There are only so many clever gags the filmmakers can include before it becomes obvious they're trying to cover up holes of their own making.

I'm not moved by the gore or the slapstick humor used by those characters who celebrate the ritual of brutality. The narrative lacks intensity. [Full review in Spanish]

Shamelessly entertaining, but very stupid.

Another year, another handful of overhyped horror films that don't live up to their potential.

It presents a fascinating setup with a childhood game that turns into a deadly hunt, giving you a few good thrills and darkly-humorous moments along the way, but unfortunately Busick and Murphy's screenplay doesn't do quite enough with the premise.

[Samara Weaving] faces an uphill slog, hampered by a creaky plot, cookie-cutter supporting characters and plodding direction.
October 25, 2019
It's neither witty enough to be truly, viciously funny, nor sufficiently scary to cultivate the atmosphere of evil that might make it genuinely unnerving.
October 25, 2019
Even by its own humble standards the plot is poorly worked out (a few lame attempts at social commentary criticising the rich are feeble in the extreme) and the dialogue is wretched.

Think the Addams family, only less appealing.

Much blood is spilt and many quips are made as the absurdities pile up, although it never really adds up to all that much.

This horror comedy muffs both the humor and the drama.

If I ordered this movie at a restaurant, I'd send it back with a complaint that there's a little too much comedy in my horror.

The film's fatal flaw is that its creators clearly wanted to duplicate the formula behind the game-changing success of Get Out but lacked adequate imagination.

"-the makers of the killingly clumsy horror comedy "Ready or Not" aim to take all those games from Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, swap sexual for homicidal content."
August 28, 2019
A brilliant concept for satirizing the poison pill of dynastic wealth, though the kitschy, "honest to blog" tone holds it back.

Thin characters...thinner satire...maybe best to think of Ready or Not not as trolling us but as gifting us a mosh pit for primal-scream therapy.
August 27, 2019
...a disappointingly uninvolving misfire that surely would've worked better as a short...
August 24, 2019
Is this a spoof? The dialogue sounds like it was poorly translated from another language.
August 23, 2019
The movie flirts with big concepts and then flakes out.
August 23, 2019
With style and attitude to spare, the film nevertheless struggles to balance its comedic and suspenseful elements.
