A fun and self-aware thriller; retro without being old fashioned

I've never watched Downton Abbey, but I'm guessing that Dan Stevens deliberately sought out very different roles after leaving the show. The Guest is the perfect advert for his abilities. He's convincing as the mysterious but charming visitor and equally capable in moments of action, suspense or humour. I hope the right roles come along for him as he's entertaining to watch and has got everything required to become a major star.

The plot unfolds in a fashion that renders a summary both unnecessary and unwanted if you're planning to see this, but after the initial set-up it progresses at a decent pace and with escalating tension.

A special mention is required for the soundtrack. The electronic score is one of the film's major strengths and is perfectly judged.

An entertaining and self-aware mix of action, suspense and dark humour, the Guest has a retro feel without being old fashioned (a quality that is encapsulated by the score), and features decent performances.

A highly entertaining 80's style action thriller

I thought Wingard's last effort You're Next suffered from too much hype and it didn't entirely work for me. Now he returns with an action movie of sorts with some slasher elements thrown in with The Guest and this is a home run. It is a slick and entertaining action thriller that hearkens back to the same kind of movies from the 80's with its own modern touches along with a great soundtrack and a great performance from Dan Stevens.

Good: Dan Stevens is the glue that binds this movie together. He exudes vulnerability and charm that you just can't help but like the guy and yet he still retains some sinister vibes underneath that smiling exterior. He knocks it out of the park and when things amp up he delivers on that front also. I really like the family in this movie. They were all likable and I was concerned for their well being which isn't something that a lot of these movies tend to successfully pull of. Maika Monroe turns in a strong performance. The direction is very slick and it has a nice atmosphere to it. The action is swift and hits hard without going too over the top. The music is another plus with its 80's style synth pop that makes every scene that much more enjoyable.

Bad: The movie never truly surprises with its twists and turns and it is a pretty straightforward thriller.

Overall, it doesn't do anything new, but it does so in style with great performances, slick action, and an awesome soundtrack.

Brilliant movie.. worth a watch!

I went in to the cinema with no expectations with this movie. I watched the trailer and assumed it will be some average movie but I was totally mistaken. The film is very fast paced with surprisingly some humor throughout. There was a lot of gruesome fight scenes (I personally jump watching violent scenes) but I get the reasons why they were there. Dan Stevens was a complete shocker with his performance. If you remember him from Downtown Abbey, his performance here is amazing! He portrays a brilliant character and he does an amazing American accent. All the actors were perfectly cast for this movie. I loved Maika Monroe, she reminded me a lot of Brittany Murphy and Gwen Stefani. The ending was totally not expected and I loved every bit. The music played reminded me a bit of Drive soundtrack but worked brilliant with this movie. I truly recommend the movie!!
