Poster for Nope

Oscar winner Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Keke Palmer (Hustlers) and Oscar nominee Steven Yeun (Minari) lead the third film from Academy Award-winning filmmaker Jordan Peele. More

Set in a lonely gulch in inland California, this sci-fi horror centres on two siblings (Kaluuya and Palmer) who own a ranch together. Discovering something mysterious in the sky, they set about trying to document it - but this proves more spectacular (and deadly) than they could have imagined.

Even a mediocre Jordan Peele film is better than the strongest film of an ordinary director. Nope is that mediocre film.

Nope, enjoyable as a spectacle but conceptually barely thought through, is all over the place.

Nope may not be Jordan Peele's best movie to date, but it is his most enjoyable.

(Nope) confirms the mojo of the Jordan Peele brand. But it also confirms that making movies with too much chaos and sprawl is threatening to become part of that brand.

The film’s fantastical meta-commentaries don’t completely cohere but have a winning go-for-it audaciousness.

Peele’s characters keep watching the skies even at their peril, unable to tear their eyes away. You’ll know the feeling.
