The first two thirds are sci-fi horror at its best. Peele is like early Shyamalan or Spielberg in how he shows families impacted by a genre idea. But, starting with the ending setup, his worst qualities come into focus. Bad jokes. Ideas that lack follow through. And poor cinematic storytelling: especially in character motivation and nighttime photography. He is getting better with music, though. Still, if you see it at a theatre, it's a nice escape from the heat. Marginal recommendation.

Nope is a very original film that could have benefitted from tighter pacing and clearer character motivations. While their choices work thematically, we don't know them enough so their fatal flaws look a bit too ridiculous. It is worth the watch, and is very well made.

I enjoyed the heck out of it. I liked how Peele presented all of the themes he tried to hit and found the “thing” working against the protagonists to feel fresh yet old-fashioned at the same time. Gonna be honest… The chimpanzee part was the scariest thing in the whole movie to me. Otherwise, I thought the movie was still delightfully creepy and really well shot. The nighttime stuff especially looked amazing. Loved Kaluuy and Palmer both. Everything just worked really well for me.

At the halfway mark, after a very dull start, I thought I would recommend people just skip the first half entirely. After seeing the rest, I recommend just skipping the entire film. "Hey guys, I have an idea for something shitty we can make during COVID lockdown!"

It honestly boggles the mind how the same dude who gave us Get Out less than 6 years ago has started buying into his own hype so fast, he's already on his way of becoming the next Shyamalan. Whatever commentary you're trying to make with your film ends up lost when not coupled to a strong story and compelling, fleshed-out characters you actually care about.

I guess i just don't get Jordan Peele. Get Out was decent but no more than that, Us was a big budget mediocre Twilight Zone episode, and now we have Nope, which is like the Happening but not as unintentionally hilarious. I like Kaluuya usually but here he just looks permanently bored, as if he was watching his scenes as he acted in them. Palmer is poor and often annoying on screen, and while Yeun actually does well, his screen time is short and inclusion kinda pointless. Nope, I didn't like this

I've seen Jordan Peele compared to M. Night Shyamalan on more than one occasion now, and I think it's an unfortunately prescient observation. Each movie's budget is more unwieldy than the last, but I'm not sure he's actually getting better as a storyteller. There are moments of brilliance here! Taken as a whole, though, it just doesn't feel like the product of a particularly distinct or earnest artistic vision. Sometimes, you just gotta throw some shit and hope the beast will eat it.

Nope feels like an attempt to overly differentiate itself from Peele’s previous work. To it’s credit, the first 90 minutes of this movie sets up some really interesting ideas. Unfortunately, I feel a lot of these ideas are not fulfilled or unnecessary to the overall arch. Like I said, it seems Peele really tried to do something different, but doing so it feels kinda hollow. It’s disappointing because I see the potential in here, but it fails to capture me the way I was hoping for.

Jordan Peele has done it again. He has taken flawed characters and put them in the most unlikely situations and made you sit on the edge of your seat. It was crazy, it was emotional, it was comedic. Peele fully immerses you in this crazy thrill ride. Kaluuya is amazing as the quiet and hard working OJ. Palmer is a great counter part to his character. There are a few twists and turns as well that make Nope the most fun film of 2022. Brilliant movie.

Before the movie I saw a trailer for some goofy movie where Idris Elba is chased by/battles a lion. Turned out to pretty nicely foreshadow this movie. Some interesting enough mood setting, lore building and dark laughs in the first couple acts culminate in a goofball climactic sequence that’s basically a third-rate killer animal chase movie ala a Jaws sequel. I understand there’s some deeper themes/commentary at play too, but I’ll level with you: i dont care

I am terrified of chimpanzees more than UFOs, I don't know what a UFO would do but I know what a chimp can do and I wash my hands of it! Peele listening to the Travis the Chimp 911 phone call and just tucking it away for later use. This is very well shot, it's nice to finally see something good. Movies really suck lately.

You'll be saying "yep" after you leave the theatre. Yep is a positive affirmation towards the quality of this film. It is clearly inspired by the genre, but manages to create some incredibly novel moments. The Gordy scenes are some of the most terrifying I have seen in film recently. Like what Stranger Things did for Kate Bush, I hope this film does for "Sunglasses at Night".

Nope has the hook of an alien invasion movie along the lines of Close Encounters of the Third Kind or The War of the Worlds—which influence prevails, of course, depends on the visitors’ intentions. Yet it takes off in several unpredictable thematic directions at once, and the elusive messiness makes its ideas feel explored rather than predigested. It’s the alien at the summer multiplex in more ways than one.

Do yourself a favour and see this shit in your biggest IMAX. Movie is an absolute treat and one of the best "Summer" movies of all time. Endlessly intriguing, funny, mysterious, shocking, transfixing. I have a few small issues with parts of the 3rd act but by the end, you'll still be floored. Steven Yeun's character's backstory is something else. Peele's macabre blending chops are still very evident and stronger than ever, adding in this fresh and exhilarating adventure film tone to the mix.

Its pacing feels sluggish throughout, and when you combine that with a script that has more subtext than plot points, it makes it difficult to get into the unique sci-fi thrills despite great turns, visuals, and sound design. Still, the rich and fascinating themes (Hollywood spectacle and its connections to money-making, animal treatment, and the Black experience) and many fun details of the UFO-B-movie/creature feature/neo-western vibes keep it flying around in your head well after the credits.

The power of Peele's "Get Out" was that it's both an "idea" movie with heavy subtext and also a quite good horror/thriller, which makes the subtext more subtle. Here, we have an idea on Hollywood's voyeuristic death machine that's also racist etc., which is very forced and not dissolved into the narrative enough. The narrative itself can't deliver a strong thriller or horror anyways. Also, isn't it the reverse; Hollywood doesn't "look" at the black subject at all anyways? And why UFOs? Nope.

Its layers of allusion and commentary are so varied and many that I left the theatre experiencing flashbacks to high school English class, fearing I was going too far in my speculation - but I don’t think I was. Nope is slow, but rewarding in its finale; horrific, but full of great comic timing; in your face, but subtle. A conflicting but largely positive experience, beautifully shot and sound-designed.

I didn't want this to be a miss, and it isn't... fully. Therein lies the motif of my feelings - this isn't a full miss but it's obviously FAR from a full hit. Peele's penchant for "concept over narrative" has gone nuclear, leaving a movie with some obvious strengths, and glaring weaknesses in how it tells (or doesn't tell) its story. Metaphor is wonderful when it's earned, and grounded in the talented telling of a good story. When metaphor IS the story, it's a thin path to walk. Maybe too thin.

This ruled! More so than any of Peele's works to date, Nope emphasizes the horror in the unexplained. There's one scene in particular that's so indelibly nightmarish and unsettlingly mysterious that it is surely seared into my brain forever. The cast all knock it out of the park, and I freaking love what Michael Abels gets to do with his score in this, too.

Leans far more traditionally satirical than his previous two efforts, I would almost call this a sort of disguised parody in the way its overarching themes work to undress the genre its costumed in. It wasn't totally engaging but I do find this new, almost Hanekeian, manipulative side of Peele's direction welcoming.

“Oh my God it’s TMZ.” Seeing this in a theater of industry people is too much everyone nodded a little too knowingly at Gordy. I appreciated the unique, askew angle Peele approached the setting, pacing, and iconography. van Hoytema’s expertise is deeply felt, and it has possibly the best sound design of the year, telling the story in fits of silence and otherworldly borborygmus. Peele is a master of symbols - think of a girl’s shoe uncannily upright, a party hat - and he’s only getting better.

Too many ideas and no real focus. It could have been a chilling ’Monkey Madness’ horror, or an original 'Aliens with a twist' sci-fi. Instead, both are cramped in (I chose this wording because they don’t really mix) with a third concept, and this is probably where the experienced Studio head should have sent Peele back to the drawing board: Shy guy on a horse fights evil with flags. Michael Wincott films.

Perhaps Peele’s least meaty thematically to date but still very dense. The filmmaking, however, is his best to date, with fantastic photography and pacing and so many striking set-pieces. Succeeds phenomenally as his first blockbuster while also not skimping on everything that made the others work, from the layered scripts to the wonderful humour to the great use of music to the excellent performances. Go see it on a big-ass screen.

Haha. A flying saucer parachute monster with super ridiculous animations. The acting was great. The story was sometimes fun and engaging, but there is so much wrong with this movie that I don't even know where to start. It didn't really get stupid until a little more than 3/4 of the way in. I'll just say it was barely worth watching, and totally laughable at the same time. The laughable graphics at the end totally ruined it.

Weird and not enjoyable. The start is fine, as it sets up a good mood with enough questions. Then it deteriorates quite badly with so much silliness that it seems more like a parody than a horror movie. The final "home alone" style setup was really bizarre and sucked all the life out of me. Get Out was far better.

High-concept, symbol-heavy, Peele produces a weird Bergman-does-Spielberg sort of movie. Though this is his best effort thus far, with legitimately innovative ideas, great soundtrack (e.g., see the inclusion of Exuma) and, at times, jaw-dropping cinematography, Peele really needs to give the task of scriptwriting to someone else. The uneven pacing, the overacted quirk-i-ful characters, the nonsensical character-decisions, all take away from the depth and novelty of what Peele is exploring.

It was when I saw ALIENS, some three decades before the release of this film, that I had the idea that “film theory placement” may in fact be a Hollywood marketing strategy. Something of that kind seems to be going on here, with success if judged by critical approval. But if you wish to see a movie about the monster who insists on looking, then better to re-watch LA DOLCE VITA. Palmer’s “Em” is painfully grating, and in general it all falls terribly flat: not scary, or funny, or interesting.

Feels a bit more underbaked than Peele's previous two films, but viewed as a simple little UFO horror tale, it's fine, even if the biggest (and arguably only real) scare in it, comes from a midnight barn fake-out rather than the ominous big bad. (speaking of: props for the original monster design)

Peele can direct. Acting is decent. Visually, I have no complaint. As TheRealJ-Ro says, it's concept over narrative and I can't say that any better. Heavy symbolism hides sloppy storytelling. Peele was always in danger of that and here he realizes it. Uneven pacing. Some plot points and dialogue... corny. Gordy part is the only time it hits the beats it wants to and it's not even a necessary element. Just feels so disjointed and even lazy at times. Doesn't commit fully to anything really.

Certainly taught and suspenseful for the majority of the runtime, but the third act, for me, loses most of the tension, and transforms what was built up as an intriguing horror mystery into a fairly generic sci-fi climax. The Gordy subplot worked very well thematically, but narratively I expected it to tie in better with the primary story. The acting was great and the eventual reveal was interesting, I just wish it had been more consistent with Peele's knack for seriously chilling horror.

While it was a really fun time and we’ll-constructed as a popcorn alien invasion thriller, Nope doesn’t sink its teeth into its themes as much as Peele’s previous two films do, making the experience enjoyable but a little unsatisfying on a first viewing. The themes about consumption of media and the pursuit of spectacle are there, but they aren’t nearly as well realized as either Get Out or Us. There were a lot of things I wasn’t expecting though, so it’s still very much worth experiencing.

striking visuals with an intentionally unspectacular narrative (until werner herzog type enters the picture) create an appealing contrast for what seems to be the film's politics. but the way film works well on paper doesn't translate into film. the indifference of kaluuya's character towards everything, for instance, helps to address the fascination and boredom with the commodified spectacularity but it just doesn't make it interesting as a film. more of a smth-to-talk-about than to watch.

How we as an audience interact with violence we see on screen. Peele has such a keen eye for shot composition. Unsure the ending works but still v fun

Nope starts with a mysterious and ominous vibe, leaving the viewer to guess what kind of threat the characters are dealing with, captivating and hooking by using curiosity as a foundation. This magic is lost entirely in the 2nd half of the movie, leaving a plain and weird comedy thriller with western elements, a mix that nullifies the great introduction of mystery.

As bumpy as this feels, I just can't help but love Peele's moody vibes towards characters defined -- although not programmed -- by trauma. A film that tackles anything it wants -- misrepresentation of black people on film and in cinema history, for example -- so relentless. It's all about getting the Oprah shot, and Peele does that with nearly every perfectly timed comic bit, western imagery populating these weird interactions with the unknown and horror coming in beautifully -- blood rain, wow.

We definitely need innovations when it comes to movies. Nope introduces us to a weird, outlandish concept, and just not knowing what the thing is or how it works is what keeps up the suspense.

Ace cinematography and originality, it's a very promising and funny first half - i loved how the narrative kept getting derailed and distracted by pretty unimportant (?) stuff. Reminded me of Tarantino a little bit, who is a (bigger) master of this. Unfortunately i got a little bored in the monster chase part, which literally takes 1 hour. Still looks cool, but it left me pretty cold and uninterested whether they'd make it- more should have been done with this premise. Keke Palmer very good.

It does feel like it could be a bit shorter, and it’s a bit lacking in scares. But it’s still very unique, like Peele’s other films thus far, and has arguably the scariest antagonist from him (just imagining that in real life…yeah, nope). Great performances, Brandon Perea’s Angel was a surprisingly enjoyable character. I would also echo the sentiment of the chimpanzee scene being the most frightening. It’s not for everyone, but I appreciate it for its originality.

Nope is as original, unrealistic and subtextey as his first two films. It's also very messy. The pacing is off. The message is garbled. It does not adhere to its own rules. It's also hard to care about what happens because the characters are barely there or unlikeable. Kaluuya seems to play a robot for most of the film. Of course the film is also mysterious, genuinely creepy and completely outlandish. I'm looking forward to Peele's next film already.

Basically a tutorial for how to malfunction a flying vacuum cleaner. If the intention is to make fun of horror/sci-fi movies, than it's very good at it. Otherwise I am not convinced with the character's motivations of taking UFO images for Oprah. Yep, it is as stupid as it sounds. They are risking their lives for taking a photo of flying saucer and we are supposed to feel excited about that. Though given that the set-up was rather boring, it's sensible that they needed some heat in their lives.

Mixed feelings about this: Peele is a rare original filmmaker working with bigger budgets, and he did find new angles to an old genre. Some scenes were very good, but I didn't think it worked that well as a whole; I get the idea for the Jupe storyline, but it still felt unnecessary, as did the cinematographer character. It also didn't need to be 130mins. Kaluuya's introverted character was nice variation to the usual hero, and it was nice to see old pros David and Wincott on the big screen.

Movies about aliens tend to have this end-of-humanity vibe to them. This one is unlike any of them. The movie is hard to bracket - Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller - all would be good ways to put it.

I disliked "Us" so intensely that I really did not expect to like this, but I'm very pleased to say that I liked it quite a lot. It feels like a huge step forward for Peele. The themes don't feel like they're pulling the horse here. Although there's a consistent theme about the exploitation of dangerous animals for prophet and entertainment running through the film, the film works as a solid genre outing even if you don't notice them.

For me, this is Peele's best yet. Through evocative and layered images, it weaves in themes of the racialization of the aesthetic without ever being conclusive or didactic. With this movie, Peele himself seems to be saying "nope"--enacting the same refusal of flattening, simplification, and objectification that the film's characters do. Excellent performances, especially by Kaluuya and Yeun, subtle yet terrifying special effects, plus it's funny and fun to watch.

I probably should give Peele more credit for injecting social commentary in an entertaining flick, but I was left underwhelmed at the depth of Nope's themes, just as I was with Get Out. Acting was eh, cinematography and music were good.

No doubt, Jordan Peele is a great filmmaker. This sci-fi comedy has a great twist and unusual setting and characters.

Enjoyable throughout--lots of good horror laughter for me, except for the chimp stuff, which was just plain horrific. But this movie does seem to be something of a thematic hodgepodge--lots of interesting ideas, just not sure how well it holds together. Love the scene of Kaluuya in the truck--so well done.

My favorite Jordan Peele movie so far. I thought the premise was cool, the tension is expertly built up, and the cinematography was great with a number of very memorable images and sequences.

The film seems like a loosely connected series of incredible moments. But it's not. Loosely connected I mean, the moments are surely incredible. There is much more under the surface of Nope and it's all Yeppp. Keke Palmer was fantastic and I don't remember another creature design more beautiful than this. Pure weird filmmaking.

I don't think I liked it as much as some of Peele's other, darker and more subversive works, but once it gets going, the film hits hard on multiple fronts - from a love letter to classic Hollywood effects, to an exploration of the human fascination with spectacle. It's beautifully shot and the last third is a wild ride. I also liked some of the understated performances from a cast who isn't full of big name stars. A worthy addition to what is becoming an impressive director filmography.

I know I've seen a good movie, but at the moment I don't know exactly how or where to classify it.

Its various themes (modern media, filmmaking, animals, and black history, etc.) do not mingle together. Its protagonists and "antagonist" (I am not referring to that thing in the sky) do not look fundamentally different to me, critically weakening its allegory. It's unbelievably dull for Peele's work. Yet, it makes me feel like I'm seeing something seriously weird and original. And yeah that freaking chimp.

If you're going in expecting an UFO movie expect to be disappointed. As a horror movie about humanity's tendency to always poke the bear instead of letting it lie, it does its job. There's so much subtext that I bet I didn't get half of it, but at least it was enjoyable and had an exciting climax. Probably could have been better, but I'm okay with the movie in its current state.
