Critic Reviews for Get Out
By focusing the storyline on a particular form of racism -- the kind that's often disguised as peculiar envy -- Get Out reveals something more insidious.
Peele succeeds where sometimes even more experienced filmmakers fail: He's made an agile entertainment whose social and cultural observations are woven so tightly into the fabric that you're laughing even as you're thinking, and vice-versa.
What makes Get Out more than just a slam-bang scarefest is that, in its own darkly satiric way, it is also a movie about racial paranoia that captures the zeitgeist in ways that many more "prestigious" movies don't.
Jordan Peele makes his directing debut with a horror movie that sticks closely to genre convention even as its ribbing of white liberals hardens into a social point.
Following Oscar's pomp and self-importance, viewing Jordan Peele's fiercely entertaining thriller offers the perfect awards hangover cure. Audiences leave the theater shaken and stirred.
Audience Reviews for Get Out
A weekend getaway to meet the new girlfriend's parents is a horrific consideration for most guys no matter what the situation but Jordan Peele's debut squeezes this chestnut as if it were a bad comedy. This is a decent thrill ride with male paranoia as the fuel for the engine.
At least one of its scenes would have been included in the documentary had it released while "I Am Not Your Negro" was still in the making! May not be what they're aiming for, but that there's more than a handshake should suffice for the time being! One day at a time. NM.
Jordan Peele knows how to combine humor and psychological horror to make us feel constantly uncomfortable and apprehensive, and it is really amazing the way he tackles the nuances of daily-life racism - even though the villains' motivations don't really make any sense.
