Movie Review-Us

March 22, 2019

US is the follow up to Jordan Peele's 2018, GET OUT. It has some elements in common with his previous film, for one it's the new genre of movie called a "Political Thriller." While the movie has a lot of suspense in it it also makes a lot of political statements about the current state of the world, but, make no mistake, this is a straight up horror/suspense film with something creepy hanging around every corner. 

 

Lupita Nyong'o gives a great performance as the current day mother and the child of the '80s who first encountered the doppelgangers, which are characters that appeared in early literature. A doppelganger is an evil twin that is usually played by a ghostly spirit.

 

While Nyong'o has other cast members who play her family in the movie, it is her stellar acting performance who holds the entire movie together. She does a great job of playing terrified. 

 

Much like an M. Night Shyamalan movie, there are so many plot twists I'm afraid I would ruin the movie for you if I revealed too much. The movie is part suspense, partly a home invasion movie and it is all good.

 

The movie is rated R for language and violence at it runs at 1 hour and 56 minutes. US is a smart movie and on My "Hollywood Popcorn Scale" I rate it a JUMBO!
