Hide and seek

The premise of “Ready or not” is pretty straightforward. It is just a wild game of “hide and seek,” and when they found you, they are trying to kill you.

Yes, this game is twisted.

And yes, I had a great time watching this movie. Not only was it dangerous, but it was also funny.

Not everyone has to play this deadly game. Every new member has to play a game before they become officially part of the “Le Domas” family. That does not mean they have to play “Hide and seek.” A card distributor decides which game you get. Only the “hide and seek” game is a deadly one.

Ready or not, here we come

3 …. 2 …. 1 …. GO!

Once the game has started, the family begins hunting with antique weapons. They can only use weapons at their disposal in a grand room. It’s part of the rules.

The entire cast embraces have their caricature-ish roles that it makes the film so much more entertaining. You had a hilarious scene with one son-in-law who had to check a YouTube video to use his crossbow.

The most interesting character was, without a doubt, Daniel (Adam Brody). He was torn between his family values and his sensibilities.  It’s the only guy, I was carving for more screen time.

The hunt itself is damn entertaining. You want Grace to get away ASAP, but at the same time, you wish she takes her revenge on the family.  The third part of the movie will surprise you, it did to me, and in a good way!


You will never get bored while watching “Ready or Not.”  The movie is messed up in an excellent funny, horrible way!
