Nope movie review - Encounters in the Third Phase


Jordan Peele's Nope is one of the most interesting horror movies of this year. He masterfully crafts this sci fiction, horror combo with a subtle message which always is the case with his movies. Don't be fooled by what you are about to see and it may not be the movie you think you're going to get. It has a quest for originality and surprise that can be very interesting.


The story starts with a strange death and OJ (Played brilliantly by Daniel Kaluuya) and his sister (Keke Palmer) takes over the Horse Ranch in a remote California valley which is their family business running in loses. They witness a disturbing discovery one day and try to profit from that with the help of few friends. But things go haywire and survival becomes the priority.


Tracked down to hypnotizing and stunning visuals shots with exhilarating BGM, the final act of the hunt is a fascinating and a terrifying one. I was checking with few of my friend about the movie and none of them liked it. Its expected as this divides the film's audience. The film has a very slow start and takes time to reveal whats in store but you keep invested in the characters. Pelee continues to surprise you while keeping the tension paramount. It will be in my top 10 Hollywood films of 2022.


verdict - 3.5/5(A workmanship)
