    I was a bit luke warm on this film the first time I watched it and my initial review reflects that, but this second viewing really worked for me. The soundtrack is of course great and the visuals are stunning, especially that awesome crane shot but what I really appreciated is that this film rips.

A little bit thriller, a wee bit western, a dollop of sci-fi and a whole-lotta bit of Jaws combine for an entertaining film that reveals itself slowly and confidently. The whole cast is excellent with Keke Palmer and Daniel Kaluuya bringing real emotional weight to the film that was only briefly surpassed by a Praying…
