Midnight Special is extraordinary
5 second plot: A father and his young boy are on the run. Well, not really on the run. Rather headed somewhere while being chased by several bogeys. The kid is special. But they are just beginning to realize how very special he really is.
5 second review: This is something very special (sorry about the gazillion specials, but it is) indeed. I wasn't sure it was going to be able to deliver in the end. But it does. Everything lines up perfectly. It looks easy, but I'm sure it wasn't. There's a very talented filmmaker at work here. Of course, you have to be a little bit into mystery and sci-fi to appreciate this fully.
