A24 presents “AMONG US”….. Wait no, I’m sorry. I mean, A24 presents “Bodies Bodies Bodies!” C’mon, I had to. We’ve got a zillennial whodunnit on our hands. However, is it good? Is it fun? Is it bloody? Do the ladies who love Pete Davidson get to watch him for 1 and a half hours? LET’S FIND OUT!
“When a group of rich 20-somethings plan a hurricane party at a remote family mansion, a party game turns deadly in this fresh and funny look at backstabbing, fake friends, and one party gone very, very wrong.”
This may very well be the first movie that makes me feel older than I want to feel. On one end, damn was this fun and engaging. It’s a fkn trainwreck from beginning to end. So there’s no denying the fun that comes with this flick. On the other side, holy hell did some of this back and forth jargon make my head spin, lmao. Between not believing the youngins actually speak like this (maybe?) and how god damn unbearable it was to listen to this. I was ready for the killer to go off on this squad. Damn near everyone is almost unlikeable and I was sitting there waiting to find out who the killer was to revel in their horror driven desires.
Jokes aside, these actors kill it (puns intended). From the top to the bottom, everyone brings their unique spin to each character and presents them full of life and personality, despite how unlikeable they may be. This squad is surely one to keep an eye out for as they are only going to get bigger and bigger, as if they aren’t already in some cases. Especially that Lee Pace guy, he’s surely to become something big. 👀👀👀
The whodunnit vibe runs wild here and it’s much to the compliments of many of the characters being so unlikeable in their own ways. Everyone seems to have a solid motive to become the killer and also not. Who actually is the killer I believe will shock everyone. I personally love the finale. Maybe you won’t, maybe you will? Regardless, spend some time at the movies. It’s a fun one.
