    Excellent synopsis of some of the issues, tip of the ol' iceberg, of having dark skin in our society, along with how friendships work ... Painfully humorous... great take contemporary issues.

    We sure think that Emergency is not only any drama film but also some comedy film since 2022!
  • Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
    A night of comedic errors with a heavy dose of social commentary, Emergency is a smart addition to the genre. The film is very self-aware and delivers satire impeccably by hitting the point and with a good chuckle. Cyler also does a fantastic job in his role as well. The film's third act and ending may leave some viewers uncertain or even polarized in opinion, but overall it is a worthy watch despite the rough landing.

    It is one of the worst movies I've ever watched. Horrible premise and stupid characters that make nonsensical decisions.

    This movie has all the elements of a good film. It gave me an adrenaline ride throughout the movie. Adding comedy to a drama gives the movie balance. EMERGENCY is atop of my list for 2022.

    Funny, powerful and terrifying all thrown together into one. Both RJ Cyler and Donald Elise Watkins were incredible in this. Their chemistry is on another level and just worked so well. I am just still coming down from the fact I laughed my ass off, my blood pressure rose to unsafe levels and cried my eyes out all in the same movie.

    It's the last 30 seconds that got to me the most. A best friend sadly watches his friend's reaction of terror to the sounds of a siren. That is a powerful ending. Kudos for the delicate touch. Can't wait to watch it a 3rd time.

    'Emergency' had a chance to make a big statement after a rather large build, but couldn't stick the landing. After establishing a premise that was so real and building a world that was authentic and believable, Carey Williams missed the mark with the finish that couldn't dent the reality based world. Then you're thrust back into the reality in the final scene. That yo yo was the only real negative. The journey is better that the destination thanks in large part to the chemistry of the two leads of the film, RJ Cyler and Donald Elise Watkins. There are some particularly funny moments that often come out of left field. The social commentary is generally accurate and fairly in your face. The tonal shifts generally work, and the trauma relayed to the viewer is real and effective. Final Score: 6.5/10
