Phenomenal film making! The camera work draws the viewer in so intimately that you feel as if you are running with these brave young men on their dangerous mission. Despite not much in the way of character building, your heart is beating along with these characters' hearts. The pace, the score, the cinematography and young George Mackay's acting all make for a superb visual storytelling experience. Go see it at the movies!
This movie really IS as good as everyone says it is! Never a dull moment watching the ups and downs of a family living in our hierarchical times where the gap between rich and poor grows ever larger. Director Bong Joon-Ho is a master of the symbolism of societal problems and his attention to detail and editing is unparalleled. This movie deserves the accolade of Best Movie 2019. (so much better executed than 'US')
Steve Martin is comedy gold in this movie. Look for this scene: Freddy (Steve Martin): "Excuse me. May I go to the bathroom first?" Lawrence (Michael Caine): "Of course you may." Freddy (Steve Martin) : [after a pause, and with relief] "Thank you".
Once you realize this movie is a political allegory for the gap between rich and poor in the World today, you will really enjoy the symbolism. Amazing job by Director Bong Joon-ho and Chris Evans is almost unrecognizable but great performance, not to mention Tilda Swinton!
The most bizarre movie I have seen in a long time. The beginning had promise and then it just degenerated into one of the weirdest scenes I have ever seen. The row of seats I was sitting in all laughed at what I presume was supposed to be more horrific than funny.
