Not my favorite Villenueve, but it’s certainly his most disturbing. Great story on display with amazing characters. A tough watch for sure.
Very powerful and disturbing. It leaves you speechless.
Possibly the most incredible film I've ever seen. The story evokes the grandiosity, intensity, and power of a greek tragedy. One of the best
It’s a great movie. The twist is unexpected!
It's slow, but portrays a civil war environment perfectly.The ending has enough convenience to do the plot twist, but it's still a good film
A truly devastating masterpiece from Villeneuve & a real sign of what was to follow from him. As good as it gets. Unflinching & chilling.
A monster piece of cinema. A twist that will break you.
Dark and shocking, great use of Radiohead.
Denis Villeneuve knows how to tell a story. This movie really grabs you and gets interested. If you liked prisoners you will like this.
Good movie in the beginning but the end is just unreasonable, doesn't add u.
