Aussie boy's thoughts
Jordan Peele’s mysterious horror-thriller concentrates on eerie strangeness, weird riddles and racial tension, but it just results in distracting and relieving entertainment. Sure, Get Out is the type of movie that boggles with your mind and creates solid suspense as any other thriller would, but overall, it feels like nothing but memorable fun!
It’s kind of hard to perceive the horror-themed section as serious, as although it’s fascinating and you feel the same emotions as the star, it’s just pure leisure. This film is focused on a black man who visit’s his white girlfriend’s white parents and things turn out to be strange. Daniel Kaluuya obviously delivers a solid and serious performance. Lil Rel Howery is also undeniably perfect as the character you’d describe as the “comical relief”.
And although the rest of the cast lacks the stage of full maturity, they’re just not meant to fit in as the serious roles, which is another great thing about the movie. There’s plenty of smiles wrapping around the lead character’s confused expression. Honestly, this movie might also be one of the most entertaining movies of 2017, considering there’s not a single bore throughout and the plot is constantly jumping around.
