Unbelievable, ridiculous, pretty much total nonsense. It could have been a just 'ok' movie, but they decided to include a laughable 15-minute epilogue that ruined the movie completely and spoiled whatever good remained.

It was so bad. The acting really horrible, lots of cliches, and the blonde girl has no purpose. It is a terrible cheap movie.

This was not very good.... Just very unoriginal. I'm not exactly sure why this got made. The acting was decent, though. And it's got the whole 80's nostalgia thing going on. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a good story to back it up.

Pretty average, a little fun, awkward script and acting. One of the boys is played by a 25 year old and you could tell. Also, the blonde girl has literally no purpose in the film except to be the same trope as every pretty older neighbour who teen boy has a crush on. Yawn.

This is a great, somewhat lighter companion piece to Super Dark Times

The acting from the lead is surprisingly good. He's well cast. While cliches abound, this was more fun and well made than I expected. But yeah, that tonal shift in the last 15 minutes. Upped the stakes considerably. The 80s nostalgia wasn't as amped up as I thought it may be.

Watchable to a degree but clunky writing holds it back from being anything good.

Well, I did enjoy watching it.

But what's the deal with those last 15 minutes? Did a new director take over, who didn't like the whole mood and tone set in the first 1.5 hours? There wasn't really any "surprising twist" ending in the facts of the story, just in the jarring shift of ...Read more

Well they were 3 directors.
Maybe they spilt the movie in three and each had their own part.

Kinda like the create a story campfire game we used to play.

I was transfixed from the beginning; the characters were wonderful and the plot was compelling. Glad I picked this to watch.

I love the soundtrack and visuals. Characters are pretty good but at times there was a seemingly unintentional and barely perceptible corniness in the acting that made me nervous. (I am overly critical.) You might enjoy this if you're into Stranger Things, true crime, and 80's vibes. There ...Read more

These directors are the same ones for *Turbo Kid* which is a movie I am interesting in seeing. I like this movie. Hoping for a sequel. I don't think this movie banks that much on 80's nostalgia beyond the importance that was newspapers. For those interested in watching this just beware that ...Read more
