This feature from Universal Pictures opens at cinemas on July 22.

Writer/director Jordan Peele made a huge impression with his 2017 debut feature “Get Out,” a brilliant horror satire that won accolades and an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. His follow up “Us” detailed sinister doppelgangers and also fared well with the press and audiences. So, expectations have been high for his latest feature.

There’s a lot here and perhaps this is the reason that the end result is so uneven. The film attempts to address so much that nothing feels properly resolved.
