Spoilers... Ending Complete Ruins the Films Logic

Spoilers Ahead, DO NOT CONTINUE!!

Look, it's an interesting film that's an ok way to kill 2 hours. But the ending complete ruins the entire premise of the film.

The mother we believe to be the good mother is actually the "evil" version (who swapped identities in the beginning of the film unbeknownst to the audience).

1. The original premise - that the mother does not remember what happened in the mirror house, is perfectly logical. She has amnesia due to fear. However, the amnesia and fear does not hold up if the mother was the evil version all along. There should be no amnesia and the only reason for it is to deliberately trick the audience.

2. If the mom was the evil version all along, she shouldn't be scared of a "shadow" of herself as she claims. Sure she could be scared (of being revealed to be a fraud by the true her) but not of a shadow. Again, purposeful misleading to set up the twist.

3. Why does the good version go insane and deciude the only way to get revenge on her evil self is to raise an army of evil duplicates that murder their good halves? Again, contrived and makes no sense.

4. Why didn't/ couldn't the good version of the girl use the escalators to escape the evil realm? This really doesn't make sense.

5. How the hell did all of the evil versions have enough food/ water to survive?

6. Surely not every single copy of everyone in the world was stored in the one bunker shown. So how did the "Good" girl convince all of the evil copies (of all the rest of the world) to arise??

There are probably many many MANY more issues with this film. But god does it destroy itself trying way too hard to set up a profound twist that is just completely illogical.

Utter garbage!!

My wife and I went to see this movie and I have to say that it was just a silly movie. The entire plot was unrealistic, and bland. We actually laughed out loud at some of the idiotic scenarios. The fact that Lupita was handcuffed to a coffee table and couldn't move an inch was ridiculous! How heavy was the coffee table? I looked at my coffee table when I got home and shook my head. A child could drag it all over the house! The father was just a soft black man. I'm black and I couldn't believe it when he dropped the bat in the hand of the clone. He limped around the entire movie! Just weak and feeble. Oh and when the family got into the land rover and the daughter actually argues with Lupita about who would drive the vehicle? So in the middle of being chased by crazy clones they actually argue about who would drive? The father had an injured left knee. He could have driven the vehicle but he instead, sets his weak self in the passenger seat. The daughter actually drives the vehicle! So in a desperately dangerous situation a 12 year old girl drives a very capable Land Rover? Utter nonsense. Get Out was far better. Mr. Peele, please go back to the drawing board.

Great idea, questionable execution...

I am torn on whether or not I like the story of Us. Part of me really likes the originality of the idea and the subtle social commentary the film delivers; however, I felt that despite Us having an interesting idea, the execution led to a disjointed story that felt a bit scatterbrained. There were definitely parts of the film that were suspenseful and horrifying, but at the same time, other parts felt too over-explained or tropey. This leads to me having many unanswered questions about certain aspects and feeling like other aspects shouldn't have been explained at all to keep the mystery. I think the story is hard to talk about without spoiling it, but overall, I expected more from Jordan Peele's writing but did enjoy some of it.

Despite my indecisive feelings of the film's story, many pieces of the film were exceptionally well done. One aspect that stood out in Us was the soundtrack and the usage of music. I think the original soundtrack was memorable and used appropriately to accentuate the feeling of horror at some points in the film. On the flip side, the soundtrack was used to perfectly contrast what was going on onscreen. This led to some great sequences (the Beach Boys scene) that utilized the soundtrack in an interesting way. Another part of the film that I really enjoyed was Lupita Nyong'o and the child actors' performances. Nyong'o in particular is the most terrifying part of the film. She plays both a horrific monster and a badass mother, making it easy to forget that the same actor plays them.

As a whole, I think Us is an enjoyable horror film that has some missteps with its story elements and structure. I would recommend this film to horror fans, but don't go into the film expecting anything like Get Out.
