I am surprised this is rated so average. I would have expected something much higher given the cast and crew. Plus the trailer looked absolutely incredible. Jeff Nichols is the mastermind who brought us Mud and the up coming Loving that I absolutely want to see. I don't know why I have taken so long to watch this. It's time now though.

That was so much different than I expected, but s... read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- August 2016 (28 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 51min. First Viewing Too slow and monotonous for its own good, Midnight Special is, nevertheless, a thought sci-fi film about fatherhood. While I wouldn't say that I was in love with a lot of it, the plot felt undercooked and the ending was a mixed bag, I can say that there was too much good to write it off. The cast is excellent, the look and style evoke 1970s flicks, and there are some genuinely lovely moments. If Nichols had just had a clearer vision of what he wanted, the film wou"

"Im really starting to like Jeff Nichols movies. First Mud, then Take Shelter and now Midnight Special. His film making skills as a writer is steady and that final touch as a director is always satisfying, touching and chilling. Very remarkable."

"Midnight Special is a modern day science fiction movie with a very old school feel running through its veins. It's about an eight-year-old boy who possesses otherworldly powers on the run with his father from the Feds and a religious cult. I enjoyed the mystery surrounding the boy's powers and how in the end some of the answer is revealed (not all though) in a captivating way. The story, written by Jeff Nichols, is a very good one and at the heart of that story is a rather beautiful relationship"

" 1 January.  A boy with unusual powers, together with his father and a friend are on the run from authorities bound to a place that may provide the answers to their mystery. Midnight Special is a Spielberg meets Cronenberg ride to one big reveal in the end. "

That was so much different than I expected, but so well done. It's a beautiful film with special effects used quite well. I was never entirely sure what was about to happen. There was one scene where I reacted audibly. It's a slow burner for sure, but I'd say it really pays off in the end. The story is well put together and actually feels pretty original despite having familiar aspects. The ending was intriguing.
