REVIEW: ‘Us’

Published

on

Strap yourself in as Jordan Peele’s latest horror offering ‘Us’ hit theaters this past weekend and it came with a lot of hype, rightfully so, after the critical success of ‘Get Out’.

According to the synopsis:

“Accompanied by her husband, son and daughter, Adelaide Wilson returns to the beachfront home where she grew up as a child. Haunted by a traumatic experience from the past, Adelaide grows increasingly concerned that something bad is going to happen. Her worst fears soon become a reality when four masked strangers descend upon the house, forcing the Wilsons into a fight for survival. When the masks come off, the family is horrified to learn that each attacker takes the appearance of one of them.”

The film gets a solid review based on it’s complete originality, solid and natural approach at humor, and it’s ending which contains a twist that completely delivers.

Despite being a bit repetitive and fractured, the film’s story is so interesting that it never truly loses your attention and the amazing performance of Lupita Nyong’o steals every single scene.

If she doesn’t get consideration for every single major award based on this performance alone, that that is truly a crime.

The film is worth watching twice, so you can pick up on all the references, and the underlying stories interwoven into this film.
