THE STORY

.
When "Adelaide" was a child, she was subjected to a shock while entering one of the horror houses that are usually available in amusement parks and games, and there she is surprised in a room of mirrors with a girl who looks like her, and she is terrified when she discovers that what she sees is not a reflection of her image in the mirror, which makes her lose her voice.

At this point, the story stops narrating, and takes a big leap in time to find that "Adelaide" has grown and regained her voice, but without the effects of that trauma gone from her, which will show its effects as she resists pressures from her husband "Gabi" and her two children "Zora" and "Jason To visit the family home on the beach of Santa Cruz, where she was traumatized as a child.

With the response of "Adelaide" to pressures, the family moves there to spend their annual leave happily, before four strangers holding hands knock on the family home at night, wearing red suits and carrying scissors, and we soon discover that these strangers are a carbon copy of the family members, but they show features Brutality and anger, and they cannot speak except for the lady among them, who resembles "Adelaide", who tells the latter that they want to kill her family members and take their place.

Soon, the "Adelaide" family manages to escape from the grip of the invaders, and they resort to the family of their friends "Kitty and Josh Tyler" to discover that they too have been subjected to a similar invasion by carbon copies of them, apparently within a collective foray by the carbon copies against their likeminded residents of the city In full.

With the escalation of the event, the film’s dialogues and facts take us to a higher and deeper level of presentation. What seemed to be horror was a thought-provoking entrance raised by the premise of the film that the attackers are the evil identical version of the attackers, which constitutes an initial understanding of what is between the lines of the story of the film, and deciphering its first threshold, i.e. the name the movie; "we".

In all these details lies the true pleasure of the film, it is a dialogue of ideas mixed with pleasure, the viewer does not theorize and does not forget his first task in entertainment, but keeps him in a state of constant stimulation that there is something he has not said yet, and the viewer must capture it.

With the exception of the frank dialogue that takes place between "Adelaide" and its analogy at the beginning of the invasion of the family home at night, in which a clear indication is made that the Red invaders are also Americans, Jordan Peele does not provide an explanation of the events of his film and its symbols distributed in the text in abundance, but respects the mind of his viewers, so he leaves him The freedom to interpret what he sees, which puts the film in front of a potentially long chain of messages and ideas related to its events, is correct with the logic of its owners and the general context in which they receive the film.

The real appreciation in the film remains for its director and writer Jordan Peel, who made, with a modest budget, the second horror film in the history of his artistic experience and the tenth between his long and short films, with the professionalism and passion of those who start his first artistic steps, and thus was able to make a confident step on the technical level of what he presented in The first horror film, "Get Out", went beyond the success of the latter by searching for new intellectual theaters to wear horror dress in his new movie.
