    As with Get Out, I came into Us after the initial hype and release had been and gone, and subsequently feared it couldn't be as good as I hoped in both cases.

    And in both cases I was wrong. Us is a funny, sinister tale filled with hypnotic acting, shots, and musical choices.

    Lupita Nyong'o absolutely owns this film in her dual roles. Props to Winston Duke though for providing the comic relief.

    ★½

    Genuine improvements:

    Ray Fisher's Cyborg chief among characters getting time to be more than plot points.

    Some of the retouched CG is definitely better.

    Actually tees up a decent prospect for a sequel.

    Otherwise, this is a wholly noisy collection of gaudy screensavers given sentience. The opening hour is utterly painful, bordering on parody. Steppenwolf remains a vanilla villain with added sprinkles. The music choices are dire (ending on fucking Hallelujah), and the incessant use of slow-mo made me feel every minute of these four hours.

    Same bad film, just longer, and sometimes prettier.
