Gorgeous and fascinating at its best, messy and eyebrow-raising at its worst. The first hour is stupendous - the performances are unbelievable, and this is Wright’s best-looking film yet, despite being his least showy. But as the second half goes on, the mystery and strong thematic elements become more hackneyed than it previously seemed, and the climax is bizarre in how it seems to contradict the rest of the movie. Amazing filmmaking but very mixed script. It’s a Wright joint, basically.

A really great first act gives way to too much ghostly frights and a final act with too much running around and not enough story. This leads to an ending that is a lot less fulfilling or interesting than I think a lot of people would have been expecting based on the first hour. Visually great, except for the overuse of the ghost effects. Overall pretty fun experience that still left me disappointed from the unfulfilled potential.

Edgar Wright is back! It always feels like it’s been an eternity since his last film whenever his next one releases. While I wouldn’t say this is my favorite from him, it’s very gorgeous and insanely fun. I thought the concepts were executed really well and the performances were all solid. McKenzie is seriously excellent. This will definitely hit more with Wright’s fans, but that’s okay. I for one was fine with the ending. Go to the theatre. Support it. It should be watched.

Was extremely excited for this but it left me cold. The filmmaking and performances are great, but the script is Wright's weakest by far. It wears its influences on its sleeve, particularly Polanski and Argento, and has plenty of style but falters when it comes to the substance of the plot and characters. The supporting cast is especially underwritten to the point of caricature. I'll give this one another chance in the future and hope to like it more.

Spoilerly Comments - I needed a better twist than Terence Stamp not being Zod but I think that would require another male presence that would at least throw some questions as to who could be who but the last thing this needed was more runtime for red herring. So I don't know. My only script is about a Werewolf Ninja so what do I know?

It uses music like a Wright movie should, and I was really impressed with the usage of colour, and how he made normal horror moments more interesting with his visual flair. Used mirrors wonderfully and really dealt with the bending reality typical of horror flicks brilliantly as well. Reminded me of Suspiria. And god damn was McKenzie ever brilliant in this. Her face/voice garners sympathy instantly but she did a lot of heavy lifting. The plot was exciting and suspenseful and never boring.

Wright has some interesting visual tricks to show Eloise is both inhabiting & watching Sandie’s life, but then spends waay too much time showing us she’s haunted by ghosts - along w/ wall to wall 60’s songs. The finale’s twist is very surprising, but isn’t satisfying because it’s built on a giant contrivance: Eloise feels & sees EVERYTHING that happened to Sandie but NOT the most important part of her story?? (Wright also cheats & films the key scene in 2 different ways.)

Nicely shot and edited at times, with some proper nods to Giallo horror and '60s London aesthetics. But they belong to a really incompetent film, full of glaring plot-holes and awfully written characters (who appear to serve only the plot), as well as no tangible pay-off to this nightmare fantasy. I've never liked Edgar Wright, but I thought I'd always give him a chance, especially as he traverses into new genres -- not anymore.

Wright the director wildly outpaces Wright the writer here. LNIS looks and sounds amazing, one long disorienting musical ride from harmless nostalgia to the hell that is the past. And McKenzie, Taylor-Joy and Rigg are excellent. Script-wise, it's... patchier; not the most original ghost story, not the most fleshed-out side characters, not the most subversive twist. But damn, it's a ride. Or in other words, I guess, it's a lot.

More or less ruined by the second half of the film, after setting up a compelling thriller premise that was sold by the cinematography and ATJ & Matt Smith. I can't believe Wright reviewed the horror elements in the back half and went ahead with them, they're that bad. Also, no comeuppance for Hurricane Jocasta?

Wright juggles some pretty serious shifts in tone as what starts out seeming to be a light, fantasy-comedy enters pure horror film territory. The film seems to be a bit longer than it needs to be with most of it's third act devoted to seemingly endless running and screaming, but the film's climactic twist pretty much brings it back home. Michael Ajao plays the most understanding potential boyfriend in the universe, and his character is a little tough to buy.

It's become obvious to me that Edgar Wright is one of my all-time favorite filmmakers. He may not be as prolific as some others, but everything he makes is a smash hit with me. Here he amps up the visual stylishness and marries that with unexpected, meaningful horror elements, a great story with fantastic music and an impactful twist, excellent performances from the female leads, and despite a slightly-undercooked character device, the result is one of my favorite viewing experiences of 2021.

I feel like this will be a film that will grow on me with a second watch. Or maybe I will hate it? Who knows. That's the power of cinema, baby. Edgar Wright removes the comedy aspect of his work, and focuses on creating a time-bending murder mystery. Its cinematography is inspired by Giallo, and its narrative by the Apartment Trilogy. However, it very much feels like its own thing. Wright deconstructs nostalgia by showing the dangers of romanticizing a time period. Google, what is Soho?

Its twists are all predictable, its turns are all pretty much expected, it hits all of the story beats you think it's gonna hit. But damnit it's a blast. Two of the best actresses in the game, Edgar Wright's ever-present weaving of music into his storytelling, the script that has a lot to say & says most of it well even if it doesn't stick the landing every time. I didn't even care that the ghosts looked goofy. The ending's the iffiest part, but I'm okay with it. This was what I needed it to be.

Edgar Wright is one of my favorite directors, so needless to say I was VERY excited for this. I thought all of the performances were very good, which is expected with the given cast, but Thomasin McKenzie was a standout for me. I haven't seen her in a ton, but she really surprised me here and I can't wait to see her in more. Taylor-Joy is always a sight to watch, and I thought, though this was a different role for her, she did an exceptional job. Not too bad. I give 9 red hues out of 10.

A stylish psychological thriller that unravels into ghostly horror. I've always felt Edgar Wright is a much better director than writer, and I think that shows up here. There are some sequences (the entire Cafe De Paris bit springs to mind) that are breathtakingly well put together. But the story meanders a bit through the middle and end. I enjoyed it for sure, but I think a better writer might have elevated it to true greatness.

Last Night in Soho benefits from Wright's propensity for colour, detail & motion to elevate a routine mystery-horror, but his aggressive use of music dominates each scene to the point where the plot & characters feel auxiliary. Rigg was great. Taylor-Joy gave a good physical performance. McKenzie's meek protagonist comes across as shallow. Ajao's gimped nice-guy act was amusing, whether intentional or not. The film is enjoyable while following where Wright leads, but not particularly deep.

wright continues his dynamic camerawork here but with this kind of color palette and stunted dialogue (and some performances) it's little too cheesy. visualization of mental disarray and feeling of out-of-place works to a certain extent but there's nothing creative in that regard, it's as if they fell in love with the allegory they came up with and then used stock ideas for the rest from other films.

Viewed October 29, 2021. Edgar Wright's talent does not lie in recreating beloved genre movies - nobody remembers the zombie parts of Shaun of the Dead or the action sequences in Hot Fuzz - but in the warm characterizations he builds within these familiar genre frameworks. This is laid bare in Last Night in Soho, a film that tries very hard to recreate Wright's beloved giallo genre to decidedly mediocre results.

Oof, this one’s a big “no thank you” from me. As delightful as an Edgar Wright-directed horror movie starring Thomasin McKenzie sounds (and to be clear, McKenzie innocent), the end result is anything but. Setting aside the fact that this handles delicate subject matter with all the finesse of a tipsy elephant, it’s a bizarrely unpleasant film. A two-hour barrage of a life being helplessly destroyed, I never found this fun or scary, just stressful and miserable.

Last Night in Soho is a postmodern, stylish and sophisticated horror film under the tremendous direction of Edgar Wright. The storytelling may be predictable, but the impact of creative scenes, combined with great colors and interesting characters, creates fascinating moments. Anya Taylor-Joy is mesmerizing. Thomasin McKenzie is glowing. (11/15/2021 - Cinemaximum Akasya)

I’ve always disliked story-driven movies. Characters should always be the driving force. Any epic is about what a person does NOT what happens to them. The plot twists were hinted so subtly (not) that it gave me a blunt force trauma. LNiS a jukebox thriller that boasts some impressive camera trickery but the characters are aggravatingly bland. The movie wears the characters, the characters do not wear the movie.

1st hour: 80, 2nd hour: 40. A total banger of a start that had me laughing out loud almost every minute, but it's followed by way too many lifeless horror and frantic chase scenes, dropping the humor and coming of age story entirely. So ultimately a boring and pretty uncomfortable sit through.

I wasn't sure if Anya would be suited for this movie, but I'm so glad she got the half main role. As usual, Wright's excellent rigor for well chosen shots and fast paced editing brings you through most of the movie. Just like the other movies of his, this one has no clear idea how to close the story elegantly, but it finds a wobbling way out of it somehow. I'm not going to mention the soundtrack since it's exquisite just all his other movies but not as good Baby Driver.

Fans of this film should treat themselves to the overlooked gem 'The Small World of Sammy Lee' (1963). That would make for a very interesting double bill. 'Last Night in Soho' is a pretty good movie (in fact, on a technical level, an impressive one), but it's my least favorite in Wright's oeuvre... Now, if you're the least bit squeamish about spoilers, beware: I wanted (and half-expected) 'Mulholland Dr.' meets 'Black Swan' but instead I got what's basically a genre take on 'Midnight in Paris'.

Wright successfully tricked me into thinking Soho was more than just a whodunnit in the vein of Sixth Sense. He also tricked me into thinking this was NOT Hot Fuzz; and then the 3rd act came crashing in, throwing all that built-up tension into a melodramatic vacuum. Perfect Blue treads the themes this flirts with treading in a way that's endlessly more compelling and will probably never get anywhere near the same amount of attention.

I was excited by initial shots of the 'House' which looked exactly like 'The Ladykillers' Ealing Comedy and I thought we were in for a real treat. However, the 'Heathers' side-plot felt YA and made-for-tv, and the final twist was unnecessary and bland. With half an hour of re-writing, it could easily be a feature-length episode of Doctor Who. Ah well...

It's a Halloween flick, alright. I didn't think Get Out was that clever, but Wright's take on the contemporary psycho-thriller-horror genre felt even more one-note and stilted, with many by-the-numbers moments of jump scares and mental breakdowns. I had an "Oh, okay." response to the climax and final act, the exact same underwhelming reaction I had with Baby Driver's.

Genuinely impressed by how relentlessly mean Wright was willing to be here. His camera takes the psycho-thriller genre and turns it up to max manic velocity. I was seriously loving the first half of this: the Giallo lighting, the Lynchian dream blur, the constant tension - totally immersive - even though the writing eventually crumbles under its own weight, the rush provided is what the movies are for.

Sat on Soho overnight and I’m liking it less as I’m thinking about it more. It looks nice (colours obviously) and you do get kind of lost in it for the first 40 minutes or so and then it kind of unravels from there. Quite possibly Wright’s most in your face “look guys I know good movies” movie. Not in an interesting way like Wes Anderson is able to show their influences. Seems more like a debut movie and not an acclaimed directors like 8th.

It's haunting and recreates the sixties with a very depressing retrospective on how show business worked in those times.

First of all, this film is pure eye candy. Wright and DP Chung-hoon Chung work great together and I was so immersed the whole time. Both McKenzie and Taylor-Joy have incredible performances and add so much glamour to the film. When we move deeper from the visual level, we come across the writing. It's not the best, and you could say it was narratively a bit hollow. But honestly, I thoroughly enjoyed this and was positively surprised.

Acho uma boa homenagem ao Swinging London, ter três grandes ícones do período no elenco ajuda muito na carta de amor, mas dos longas do diretor esse filme é o que menos gostei (junto com o Scott Pilgrim). Acho que o que me decepcionou mais foi ter uma caralhada dizendo que era uma espécie de neo-giallo e definitivamente não é, está muito mais próximo mesmo do que o próprio diretor mencionou como influência: Repulsion do Polanski, o epitome da esquizofrenia no Swinging Sixties.

The first half is really excellent with Wright showing off both modern and 60's london in style, an intriguing mystery and fantastic work from both McKenzie and Taylor-Joy. Sadly it sags a little after this, with Wright dwelling far too long on the mid section with a repetitive series of sequences of seeing the same ghosts. The twist is predictable with so few characters in play, but also somewhat clunky, forced and something more suited to 'Tales of the Unexpected' if I'm being harsh. RIP Diana

Wright definitely needs a counterpart like Pegg. While his hard lean into tropey characters suited the steely Baby Driver well, Soho desperately needed its characters to feel emotions other than their assigned ones. Everyone does well but they don’t get to do anything outside their preprogrammed attributes. Similarly, the filmmaking is enchanting but without any charming reprieves, it feels a little hollow.

So Edgar Wright seems to love serial killers, and I don't quite mean "loves telling stories about them"... Anyhow, that unsettling notion aside, the fact that his idea of "horror" is using badly CGI faceless ghosts for jump scares or in the background–ALL the time–was accidentally humorous. But the movie's biggest problem comes even before all the murder rationalization started: I was so bored I hoped a car would finally hit the main character instead of again barely missing her.

This film rivals and perhaps surpasses Hereditary in its use of sound (and especially music) to elevate tension, excitement, nostalgia, and mood-shift and shock. Similarly it uses visuals much like La La Land and maybe even more impressively. Great editing is here! Kind of like the film Us, the story is the missing link here. I admit I liked this more than any fever pitch movie Ive watched. This freak show surpasses Fear/Loathing and Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive by miles. Mckenzie acts A+

A strong first-half quickly loses steam as Wright decides to fall back on his old zombie bread-and-butter in the guise of an increasingly eye-rolling murder mystery. The sparseness of humor really seems to empty out Wright's singular style and yield nothing more than a hacky Argento-lookalike, only watered down and fixed up with an incredulously happy ending. It always felt like this movie could have been something more, instead it takes a dramatic swing and whiffs spectacularly.

I appreciate Wright doing a “serious” horror film, but the result is sadly flawed. He does a great job at capturing 60's Swinging London with the clubs and marquees, and seems so taken by that world that he delays the horror elements as long as he can. When they finally come, it's pretty average stuff like the CGI ghosts. Maybe he just should have done a proper thriller set in the 60’s instead. Taylor-Joy and Smith have great faces for period films and it was nice to see Stamp and Rigg as well.

Oh, what a missed opportunity. The first two thirds of this are quite brilliant, and the craft is just impeccable. The performances are great, especially from the two female leads.

The writing falls apart in the last act, as it starts resorting more and more on cheap horror tricks, and the ending is laugh out loud ridiculous. It's a fun movie that is worth seeing, but it could have been so much more if it had somewhere better to go.

I went into this without knowing much about it, so I was surprised by all the turns it took. It's not great all the way through but it's always great to watch. The performances and the filmmaking can't be faulted, but the story could have been ironed out a little better.

The story has its ups and downs with a twist that took me by surprise. But the film was elevated by its stylistic visuals and incredible sound design.

Visually beautiful but that's it. Full of unnecessary drama and the plot is non existent. Giallo is not meant to be just pretty colors.

Twisted, strange, messy. Never quite reached the potential it had. I want to say let down by production, but I've no idea what I'm saying so feel free to disregard. A movie I'd have been happy not to see, but a good way to spend two hours. Give it a go.

McKenzie was great in this, but I still felt underwhelmed. Beautifully shot; however, I felt disconnected from it all. A lack of cohesion for me. I enjoyed the first and final third. The middle was too muddled for my taste. 6.2 overall. Worth a one time viewing for fans of the cast and/or Wright as a director.

This had so much potential. First off I like the leads Thomasin McKenzie and Anya Taylor-Joy. The first part with all of the 60's sequences is really well done, and of course the soundtrack is fantastic throughout. It's just everything after that is so generic. The supporting characters are very one dimensional. The plot unfolds in a predictable way. The psychological elements eventually give way to overly generic horror elements. I just feel like this one could have delivered so much more.

Pretty, well-acted, but incredibly trashy plot and lacking Wright's usual commitment to style. Never does enough with the flashback setting.

What a trippy movie. Really liked how the horror started slowly creeping in and how the characters were so deviously alternated with some of the shots. It looks absolutely gorgeous all the time. The colors are crisp, the shadows are deep and there are some beautiful shots here. I think it's just a bit too long and loses some of its charm towards the end. While it doesn't completely drop the ball, it starts out a lot better than it ends up being in general.
