Don't Believe the Hype
Mostly, the movie is committed to the value of a good time.
The movie's neither hopeful in contrived ways, nor hopeless in different contrived ways. Somehow it manages to be wonderful
I have heard that a white person remarked when watching this in a theater, all the black people cheered when ever any white person was killed. This film portrays white people as evil racist schemers, while the blacks are heroic and so innocent. I always try to treat everyone I meet the same, with consideration, but I do not get the same in return. As innocent as this movie portrays black people as such benevolent heroes, the truth is far from what this tries to make you believe. Overall it was very well made, with really great actors, I just felt very uncomfortable while watching this that this is just part of the continuing racial war being fed on both sides. Regardless of the past, which shows that every country (including Africa) has had slavery, we need to really work on moving past this. I believe that black filmmakers are trying to keep awareness of the past alive, even though most people in the USA are not racist, its only a fraction of the most ignorant and hateful that keep this up. But the fact that this movie so blatantly makes whites look evil, only furthers the truth as to who is really the most racist in this country.
At first, I did not understand what was the point of this film. When I finished watching it, I felt disappointed. I should say it now. Of course everything on the visual side was good, camera shoots, the acting, there were some other flaws in the plot, but I can close my eyes on them. I should discuss the main vulnerability in the story that caused the whole story fail. Racism, that this film is trying to judge so badly, was, and still is one of the biggest social problems. But you will agree me, In the real life it could be scarier, than this film expressed. Somehow, I don't know why, creators of the film decided to put Sci-Fi in the film and make it unrealistic, while they could take a film about segregation period in the USA, or about WW2 period. Also when I reached the end I saw only one message: "Let's hate each other". I can not call this movie Anti-Racist. I definitely would give it 10, if they made movie realistic and filled with anti racist messages, but now it does not deserve more than 5.
I understand the premise of the movie but it was just Ok for me. Not sure what the hype was about.
The only reason why everyone bought into this being a scary movie and like, the best scary movie of all time, duh- is that it got people who never watch scary movies, to see a scary movie and then write outstanding reviews about it being the best scary movie ever. Predictable, overrated and oh yeah, not scary.
