The plot twists don't always add up and there are too many red herrings that create a sense of disappointment as Peele doesn't follow through.
October 28, 2020
Peele's eagerly awaited second feature is here, and Us does not disappoint.
October 1, 2020
With Us, another simplistic yet petrifying demonstration of the confrontational, Jordan Peele has announced himself as a master of horror.
September 26, 2020
An amazing ensemble effort.
September 3, 2020
A masterly double life feature that shows a comparison between good/evil, light/darkness, beautiful/putrid, and dance/violence. [Full review in Spanish]

What Us demonstrates is that Jordan Peele is not a one-hit wonder. It's easy to compare him to cinematic greats like Hitchcock or Kubrick, but he's already established that he is in a league of his own.

Taking too long to get there, Peele flubs an oddly inert home invasion when the family's maniacal scissor-wielding mirror images eventually show up. Basic jump scares abound, but there's no real terror.
August 15, 2020
Allegory seeps from every pore of the story and there's undeniable joy in untangling the myriad plot threads in the hours after the credits roll.
July 27, 2020
Scenes and set pieces begin to drag on for too long and . . . wear thin, especially once you realize that they're simple diversions from the themes Peele is trying to address.
July 24, 2020
The larger social commentary is timely, exposing the class divides of two parallel worlds. ... yet, the underlying metaphors never fully gel with the surface-level A-story plot, which is what "Get Out" did so well.
July 21, 2020
This film bites with all of its teeth. It's an exercise in a certain level of brutality that we seem to reserve for those we know the best -- our family, our friends, our neighbors.
July 13, 2020
Blood spluttered it may be, but Peele shows his worth twofold as a master of the psychological horror aficionado who is on to the path to greatness.
July 8, 2020
When the best of the movie is put to the test, Peele turns the mirror back on ourselves to show how far we will go to protect things that are closest to us.
July 8, 2020
Us soars as a survival horror film with touches of humor and a great lead performance. But in terms of subject matter, what it's trying to say gets a little lost in translation.
July 7, 2020
Peele is turning into a unique, elite director whose vision integrates social commentary, terror and comedy like no one else. [Full review in Spanish]
July 5, 2020
There's a lot you can open up and analyze, but you can just watch it as a straight forward horror film too.
July 2, 2020
[Jordan] Peele clearly knows his strengths, and he's playing to them brilliantly.
June 30, 2020
Creepy, atmospheric, weird-as-balls doppelgänger horror.
June 28, 2020
The story has a very Romero-esque quality to it, with its combination of isolating horror and situational humor, while his use of the camera has a style that simultaneously recalls both Hitchcock and Kubrick.
June 27, 2020
With this film, Peele experiments again with the psychological terror and subterfuge of the home invasion subgenre, but with the intention of using the theme of the evil double to conceive a powerful sociopolitical parable. [Full review in Spanish]
