      Don't Look Up Reviews

      Prev Next

      Despite some clever gags... the film ultimately runs out of steam and fails to make a deep impact.

      How I learned to stop worrying and love Don’t Look Up? Adam McKay’s film is a savage American political satire and the best since Wag the Dog. In his own words, he timed that shit perfectly.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5 | Oct 21, 2022

      Don’t Look Up calls out institutional indifference to impending disaster with relatable and riveting rage thanks to a scorching script and engaged ensemble.

      There’s so much crammed into this movie, and it’s a miracle that (for the most part) McKay manages to hold it all together.

      It's merely stating what everyone has already observed for the past two years, and delivering it with a shit-eating grin.

      A satire that at times reaches a revitalizing elegance and at others seems to emulate the level of discourse and debate in social media, television, and family tables: rough, raw, superficial, and even vulgar. [Full review in Spanish]

      Initially, the satire has a few funny moments... But I can't remember anything else. For this reason, I can't judge it fairly. [Full review in Spanish]

      Although I tend to agree with McKay’s worldview and identify with his cynicism about politics, media culture, and humanity’s general short-sightedness, his methods as a filmmaker rarely convince me. Don’t Look Up might be the exception.

      Like "The Big Short" and "Vice," McKay's latest film pulls no punches in his political commentary, as he continues to make some excellent points but in a primarily condescending manner to his viewers who already received the message long ago.

      Full Review | Original Score: 6/10 | May 18, 2022

      The bulk of the movie is played for gags before the serious stuff kicks in at the end. Its never easy for a director to reconcile such contrasting tones, and McKay is no exception.

      Its still sadly rare to see female characters working in STEM given the grace to be imperfect on screen.

      Full Review | Original Score: B- | Mar 17, 2022

      Don’t Look Up ultimately feels like just one more disaster movie: it is far easier—and maybe even more fun—to imagine the apocalyptic end of the world than to imagine how we could live in a radically different way now to prevent it.

      I thought this was a brilliant film, the satire was on message. It's this kind of court jester-like satire that I really resonate with, and the cast was spectacular. (Steve)

      Unfortunately, McKay and Sirota remain shy and hide behind shallow and often silly humor. Despite this, many will very much come to enjoy and perhaps even love this film.

      The blitheness with which McKay approaches his noble pet subjects is not unlike Kendall Roys dedication to performing rap songs in Succession, which McKay also produces.

      You dont believe anything that happens in this film. The moments are rendered in rather cartoonish fashion; for a film invested in tackling the zeitgeist, I dont think it quite gets how people act in times of crisis.

      Overall, its intentions are too noble to call it a flop, but I still cant understand how so many awards bodies are slobbering all over it with accolades. Not everything with Leonardo DiCaprio and Meryl Streep in it is immediately Oscar-calibre, folks.

      Dont Look Up is as entertaining as watching your most obnoxious relative rant at the family during a holiday dinner.

      But despite all the glitter, this satirical disaster movie about a comet hurtling toward Earth doesnt shine.

      DiCaprio and Lawrence are phenomenal and lead an all-star cast in this showy satire where science, politics and human nature clash in response to an imminent disaster. Full Review in Spanish
