Us Movie Review

“Us” (2019) Film Poster

Dante Ward, Staff Writer

Us is another one of Jordan Peele’s imaginative social horror films. Us dives into many themes and conflicts, such as man vs. self, kidnapping, and alternative reality.

(Without spoilers) the film starts with Adelaide Wilson (Lupita Nyong’o) and Gabe Wilson (Winston Duke)’s family going on a family vacation, and while there encounter their ‘evil counterparts’.

Us kept me glued to my seat, while also closely paying attention to all the little details of the movie (to fully understand the performances as a whole).

While (in my opinion) Us is not as great as Jordan Peele’s Get Out, Us is still a great sophomore film.
