Ultraviolent satire is forgettable but fun for horror fans.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Ready or Not is a comedy-horror movie with extremely graphic violence. Characters are dispatched in many ways (bludgeoned, shot, crushed) and die with spurting, pooling blood and gurgling in agony and terror -- all of which the movie plays for laughs. Many deaths are presented as comic or unimportant: Some characters die just after doing something that the movie views as bad, for example, and others who've had no lines are dispatched bloodily, after which survivors argue about who has to clean up the "mess." Small children participate in the violence; some are killed in over-the-top bloody scenes. Dead bodies are shown at length, including a long look at a severed head during a comic argument. Several characters smoke prominently, including a scene in which the main character smokes calmly in front of an apocalyptic scene. Other characters drink and act sloppy and hostile, snort white powder, and take unnamed pills and seem manic and out of it. Sex is confined to a mention of a couple's "boneathon" and a scene in which they kiss fully clothed and one tells the other to "take off your pants" (he doesn't). Frequent language includes "f--k," "motherf----r," "bitch," "a--hole," and more. This movie obviously intends to make points about power and wealth, but the messages are muddled. Samara Weaving stars.
