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.

    To me, this was a strange and boring movie. With all the Scottish brogue, it really needed subtitles. But even with that, it would have been dull and boring. This movie lacked ANY logic, something I am big on. We do not have a minus system, but personally, I would give this a minus 10

    A very strange film, but I have to disagree with the comments about not being able to understand the accents as you didn’t need to. It was about a woman? picking up lone men and taking them to abandoned buildings, the dialogue was unnecessary.
    It was still a lousy movie though and I didn’t understand who the bikers or the women were. 0 stars.
