Nope is one of the great movies about moviemaking, about the moral and spiritual implications of cinematic representation itself—especially the representation of people at the center of American society who are treated as its outsiders. It is an exploitation film—which is to say, a film about exploitation and the cinematic history of exploitation as the medium’s very essence.
Should be appreciated on the biggest screen possible. A real cinema experience. Peele’s NOPE is like A. Night Shamalyan’s Unbreakable- at his best that is - wonderfully atmospheric, grandiose cinematography and superb pacing. I loved it.
Director Jordan Peele is one of those who take everything seriously and go for the new. This western-fiction-horror hybrid is like a delicately made delicacy and must be eaten slowly to recognize its flavor. It's a lot of effort but it's worth it. One of the biggest surprises of the year.
The movie is a bit long, and the culmination overstays its welcome. That is the only section of the movie where the viewer is a step ahead — and therefore it doesn’t sizzle like what came before. Yet the visual splendor of the sequence also proves the director has a flair for the epic we didn’t know about before. And that makes me all the more excited for the next “Untitled Jordan Peele Project.
It would be unsporting to say more but, simply put, there are moments of unalloyed terror (juxtaposed with a crowd-pleasing giddiness) that make Nope worth not just seeing on the big screen but with as huge a crowd as possible.
Nope has also already had some critics throwing out less than favorable M. Night Shyamalan references. But it is full of vibrant life, too. It goes a long way in forgiving the reveal, which I’d even argue is beside the point. This is a film that offers a lot to chew on, which is more than most big summer spectacles can promise.
No me decepcionó de ninguna forma, pero tampoco me impactó de la misma forma que Get Out y Us, sin embargo, cumple con ser exactamente lo que promete ser, un espectáculo. Extrañé el giro de tuerca de toda la vida, no hizo falta, solo era la costumbre .
Made in 2022, it is a movie that contains suspense, horror and sci-fi elements. Yes, there is a lot of nonsense. Yes, the element of fear is almost absent. But the movie is watched with interest. I can't say I was bored for 2 hours. But I can say that it ended with a very funny finale. At first, I thought that the monkey at the beginning of the movie was killing people as aliens brutalizing animals, but it turned out it had nothing to do with it. But really the most impressive scene was the monkey scene. And when I thought the red balloon was a human head, I thought it was more scary. It was nice to have the cloud still. I wish they hadn't opened that flying creature like a torn curtain. The movie can be enjoyed with the family.
There are no nudity or sexually explicit scenes in the movie.
Being a fan of both 'Us' and 'Get Out', I was very disappointed with 'Nope' after finally watching it recently. For starters, the total runtime should have been cut down by 40 minutes being that it is a 2 hour movie. I found myself extremely bored most of the time but I ended up pushing forward to see who the antagonist is at the end. I was also curious to see why Daniel Kaluuya was looking 'up' in the movie cover photo and my theory was actually correct after barely making it to the final part of the film. 'Nope' did not capture my attention like 'Us' and 'Get Out' did so I will have to give this film a solid 'Nope'.
