Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
As Scott Lang balances being both a Super Hero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.
In the year 2045, the real world is a harsh place. The only time Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) truly feels alive is when he escapes to the OASIS, an immersive virtual universe where most of humanity spends their days. In the OASIS, you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone-the only limits are your own imagination. The OASIS was created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance), who left his immense fortune and total control of the Oasis to the winner of a three-part contest he designed to find a worthy heir. When Wade conquers the first challenge of the reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends-aka the High Five-are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS.Written by
Any time Sorrento or his avatar wear a tie in the movie, there is an inscription on that tie that says "NSIOI". "NS" stands for "Nolan Sorrento" and IOI is his company. See more »
When the Cataclyst goes off, everyone dies and then we see a glimpse of the big scoreboard being updated. Number 3 on the scoreboard is SORRENTO with two keys and 124,000 points, even though he should have been zeroed-out when Art3mis blew him up along with Mecha-Godzilla. However, the explanation is clearly implied, since we know that Sorrento never actually won any key - he had a bunch of his Sixers do the work and then took the keys and points from them, either by ordering or killing them. He must have done it again after being zeroed-out, so he would be the one to open the final door and get the egg the moment another Sixer got the third key. This explanation is further evidenced by the fact that numbers 4 and 5 on the board are Sixers and they have exactly the same score as Sorrento, implying that they are simply copying each other.

Film's New Horizon, Unification of Online Game, Cinema, and Cartoon's Virtual World
This film actually explored the new frontier of the most popular media's unified world.
Spielberg is truly revolutionary in terms of innovation of story telling. He unified the cartoon, online game, attraction of amusement park and live action film into this cutting edge feature film.
The story is simple enough that When the creator of a virtual reality world called the OASIS dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune.
Avatars are unique and everyone can be idealised even though you are not confident of your looks. I was impressed with Spielberg's homage to the true Japanese international star Toshiro Mifune.
Although Daito is played by the ordinary TV talent Win Morisaki who belongs to the notorious talent agency Stardust Promotion Group, the avatar and its name Toshiro are something made me quite familiar with. Only the post WW 2 era could make Mifune such a decent personality.
If these real characters of avatars are more ordinary, it is more appreciated and close to the real world's audiences.
In this film, we can almost see all major genres and entertainment devices. Such as Godzilla, King Kong, The Shining, Gundom, Robocop and Alien etc. I know there are only US-Japan characters in this film due to its main targeted film market is US-Japan. As Hegel said, this is a synthesis of cinematic story telling. Steven Spielberg was and still is the most advanced and authoritative film director.
I cannot imagine Taiwanese governmental and political creation of Ang Lee stuff is something worth than Spielberg's true Hollywood values. Japanese audiences don't even recognise who Ang Lee is even after Taiwanese government and Chinese Nationalist Party helped to purchase the awards from the world. He cannot do any Hollywood blockbuster and its basic quality without Hollywood crew and casts. He should make films under pure local Taiwanese film conditions with pure local crew and casts. That appears his true quality. And Lee did not even improve or solve any serious industrial issues for local film workers.
Anyway we don't enjoy any Ang Lee stuff no matter it is Made in Taiwan or Made in USA until today however Spielberg is our legend. We love his films! Arrogant Ang Lee brother have actual racial bias against Japanese people.
Japanese people love Spielberg's films as true Hollywood films! However Japanese still don't enjoy any Ang Lee stuff as something worth to see.
We actually see this film as cutting edge film work at present.
