Horrible plot + cheesy jokes + predictable scenes + not scary + boring = Ready or Not.

Right next to the son of the mask, this movie knocks it out of the park as a contender for worst movie of all time.

At the very basic level, this is a fun entertaining movie and if you like horror comedies, it's worth watching.

It is a fun and entertaining movie to watch despite its clichés, inconsistencies, and "heavy" dialogues.

By the time they got to the third maid's death, I was ready to leave.

One actually pities this talented actors who deserve a better way to make a living, As Alex's brother, David, Adam Brody has his moments but is rather bland.

Ready or Not is a highly entertaining film.

-ly predictable as expected.

It's equal parts thrilling, violent, funny, and well acted.

It's too cliche and predictable!!!

A horrible, waste of time and money .

Awesome Performance From The Stunning Ms Samara Weaving!

The sole enjoyable characters were the malignant aunt and Andie McDowell (who remains lovely and believable no matter the vehicle.

This came off a a suspenseful , thriller , dark comedy?

The film brings a good amount of blood and violence which will satisfy those looking for an entertaining thriller.

I enjoyed it much more than Get Out and Halloween last year.

The music was also gripping and helped with the setup for most jumpscares.

Over all it's great movie and its worth the watch

Despite the unique exploration of a strange premise, it has a pretty generic and even formulaic development, which is a bit of a letdown.

It was a really good movie I enjoyed it!

Samara Weaving is very engaging as the lead.

The story was decently presented by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett kept it interesting and very gripping.

These are thrilling and they felt more intense because the writers wrote a character that seems a little deeper than other scream queens of the recent past.

After twenty-five minutes of listening to Dora breaking the Fourth Wall, like an adolescent poor's man version of Deadpool, I walked out of the theater and bought a ticket to R.

Funny and thrilling.

Overall very entertaining movie I could watch this over and over without getting bored.

Very suspenseful and fun to watch throughout!

For the most part, the movie is well-tied together with a compelling sprinkle of twists and delicious sordidness.

It was entertaining I guess.

Worst movie I have seen in a long time .

Enjoyable horror .

The ending was too predictable!!!

It delivers a fun and entertaining 90-minute hide-and-seek game like we've never seen before.

Everyone shows their distinct characters from behaviour to costume that they are so entertaining to watch similar to that feeling when you get dozens of characters to choose from in a game.

The movie is very well paced and suspenseful it made me on the edge at all times.

Overall I found it an entertaining 90 minutes and one of the better movies of this genre I've seen in years.

Worth watching though weather in theaters or at home.

Save your money .

Worst movie ever .

If you are a pretentious movie goer and need realistic build up to what I thought was a great ending then you are probably going to be with the many that have rated this a 1 or a 2.

The writers could've done SO much more, and literally chose to do the least thrilling ending of them all.

The movie is never atmospheric, intense or scary enough to be a great horror movie.

It was fun to watch up until the ending then it gets weird and definitely unexpected.

With an engaging cast and concept, it's a movie that will keep the audience hooked and perhaps make them laugh at the odd sense of comedy and justice that they brought in this film.

Some stuff was kind of predictable to me.

I left the theater feeling empty...

Overall, the adventure of Ready Or Not is a fun little project that is campy, quirky, and still thrilling in the world of horror films.

The film is never clever, surprising or vibrant enough to be an entertaining comedy movie.

Completely unexpected!!

It was boring, crude, unenjoyable and without any sense of humor.

But throw in some cheesy script and direction which does make it entertaining.

Dark dark humor and super entertaining!

Was it entertaining for what it was.? Yes!

Perhaps that's the fault of the direction, which is so crucial in translating a good premise into a kinetic, absorbing, and visually compelling film.

Much of the killing is accidental, nothing happens due to skill.

Very entertaining with its dark humor.

One of the year's most highly entertaining films.

The most entertaining horror comedy ive seen in a long time .

The action appears in short, boring bursts, and there's no visual wow factor.

Very eh, don't waste your money/time.

Loved the movie, my biggest complaint is I feel that the middle dragged for a while, apart from that the movie was great.

While it may be a bit gory in places, I certainly laughed more than I jumped, samara weaving is good in the main role and the supporting cast do a good job I wouldn't call it a horror film though, it never really makes you jump at all, but in my opinion it is more of a really dark comedy but I enjoyed it nonetheless, there is a lot of blood and some really funny bits, all in all it was a pleasant way to spend an hour and half

Super hilarious and thrilling.

Crazy, suspenseful and weird!

This movie would have fallen under the boring same ol dull "empowered women" kicking butt nonsense filling up 90% of movie time these days if it wasn't for its' idiosyncrasies and an endearing performance by Samara Weaving.

The movie is too predictable throughout most of it's run.

This movie bored the hell out of me.

This movie is really pathetic, don't waste your money!

Fairly quickly turns into a nonstop chase that begins to bore.

An entertaining comedy horror flick.

Someone in my row walked out shortly before the end; I should have walked out long before.

Thrilling and Funny .

Don't waste your money.

After a while I wanted to walk out it was so boring.

Well done, well cast and entertaining story even if some of it was somewhat predictable.

This movie was so bad, I wanted to leave.

Ready Or Not's thriller is the selling point, for the jump scares are few, the creep factor is low, and there are seldom any moments that had me on the edge of my seat.

Some bad things about the movie was that some of the characters were pushed in and the ending was pretty dull.

It moved quickly and had me on the edge of my seat the entire time.

After a very weak summer of unimaginative big budget releases (Hobbs & Shaw, etc.), Ready Or Not is very solid and entertaining time at the movies.

The story has an original concept, and also a bit unpredictable.

That was unexpected .

Totally entertaining!.

I really enjoyed it and would buy it on Blu-Ray.

The movie was interesting and entertaining to watch.

My only problem with it, is that it can be predictable sometimes and its horror is pretty generic.

Good set up, but eventually predictable.

What I got was a very dry dark comedy that just basically gives up at the end (and wastes kills).

Cheezy, tacky and a waste of time.

I went into this movie expecting a boring, gory slasher with an uninspired plot.

It's a phenomenal blend of suspenseful horror, relieving comedic bits, and over-the-top madness that knows better than to take itself too seriously.

Samara Weaving is stunning and her acting is superb.

I almost walked out the theater!!!

I thought this was a pretty entertaining horror comedy.

Wealth has a way of making the wealthy unpredictable, self-centered, and wicked.

Because Ready or Not is surely one of the most thrilling experiences of this year.

A very entertaining 1.5 hour film that kept me engaged the whole way through and the theater viewers laughing with the witty jokes.

I highly recommend it.

It's a fast-paced hide-and-seek game, filled with suspenseful scenes and genuinely funny moments.

Ready or Not seems like a cheesy horror movie when you first hear of it but when you go to actually see it, you are in for a badass horror/comedy movie that will leave you on the edge of your seat every single second.

Well worth it to see in the theatre, but renting it at home will probably be nearly as enjoyable.

There were too many predictable moments, like that 'goat pit' or whatever they called it that scene was too obvious where it was going.

Enjoyable story, nail biting thriller (hide and seek).

It manages to be both thrilling and got a lot of laughs.

It's definitely worth watching like a new age thriller.

Rather than just being a straight up slasher flick gore fest it was more reminiscent of films like Cabin in the Woods or Tucker and Dale vs Evil, taking the normal tropes and flipping them on their head in fun and exciting ways.

I called it absurd because while the writer or director could actually make it into a pure thrilling terror with fear, much blood, and evil motive behind all the sinister actions conducted in this hunger games style hide-and-seek, they decided to execute it in a more comedic style.

One of the worst movies I've seen lately!

One of the year's most highly entertaining films (and by all means stay for the WTF end!

Aside from some minor character issues, this film has a nice flow throughout, with increasing adrenaline and tension.

An absolute blast of a film with fun and interesting characters, fantastic performances, and a crazy plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Has to be one of the worst movies I've seen in a few years...

Granted, the ending is, well, unexpected in the way that it is executed, but its final result is still very predictable.

I really enjoyed it.

The film is funny, scary, gory, and thrilling from the beginning to the mind-blowing ending.

Riveting from start to end.

Exciting start of the events then descending down hill.

I don't know if it was the one jack and coke that I had that was affecting my excitement for this movie, but the whole movie was so predictable, cliche, and corny.

Was it maybe a little predictable?

I thought it was an entertaining film and the dark humor mixed with gore was satisfying.

Actually enjoyed it .

new concept of writing, totally worth watching!

Ready or Not should be ignored since it's neither a gripping horror film nor a clever comedy.

The movie features a few intense action scenes that make you root for the desperate lead character.

"Endgame") it's great to see a fun, low-budget flick that is original and entertaining.

and definitely nowhere near as suspenseful as the second half.

It delivers plenty of thrilling moments and some cheesy humor.
