Critical Response via Wikipedia
On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 99% based on 280 reviews, with an average rating of 8.3/10. The site’s critical consensus reads, “Funny, scary, and thought-provoking, Get Out seamlessly weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride.” It is one of ten films to earn a 99% (six other films) or 100% (three films) rating with 100 or more reviews (it held a 100% approval rating after the first 139 reviews on the site were registered). On Metacritic, the film has a score of 84 out of 100, based on 48 critics, indicating “universal acclaim”. Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of “A–” on an A+ to F scale.[35]

Richard Roeper gave the film 3½ stars, saying, “The real star of the film is writer-director Jordan Peele, who has created a work that addresses the myriad levels of racism, pays homage to some great horror films, carves out its own creative path, has a distinctive visual style—and is flat-out funny as well.” Keith Phipps of Uproxx praised the cast and Peele’s direction, noting: “That he brings the technical skill of a practiced horror master is more of a surprise. The final thrill of Get Out—beyond the slow-building sense of danger, the unsettling atmosphere, and the twisty revelation of what’s really going on—is that Peele’s just getting started.” Mike Rougeau of IGN gave the film 9/10, and wrote: “Get Out’s whole journey, through every tense conversation, A-plus punchline and shocking act of violence, feels totally earned. And the conclusion is worth each uncomfortable chuckle and moment of doubt.” Peter Travers of Rolling Stone rated Get Out a 3.5/4, and called it: ” a jolt-a-minute horrorshow laced with racial tension and stinging satirical wit.” Scott Mendelson of Forbes praised how the film captures the current zeitgeist and called it a “modern American horror classic”.
