    Wonderfully Fascinating
    I actually thought this movie was a stronger, more rich horror movie than Get Out was. Both are comments on society. If you ask me, Jordan Peele grew with the making of Us. Get Out hits you over the head with a mallet with its racial agenda (hand this man an Oscar!!), Us is far more subtle in its commentary.

    This movie is fairly unique, which immediately gets my attention. A family is attacked by their doppelgängers (or, "tethered"), who turn out to be an entire underground society, the product of some weird, abandoned experiment. I really dug the moody, classic score.

    Surprisingly, this movie has a real sense of humor, which I found a little odd, considering the overall sense of dread. But it works. There's a great twist at the end, which will make you want to see it all over again with this new knowledge. In the extras, director/writer Peele says "I don't see myself moving far away from horror anytime soon," which is refreshing. Usually, directors want to move on, or stretch out to greener pastures from starting out in horror. He seems to be a real student of the genre, and a fan of the classics (also interesting as he's more well-known as a comedian).

    great idea, questionable realization
    Those who decided on this film had a great and strange idea, but those who made it did not do a great job. The film is boring, they could make the film last 1 hour and 15 minutes because the true and interesting story needed only this duration. After the interesting part the whole thing becomes inexplicable until in the end someone has invented a banal boring story. To be such a psychologically disturbing horror, they could also insert a little more bloody and explicit scenes, they showed the madness without which it leads. The best point of the film is the actors, you immediately notice their high level. The best actor is Lupita Nyong'o. The sound and the music are also of high level and centering with madness and horror. The setting is very cute, disturbing. The characters are not very thorough but you understand quite well the personality of each. " Us" is a movie that doesn't make me want to see it again because it's a normal movie like the others. Wasted opportunity.

    . Rating: 6.3/10.
