this thing with isolated islands and people stuck there, for them to find the clue to escape alive is becoming redundant and boring... nothing stellar here in this new one... good to see anna taylor again since the chess show, but otherwise.. B movie...
Makes the privilege people in this world think twice 👍Excellent Actors …pretty extreme ending Disturbing…..
How is this even remotely a comedy? This movie was incredibly disturbing almost as much as the 5 star reviews praising it. These types of movies desensitizes people to the real unimaginable horrors that go on in the world today which many people are unaware of. Millions of human trafficking victims - men, women and children. I won't go into go into details here because its hard to even imagine that evil like this even exists. Thankfully a lot of this has been dealt with along with the perpetrators. These crimes against humanity will be revealed to the world and it won't be easy for people to process. But, this needs to be seen by the world so that we never let this kind of evil to take root on the planet ever again. During this time I urge people to help and support one another. We are inherently good and compassionate people. Many of you reading this will probably dismiss this as crazy far fetched and absurd. It's fine, my intention here is to merely bring it up so that when these dark revelations come to light you'll take my words and help others. I will say that theirs light at the end of this tunnel. This will bring about unimaginable change that will be for the greater good of all humanity / all life on this planet. <3 <3
I just laugh the end ….
surprising movie. not what expected though good
Such a great blend of comedy and suspense. Cast is amazing. Unexpected plot twists and sharp satire. But also great commentary on the price people pay for devotion to their art. Oscar sleeper?
"No likeable person, no hero, no escape, no hope!" I wonder if the rater saw the movie at all. From the very beginning we recognize the likable "hero" the only one that was not supposed to be there. I am not going to argue the remainder points so as not to spoil the movie. As an avid movie-goer, and connoisseur of the horror, thriller and suspense genres, I had mixed feelings after completion, but these are things I liked: a) novel development of the plot as it unfolds -unpredictable. It kept you wondering what was next. Sure some of the threads were a bit childish, but after consideration, I believe that these were representations of the mind of the character of Ralph Fiennes as the Chef, and despite his deranged actions, Fiennes succeeds in making us almost feel sorry for him, and the masterful sparing of a sole survivor who understood his psyche. Other characters were caricatures, but Fiennes performance here is superb. Now I am not saying there was "bad" acting, with one or two exceptions, but that the script and/or direction did not allow or develop those characters fully. But I don't go to movies to critique, but to have fun, and that I did have! Recommended
It's a decent movie compared to other movies released this year. There's better movies to see right now, but this is still solid and worth watching if you have watched everything else. Side note: negative people will always be negative and rate movies as 1 star just because they want to be A-holes.
I loved the dark humour in this movie and I laughed out loud several times! The story line is weirdly based on a sad but true subject so if you lack the ability to see humour in sad truths it might not be for you but laugh or not I thought this was one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time!
an award worthy performance from Ralph Fiennes
Interesting original plot line and characters. Different and unique w/twists throughout
An uncomfortably funny movie. Brilliantly conceived and produced. Oscar worthy performances. Interesting character development throughout. Chef is both terrorizing and empathetic. Those reviewers here who have panned this movie may have consumed its content but did not appreciate the meaning of what was served up. They managed to transform a true work of art into shit, and must somehow feel they received less than they wanted. However, I would suggest "The Menu" served these naysayers much more than they deserved.
There's nothing mind blowing about this movie, but hardly a bad movie either. People that give this only a 1 star are just negative people best be ignored. It's a good movie to watch, whether you want to spend "Theater" prices or not is just a personal choice.
This is not a foodie moving! This is not even a good mystery. This was just a terribly bad movie.
The movie was awesome. Finally a great movie. It was about truth and how media, magazine writers, critics can ruin the lives of many many people who were great but had to deal with the lies and opinions of others. I noticed that a few people mentioned there was no plot to the story. Really??? You've got to be kidding
Smart and well crafted. Excellent performances. I loved it and plan to see it again in the theater soon. Next time I’ll take a friend.
No plot at all. Spend your money on a better movie, rather watch the WNBA
One of the worst shows I have seen in a long time . Skip it . Too many good shows to waste your time.
No plot; No storyline; No reason to see!
Save your money! On the dark side for sure with suspense. As the chef adds unexpected events during dinner.
The movie was ok. If you do not expect much from it then you won't feel disappointed Happy ending for one gal 😉
No likeable person, no hero, no escape, no hope! Depressing. An artist expressing their contempt for everyone. I am surprised anyone agreed to play in story.
Interesting concept at the beginning of the movie, which, however never explains itself as the story unfolds. The movie's end is totally stupid and neither actually "ends" the movie or makes any sense of it. Had looked forward to seeing it based on trailers or "previews", but this movie, if seen at all, might be relegated to home viewing on a boring day or night.
Drags a bit, but it's funny, mysterious and bloody. I liked it.
