Nope ★★½

I recognize the technical craftmanship involved, and I believe Jordan Peele is proving himself capable of truly memorable sequences and arresting images. But the characters have so little to do and the screenplay feels both padded and very artificial in how characters move from one plot point to the next. You can see the gears turning behind the screen, in service of a metaphor and a subtext that are interesting, but completely take over a screenplay that is built around them. Get Out and Us were about characters. This feels retro-engineered for everything to support the subtext and the (spectacular) third act, and that cannot carry a whole movie.
