance and a little heavy on CGI, but an easy passive watch for nerds and 80s fans.
I saw this after reading the book and was very disappointed. But then again isn't that always the case :-) anyway don't watch it to expect a 1:1 of the book.
Really good sci-fi. I mean, girl, I would love to live in that fuckin world.
this movie is really under rated in all aspects. if u love gaming and graphics this is much watch
