Don’t Look Up (2021): A Political Satire That Falls Flat

Don’t Look Up is a political satire that tells the story of two astronomers who discover that a comet is heading towards Earth. The movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence as the two astronomers who try to warn the world about the impending disaster.

The movie has an impressive cast and some funny moments, but it ultimately falls flat. The movie is too political in nature and feels like it’s trying too hard to make a point. The movie’s message about climate change and the media’s obsession with ratings is heavy-handed and lacks subtlety.

The movie also suffers from pacing issues. The movie is over two hours long and feels like it could have been trimmed down. The movie’s climax is also underwhelming and doesn’t deliver the emotional punch that it should.

Overall, Don’t Look Up is a forgettable movie that tries too hard to be relevant.
