    I thought this movie was bad. Just really bad. I seem to be an anomaly for the most part. My girlfriend and I thought it was terrible and seriously can’t seem to understand how any can enjoy it

    Thank you for this review, Chris. I’ve been kind of wanting to see this movie because I absolutely loved Get Out and Jordan Peele. I’ll definitely give this one a try.

    The one thing I dislike about this movie is something that happens in 99% of all horror movies; an asshole family member doesn't believe the protagonist and makes light of the fear the protagonist is experiencing. Adelaide is clearly traumatized and it costs her a lot to confide her trauma in her husband, and he responds to it with typical horror movie douchery. It's just as annoying as horror movie characters usually making incredibly stupid decisions to get the plot going. Apart from that the movie was great.

    There is also alot of non sensical things in this film which reviewers I've watched haven't touched upon. Prob why I don't love the horror genre.

    In order for the major theme to work you have be told the twist and it has to be explicit...
    Because the twist happened...but you couldn't even tell the difference between one of the other.
    That's the's a reflection of the American Dream

    I dont get the positive critic behind this movie. Acting Was good.... thats it. Am I the only one thinking this was indeed a cringe fest?! This movie tried so hard to be impactful and scary with some kind of deep meaning and twist... and it failed, on each of these levels. It not scary at all, made almost no sense and was simply boring and stupid.
    And I enjoyed Get Out a lot, but this is 2/10 Peace of work.
    And why, just why cant Hollywood stop with the stupid ass political agenda... SJW are ruining our whole culture. Stop it!

    It surprises me to see that you, as a critic and fan of the psychological horror genre has found this movie somehow 'brilliant'. A movie where your nemesis has to detail a nonsensical evil plan for minutes in front of you won't ever ne good. Terrible movie, 2/10

    One of the worst pieces of garbage made in the last decade, at least. From acting to plot holes, to enforced poorly expressed propaganda, to stupid comedic relief. This movie had everything bad a movie could ever have. Most overhyped, trash-''woke'' pseudo-horror made in the recent horror movie history.

    I liked the directing and there were good horror moments, but the whole “tethered” idea just didn’t work for me, it made no real sense and honestly looked pretty silly when they were showing them in flashbacks, plus there were a lot of plot inconsistencies and dumb decisions made by characters, wasn’t terrible just not great like critics have said

    If dogshit was a genre, this would be 100% match. Hulu and Netflix are gonna have a category named Asscheeks and this film is going to be listed repeatedly. Idk what the fuck everyone else was watching but somebody hired people to leave good reviews and Rotten Tomatoes is exactly that. Rotten ass vegetables. How in the fuck do you give this film 93%? This movie was catastrophic in immeasurable volumes.

    I loved this movie so much until they went too far with the origin of the body doubles. They sort of went back to the roots of the idea of a 'doppelganger' as an inherently terrifying circumstance and a source of existential horror ("if they're me, who am I?") that it seems like most horror movies merrily breeze past in pursuit of including more cheap jump scares.
    First there were only dopplegangers of the family. This made it feel personal to the main characters, which carried through to the excellent twist ending.
    Then there were dopplegangers of others in the small town. Which... makes sense, I suppose? It loses a bit of that intimidating specificity, but explaining the origin of mysterious horror movie monsters is always very difficult to do in a satisfying way. I could totally have seen this as a 'town with a terrible secret' sort of thing. They went into the underground people having to mime their overworld counterparts *to a fault*, which leads to a number of logistical issues as to how they could possibly have survived as long as they had in these tunnels. But, eh, I've seen worse horror movie origins.
    And then literally the entire United States was pulled into the conspiracy and now literally nothing about that made any sense or seemed remotely feasible. It was nuking the origin of your horror movie monster from orbit for the sake of a weak allegory. That's the only real complaint I will make against this movie, but it's a pretty glaring issue.
    And then the amazing twist ending made me want to forget all about that nonsense. I would absolutely have accepted "evil government testing their newest pseudomystical mind-control scheme against this small town before abandoning it as a lost cause" as a good enough origin. There's still plenty of room for allegory in there if done right.

    ... still, I loved everything else about this movie, so, I still rate it highly. It just makes the weird ham-fisted allegory feel that much worse.

    The longer I think about this movie, the more apparent the flaws are. At first I was at a 8/10 but its a very light 6 now.
    This movie could've been amazing, but there are way too many plotholes!
    Why didn't the government kill the tethered (solves/negates the entire film)?
    Why are the "abandoned" tunnels filled with tethered, along with the rabbits, lights running and all?
    Why didn't Adelaide prepare for the invasion?
    Why did Adelaide become the chosen one and call the shots just because she could "dance?"
    Why are they copying Hands Across America just because it was on a shirt?
    What the hell are the clones going to do after they kill their originals, stay hand in hand until they die of starvation?
    Why did all the clones take up fashion design and got red jumpers and golden scissors?
    *The movie explicitly chooses symbolism and social commentary for actual substance.* How can a movie WASTE A CLONE INVASION? At least I enjoyed Lupita's performance, along with others.

    That point about the ending twist is so fucking stupid. It's like people are advocating for a film's clear set-up to receive no pay-off, and that is not something that anyone should want.

      @Westside BRIM I thought some scenes were comical, BUT if you view the film as a whole in context with the big plot twist at the end, it puts the film in a whole different light. I thought it was overall good, but I understand in some scenes the director was not totally successful in getting the audience to buy into the story and suspend their disbelief.

      @Westside BRIM U saying it's purely a comedy? Was Get Out also just a comedy? Lot's of humor in that one too, but alot better put together imo. Horror/Thriller/Comedy?

  • tim driver

    I'm a bit of a traditionalist so I didn't really appreciate the attempt at humor in this movie which made it quite hard to take it seriously. You had to ask yourself is it a horror film or a comedy? The acting was good but aside from the regular conveniences it did also contain a lot of cliches and was predictable to say the least. 6/10
