The Voyeurs 2021 Movie Review

Overall the movie was enjoyable. Production and cinematography looked great. All 4 leads did a very good job. The main couple was likable & believable and the 2nd couple were attractive enough that you could imagine people would be checking them out. It also had a good soundtrack.

Also, I like the ‘Eye’ theme throughout. From the sublime opening credits, song choices, Pippa’s job, to the scene when Pippa and Seb first meet we get a very artsy shot of just her eye, then his. It was all very well done.

There were a few things that occurred that I didn’t see coming and I was very curious to see how it would play out. Also no spoilers, but I did actually like what I thought was going to be the main ending at the gallery. But then we got another 5-10 minute twist ending and that, IMO, let the film down a little bit. Sometimes less is more.

The Voyeurs is a fantastic erotic thriller harkening back to the days where made for video titles featuring similar plots were all the rage at the local video store – so it won’t come as a surprise to seasoned fans of the genre that there are multiple twists and turns along the way when a young couple, Pippa and Thomas (played by Sydney Sweeney and Justice Smith respectively), moves into an apartment and immediately discover that they have a perfect view into the sex life of their neighbours across the street. Becoming enraptured by these strangers, it becomes an unhealthy obsession for our leads, especially Pippa as the duo buy binoculars and go to extreme, and illegal, lengths to listen in on what’s being said.

As with most movies of this ilk, it’s best not to get dogged down by the logic or any potential plot holes – these films work due to their stylishness and eroticism and The Voyeurs features both in spades. Alongside the lovely Ms Sweeney, there’s also the incredibly beautiful Natasha Liu Bordizzo as the distressed wife whose life is being spied on, plus there’s plenty of nudity (both female and male) to keep everyone happy.
