Cinematography, Acting, Dialogue, Flow and Energy, Direction was all there. You are going to get Grade A directing with B movie like story. I enjoyed this movie and would see again. I clicked this movie when i saw Margot Robbie on the cover art only to discover it wasn’t her, but a doppelganger. She proved to be a good draw as did everyone else including Adam Brody, Andy McDowell, Henry Czerny.
Only gripes I had were the servants being involved and killed by accident. When I see these movies, I allow myself to be absorbed into whatever world they are presenting, but the director still has to be honest and with hired help involved in ritual killing, I couldn’t buy into it. But with that said, it was only one strike, and I didn’t see any other strikes for me to negate this movie.
Didn’t see surviving movie for a while this movie is great but don’t think too much. Just cheer her to survive.
I was really looking forward to this. It started well and I liked the characters for the most part. I was laughing quite a lot, which is not necessarily a good thing. By around the halfway mark I was starting to dislike it a lot, then everything went to hell (not in a good way) in the climax. What I didn’t like (SPOILERS obviously. br>
-the lead has no backstory/character. It’s mentioned at one point she had a foster family and we get that she doesn’t come from a rich family but that’s it. We know nothing about her. Same for the groom. “Get Out” set up the characters much, much better.
-I kept expecting the bride to “go Rambo.” The trailers seemed to imply she was gonna be a badass. How cool it would have been if she had a secret past (ex-military? that even her fiance didn’t know about. Nope. She just lucks her way through the film mostly.
-I was looking forward to seeing the rich family knocked off one-by-one. Nope. We got one kill (on purpose. Which leads me to. br>
-Having the entire family explode at the end? Ooookay. Kinda funny, but a huge wasted opportunity.
-Having the finance turn on her at the end was kinda of a cool idea, but the scene with the fiance and his mother made this nonsensical.
-the whole supernatural aspect made no sense. Why mention that Alex had seen the ghost. of the business partner if that’s not going to be a pay-off. The whole backstory with the great grandfather and his partner was not set up well. So Mr. Le Bail was supposed to be the devil? Were the family aware of this?
Anyway, I usually blind buy DVDs but luckily I saw this, um, elsewhere so won’t be purchasing this time (even though I’m a huge horror fan.
A very black and gory comedy which tries too hard to be funny and different. The story’s original, the acting’s good and there are plenty of subversions to expectation, but it all felt a bit forced and staged.
