    Rodriguez echoes "Inception" and "The Matrix" with a matryoshka script and a MKULTRA-kind sci-fi. He has fun and enjoys us by getting rid of the haughty authorial arrogance of the Nolans and Wachowskis, who consider themselves able to say something new about everything (time, existence, simulacra), and indulges himself with visual constructions that not even the respective Architects of the others two films. "Sidelined by the Hollywood mainstream which has instead moved in other, not necessarily better, directions" (Raffaele Meale), he realizes the B-movie version of "Abre los ojos" (Amenábar '97), "Trance" (Boyle 2013 ), etc., also alien to his companion Tarantino or to graphic novels: an intriguing case of when "less is more". (Mauro Lanari)

    I'm not sure what the negativity regarding this movie is about, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. There were elements of a dumb downed inception, which I appreciated because I'd just finished cooking and cleaning for the family and I wasn't in the mood for anything I was going to have to think about too hard. But it wasn't predictable by any means. It kept me guessing to the end. And there is a post credit scene, so wait for it. Ok, I admit one line was predictable, LOL, but the plot was original. If you want to enjoy a thriller that will keep you on your toes, while not having to think too much, I highly suggest this film. If you are in the mood to break down every scene just to find something little to nitpick over, don't bother. Just watch, relax, and enjoy. Plus it's Robert Rodriguez, and he makes some decent entertainment. Hope this helps

    Strong hook but became predictable fast. Too many borrowed elements and in my humble opinion not the strongest from Robert Rodriguez.

    Can't believe all the hate this gets. I thought it was exciting and suspenseful. I enjoyed it.

    This was like a dollar store 'Inception' ...what on earth did they try and do, furthermore - why?! So mind-bending that at a point you question if you are actually that daft or if it is the film's poor writing (hint, it is not you). The duration is the best thing about this movie.

    #52moviesin52weeks #2023 #84 #Hypnotic #PeacockTV ¿De que trata? A un policía le secuestran a su hija y en un asalto a un banco descubre que los involucrados, quienes tienen poderes de hipnosis, podrían ser parte del secuestro. ¿Me gustó? Empieza bien, pero se pone tan exagerada y pretende ser de Nolan que termina siendo mas #SpyKids, al ser dirigida por Robert Rodriguez. No entiendo como Ben Affleck puede hacer #Air y despues este bodrio. Y lo peor es que aparentemente esperan hacer secuelas. Visualmente puede resultar semiatractiva, pero no es suficiente, y a pesar de ser corta, la tuve que ver en tres segmentos puesto que no te logra atrapar. ¿Recomendable? fan de actor, seguro. tenes sueño, mas que recomendable. Si queres ver algo bueno, no es para vos.
