It's so bland and boring it feels much longer than it is. How FOX SEARCHLIGHT allowed this movie to be released as is is a mystery. Were there no dailies to look at and give notes on? Did the Disney purchase put it under the radar? No idea but it's shocking how bad it is.
I'm a fan of Louis-Dreyfus and Ferrell but this movie is terrible.
The action is okay at times but feels/looks very choreographed instead of natural. (Very "Wick-derivitive" and not in a good way.) The dialogue is terrible. The story also clumsily jumps around in one place. The characters felt at times like they were taken from a first draft. The actors give it their all but it's not well-written.
The only reason this movie has an 85% rating is due to "Racial Fear." After one reviewer gave Get Out a bad score he was called a racist and as a result of that every other critic is now deathly afraid of disliking a movie revolving around a social/racial cause. Queen & Slim is horrible. The dialogue feels "written" as opposed to being things people normally say and there are things that happen throughout the movie that are so unreal it feels more like a first draft of a 100 level Intro to Screenwriting class. It's horrible. Apparently prostitutes in the suburbs of Louisiana only wear/own flashy clothes like you see on pros in Times Square in the 80s. The logic in the movie makes no sense at all. The lead character is an attorney who makes terrible decisions from the first scene of the movie and they never improve. This is one to wait for cable and maybe even then skip it. It's poorly executed from page 1 through to the end.
It's cute but forgettable. It feels a bit more like a Hallmark or Lifetime movie. There are some great performances but it feels a bit bland.
NO SPOILERS! - A great movie. Never having read the book I can't vouch for its accuracy but as someone who's seen The Shining (and didn't enjoy it) I can say I liked it a lot. The acting's great. The only critique is in not having the question answered as to what exactly the villains were. But that's a small point. The movie's paced well. It doesn't feel long and it's not as "weird" (for lack of a better term) as Kubrick's version.
