Audience Reviews for Uncut Gems

  • Dec 04, 2020
    The dreck that Adam Sandler continuously produces on Netflix has seriously tarnished his star, but hoo-boy, does he pull out his acting chops for Uncut Gems. The dialogue is crazy-nuts -- almost as if Quentin Tarantino wrote this on crack. The Safdie brothers channeled the intense anxiety of the action in Good Time and channeled it into Sandler's fast-talking gems dealer. A Xanax may be required afterwards.

    The movie is a roller-coaster of aggravation and intensity that become exhausting to witness but it does a good job in making you feel that. Uncut Gems has Adam Sandler to thank for creating a powerhouse performance especially in the final act of the film. Overall, it's does a solid job in pissing you off and if you want to feel that way sometimes, this movie will help you with that. 3.6/5

    One of the most stressful thrillers I've ever seen and yes that's a compliment. Sandler fundamentally understands this character in a way a lot of other actors wouldn't. Every choice, every emotional plea, every joke is literally a gamble to him. Nothing is done if there isn't risk involved.

    I never thought a score could be so detrimental to a movie, but after this odd score played over the dialogue for the first 20 minutes of the film I was tempted to walk out. The story and directorial choices are very strange, and the acting is slightly above average at best. The film picks up towards the end but overall, it's not a great watch, or listen, by any stretch.
