  1. Francisco's rating of the film Midnight Special

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Midnight Special

    Même si de rares séquences souffrent d'un manque de cohérence et d'explicitation et que d'autres piétinent dans l'étirement et l'inutilité, l'ensemble dénote une évidente puissance scénaristique proche des meilleurs romans d'un Dean Koontz inspiré... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Django's rating of the film Midnight Special

    So much potential, from an original story to a very fine cast, but the film never gets out of first gear and sputters along until it ends with a bit of an underwhelming whimper.

  4. DenoResandono's rating of the film Midnight Special

    MIDNIGHT SPECIAL is more "Steven Spielberg" than "Jeff Nichols". But this movie still has some of drama that you will found in his previous works. MIDNIGHT SPECIAL was putting its focus on the storytelling. Despite of its sci-fi elements and impressive special effects, MIDNIGHT SPECIAL is just merely a drama about relationship between parents and their child. Somehow, it lacks of emotional punch. But it's still good.

  5. muh.'s rating of the film Midnight Special

    (2.5) Floating somewhere in the middle without ever being bad or especially good (except the cinematography and music which work together splendidly) making it one of those movies in the "notable, but not quite" category.

  6. Eric Ortiz García's rating of the film Midnight Special

  7. JCPJD's rating of the film Midnight Special

    It starts off well but slips into some lazy territory as it progresses. Michael Shannon is a great presence throughout. There's not a huge amount I can remember about it - and I only watched it a few days ago. It's a decent midweek watch, but not a lot more.

  8. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Midnight Special

    Good sci-f thriller even if one gets lost in these parallel universes. Reminds of certain works of M. Night SHYAMALAN, or, with nostalgia, to the Village of the Damned, Wolf RILLA's masterpiece. Great Adam DRIVER (Paterson) === Bon thriller, même si on se perd un peu dans ces univers parallèles. On pense à certains films de M. Night SHYAMALAN, ou, avec nostalgie, au Village des Damnés, ce chef d'oeuvre de Wolf RILLA.

  9. Florencja Bandini's rating of the film Midnight Special

    I guess for the "Alien SF Fans" it's a great movie, and I get why. But I'm not one of them.

  10. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film Midnight Special

  11. Diderot's rating of the film Midnight Special

    It's a film that relies on the attention it pays to its characters to circumvent the absurdity of its plot revelations. But even the moment of absurdity toward which the plot moves achieves a beauty that few others could earn given the same material.

  12. Bob's rating of the film Midnight Special

    Great camera work and some wonderful shots are not enough to cover up the lack of any emotional attachment or suspense. So, what seems as technically flawless piece, comes as an empty and non engaging experience. Otherwise great cast seems kind of lost here - and the only memorable moments are the ones that present sci-fi elements in a story that is supposed to be character driven, with sci-fi being just a backdrop.

  13. wi.bi's rating of the film Midnight Special

  14. Peregrine's rating of the film Midnight Special

    either nothing happens or something happens and and mostly with our special effects and we can't really say it or explain it but i guess those who know -feel it right? yeah we were really going somewhere but now it's gone and I only remember the crappy soundtrack and that they have high white buildings with greenery on the balconies

  16. petit astronaute's rating of the film Midnight Special

  17. Luke Spence's rating of the film Midnight Special

    More drama than sci-fi, nevertheless a good film. Michael Shannon is great, brining a gritty desperation to the role. And Adam Driver doles out a bit of comic relief to an otherwise serious and resolute story.

  18. smokescreen's rating of the film Midnight Special

  19. N!nA's rating of the film Midnight Special

  20. Gia de Almeida's rating of the film Midnight Special

    Least favourite movie by Jeff Nichols so far but still pretty amazing.

  21. janh24's rating of the film Midnight Special

    Hideous; dreadful; appalling; 'a disaster, Suse!'

  22. MistaRichard's rating of the film Midnight Special

    This is another one of those movies that, alongside "Ex Machina", try to shine a renewed light on the sci-fi genre. Mark these words: a future sci-fi cult classic.

  23. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Midnight Special

    This is an all-in-one-mix of several genres: crime, road-movie, sci-fi, drama & religion. But since none of these topics are followed through, this is like laying a false trail to produce & keep suspense high. It partially does, but specifically the end is not at all extraordinary. Quite flat. Something beyond our imagination would have made this movie special. But there is no beyondness. Still worth watching. Solid.
