‘The Guest’ is a surprisingly fun throwback to 1980s horror. It boasts a thumping soundtrack and quick cuts that really fit into the theme of the film. The exaggerated scenes of violence and gore may be a bit too strange for those who do not appreciate the sentimentality and nostalgia of the movie.
The narrative is very straightforward and follows Dan Stevens, an ex-soldier, as he returns to his friend’s family’s house as a dying wish. He protects and helps them through their individual problems but all is not what it seems. The film does lose it’s way slightly towards the end as it tries to drastically remind audiences that the film is meant to be over-the-top when it was already doing a subtly good job.
Dan Stevens is very good in the main role. From the trailer, it looked like it would be a rip-off of Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Drive’ but Stevens adds a very unique coldness to his powerful persona.
In terms of tone and pacing, _The Guest_ is a little bit all over the place.
But in terms of plot, script, narrative, acting, setting, score, soundtrack, characters, intrigue, effects, humour, rewatchability, entertainment value and originality? Yeah. Pretty much nails it.
_Final rating:★★★★ – An all round good movie with a little something extra._
A fun and self-aware thriller; retro without being old fashioned
I’ve never watched Downton Abbey, but I’m guessing that Dan Stevens deliberately sought out very different roles after leaving the show. The Guest is the perfect advert for his abilities. He’s convincing as the mysterious but charming visitor and equally capable in moments of action, suspense or humour. I hope the right roles come along for him as he’s entertaining to watch and has got everything required to become a major star.
The plot unfolds in a fashion that renders a summary both unnecessary and unwanted if you’re planning to see this, but after the initial set-up it progresses at a decent pace and with escalating tension.
A special mention is required for the soundtrack. The electronic score is one of the film’s major strengths and is perfectly judged.
An entertaining and self-aware mix of action, suspense and dark humour, the Guest has a retro feel without being old fashioned (a quality that is encapsulated by the score), and features decent performances.
waste of time
I can not believe this got such a high rating It was so pathetic and predictable. In the beginning it was tolerable to watch, then it became so predictable it was annoying. Then it just got to be in one word “DISAPPOINTING” Typical US rubbish of one side can shoot and kill from any position and the other cant shoot a barn door from 1 foot away.
In the end it leaves the option open for a follow up movie after he gets shot stabbed in the back and stabbed in the heart but manages to walk away at the end dressed as Fire fighter.
I am truly sorry but the previous reviewers must have never watched a decent thriller movie before “EVER”.
