      I watched this on the plane on the way over to Indonesia earlier in the month and enjoyed it. It's great to see horror that doesn't reach for the same tired old tropes. Some great performances here too. Not sure I would invest in the 4KBD, though. I feel like once you've seen it, you're done.

      Shame about the picture quality as it looked outstanding on the big screen, I'd have to give a 9 or 10 for movie though. Definitely my favourite of the year.

      very much split opinions, when I saw it at the cinema, we had half the cinema left as they walked out. The other half sat in complete disbelief in how awful this movie was, it was bordering a comedy. People shouted out crude words etc.

      I thought it was as vastly overrated as Get Out.

      Such a bizarre movie- parts of it I (and most of the audience) were laughing out loud at it it was so bad whereas other bits were well done. Personally I think the Director is vastly overrated (as is typical of so many things/people these days) but I do think he has a good film in him...'Get Out' was also overrated imo.
      Anyway I do give credit to the Director as it's quite unique in many parts and has stuck in my head. I'll be interested to see what he does in the future.
      Enjoyed the beach scenes in Santa Cruz California (same setting for 'The Lost Boys' but was called Santa Carla) where I lived close to for many years.
      Just my 2 cents :)

      Staggeringly overrated. More positive discrimination. Like Black Panther getting an Oscar nomination.

      I want to disagree, but Black Panther is indeed a staggeringly predictable and boring movie. Us is a much better film, IMO. Still wouldn't watch it more than once, though.

      All the main film critics to a man/woman were saying Black Panther was the best Marvel film at that point.
      I came away from it feeling extremely underwhelmed.
      There does seem to be an agenda with critics regarding films made by/starring black people.
      A film should be critiqued on its merit and nothing else.

      I found this film to be a bit of a confused mess. It started off brilliantly, with a really ominous, creepy atmosphere. Then, once the 'doppelgangers' appeared it got very silly, very quickly...

      Peele has great promise as a filmmaker, but all the critical love is a little misguided in my opinion. He's not 'there' yet...he has issues with finding the right tone. Unfortunately, the cynic in me can't help but think that because of his racial subtexts, people are more...forgiving.

      I agree with above comments especially black panther what a bore, with dodgy fx. U.S i would give a 7 quite interesting the beginning but kind of fell apart as the movie went along. Yes it's very overrated a one time watch.

      I'm a massive horror fan, and think there's a lot of overrated /just plain old crap horrors out there lately, but I absolutely loved this. I also really enjoyed Get Out, so Peele is batting 2 for 2 in my book.

      The film Get Out reminded me of was an old 70's one - The Stepford Wives.

      I enjoyed this until the last act when it literally goes “downhill” in my opinion. Sadly, the great premise, that gives a great start and middle, quickly becomes a shaggy dog story that doesn’t really know how to end the interesting idea it begins with. Suffice to say, I loved the initial fairground story and some horror elements within the film - and there are some great stand out moments - but overall it ranks as a good film to me and not the great one most critics at the time of release stated it was/is. Definitely worth a watch though.

      Thought this was much better on a second viewing and enjoyed it far more than Get Out.

      I watched this over the wekend. I dont regret buying the Blu Ray version but ultimately it was a frustrating experience.
      I loved 'Get Out'. A genuinely original film. Well written and directed. My problem with 'Us' is that the overal premise is weak in my opinion and quite frankly I was never quite able to suspend disbelief. That said there are some great scenes and this film is very different to the standard cliche ridden horror film. On the other hand there are scenes which border on the comical and for me just dont work. Another positive is the acting which on occasion is superb.
      In conclusion I would say that this film is worth a watch, its never boring and it does make you think. But for me its a 'could do better'. 6/10

      Whilst I loved get out - this wasn't my cup of tea.
      It started off strong and ended well however the middle felt a bit like a slightly better version of 'the purge'.
      I think this might have worked better with a lot of trimming (I mean make it half the length) as a new twilight zone episode.
      I did however think all the actors / actresses were really good and would like to see more of them.

      Get Out was great. Us was really really bad! Had so much promise at the start and then fizzled out!
