Goofs

Anesthesia for the operation, a craniotomy, appears to be non-existent. Even if the film maker's intention was that the patient was given a single intravenous injection off-screen, in reality, anesthesia for a craniotomy is highly complex and requires the constant presence and action of an anesthetist.

Hooray, nightmares
19 July 2019 | by Aaron_KyleSee all my reviews

From hit or miss comedy to Get Out, Jordan Peele proves to us that he has certainly matured as a filmmaker.

Get Out is one of the best and most refreshingly original horror movies in the last decade. Rather than having in your face predictable jump scares and cheesy music, Get Out dwells on the mind and relies on the fear of the unknown while giving subtle messages on racism and what's it like to be black in America and for an anti-racism movie everything is handled very well due to Peele's great writing. As I've already mentioned the best aspect of Get Out is the writing; the characters are intelligent people and behave like logical human beings instead of cliché horror movie idiots. Everything happens for a reason and there is a meaning behind everything. Also unlike other horror movie clichés Get Out doesn't fake its scares or replaces them with needless humour. Instead, the humour (mainly Lil Rel Howery's character) is perfectly balanced with the story and shows up at adequate times.

Creepy, unsettling and filled with brilliant performances (primarily from Daniel Kaluuya) and even better writing, Get Out perfectly represents the US society in its current era.

Final Score: 8+/10
