Brandon Katz
The New York Observer
"Thanks to a smart script and great performances from the main cast-notably a prowess-unlocked Lupita Nyong'o and a wonderfully loose Winston Duke-Us is both laugh out loud hilarious and disturbingly eerie all at one"  POS

"[A] thrilling exploration of the past and oppression this country (...) [Peele] has given audiences the material to think, to feel our way through some of the darker sides of the human condition (…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 4)"  POS

Yolanda Machado
The Wrap
"It's where Peele cements his place as one of the best horror creators of our time, knowing that life's true horror stems from what humans are capable of doing to each other."  POS

Emily Yoshida
Vulture
"[It] feels like something meant to be watched over and over until the tape wears down, and we graft our own meaning and nightmares onto it."  POS

Justin Chang
Los Angeles Times
"A 'tour de force' of comic tension and visceral release, a movie that weaponizes our chuckles against us and reminds us that laughing, screaming and thinking are not mutually exclusive pleasures."  POS

Trace Thurman
Bloody Disgusting
"A superb sophomore outing for Peele. Blending humor and scares with some amazing actors and fantastically tense home invasion set pieces, it comes strongly recommended (…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS
United StatesUnited States Film School Rejects "Peele has quickly become the horror genre’s equivalent of event cinema; it’s going to be fun watching general audiences discuss and digest this one for months to come."  POS

David Crow
Den of Geek
"[It] is more horrific and ambitious than 'Get Out' and one of the most evocative horror movies in memory.…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Ryan Oliver
The Playlist
"[It] will be looked back in retrospect as prophetic. As it stands now, it’s fascinating, a little maddening, and entertaining."  POS

Peter Debruge
Variety
"This sinister domain offers a visual allegory for the darker aspects of our own socialization — which, if the film were more successful in its final stretch, would force us to confront the monsters within each of us."  NEU

John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
"An often terrifying thriller (...) Clearly the work of an ambitious writer/director (...) It offers twists and ironies and false endings galore — along with more laughs than [Peele's debut film]."  POS
United StatesUnited States M
Richard Whittaker
Austin Chronicle
"'Us' is excellence of execution – or rather, the best version imaginable of a script that feels underdone, and occasionally overwrought (...) A step forward for Peele the filmmaker, and a step back for Peele the storyteller."  NEU
United StatesUnited States M
Eric Kohn
IndieWire
"It gives audiences exactly what they want by delivering what they least expect (...) The relentless pace won’t let you catch your breath (...) [It has] visual sophistication to spare"  POS

Randall Colburn
AV Club
"[It] is thrilling, creepy, and kind of a mess (...) As a horror movie, it’s deeply satisfying (...) 'Us' is something of a frustrating watch, a visual and technical marvel that just doesn’t seem to know what it is"  NEU
