Synopsis


Get Out
A young African-American photographer (Daniel Kaluuya) is nervous at the thought of meeting his white girlfriend's parents (Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford) for the first time during a trip to the latter's country estate. However, his anxiety soon turns into outright terror when he discovers that the family's seemingly idyllic community is hiding a sinister conspiracy, one that involves the disappearance of several black people in the area. Jordan Peele, one half of the comedic duo Key & Peele, makes his directorial debut with this horror thriller. Allison Williams, LaKeith Stanfield, and Caleb Landry Jones co-star. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    Jordan Peele's incredible debut film

    It was my second viewing of Jordan Peele’s independent little film, “Get Out”, that grabbed me. On my first viewing I was lulled into complacency while lazily taking in the first half of the film, the kind of complacency the film ultimately squelches. I had conveniently forgotten the short pre-credit sequence of a casual black man walking through a white suburb at night being struck and abducted into the trunk of a car. Everybody does, and when it catches up with you, you know it. Previously a comedian, this is writer/director/producer Peele’s directorial debut, and he gives us the African-American nastiness of a Hitchcock, palming his aces to play in the last half hour of the film with the relish of the Master. The set up: a young black man is pressured by his white girlfriend into meeting her parents by spending a weekend at their secluded estate in the woods. What follows is a gradual descent into nightmare as he intermingles with upper class white liberals who bring out the paranoia in him – or do they have their own agenda? (Remember even paranoids have real enemies.) Watching this film might enlighten white liberals like myself by forcing us to experience what black people have felt for years in our company (let alone among white conservative racists!), but the film goes much further than one might imagine, even taking the form of a horror fable encompassing not just racial themes but also serving as an uncompromisingly astute societal dissection. Shot in a mere 23 days, Jordan Peele has done something really special here: an engrossing thriller that also bravely delves into important issues, issues that Peele himself has had to deal with personally: e.g., the marginalizing of African-Americans (“No matter how hard we scream, the system silences us,” Peele says). But don’t get me wrong: This is a work of entertainment, not a ‘message’ film -- and that’s all to the good.

    Get Out is the directorial debut of Jordan Peele who you might recognize from the sketch comedy show, Key & Peele. Get Out is not a comedy though it contains a fair amount of laughs, namely from the performance of stand-up comedian LilRel Howery who will get many, many jobs from this star-making performance. What Get Out actually turns out to be is a rather striking thriller that provides a topical conversation around racial tensions that then amplifies and exaggerates the inherent tensions of its presented scenario in a way that both plays with the tropes of the horror genre while delivering commentary on innate and unavoidable fears in the black community. I heard someone explain it as, "playing on black people's fear of white people's fear of black people," and it's hard to put it any better or more simply than that. This is all to get to the point that Get Out is making the point that we need to stop pretending we know what it's like to walk in other people's shoes. Not that these assumptions can't be compassionate, but more that they are unnecessary. Get Out begins as one thing-playing on the natural awkwardness that comes along with a black guy going to meet his white girlfriends entirely white family in their very white/suburban neighborhood for the first time and then, once it arrives there, takes steps using its genre classification to get at this idea that no matter how good or well-intentioned one might be, it is near impossible to have a real comprehension of what people who have experienced struggles and/or faced some kind of oppression have indeed been through and more over, who they became out of such experiences. Get Out is a film that plays on those facets of ourselves that we'd rather not acknowledge-that no matter how much we believe ourselves to be above stereotyping people or forming preconceptions, that there is a truth to such ways of thinking and Peele uses this unavoidable, unflattering truth to draw out a fair amount of anxiety. Peele plays on those anxieties and social standards exceptionally as through to the very last frame Get Out keeps things as taut as any horror movie in recent memory while never losing sight of its original intent no matter how crazy the genre hijinks get.

    One of my year's best

    Great film! From the acting to the flow of the plot, very enjoyable and well done. The story itself doesn't drag or go to quick and the idea alone is original. The acting was phenomenal, the way the characters were portrayed was great with how developed and in depth they were. Some of the acting seems a little off but I am sure that this was done intentionally to give the viewer an off feeling for certain scenes in order to cause an involuntary deduction of both the key pivotal moments and the subtle details. The alternate ending in my opinion was beautifully conceived but the used ending was sufficient. I believe that this movie delves further than on matters of race, I must say that there are points to this story that are very relatable... It covers the issues of trust with others and ones own judgement. I absolutely enjoyed the character Chris. Without giving away much I will say he pulls you into a point where you can see this story through his eyes(this line is humorous if you watch it). Honestly, though I am not too exercised in giving good reviews. That being said if want an exciting, deep, thrilling, and initially confusing in a good way movie, I implore you to give this refreshing masterpiece a chance.

    Get Out is a tight, well made, and strongly acted Thriller that's just as tense and enjoyable on a second viewing, even one that comes only months after the first. Speaking of months, Universal's UHD release may be a few of them late to the party, but the good news is that the UHD offers a quality upgrade both visually (2160p/HDR) and sonically (DTS: X). While no new extras are included, this is certainly the new definitive release of one of the year's best films. Highly recommended to newcomers, and those who can sell the old Blu-ray to offset some of the cost for this new UHD are encouraged to do so; it's a worthwhile upgrade.

    I don't know why i waited so long to see this. The trailer certainly piqued my interest and upon viewing I had to watch it again. That's usually the sign of a wonderful movie...I did the same with Shutter Island, Drive, No Country for Old Men, Ernest Scared Stupid, etc...Wonderfully done and it seems to be getting a lot of praise on year end lists. I'm certainly excited to have seen it and I love watching it with people who haven't seen it. I was a little upset that I spent so much time trying to guess what was happening rather than sitting back and enjoying it outright the first time. Very cool movie, look forward to see what the director does next.

    Since this is a review for the product, I'll focus mostly on that. I personally loved it but I can see it not being someone else's cup of tea. Great horror with social commentary not driven down your throat. Smart and fun. The video is solid, the sound is lossless. Great transfer to Blu-Ray, quality is well worth the price. I do wish it had more features though. There's a small featurette covering the making of the film, not too in depth though and a Q&A with some of the cast and Jordan Peele. For a first film, it was executed extremely well and Universal did a darn good job on the video and sound transfer. If you're a horror fan, absolutely check it out.

    I avoided this in theaters because horror movies don't scare me and horror-comedies annoy me. That was a mistake on my part. This movie is sly, witty, tense, dark and has quite a lot on its mind. Sure, it can be enjoyed on its entertaining surface -- but you can dig deeper. The presentation is solid. Good picture, good audio -- especially for such a low budget feature. The director's commentary has some great tidbits. The disc also includes many deleted scenes and a darker alternate ending, all of which also feature commentary discussing why the director chose to leave them out.

    I bought this after reading reviews on a favorite high def website I check out. I also saw how it did financially so I took the plunge. I am very happy I bought this movie. I like horror, science fiction, and action flicks so this kind of checks off a number of things I am into. It also had a perfect amount of humor in it. It is certainly a suspenseful movie and that is what I think they are aiming for but it still had occasional comic relief. All the actors were firing on all cylinders, there were no weak links in my estimation. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys these types of movies.
