Review By Raj-Bitu Kang
So, I was quite excited to watch this movie because firstly, its directed by the same director as Get Out and secondly, the trailer looked a little freaky 😬.
It starts off well; you’re interested, your intrigued, the background music adds to your curiosity and you are slightly on the edge of your seat when the “horror” begins to kick in .
Now I use the term “horror” loosely because it really isn’t that scary 🙄. A little jumpy perhaps but, it does not compare to Get Out. Whilst the comedy is good, there was probably too much of it which again makes the movie lose its scare factor.
The acting is good and the performances of the dopplegangers are just as good 👍🏻. The concept of the movie is interesting but, there are too many unanswered questions 🤔. Whether that is intentional or not I don’t know but, you’re left a little bewildered .
I feel Us will be a movie which will split the audience opinion. I would still recommend watching this movie, personally I just expected more being that Get Out was so good. Go check it out!
