" Freaks " is a definitely " Should See " mystery suspense thriller for anyone who likes Sci Fi. It's not on the scale of something like "Alien" but I think it kind of has a sleeper quality like "The 6th Sense". It involves a premise where Mutants with powers are emerging and the "Normals" severe reaction to their existence. In a way it's almost an X-Men origin story but has nothing to do with the Marvel Universe and I wouldn't call it a Superhero movie. It's got Bruce Dern. You better go !!!!!! before it's gone.
I pretty much agree with the review of Bill Goodykoontz under the "Critics Review" section. Probably not a movie for the basic film goer. More for those looking for something a little off-beat. I think it's worth seeing.
I'd probably give it a 3.5 but worth rounding up. My wife who is from China also thought it was good and might not be allowed to be shown in China. A good tale of the abuse of power by the privileged in China.
