Jordan Peele is working with too many ideas in “US”. An allegory about zombies, a scientific experiment gone wrong, rabbit sci-fi, and evil twins. I had a headache halfway through. It’s too easy to suggest that our greatest enemy is ourselves.  We know he’s a talented director, writer, and producer. There just wasn’t a central theme to absorb me. As a thrill scare fest it fails. Yes Lupita does a bangup performance in her dual roles and she gets excellent support from the cast. Let’s face it, how do you follow up a smash ground breaking film like “Get Out”? This is Peele coasting. He needs to break out of the horror genre and spread his talents on a more worthwhile project.
