Movie Review – Ready or Not (HBO)
A bride’s wedding night takes a sinister turn when her eccentric new in-laws force her to take part in a terrifying game.
Quirky, entertaining characters that may lack a little depth, but nonetheless keep our eyes on the screen.
A seemingly simple plot that gets a more complex and riveting over the course of the film.
Pretty good! No unnecessary flashbacks or boring subplots here, and each scene flowed pretty well into the next.
HBO is really ramping things up lately, I’ve gotta say. In the span of a few days I watched three movies that I really enjoyed. So when I heard that this new arrival to HBO was available to watch, I jumped right on it!
This film was a lot of fun. The premise is simple. Girl gets married unknowingly into a family that has a very strange quirk. You must play a game after getting married. If you draw hide and seek, well … you can figure that out for yourself.
Overall this was a solid movie.
The characters were fun. I liked the sillier ones and how they provided a little humor to the horror. It worked really well. The main character had a believable backstory, and she was funny in spots herself.
The plot was really simple, but it worked. Even when it got more complex over the course of the film, it was still executed well and wasn’t confusing in the least. Flow didn’t really suffer anywhere, and I was happy with the conclusion of this movie.
Overall, this was a really good watch, and I recommend it if you like horror with a little dash of comedy sprinkled in. Happy watching!
