Since she had a traumatic experience on a theme park as a child on vacation, Adelaide Wilson (Lupita Nyong'o) avoids this place - until she is persuaded by her husband Gabe (Winston Duke) to spend a relaxing day there with her children and friends. But this turns the family holiday on the North Californian coast into a nightmare, when four figures appear in front of the holiday home in the evening, who look like the Wilsons in a disturbing way. And the eerie doppelgangers seem to know only one goal: to wipe out the family completely. For Adelaide and her loved ones, a bloody struggle for survival begins that takes an unexpected turn…
"We" is the highly anticipated sequel to Jordan Pele's surprise hit "Get out". Peele has also remained true to the horror genre here, which he once again mixes with a socially critical message. "We" is exciting, a little more bloody than "Get out", and especially in the last third very ambitious. Maybe a little too much. Because as a viewer you have to get involved with something very abstruse in order to recognize and appreciate the message the movie tries to convey. And not everyone will be able to do that. This may also be due to the fact that many questions remain unanswered and not everything is explained in detail. This makes the ending on the one hand more effective, but on the other hand makes the movie more difficult to access.
No question: Jordan Peele manages perfectly to build up an eerie, oppressive atmosphere, which makes "We" an effective horror thriller, especially in the first hour. Even before there are explanations that put the finger on an unpleasant wound in our society, the film simply offers exciting goose bumps entertainment. The Wilson's doppelganger versions are extremely scary, which is also due to the great play of all the actors...
The rest of the film will be a divorce. For some, the whole thing will be too abstruse, too lengthy and too thickly applied. For the others, a masterpiece of modern horror cinema that focuses attention on the forgotten of our society in a haunting way. Either way, you have to attest to Jordan Peele, that he delivered a really good movie, that not only entertains well and offers some good shocking moments, but also makes you think. And that's exactly why "We", despite some minor weaknesses, is also: Absolutely worth seeing!
