Thanks for the heads up!

I missed this in theaters, so I'm looking forward to checking this out during my Holiday Break.

This has gotten wildly varying reviews, but I enjoyed it enough. I'm a sucker for Tom Ripley-esque protagonists and scenes of people living in unthinkable luxury. It's pulpy dark fun, though, rather than any sort of insightful satire with anything deep to say, though. I did think Keoghan, Elordi and Pike were all excellent, though, although I could've done with a LITTLE less of Barry's Barry if you know what I mean. Still, I don't feel it's the abomination some online are claiming it is, but I liked its nasty little bite.

Agree. I felt a Ripley vibe immediately from the trailer so I was anxious to see it. It's a great film with excellent performances all around. But definitely not for everyone. Uncomfortable at times, dark, wicked, funny, and even disgusting. I can definitely see some people turning it off after one or two scenes.

You know, I'm mildly surprised to see how quickly this took over the number 2 spot from Sound of Freedom on Amazon Prime (which they seemed to advertise ad nauseum on their Fire TV platform). I guess it's a very big hit among the TikTok crowd.

(Reacher series remains #1)

^ The same crowd has also caused "Murder on the Dancefloor" to re-enter music charts after 22 years. Sophie Ellis-Bextor was not well known in America. I'd never heard of her or the song before watching this movie, but it is a catchy dance tune. New Radicals (former) frontman Gregg Alexander co-wrote it.

I enjoyed this until the ending.
Spoiler:
I'm sick of twists with a genius mastermind who orchestrated the worlds most elaborate plan and executed it perfectly

I normally love me a twist ending but this landed with a thud. It rendered almost all that came before it pointless. Just felt cheap and off-putting.

Same here. Id rank it as a B solely for the twist. It wasnt hard to put some of it together and it would have been an A in my book had they left it slightly ambiguous.

Saw this also. Good watch on Prime and may have been slightly disappointed if I paid to see it in the theater.

The twist definitely cheapened the story as a whole.

Id actually love to see it with an unsuspecting audience.

The audience I saw it with seemed very bored. No indication anyone was scandalized.

Plenty of funny reactions on TikTok. Especially the shower scene.

This flick felt like it was made by a film school dropout. I can't believe they went with that ending as well - only a moron would need that spelled out for them.

Just a sloppy, stupid, movie.

I watched this with no idea what it was about... and really enjoyed it until the end. Spelling it out wasn't necessary and I found it completely unlikely that nobody would intervene with Oliver as the obvious mastermind. Overall a B+ though for the visuals and the chances it took.
