“When the girl witnesses his betrayal, which she not only expects, but almost wills into existence, then she grieves, and her retinue grieve with her, and there is a real sense of the sharing of grief not only making the process easy for her, but more intense, it is paradoxical and palpable, and with a little restraint, it could have been a profound beautiful moment in cinema.
“ 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.
“ A predictable film, full of all kinds of little "colorful" details copied from other genre films.
“I enjoy character development and a good slow burn.....
“ This is a very engaging movie with an interesting premise, decent writing, gorgeous cinematography and excellent acting.
“ 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.
“ 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!
“ 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.

“ Thank you Travis Fimmel for your intense, intelligent and unique portrayal of Ragnar Lothbrok - were it not for you, I probably wouldn't have watched Vikings and therefore I wouldn't know the background for the awesomely gruesome and medieval rituals in Midsommar.
“ A boring costume party trying desperately to be a movie .
“ 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.....
“ Such a fascinating movie.
“The story was great and it keeps you interested all the way through, but it may be very slow for many and unfortunately the pacing is not as smooth as Hereditary, since the difference between them is 20 minutes (or 44 minutes, if you compare it with the Director's Cut), so the film takes it's time and doesn't rush anything, but in some moments it may feel way too long.
“The film is slow moving with its direction.

“ Boring .
“ Banal horror movie who pretend to be great cinema.
“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.
“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.
“ 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.

“ Boring, slow and way too long.

“ Its boring...
“Still, what makes this film compelling is its characters and the journey they go on.
“ Super boring and not worth my time.
“ 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.
“ This movie is similar to Hereditary somehow, but Midsommar is too slow.

“ 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.
“From their arrival on the spot, they will witness unpredictable events, which will become increasingly violent and insidious, to the point of making them the main protagonists without their knowledge.
“ This film was enjoyable because the director played with tone, cinematogrophy, fantasy, and realism to increase the depth and the shock of the story.

“ Pretentious, overlong and predictable .
“ And the location was stunning too.

“ it's 2,5 hours waste of your time!

“ It can be disturbing in so many different ways but always keeps you focused and It's pretty enjoyable.
“ Stupid, pointless, idiotic movie.
“ Some people in the audience left the theater way before the end of the movie, we regret we did not do the same after we watched it until the end.
“ So boring .
“ Until certain point where it started to get kinda of repetitive and boring.
“ Other than that, it was strange, slow, and meandering.
“ Not entirely sure what to make of it, but worth watching once.

“ Please don't waste your time unless you're wasted already .
“ Over long, no surprises, dull lifeless direction.
“ It's a lumbering disjointed thing, limping along for two and a half hours.
“ But for my money Midsommar is just ok, just try and skip all the long drawn out moments of silence throughout it, you'll probably save 30 minutes of your life that way.
“ Such a waste of time.
“ From the strange inhuman way everyone talks, the subtle transitions, and the constant daylight everything contributes to an intense feeling of unease.
“" 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.
“In conclusion Midsommar is a pretentious and unoriginal movie that borrrows too much from the original Wicker Man and if it was any slower it would be going backwards in time.
“ 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.

“ What an utter waste of time.
“ This is a fairly entertaining well semi-horror/dark humor film with a mountain of mostly tolerable plot holes and a jumbled ending and message.
“ 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 slow building story, unsettling suspense and disturbing thoughts about what you are seeing.
“ I feel the ghost of Nicholson's "The Passenger," and "A passage to India" now-a boredom resembling a sand dune.
“ Bizarre (Pointless) Cult Movie .
“ Slow burn movie aimed to shock audiences.
“ Very slow and long.
“ 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.
“ It's actually very boring, very quickly.
“ The movie has no story, no development and no meaning.
“ An hour and a half in and I was watching the clock, bored out of my mind by more unnecessary and gratuitous gore, hoping the whole thing would end soon.
“ Cinema audiences' admiring response to 'Midsommar' is the most mysterious aspect of this ho-hum 'horror' film which shamelessly copycats "The Wicker Man".
“ What a waste of my life.
