Get Out Movie Review by Sputnik

When Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), a young African-American man, visits his white girlfriend’s (Allison Williams) family estate, he becomes ensnared in the more sinister, real reason for the invitation. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. This speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele (Key & Peele) is equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary.

The movie starts off like a modern day adaptation of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner but takes a creepy turn with the weird Black servants and what happens on the first night .

Some scenes are very good like the scene where Walter comes running towards him or the scene where he is hypnotized by Missy or the scene where he finds pictures of Rose with other Black men or the scene where Rod speaks to Rose. The scene where Georgina apologizes to Chris is very good too. The auction scene using Bingo is the best scene of the movie.

Daniel Kaluuya was excellent as Chris and was deservedly nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor. Allison Williams looked pretty and was very good as Rose Armitage, especially in the final scenes. Catherine Keener was very good as Rose’s mother Missy. Bradley Whitford was very good as Rose’s father Dean. Caleb Landry Jones was good as Rose’s brother Jeremy. Stephen Root was good as the blind Jim Hudson. Lakeith Stanfield was good as Andre/Logan. Lil Rel Howery was very good as Chris’ friend Rod. Marcus Henderson was very good as Walter. Betty Gabriel was excellent as Georgina.

The movie was nominated for four Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. The movie won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.

Screenplay and direction by Jordan Peele is excellent. Get Out is basically a modern day satire on slavery. It works very well as a horror movie too though the horror is not of the supernatural type.
