Happy to be in the minority here.
Us was awful.
The scariest part was when I heard it was 2 hours long.
The funnest part was when the cinema played the Halloween theme before the film started.
I laughed, a couple times.
But ultimately this was just nonsense. Bonkers. All over the place. And I was supposed to care? It wasn’t scary & it wasn’t tense, job failed. If the job was for it to just be different then well done.
I can imagine Jordan Peele loving every word he put on the page.
I did think Get Out was overrated. I quite liked the first 80% where it was just great storytelling before it just got too weird. Us is 80% weird and 20% decent storytelling.
I wanted something more hard hitting. I left the cinema disappointed, but each to their own.
