“ It's more like a boring kid movie than a scary movie.

“ He told us the story of a hidden community who have some thrilling intentions.
“ The cinematography was fantastic in places, the soundtrack very similar to Hered's was good, but apart from that..It even got interesting toward midpoint when one of characters takes photo's of things he shouldn't.. I thought a turning point in the film was coming but disappointingly it just carried on at the same mundane irrelevant pace and slowly, predictably came to its ending act, which I embraced wholeheartedly.
“For a start it is not a horror movie but a psychological thriller albeit a very, very, very slow one.

“ It was the most annoying uninteresting tiresome movie I have seen the past decade or more.
“Midsommar is intriguing, disturbing and frightening and i highly recommend it to everyone who is a fan of the horror genre or even a fan of psychological horror in general.
“ While Midsommar moves slowly and predictably almost entirely throughout - the first act tragedy being the exception - Martha Marcy May Marlene (Sean Durkin, 2011) explores the darker, and arguably scarier parts of those themes with more effect in a more unpredictable way.
“ The longer i watched it, a lot worse i felt about this movie, The mood of the movie is pretty dull, the only thing that stands out from the movie is the cinematography, I give you that aster.

“ This movie is similar to Hereditary somehow, but Midsommar is too slow.
“ Weirdly entertaining .
“For one it is overly long and could have an hour taken off as this contributes to the languid pace and does not create enough tension.
“ Still, his previous work Hereditary is more intense, has a more clever story and is way harder to digest.
“ every minute in the film is predictable.
“I didn't expect a gigantic jump scares, which are pretty expected nowadays, I knew that it's gonna be mind-disturbing and unsettling, and it was, it freaked me out, but the issue with the movie is, that every unsettling, or scary -psychologically- was in broad daylight, and that's my biggest issue with the movie, that it failed to reach the same atmosphere as Hereditary did, yeah the movie was scary, but it was always in daylight, I understand why it was in broad daylight, but there was a couple of scenes in the night, and they could use more of that to build an even scarier tension, but unfortunately they didn't, and that dragged the movie down.
“ It's predictable from the moment they walk into the camp and their decision making goes from poor to extremely bad minute by minute.

“ Nothing happened.
“ This is a painfully slow movie - it takes about 65 minutes for something interesting to happen.
“ Slow start, slow middle and slow end .
“ 2.3 hours of my life I will never get back.
“ It's worth watching .
“ The film highlights all that there is to be afraid of in broad daylight and the director pushes the limits of the medium in almost every way, and the results are stunning.
“ Worst movie ever, the rating is a trap, its just boring and weird, nothing happens, no meaning
“ Other good reviews are left by pretentious viewers, who like to claim that they see the true worth of a movie.
“ If you don't have any plans of seeing it or you won't have a chance of watching the The Director's Cut - the Theatrical Cut still feels complete and doesn't feel like something is missing in it, so it's still a better option, but if you enjoyed the experience like me, then it's worth the watch.
“stupid ending just like Hereditary, boring, no gore nothing scary about this movie just plain boring and ridiculous and the rest is annoying and nudity.

“ What an utter waste of time.
“ Think I need my teeth extracted boring characters boring film if you don't think it's bad you must need a labotomy there is, zero horror sorry big zero from me
“ What her character goes through and how she ends up at the end of the film is intriguing to watch.
“ Pointless .
“ Is this the kind of movie people will consider a 7.5/10?I worry for the future because this movie was a criminally dull script with shallow characters and almost no horror or thrill or depth.
“ A well written and engaging story .
“Moving at a snail's pace, the first hour of Midsummar is a massive challenge for the viewer, as the students travel to the village of the Hårga, meet the locals, and take part in ancient rites which involve lots of chanting and taking of hallucinogens.

“ Continual discordant music, irritating wailing and rather dull.
“ It is long and tedious .
“ Simply put the worst movie I have ever seen .
“ He definitely has a talent for creating a sense of dread and horror while portraying characters in a slow downward spiral into insanity.
“ This movie was really uninteresting.
“ Childish, boring and predictable.
“ The story is straight forward and if you survive 2 hrs than there is a predictable twist.
“ The alternative horror subplot provides suspense as Aster's reputation precedes him into this film, but the shock value of certain "unexpected" moments is unimpressive and forgettable.
“ All in all, nothing new under the sun, just one more pretensious "masterpiece" that looks impressive but in the end is just another weak cliché that takes itself waaaay too serious.
“ I don't know where to start this movie is absolutely horrible, It's a big waste of time with one of the worst endings I've ever seen.
“ Complete waste of time, failure on every level
“ Very Boring .
“ Boring as hell .
“ It was only after watching this did I find out it was associated with another boring movie "hereditory" that this drivel made sense, my idea of horror isn't an updated boring version of the wicker man.
“ The movie is so bad and so boring that I just went to a YouTube video to explain the movie and the ending to me.
“ Boring at times, disturbing at others, based on absolutely nothing and not believable at all.
“ Seriously one of the worst movies I've ever watched.
“ However the main characters bored me.
“ The characters are unlikable, the story is boring and stupid.
“ That was intense.
“ The main character has a slow decent to madness after she's crowned may queen also worked really well.
“ Beautiful scenery is constantly juxtaposed with hints of horror and gore to make for an equal parts enjoyable and traumatic experience.
“ This film wasn´t a bad movie, but make more enjoyable the speaches, make the spectator to feel the sensation to nothing bad are to come.
“ On top of that it was way too long.
“ Not entirely sure what to make of it, but worth watching once.
“ it's 2,5 hours waste of your time!
“ I'm not going to spoil anything, but quite early in the film, there's a quite shocking moment (or it supposed to be shocking) the reaction of the characters lasts literally 5 minutes and the next scene is just about them doing other stuff like nothing happened.
“ Totally, pointless.
“ A bit more engaging than "Suspiria.
“ This movie is slow,long &boring.
“ WORST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN .
“ This is one of the worst movies i have ever watch .
“ But the self-indulgence of the film went too far in stringing out the mundane activities of the village and an arty approach to the horror genre.
“Instead of wasting 3 hours of your life watching this toss watch The Wicker Man instead.
“ 165 Minutes of Empty Artsy Weirdness .
“ That's the entire film in a nutshell - not my cup of tea, I'd rather watch paint dry.
“ After this shear torture of around 1 hrs they switch storyline now since you are already bored to death then any little baseless twist will gives a feel good effect.
“ This is another proof why Aster is an innovative film-maker , Having been impressed by the obvious echoes of a rising new wave of horror in Hereditary ,I waited impatiently for Midsommar since they anounced it as his next movie , and the first trailer made the wait unbearable, A group of american friends including a couple on the verge of a break-up travel to Sweden to attend a pagan festival , urine on their sacred trees , impregnate them, try their weed, eat their pubes, and eventually getting killed in an aesthetic way influenced by Fuller's Hannibal Lecter one by one as a punishment except for May Queen who had to witness all the madness unfold around her and get more and more fused with the crazy reality around her that is so far from normal till the moment of enlightment and clarity .
“From an incredibly effective opening hour that perfectly establishes a sense of fear and ominous threat thanks to a hard-hitting pre-credits segment, some stylistically outstanding directing by Aster (never has a shot of a car driving along a highway been so engaging) and a captivating turn from rising star Florence Pugh who makes the very difficult character of Dani work thanks to her commanding presence, Midsommar does so much right but as things progress further and further into Aster's uncomfortable examination of grief, mental illness, folk music and cultism, Midsommar at times flat out stalls to a halt with murky character decisions and repetitive sequences that culminate in a visually arresting and shocking climax that sadly manages to tie things up satisfactory, not exemplary.
“ As much as I adored Hereditary (a movie that you either love or hate, according to what many other people expressed; personally I found it brilliant), Midsommar adds something new to the whole concept: it's a broader work, which similarly to Hereditary bids its sweet time before reaching its acme, but which undoubtedly doesn't leave the viewers indifferent, once the pace unravels from its initially apparent slow rhythm.
“ No story, no depth, no pay off.
“ Match that with some stunning camera effects, such as the subtle hallucinogenic representations, and quality acting, supported by equally impressive cinematography, then the results are an fully captivating without compromising the quality.
“Both Hereditray and Midsommar are self-indulgent, Midsommor especially.
“ This film could easily have been 1 HR long danced along in a tedious manner.
“ The acting is superb and the story line intense, the emotional journey the protagonist goes on keeps you engaged until the end.
“ The worst movie of 2019 .
“ It's a pretty well done movie, and I would highly recommend it!
“ I can't believe how some people rate it so high, the writer obviously didnt spend too much time writing the script, a plot so obvious and thin dragged out for 2 1/2 hours, no frights or scary moments worth writing about.
“ I get it but is that entertaining?
“ Got to be one of the worst movies ever.
“ Instead he's knocked out and the movie resumes it's slow pace.
“ The fact that the movie was very slow pacing and the characters were not developed properly.
“ It was so long and drawn out.
“If you like movies with unexpected end then go and see Midsummer.
“ While many are tearing this apart for being disturbing , sickening or pretensions the director has committed the greatest sin of all, it's Boring.
“Utterly boring, predictable and forgettable.
“ So incredible drawn out and predictable.
“ Way too long .
“ It is unending and dull.
“ Was moving so slow fell asleep multiple times to be waken up from random screaming scenes or music going from 1 to 100.
“ What a pointless mess.
“ Don't Waste Your Time .
“ The story is slow moving which may lose some audience.
“ I know there is a message on dependency in this but it gets lost in all the cliche slasher film tropes and wicker man ripoff themes.
“ Don't waste your time on this one, I want my 2hrs30mins back, thank you.
“Another negative is that it is very confusing that the outsiders do not immediately leave after the jumping-to-the-death-thing.
“It is one of the worst movies of the year.
“ Simply boring .
“ More laughable than scary, intelligent or creatively intriguing.
“ They remade Wicker Man, but made it super boring with a scene of gratuitous gross sex that lasts far too long.
“ Slow pacing movie with predictable and boring moments, very sinisterly clear motives and symbolism would not recommend dont waste your time.
“ The absence of light might possibly underscore these events as the result of unexpected actions.
“ Surreal, Atmospheric, Slow Burn Horror .
“ It's stunning.
“ Slow, boring and pretentious .
“Don't waste your time with this film, I wish I could give it less than one star.
“ Don't waste your money or time unless you like tripping scenes which actually were pretty good, the rest of the movie sucks bigtime
“ A bit slow, like having one hand tied...
“ Drawn out rubbish .
“ That's all that i want to say in a review at this time, other than I HIGHLY recommend it
“Watch at your own risk of dying - of boredom.
“ Midsommer boring .
“ Do yourself a favor and don't watch this one, it's way too long, it just feels like the director wanted to jam a lot of subtleties that make no sense in just one movie.
“Director Ari Aster (Hereditary) might claim that Midsommar only pays homage to brilliant UK folk horror The Wicker Man, but all I can see is a blatant, bloated and extremely tedious rip-off.
“The film is gripping, and I love that the narrative is unhurried, given room to breathe.
“ Overrated, no real ending, plain boring, empty, unimaginative, waste of a good story, stale.
“ Even after watching this beautifully shot film twice in 48 hours, I cannot fathom how people can enjoy the slow burning pain that is Midsommar.
“ This is his style: really slow paced stories, I saw it in "Hereditary", I saw it also here.
“ The worst movie of 2019 .
“ It's interesting, it's beautiful, it's intense, it's really well-made and it is super gory!
“ Too slow and waste of time .
“ Nothing happens .
“ Where The Wicker Man (Director's Cut) runs at a reasonable 99 minutes, its engrossing story whisking the viewer along as Edward Woodward's character attempts to solve a mystery on a remote Scottish island, Aster's film (The Director's Cut) takes a whopping 171 minutes to tell its very familiar tale of unwary outsiders falling foul of an strange religion that practises bizarre rituals.
“ Only flaw is you'll get 'Get Out' vibes because storyline seems same and couple of times it's predictable
“ Waste of my time .
“ Very entertaining.
“ In the first place, it's so damn SLOW!
“ Americans might find it a bit boring because they can't concentrate on anything longer than an episode of the Simpsons plus it was very well thought out which again could let it down in America.
“ what a waste of time , piece of crap .
“ I feel the ghost of Nicholson's "The Passenger," and "A passage to India" now-a boredom resembling a sand dune.
“ Too slow and waste of time.
“ This movie is exactly like the people who wrote good reviews for it; pretentious and boring.
“ Luls , europeans are not this dum come on , cool movie kinda boring
“ Had some good moments but all in all too slow
“ It's so boring.
“ A truly boring film.
“ The music slowly builds up tension, that never reaches it peak, yet never allows for a release, leaving an empty feeling in the stomach, having a cerebral feeling of anxiety.
“ I have never, ever in my entire life wanted to leave the cinema during a film, bar this.
“ Boring Boring Boring .
“ Her friends - a bunch of bland characters that you do not care for.
“ Worst movie I ever seen in my life it's so slow and most boring movie of all time.
“ I waited months to see this and even watched the trailer several times just to psyche myself for the full 2 and a half hour run time which, I thought, would contain stunning visuals, visceral violence not before seen on film, amazing cinematography, atmospheric chills (a la Wicker Man, The Innocents) and an absorbing soundtrack which would further unnerve me and have me on the edge of my seat.....
“ Meaningless movie: grotesque and unintentionally comic.
“ Boring .
“ Entire film too slow and many upside down and aerial scene!
“ Complete waste of time .
“ This movie is really weird you could say in a good way but its characters are just soo annoying and everyone except the girl acts really stupid, its also really long and sometimes boring.
“I enjoy character development and a good slow burn.....
“ On top of that the movie felt very predictable.
“ It's just annoying and pretentious.

“ dont waste your time .
“ Honestly, if you give this pretentious load of BS a bad review, you obviously just dont "get it.
“ Horrible slow movie for 80% and then disgusting and weird for 20%.
“ Extremely boring and without substance .
“ Pugh looks gorgeous; (b) music; it's bold, evocative, and atmosphericNow the bad points: everything else.
“ I don't know why Hollywood left out the fact, that the midsummer "traditions" depicted in the movie that the reactionary nationalist cult celebrates, are just something Swedish state centralizers dreamed up in the 1900's (as part of the state Swedification propaganda about Sweden being a culturally unified country with one people, one language and one historical background)?
“ Same old boring story, nothing special.
“ It was too predictable and uninteresting, sometimes cringeworthy.
“ Disturbing and unsettling, would class in the same league as The Witch, The Wind, Hereditary or maybe the lighter yet still intriguing Witches in The Woods.....
“ Just plain old awful and boring.
“ a boring nonsense movie .
“ The movie is too long, and if I were from Sweden I would be appalled.
“Its pretentious, dull and nonsensical.
“ Long winded, predictable.
“ In fact, the longer passages, in a 2:20 run time, add to your feeling of being immersed in the characters situation.
“ This is supposed to be a scary thing, but it is far too long and tedious.
“ Boring, lack of realism and boring .
“ Well worth the watch though.
“ Firstly, I would like to say is that this is a boring movie.
“ A small amount of the film seemed to be drawn out a bit and I believe the same effect could have been achieved in a shorter amount of time.
“ Apart from that, a thoroughly engaging if overlong 7 out of ten
“ So boring & confusing .
“ There's no substance, no suspense, it's predictable and the storyline is dragging itself to the end, there's little or no climax.
“ Cant believe people are able to comment anything conventional,like weird movie,predictable,slow...
“ This story follows a great main character with a boring, full of uninteresting, one-dimensional minor characters.
“ However, if you enjoy movies that make you use your brain, have a slow build horror that hits you like a brick wall, or mess with you on a psychological level.
“And even after one insane event after the other, they just kept staying like nothing happened.
“ This movie is absolutely pointless, nothing interesting, stupid story, who in their right mind would stick around after watching 2 people jump off a cliff...
“ Odd and boring.

“ It's a waste of time and will leave you sat puzzled and disturbed.
“ Long and predictable.
“ Banal horror movie .
“ Over long, no surprises, dull lifeless direction.
“ Movie was incredibly drawn out and just trash.
“ One if the worst movies I ever seen!.
“ Beautiful photography but very boring story with complete nonsense
“ The characters make decisions which are so out of norm that it's frustrating to watch, story is entirely predictable, boring not to say the least and the only thing impressive is the cinematography and Florence Pugh did an amazing job and remains to be the only standout in the movie.
“ What a waste of time.
“I found Midsommar weird yet fascinating...
“ boring and no horror .
“ It's one of the worst movies ever.
“ The other characters ranged from equally annoying to uninteresting.

“ Do you want to waste your time?
“ A bit of ritualistic sex and the sight of a bloke with his lungs pulled out of his back are about the film's only other noteworthy moments before the whole boring mess finishes in inevitable fashion, stealing its fiery climax from...
“ Such a waste of time.
“ Predictable but still fascinating to watch .
“ It overreaches significantly, but is endearing and intriguing almost because of that.
“ Way too long .
“ Most boring and dumb movie ever .
“ I would have rather watch paint dry than, watch this mess.
“ Those who are mature enough to handle this portion of the movie will be richly rewarded with the most beautiful cinematography of the year and a compelling story that is so raw and so searing that it will likely leave you breathless.
“ And it dragged for way longer than it needed too.
“ Don't waste your time and money on it ,
“ His films are somehow arty and yet entertaining at the same time.
“ What it was, was slow (not usually an issue if the speed leads to a decent film), weird and extremely easy to predict, to a point where I kept thinking "Theres gunna be a twist now, surely.
“Despite the film feeling a bit too long all cast members produce strong performances throughout, the cinematography is breathtaking and the script keeps you enthralled as the unique plot develops.
“ Terrible Waste of Time .
“ No story, no thrill, just bunch of non descript european are doing their theological orgy and the same is imposed on you.
“ Loved Hereditary, bored to death at Midsommar .
“ The final result is extremely disturbing, unsettling, grotesque, evocative and sinisterly bright: in conclusion, sun worship came back to shine.
“ Even the Nic Cage remake is better than this artsy fartsy effort and you can tell by all the pontificating ever-so-clever shill reviews which just illustrates that half of these so called arty types have not got a clue what the average man in the street wants to watch or even what they are talking about!
“ Don't waste your time!
“ overhyped drawn out yawn fest .
“ If this film had been a drama/horror about the sister's mindset leading up to her awful end, I think I could have enjoyed it.
“ Tedious remake of The Wicker Man .
“If you want to shoot a slow burner then I suppose that you have to fill that up first.
“Disturbing visuals and imagery are constantly diluted by overly drawn out scenes and, in some cases, stuff which is frankly hard not to just laugh at.
“ This movie is incredibly pointless, boring, full of left-wing propaganda, and weird for simply the sake of being weird.
“ I thought Wicker Man was the worst movie until I saw this movie.
“ Also this movie is way too long and which makes it predictable because you will have time to predict every possible outcome and then pick the one that makes the most sense (which is not very hard to choose tbh).
“ A hypnotising and confusing experience.
“ Had to mute the movie at the beginning when Dani was SCREAMING/WAILING in her bf's arms, if I had seen this in the movie theater I would have walked out right then.
“As to be expected from Aster, the cinematography was absolutely stunning, with some very beautiful shots and purposeful framing.
“ Midsommar is a amazingly realistic movie which is because it can be real, what makes it so is that ure being introduced to an entirely new culture, which makes it open for new things and very unpredictable.
“ I usually love and into the slow pacing movies.
“ I'll try to phrase it nicely below but this movie was an absolute bore and a checklist of tropes and cliches I remember when I saw the very first preview, the day it came out andd I said "that looks like teen based Wicker Man" Sitting at a lengthy 2.5 hours I was hoping for quite a deep dive of cult horror.
“ It was so mind numbingly slow.
“ Enjoyable movie??
“ This was a very enjoyable movie.
“ Midsommar tries to replicate that feeling of utter disarray but falls flat and becomes predictable.
“ A strange beast of a film that's hard to pin down and even harder to review, Ari Aster's follow-up to his brilliant classic in waiting Hereditary is at times an equally impressive psychological and visceral horror but also one that struggles in parts to overcome its self-indulgent run-time, collection of unlikeable characters and a feeling that the slow build up isn't quite worth it come the nothing short of bizarre final portion.
“ Predictable and slow.
“ You are going to be immersed in the the amount of detail that creators have put to create rituals and related events look legitimate.
“ Where Hereditary is populated by numerous sharp, stand-out sequences that often result from unexpected plot turns, Midsommar operates more as a mood piece with far fewer moment-to-moment fireworks.
“ Tedious waste of time, don't bother, seriously don't bother.
“ I think I get what the movie was trying to be, but it took such a slow and choppy path to get there.
“ This was rather boring and was hoping for something more than a long drawn out slow moving story of a bad relationship and people being brought to their own demise as a sacrifice.
“ Bored to freaking death.
“ Basically, the film is too long, too pretentious and too predictable.
“ I think this movie overrated ,,, i like hereditary,, but Midsommar just to slow and predictable.
“ Although this is a very slow paced movie, it is VERY intense during several moments.
“ Other than that it was a thoroughly engaging experience.
“ Waste of time, like serioussly don't watch....................
“ No surprises, just a waste of time.
“ Babette, suddenly, caught on the wrong side of history, escaped to Jutland, living alongside provincials who believed that "earthly love and marriages were considered of scant worth and merely empty illusion".
“ Only two want to leave after the suicide scene (by the way it is illegal just to burn bodies without some formal investigation in modern society).
“ don't waste your time.
“ That is how boring the characters are.
“ Too long and very predictable.
“ Dull as dishwater .
“ The story is extremely predictable, the pace isn't deliberate, it is decidedly slow to the point of suicide and the ending...
“ There're some trappings and attempts at originality along the way but the end result is boring, unpalatable and predictable.
“ I asked myself why dude, why all many times :) Total waste of time, don't watch it, u will thank me later.
“ Nonsense and slow .
“ Overall it gets boring and never ending, and if you are expecting a big climax, it is just so predictable that when it's over you are actually happy it finally ended.
“ and of course the end is predictable as Aster wanted to pay hommage to a certain movie.
“Maybe hard to know what to expect from a new movie by such a director (who seems to love sects btw), but I had some idea that he would experiment more with the unexpected, shock / shame and discomfort.
“ This is unlike the modern horror but rather more like the Wicker man, which had much emphasis on burning a man alive, although the story has similarities, this modern version's revamped and is well worth watching.
“ While some viewers might favor jump scares and slashing action, this perfectly crafted folk-horror appeals to those looking for more than predictable plot devices.
“ At first an intriguing premise when dealing with the troubled relationship between the main protagonist and her boyfriend (who is certainly not of the same acting chops) then turns into a silly farce where a strange Swedish cult slowly turns sinister and to incredibly ludicrous extremes.
“ Like the characters, this movie delivers a try unexpected experience.
“ It was painfully slow.
“ Don't waste your time with it.
“ Worst movie ever .
“Anyway, the movie is heavy, macabre and disturbing, impossible to be indifferent after watching, has a very slow pace, graphically strong scenes and is extremely bitter from beginning to end, with virtually no comic relief, which has so much spoiled horror movies lately, that in the end they end up looking more like comedy.
“ Slow, deja vu and not as good .
“ Slow, long with no character development so you lose interest fast.
“ To that, I can only respond that it is indeed atmospheric (thanks to the score), but Ari Aster has no right to feed me a self indulged, overly drawn out pantomime passion project that you literally see coming on a washing line.
“ The music is a lyric-coral element which once again contributes to create an evocative and ceremonial atmosphere.
“ Despite the story is slow telling, that is so awesome when they make us confuse.
“ It's actually very boring, very quickly.
“ Simply the worst movie in the history of motion pictures ...
“ Boring, long, cliche movie with a very predictable story that has been done better before.
“ So much promise destroyed by a total lack of story .
“ Did not feel any suspense here, what's or ever (Did I say it was predictable?...
“ The cinematography is also good, so at least it is enjoyable to watch from that aspect, just don't expect it to be the "Masterpiece" that some people claim it is.
“ The actors play ok but the story is boring and really really uninteresting because all of it is predictable and too random.
“ This is too lengthy and slow paced with lots of unnecessary lengthy rituals scenes.
“ Banal horror movie who pretend to be great cinema.
“ Most of the story is predictable due to previous movie.
“ It's 148 minutes of boredom and agony.
“ It is intelligent, complex, brave filmmaking that wrestles with many real-world issues while simultaneously entertaining us.
“ Slow .
“ I was expecting more after the very, very good Hereditary, Worst horror movie ever it was so slow , dragged on and it was so boring.
“ Boring, not even a horror or thriller, just weird.
“ There is so many crazy scenes in the movie I do not want to spoil but I'll say you gotta be in the right mood with this movie because it is very long and it is kind of a slow burn.
“ Boring and unsavory .
“ May be the worst movie I've ever seen .
“ Ari Aster brought us something that was unexpected and masterfully made film with some problems that i have that did hurt the film and lowers the score down a bit.
“ The film's stunning use of cinematography often framed the screen in the style of a painting and sometimes there were subtle uses of asymmetry to remind us that not everything is as it should be.
“ Bad films can be forgiven if they are not boring, this dragged from start to finish.
“ Waste of time/Disappointed .
“ No story to tell here, just a series of shots and misdirected actors.
“ or whatever) and too boring to be entertaining.
“ Surprise me with some good stuff and make me horror with unexpected turns.
“ 2 hours and 30 minutes of boredom.
“ pretentious crap .
“" This movie was gross (and I don't mean the fun kind of gross that you see in ridiculous, gory horror movies), predictable, kind of boring, and left me feeling super uncomfortable.
“ we also have the great performance of Florence Pugh who broke our hearts with her tragedy , her tears and her final confusing smile.
“ And these two and a half hours are full of pretentious details that I was not remotely interested in.
“ It's visually and technically stunning - the cinematography, the colours, the composition are all exceptional.
“ Coming off his directorial debut with 'Hereditary' last year, writer and director Ari Aster brings yet another beautifully shot, well acted, visually stunning and very unsettling horror film.
“ Ari Aster makes movies that are not for everyone, even people that love the horror genre, can be bored by its length.
“ While the hereditary was phenomenal, I found this to be a bit dragged and was confused to say the least.
“ Long, Tedious and Predictable .
“ We saw this at home and we were utterly bored.
“ Waste of time .
“ Based on the trailer, I was quite excited to watch such a thrilling, interesting concept with a disturbing cult and likable cast members like Florence Pugh and Will Poulter.
“ Worst movie i ever saw in my life After 1 hour i should have left unbeleavable i had the strenght to stay
“ But damn sure it is something overy long, predictable and slow.
“ Don't waste your time for 2 hours
“ Other than that, it was strange, slow, and meandering.
“" The aftermath is unpredictable and unspeakable acts and acts of violence.
“ it's a torture to watch.
“ A terrific after hereditary ,much more engrossing than hereditary.
“ But the turgid predictability of the screenplay kills any latent tension, so there is no shock at all, and the violence is just boring.
“ Well done in many ways, but too tedious and weird.
“ I realize there were a number of plot devices designed to make this seem natural, such as being drugged, distracted, separated etc. But it just made it all seem a bit contrived that they didn't make any serious attempts to escape.
“ I really liked all the characters, the tone and pace of the movie is really enjoyable, it has some really creative cinematography with many long takes, and a very messed up story about a happy and peaceful Swedish commune.
“ At its best, the beautiful and bizarre visuals, languid pacing, and excellent score culminate in an intoxicating surrealism that's not easy to come by in modern movies.
“ The Swedish mountains and scenery make this a visually stunning film.
“) It puts forth creative, colorful, stunning and original sequences and visuals, and delivers on the terror element in ways that you will neither expect or could possibly imagine.
“ Waste of money and time.
“ So ridiculously boring .
“ I dont get the movie, no jumpscare, nothing scary, very slow paced movie, boring, a lot of plot holes, the story is bad and predictable, the only thing that keeps me from giving this movie zero star is the cinematic shot!
“ I was frankly laughing at some point as every scene seemed predictable to me, even though they were purposefully meant to be weird.
“ Top 3 - worst movies ever .
“ The Swedes just love to throw in a load of nudity but c'mon guys it was boring in the 70's and its even sadder now that you have to use it to try and excite the viewer.
“ Immersed in music to provoke emotions that the images do not transmit by themselves, it is a film of excessive duration to tell an essentially simple story of fanaticism, cultural shock, materialism and primitivism in a hippie-like community in Sweden, with two pathetic leading characters who have traveled from United States to Scandinavia, and that, at least on my part, did not have my sympathy and did not allow me to connect: a woman who does not stop bawling, clinging to the memory of dead relatives, and a man who, in the end, is nothing more than an insipid stud.
“ This movie is pointless and a waste of time.
“ Stupid, predictable, makes no sense, not interesting at all.
“The film is slow moving with its direction.
“ I can only explain this good rating by the fact, that many young people, who have never seen any of the good old movies made before 2010, are now into reviewing movies, because it is completely mind-boggling to read that anybody enjoyed this movie and found it exciting, interesting or entertaining in any other way.
“ It really dragged on and on.
“ And the ending was very strange and confusing.
“ dont waste your time watching this...
“ It's slow and builds and I think worth the wait.
“ Yawn onto the next
“ It's up there with Melancholia and The Thin Red Line as probably some of the worst movies I've ever seen.
“ It left an intense impression on me, i was shocked, stunned and speechless after the end for quite some time.
“ I'm a patient guy and don't mind long movies, but when the scenes are boring and dragging, it makes it unwatchable.
“ Midsommar is an impressive vehicle for sure, but it does suffer from a couple of flaws, where like I said earlier, it's painful predictability, as to the fates of our young hormone, adrenaline fueled characters.
“ This movie is so slow, it felt like watching a slow motion dressman commercial in slow motion.
“ Pretentious and Pointless .
“ It's unusual horror but the unusual is nothing special, too long and waste of time and most important is not horrific at all.
“an absolute WASTE OF TIME
“ It's slow.. it leads you down one path that plays off the experience of anxiety and other mental/emotional disorders.
“ The cinematography was absolutely stunning, watch in 4k if you can.
“ Cinematic speaking it is great, but the story is unbearable .
“ It was a decent horror, bit slow moving in parts and gory for some people maybe.
“ Don't waste your precious time on this or you will feel totally regretful ...
“ An engaging story, beautiful cinematography, brilliant acting, and real artistic thought put in to the shots.
“ The best bit of acting was in the first 10-15 minutes but after that it was a total snooze fest.
“ It's a horrific, stunning, alluring piece of cinema that easily draws you in with the pleasing aesthetics, amazing acting and hidden motives.
“ It ended with a long, boring, and very shallow movie.
“ This is a very engaging movie with an interesting premise, decent writing, gorgeous cinematography and excellent acting.

“ Long, boring, stupid and above all unintelligent.
“There is no plot.

“ As a Swede i am struggling with a disappointingly non authentic setting, a story i dont know if to take seriously or disregard as uninteresting and, in parts, poor casting.
“ Biggest piece of garbage of my life if you can choose between watching paint dry and this pick the paint .
“ Story and plot are basically non-existent, scares and thrills are simply not there, the pace is slow, characters are undeveloped mono-dimensional cardboard figures...
“Thoughts This like his last movie was a slow predictable movie for people who have not watched the originals.
“ It's devoid of cliché horror tropes which is really refreshing given the state of the horror genre today.
“After a long and, I think, pointless prologue, a group of graduate students arrive at a festival in Sweden that's a 4 hour drive from anywhere.
“ Absolutely a waste of time and completely dreadful.
“ This movie just plain sucks, don't waste your precious time.
“ The movie felt honestly a bit pointless, the end is not there because the plot became too complex and weird where it seemed as if they were struggling to end it.
“ So slow, nothing happend, so bored...
