The only good thing about the movie was Dave Bautista’s performance which was unfortunately poisoned by the ridiculous agenda driven script. They made it all about the two Daddy’s being persecuted for being gay. At one point they are flashing back to a night at a bar where one of The gay dads willingly engaged with an idiot in a bar and unfortunately decided to not pay attention to the fool he had words with and he got hit with a bottle. Of course he turned the one hit into this life scarring hate crime that put him in therapy for years trying to get over it which he obviously never does. I mean he decided to stick up for himself and sometimes when you do that you are escalating things. For any other guy, the same exact incident would be a typical Tuesday night but for the this guy who was pretty ok with aggression it’s a life changing event that we should all collectively weep over and then hold hands and protest. I grew up in a hostile area and have been attacked, bullied, assaulted, jumped and molested etc etc etc more times than most people would believe but because I am just a straight white make all the crimes/atrocities perpetrated against me don’t count. I don’t agree with any of the discrimination this couple faced over their years together but I am sorry, they don’t have the market cornered on dealing with tragedy, and they don’t love each other any more than any couple in love loves each other. M Night threw away any credibility he might have had in order to appeal to the current crowd of trend following sheep.
No twist ending. Sad. Fake news. 😔
Won't watch ever again. Poor plot and script. Acting was ok. Sad movies are being made to fit Netflix and not vice versa.
I usually like M. Night movies, but this one wasn’t very good.
Hollywood isn't going to have enough money to make movies if they keep pumping out this reused drivel and substituting gay characters. I say keep it up!
Typical lame Shyamalan twist ending. I go to see this, it plays out and then there's end credits. It was a movie the whole time! What a ripoff!
Bad real bad
To me, If I am watching a movie and I am so engaged in every word that I can't take my eyes off the screen, That is a win. That was not the ending I expected so to my, that was the twist end that I did not expect. I knew the directors style and that is what I got. Great Movie!!!!
Very thought provoking movie....it brought ought interesting ideas. A very good cast that deserves more attention
I want money back
It wasn't the worst movie I ever saw. Very slow moving. Anti-climactic. At least my popcorn was good.
My husband and I enjoyed this movie. We were surprised how well Batista acted.
Not enough suspense for me. For and end of the world type movie you would think there would be more suspense.
This movie is unrealistick. Even for scifi . On the level of teen entertainment.
. Took my boys because previous looks so good. Needless to say waste of money
Thank goodness they have movie trailers so people can avoid this garbage.
This is a fine piece of filmmaking with excellent cinematography and an absolutely phenomenal ensemble cast. While it may be short of perfect, it creates a lot of tension and provokes a lot of thought. It's pacing is also terrific; it's a two-hour movie that feels like an hour and 20 minutes. It's a fine, simple story. I saw this the same day as Infinity Pool and definitely found this the more enjoyable film.
Great story. I dislike when "wokism" is pushed on me. Did not feel it was in this movie. The gay characters endured a lot for their love which made it more of a sacrifice when asked to do the ultimate. Ignore the rhetoric and go see this movie... Dave Bautista did an excellent job.
This movie was absolutely garbage. I fell asleep twice. I payed $33 for 2 tickets, it wasnt worth the money. I could of stayed home and bought scratch offs and had more fun. Next time I will have to read the reviews. Anoter disappointment for who every goes to see this movie. You’ll be better off giving the money to the homeless and don’t even watch the movie not this one anyway read the reviews and see what people are saying.
As we put ourselves in the position of these victims, we are faced with the challenge of how well ordered, is our Life? All that we choose has its impact. An impressive reminder of this.
I like Shyamalan movies, though I may be somewhat farty in the theares, I enjoyed this movie to the extreme. Classic Gotcha and fantastic movie really loved it, the unexpected plot was a classic !
Well, final verdict for Knock at the Cabin... kind of boring in all honesty. There's no overt messaging in it, or anything particularly wrong with the movie. The acting is the best aspect of the whole movie. David Bautista really could use more roles. But a lot of the scenes feel incredibly cheap, it doesn't feel like there's any real suspense. It's extremely formulaic, by the numbers and even a bit laughable at times when it clumsily tries to earn that R rating. Feels like a PG13 movie that was rated as a movie for 15+. It's also nice to see a same sex couple for a change in a big blockbuster, that isn't just a 'do better' message. But yeah, not something I'd really suggest going to a cinema to see. It's not really gripping. The tension building kind of drops after the initial penny drops. You don't really get enough time to connect with the characters. Even the two dads. Another disappointment since OLD movie so ridiculous story.
Do I have to give it one star never mind the gay and lesbian argument thinking the Director ate to many edibles while he was making the movie like most movies that are put out there poorly written poorly made
Apparently a lot of bigots didn’t enjoy this movie, which means I will LOVE it.
Another Snooze fest 😴 from M. Night Shyamalan
the movie sucks- total waste of your money
Another JUNK MOVIE...Every time the Gay/lesbian angle is sneaked in to a normal movie the movie SUCKS. Then so as to offend anyone throw in a mixed cast of nationalities and hope that all works well. This producer should be shot making such junk movies and wasting people's time.
M. Night Shyamalan makes another bomb. How does this guy get funding for movies all the time? Everything he makes loses money and gets raked over coals by good movie critics. No doubt RT will plump up the numbers to make it seem like a hot movie again, but look at the director, and then set your speed to plodding.
Movie is absolute garbage don’t waste your time it’s another attempt at being woke and inclusive.
GARBAGE....Here we go again with the GAY angle. Then as to not offend people throw in one person of every ethnic group. Then pray that by some miracle this movie is great.....SUCKS.
This movie is “Critical Race Theory” in a nutshell. Full of nutcase actors and production crew. How the hell a gay couple and their Chinese daughter just happen to be wondering through a vast forest only to run into a cabin abducted by people telling them the world is gonna end unless they sacrifice each other 🤣. The is one of the corniest woke weirdo movies off all-time. Once again HollyWeird proves how wacky they are.
One of the best movie of 2023
I've grown weary of Shyamalan's mostly tiresome oeuvre, but I'll go see this because of Bautista. Twist!
So inclusive! Family is made up of Asian child and gay dads, "strangers" are one black woman, one hispanic, one ginger man and one white woman. One of each minority, whether it makes sense or not! Way to go Hollywood!
