Watch "Match Point" instead

This is a tough one. I liked the concept and the overall story. However i feel like it missed the mark on occasions.

The acting was decent. Felt like each character was built upon chemistry and realism. It kept me entertained for the most part.

The times jumps at the beginning worked and created suspense. Leaving the viewer unsure of what the history our 3 characters share however, the time jumps became a bit too rapid and i personally found it harder to keep up with where we are in the story. I feel like they could've left out a few scenes to make the story flow smoother.

The soundtrack was interesting. Not sure if it suited the mood of the film. But my biggest gripe is the ridiculously slowed down ending. Not sure what the director was thinking with that one.

The conclusion felt like it was going on for 1 hour and i felt it a little cheesy with the last scene of the film.

Overall I see a lot of influence from the film "Match Point" starring Scarlet Johansson. In my opinion that film was far more successful in what "challengers" was attempting.

Overall, bit hit and miss. Some decent moments but nothing to get you excited about or talk about after.

Hard movie to follow

Most of the scenes were shot very well and creatively, however the POV shots felt a bit out of place, a bit like I was watching a Go-pro vlogger or something.

The music was okay but the dubstep/electronic music was overused and got boring fast.

The storyline was hard to follow with the constant flashbacks and fast forwards - a linear plot would've been better and produced more tension.

The ending felt incomplete to me, maybe I missed something.

I felt like the movie was unclear overall and hard to interpret.

Spoilers: My favourite part of the movie was the chemistry between Art and Patrick, I wish they explored that more and just ditched Tashi.

I didn't like Tashi's character she was manipulative and I didn't understand why she was forcing Art to keep playing tennis. (Love Zendaya though)

I also didn't understand why Tashi started hating Patrick? Was it just because he wasn't there when she got injured?

A tepid tennis love triangle

I saw this movie today at an early access showing. The movie had received an excellent critical rating so far and I try to go see every movie A24 puts out. Unfortunately in seeing the film I left feeling a little disappointed. This film showcases great performances from its leads and above average cinematography. However I thought the script was nothing special. The dialogue in the movie gets pretty cringy whenever it tries to be heartfelt particularly the beach scene which gave me second hand embarrassment. If you are going to this movie in hopes for something provocative or sexy I would save your money. I frankly think the advertising for this film plays up this element of the story because they realize the product is middling at best. Although on a final note I would say if you are a big fan of tennis or Zendaya it's worth a watch, particularly for the latter who is proving once again she will be a Hollywood mainstay for decades to come.
