Let me just say that if someone asks me if they should see this movie, my answer would be NOPE!
This is not just a bad film, but it is profoundly boring from beginning to end. While director Jordan Peele distinguished himself with Get Out (2016) and Us (2019), this movie is a complete mess.
Two siblings, played by Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer, run a horse ranch in California. They are soon haunted by an alien spaceship. It is not an exaggeration to say that this defines the entire film.
To add to the view’s agony, Mr. Kaluuya’s skills as demonstrated in Get Out, Judas and the Black Messiah (2021), Queen and Slim (2019) and Black Panther (2018) are lost here. His one-dimensional performance leaves you wondering, “What the hell were you thinking, Mr. Peele”?
Unfortunately, the plot was as banal as it was repetitive. The only interesting character was Kiki Palmer, who played Kaluuya’s sister. She helped take your mind off the 2 hour, 10 minutes you wasted in the theater.
To be honest, I suspected that something was wrong with this film. The previews and reviews told you nothing about the movie’s substance. You’ll learn the reason ——- it had none!
This singular review has wholly negated any value any of your other reviews carry. This review shows the author lacks any ability to read into depth or even enjoy surface-level novelties like a flying saucer vomiting blood onto a house, an objectively cool concept & shot. Go back to watching Midnight Run or whatever you think Films should be, you absolute putz
