Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This is a uniquely hateful and offensive piece of violent exploitation cinema that has no redeeming value. Using a similar title to Jordan Peel's treatise on racism, Get Out, seems cynical, insulting, and exploitive. The based-on-a-true-story claim is vague, which is a good thing, because nothing about Get In is either believable or good. If the house thieves are "renters," then how much are they paying and when is the lease up? Why does the law prevent Paul from getting his clothes and his pet bird? Paul loses his temper every time he speaks to a bureaucrat who might otherwise be inclined to help. And when idiots suggest to him that he has chosen to be a victim, he just fumes like a 4-year-old who has been called a bad name.

The people who eventually do take action are low-life drunken thugs who view violence and entertainment interchangeably, who respect nothing but a bat to their heads, and who espouse the benefits of toxic masculinity and the made-up notion of willing victimhood. If Mickey really were the way men should be, why would he need to drink and get high all day, rape women, and beat up defenseless men? Yet, only at the story's end, after Paul is forced to become as brutal as Mickey, even if only in self-defense, does his wife make love to him. This cynical and irresponsible movie endorses a dangerous sense of entitlement: that people who are willing to violently take what they think they deserve have the right to do so.
