StevenF Review of Under the Skin

This film was released on March 14, 2014. It stars Scarlett Johansson as a mysterious woman who seduces lonely men at night in Scotland. After that, I’m lost on what the rest of the movie is about. An alien who discovers herself? A social commentary on women? Who knows?

This film has so little going for it, that I am at a loss for words. This is Ms. Johansson’s worst film ever, the sound track was annoying, and the story line was almost non-existant. The dialogue could have used subtitles because I could barely understand the Scottish brogue. At least I didn’t go into this movie with any expectations because they would have never been met.

My three criteria for any movie I review are 1) Would I buy it?, 2) Would I recommend it? and 3) Would I watch it again? I have to say a big, fat “NO!” to all three. If it were possible to give negative ratings to a movie, this would be the one. I give this 1/2 star out of 5 and that is being generous.
