People were really hyping up LaKeith Stanfield and Daniel Kalluya but holy shit did they ever deliver.

What it lacks in visual appeal, it more than makes up for in every other aspect. This was absolutely riveting and I was genuinely surprised to see this was 2hrs long because it just flew by. The world brought on this screen is inhabits by a fantastic score, incredible performances, great production design, and a great script.

I’m so happy I got to see this early but I wish I could see this in a theater. Can’t wait for everyone to fall in love with this.
