Ready Player One is really a must see for the year 2018.

It’s a great film that everyone will love. It has so many themes: action, fantasy/sci-fi, romance, and comedy.

From filmmaker Steven Spielberg comes the science fiction action adventure “Ready Player One,” based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name, which has become a worldwide phenomenon.

The film is set in 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 (Mark Rylance). 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.

An unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.

Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) is one of Halliday’s biggest fans in the world and knows everything about his life what he liked, he watched, read, and enjoyed to do.

This is good for him given that the contest for the Easter Egg hunt requires that you know the creator well enough to solve his puzzles and obtain three keys that will win you the prize of Halliday’s share of the company money which is a huge amount of money and become the new owner of the Oasis.

But Wade is not the only one after the egg, everyone around the world who has access to the Oasis is hunting it as well. They are knowns as gunters which is “egg” and “hunters” together. Some hunt the egg to gain the money to get of of their bad lives, given in this time everyone are living in “stacks” which are just trailer homes stacked on top of each other. The world is low on resources, so life is hard and Oasis is the only escape from all the disaster.

There is also another company IOI (Innovative Online Industries) who are selfish and just want to win for their own greaty needs. The players that are with them are called “sixers” because they don’t have character name, but numbers which always starts with six. All they want is control over Oasis in order to charge people access to a free virtual world.

To achieve his goal of finding the Easter Egg, Wade has to face the challenges of the riddles and having to fight the other player and IOI. He’ll need the help of his friends Ache (Lena Waithe), Art3mist (Olivia Cooke), Daito (Win Morisaki), and Sho (Philip Zhao).

This film will want you to watch it over and over; it one of the best movies I have ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot of movies.
