Poorly scripted joke of a horror. Don't give in to the hype.
Hey, this movie have actually done it! And I can't think of anything that did it before this one - it managed to be totally supportive on black/white racial equality by being equally insulting to both white and black people! Really, if someone told me the whole story of this before I watched it I would react exactly like the cops in this movie.
Seriously, this flick looks like it was filmed with just a draft of a script and I wouldn't even call it a horror. It is unoriginal and rather ridiculous than frightening. Don't waste your time - it's the most valuable resource you have!
PS: It honestly sickens me to even think that, but I have a slight notion it has such high ratings because of the racial angle of the production. Which is sad actually, because I don't believe people of minorities make worse anything as a rule, which means their works need not to be given any undeserved praise - that is not what equality means, people, that is actually a bad, harmful idea - if, say, a movie is praised as good - or even best like Moonlight - just because of some misguided parity sense - in other words, just because it was made mostly by minority members, and apart from that it is, like Moonlight or Ida,mediocre at best, then it harms the minority more than it helps it. It's simple - if you do anything and you are objectively not best in it, or you suck at it even, but everyone around you tells you, that what you do is awesome, then you don't have any incentive to try harder and be better.
It can even be a source of deep frustration as you can sometimes tell that you're getting undeserved praise, like from a overbearing parent, and deep down you know it is not sincere and something else entirely stands behind it. Like some politics that don't concern you personally as a creator.
If my work was praised no matter how bad it was just because of my color, beliefs or ethnicity, I know I would not be happy or satisfied with it. Also such practices make room for unethical creators who will see that picking up a specific set of topics for their works will automatically allow them to get ahead of any competition just because the topic is politically desired to be shown in certain context rather than the quality of the work itself. It's damaging and demoralizing.
