A Good Follow-up to A Great Movie
While Get Out was more of a social thriller, the start of US makes it abundantly clear that Jordan Peele has set out to make a pure horror movie for his second directorial feature. In many ways, US is spectacular. Peeles directing is intense and methodical - many a times I caught myself holding my breath during this movie - and the acting, particularly Lupita Nyong O, is outstanding. However, the ending leaves a little to be desired, and the overall story when revealed, makes little to no sense. However, US is still a remarkable achievement for Jordan Peele and one salivates in anticipation of his next feature.
