The Menu (2022). The Menu: Directed by Mark Mylod. With Ralph Fiennes, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicholas Hoult, Hong Chau. A young couple travels to a remote island to eat at an exclusive restaurant where the chef has prepared a lavish menu, with some shocking surprises.
“This will be short and sweet. The film boasts fantastic performances from Hoult, Fiennes, and Taylor-Joy, however, they were all let down by an anticlimactic plot. The first half of the film sets the mysitcal tone well with good tension building, leaving the viewer theorising what is really going on behind the veil. Unfortunately, the film falls flat in its second act. Story arcs established in the earlier scenes are flouted, and seeds of what could be shocking scenes end up being missed opportunities for something that could be truly twisted and unnerving. And sorry, I have nothing left to say but need to fulfill the character requirement. Thanks for reading.”
