Brilliant! All the way around, it is very hard to believe this is a first time director. A must see.
Up for several Oscars, this is a must watch. A fresh story, no gratuitous violence, a psychological thriller that you should probably not watch too close to bedtime. Exploring inter-racial relations this will give you a jolt that you will not forget any time soon.
Awesome. This movie is so good. I applaud the actors, especially "Georgina". She was able to cry and smile, laugh at the same time. She accurately portrayed the horror she was in also. The story was original and kept my attention throughout. Bravo.
This is more funny than scary, though the “horror” aspects (and social commentary) are all there. The “scares” are mostly of the type that make you jump, the laugh (maybe a little nervously); the special feature interviews highlight the similarity between “getting a laugh” and “getting a scare” in movie – both are about perfect timing. The true “horror” is in the concept: re-enslavement of Black people by high-tech and brainwashing. Disguised as a horror movie, this film is really a look at attitudes about racism and stereotypes, and is likely to start some serious discussions.
I'm not sure what's more repulsive--the mindless adulation of this film or the film itself.
An actually quite creepy, subtly-building horror/suspense story, reminiscent of the Stepford Wives. Occasional comic relief is well-placed and, while funny, also adds to the creepiness. I didn't expect this one twist near the end.
People who feel uncomfortable or isolated in social situations or among new people might especially identify with the ominous feeling.
We were not impressed. The acting was poor, the jokes minimal and point lost so many times, the twist at the end was expected though unknown- I would say it was the bottom of the barrel.
Until shortly before the end everything you see is not what it appears to be. A+++++
Wow! Great development of the dialog on racial roles in our society. Early on in the movie I commented that the situation was the "Stepford wives of black people".
Did not like the unnecessary cussing but neither did the character. The TSA employee makes this warped minded movie funny. Thank goodness for the TSA.
Wow! I should have watched this one sooner. It kept me guessing up until the very end! Better than the horror elements or comedy elements, I enjoyed the indirect social commentary that this movie provided. It clearly, multiple times throughout, portrayed the alarming problem of continuing racism/conflict toward black people in this country even though all the while, white America continues consuming and appropriating black culture in any way possible. This movie takes that appropriation to an EXTREME and it's very eerie to watch the truth unfold.
1/2 because I did watch. I did not see why everyone was so hyped up about. It was very predictable at some scenes. I would not watch this movie again nor would I recommend it to a friend to watch.
Get Out is a terrifying movie that just keeps getting better with an enjoyable storyline and frightening thrills.
Keep an open mind and let the movie develop into an interesting story, better than I expected!
I really don't see what all the hype is about...i found the movie terribly disappointing and absurd. It was also predictable at times: I could tell where the plot was going from time to time almost from the beginning. Barring the ludicrous science behind the film, the entire story feels like the cathartic relief of a BLM filmmaker and as such comes off as preachy and self serving. if this is Black militants cinematic revenge on Whitey for racism it fails in many respects, because it comes off as amateurish and fails to make any sort of real point other than the moral of "don't go into strange lands with strange White Women." If you check out the deleted scenes you will get confirmation that the director had a political bias from one (out of many excruciatingly similar ending scenes) scene where the comic relief makes a Trump joke that hits as successfully as you'd expect. (For the record i am no Trump supporter.) If you want to score social justice points with your libtard friends, by all means gush all over this film. Or you can be like me: rent it, loathe it, regret renting it, and review it appropriately. 1 star for originality, -4 stars for everything else.
I knew it would be good, but I didnt know it would be this good! You're missing out if you don't watch this one.
Well written, original, smart, well acted, with an awesome ending!
I wasn't as bother by the racism in the movie as I thought I would be and in fact, I appreciated it because it opened up room for dialog with my friends after we watched it.
It was a horror/comedy movie that didn't feed into the "Black people in horror movies" stereotype as much as some horror movies have in the past as well as present times.
I found it very difficult to understand what the acclaim was for. Poorly done and in-your-face obvious racial commentary.
Thank God Armond White Ruined their "100% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes score" honestly, this movie was hyped up on pure media and Activists. Now, let's see...is it scary? No. Is it a thriller? Kinda. Is it overrated? To the maximum! Is the movie itself beautiful? Yes, the visuals in this movie was fantastic. It wasn't cheap but very fancy and beautiful with the setting and visuals. Now, again why is this in the horror section? I have no idea.
Great movie..... the undertones of race are subtle and well-done. It's scary, but not gory which makes it a great watch! I would recommend!
