‘Freaks: You’re One of Us’ is a new 2020 Netflix Original comedy/adventure superhero movie. It’s originally an international film that has been dubbed over to English. This film reminds me of a cross over between ‘Kick-Ass’, and ‘Freaks’. It’s about a poor meek waitress who lives in a world where people have superpowers. These people are referred to as Freaks, and the government provides little blue pills to suppress their powers for their own “good”. She realizes she’s one of these freaks and decides to quit taking the blue pills.
This is a great concept, the trailer makes it looks awesome, and the story is there. Unfortunately, that’s about as far as this movie goes. It has a few good parts here and there but overall it’s a hour and a half snooze fest. I paused this movie more than once just to see how much it was left, it’s not a painful watch, but pretty close. The dubbing is monotone and doesn’t match up to what’s going on. I always say Netflix originals are great but this one doesn’t fit the bill. I give this one a hard pass with a 3/10.
