Get Out is, without question, one of the best movies to come out this year. However, that doesn't mean the movie is by any means perfect. A new video takes a closer look and does find a few flaws. If there are any problems with Get Out, CinemaSins will find out. Check out the video below to learn everything wrong with GetOut.
The short answer to what's wrong with Get Out, is "not a lot." Overall, CinemaSins is as complementary of the racially based horror movie as everybody else was when it hit theaters earlier this year, the film still only has two negative reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. The film's remarkable method of storytelling earns it the removal of several sins over the course of the video, at a couple of points, three at a time. That's not to say the movie is by any means perfect. It gets dinged here and there for falling into genre tropes, something that horror movies are especially guilty of doing.
There are a few additional points that the video brings up that are probably worthy of discussion. Considering the purpose of the party, the fact that they brought Andre Hayworth, or at least his body, to the event was probably a big mistake considering that it could very well make Chris suspicious. The fact that Rose even found Chris, considering the way she apparently does research, is a bit suspect, as is the fact that she heard the action in the front yard, while not hearing what was going on downstairs, while wearing earbuds, is a fair point, and something we didn't really notice at the time.
While these criticisms are valid, they're far from major. Beyond them, however, the rest of the film's faults come in the realm of continuity errors and nitpicking details, which, while funny or interesting, don't really detract from the film in any real way. Certainly, the air conditioning turning on and off and on again over the course of three shots is a valid error, and worthy of sin, but even if you noticed that when you watch the movie, it probably didn't impact your overall experience.
In the final analysis Get Out is left with 79 sins, which is a remarkably small number for a full-length feature film. CinemaSins regularly goes over 100 sins with their videos these days so the small number shows that even those who make a living being critical have to admit that Get Out is a better movie than most. There's a reason CinemaBlend thinks it's the best movie of the year so far. Jordan Peele has become one of the hottest directors in Hollywood and this movie is every reason why.
