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.

Bored games: the clumsy horror comedy pitches its blood-and-guts flakiness too absurdly high
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.
August 23, 2019
So beyond not developing its characters or being original, "Ready or Not" is never scary. It's never smart. It's never good.
August 23, 2019
Unfortunately, it is a brutal disappointment, with a delicious premise that turns out to be a bland, gore-soaked mess rather than the macabre satirical feast I expected.
August 23, 2019
Ready or Not ultimately doesn't know what it wants to be.
August 22, 2019
Ready or Not fires up classic genre tropes, then takes pleasure in poking fun at itself. Still, the film takes more pleasure than it gives.
August 22, 2019
As Ready or Not rolls on, it all becomes much too much of everything-a bit of playful, clever wrestling that, after turning into a full-out brawl, ends messily and ignominiously.
August 22, 2019
This film feels stuck between its filmmakers' two competing and contrasting goals...it's just so unfocused and scatter-brained tonally that its best attributes are left hidden from the audience.
August 21, 2019
"Ready or Not" attempts to critique the super rich and the anxieties of marriage but winds up drowning in its own pool of blood.
August 21, 2019
The style of acting would, at a sporting event, merely be called shouting.
August 21, 2019
This cheeky, brutal horror-thriller ends up closely resembling the rich family at its center: a tad empty and soulless.
August 21, 2019
This may satisfy viewers wanting a tongue-in-cheek gorefest with a smidgen of social commentary, but it lacks the edge and subtlety of 'Get Out,' its obvious model.
August 20, 2019
Ready or Not revels in expectations, but rarely exceeds them, treading well through each genre signifier, as suspenseful and funny and violent as any one of us could hope.
