Get Out Review


It's time for a young African American to meet with his white girlfriend's parents for a weekend in their secluded estate in the woods, but before long, the friendly and polite ambience will give way to a nightmare.

Get Out (2017) is a 2h 10 min rated R American horror film that was shot in Alabama, USA and contained gore, violence, bad language, and suggestive sexual content. Writer and first-time director Jordan Peele (Keanu (2016), MADtv (2003-2008), Key and Peele (2012-2015)) did an incredible job on his movie about racism. Peele left his audience in a reality shock where most was left thinking about how our world has a lot of work left to do to solve human issues of equality. He infused the topic racism with his signature satirical wit and horrific tales leaving us with a bold and outrageously funny movie.

Get Out revolves around city boy photographer Chris (Daniel Kaluuya - Sicario (2015), Johnny English Reborn (2011), Kick-Ass 2 (2013), Welcome to the Punch (2013)) and his girlfriend Rose. Chris went with Rose (Allison Williams - Girls (2012-2017), Peter Pan Live! (2014)) to meet her parent at their country estate although he was a bit apprehensive about meeting her parents since Rose is white and he is black. Rose father Dean (Bradley Whitford - The West Wing (1999-2006), The Cabin in the Woods (2012), Scent of a Woman (1992), Saving Mr. Banks (2013)) and mother Missy welcomes Chris. Chris was shocked that things were going well but could not help thinking that there was something weird about the estate workers as they showed odd behaviors.

Chris started to feel out of place and assured his feelings after meeting another black man at one of Roes’s parent’s party where the other black man warns/told him to get out, but he cannot figure out what is wrong. The movie took a turn from being dark comedy to an unsettling twisted horror. Peele’s message was seen from the beginning to the ending of the film as his powerful thought-provoking message is telling our people to wake up because racism is still at large. Get Out is not for everyone as some may find it intruding but it is a movie that sheds light on racism in a way that most people will understand. With all said, I would recommend this film to everyone because it was beautifully made with little mishaps that are easily overseen.
