Stupid thriller jumping on a hype train. Cheesy dialogue, bad casting & a predictable story.
I read the description and couldn't bring myself to press play. Movies have been made for ridiculous reasons, but a movie based solely on a meme? Yeah, no.

It's a 1.5hr "quick watch" thankfully.

Just watch the trailer & you're pretty much in tune with the entire film lol

Never heard of it lol.

Tried The Colony (2021), but it was less entertaining that and EFF meeting.

Poignant watch, engrossing story if a little drawn out. As some have said, Humanity vs Economics.

Decent crime thriller with some suspense, ending could have been better.

A few twists and turns, nothing mind-boggling, but combined with good performances all-round and realistic dialogue, it's worth watch.

Engaging black comedy that start off slow but takes off in the 2nd act. Ensemble cast plays well together.

5.5 / 10 for the puzzles. But not enough gore.

Us (2019) 8/10 - Broader, more horror-focused, and richer in metaphor than Get Out. But also not as funny and somewhat unfocused.
