Dec’s review published on Letterboxd:
The keys aren't just laying around under a rock somewhere. I suppose you could say they're invisible, hidden in a dark room that's at the centre of a maze, that's located somewhere up here.
Family wanted to watch this, first viewing for them, they enjoyed it. I love the book, love the film, it has some of the most flawless VFX I’ve ever seen. I thought Spielberg delivered his best blockbuster since Tintin, the changes from the book were great, the three challenges I love, the third is very poetic. Tye Sheridan and Olivia Cooke are brilliant. It’s probably a 3 or a 4, the themes are a bit on the nose but I enjoyed this a lot more than others, it has a lot of heart & soul, and I thought it was really well made so it’s a 5.
Fun fact: Ready Player Two has started development.
