Terrible

All 5 people in the theatre walked out, character is not at all believable. Acting was good but the writing was terrible

Dragged down by too much nonsense

Fairly straightfoward and predictable, but nonetheless Huppert brings a chilling performance as the unhinged title character that may make you wary of helping strangers out from now on. The big reveal is spoiled in the trailers, and it come pretty early on. It would've been better had it been delayed a little, after the 2 characters had spent more time together and a few scenes of Greta acting crazy at times to have Frances grow some suspicion. But the main problem is how illogical/stupid the other characters are, beginning with Frances either unable or unwilling to block Greta's number despite the obvious problems, and upping the ante with the ending. All the ridiculousness is summed up one face-palm worthy quote: "What do we tell the police?" Gee, what actually happened might be a good idea.

So-so stalker drama features great performances from Isabelle Huppert and Chloë Grace Moretz

"Greta" (2018 release; 98 min.) brings the story of Greta Hideg. As the movie opens, we see Greta walking away from the subway. Moments later, a young lady (we later learn she is Frances) finds a purse left behind in the subway. In the purse is a NYC ID card, and when Frances drops by Greta's to return the purse, Greta is overjoyed and invites her in for coffee. The two hit it off and Frances returns to help Greta pick out a dog at the animal shelter. Greta confesses to being very lonely. Then, Frances makes a startling discovery at Greta's house... At this point we are 15 min. into the movie but to tell you more of the plot would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out. Couple of comments: this is the latest from writer-director Neil Jordan, who won an Oscar for the screenplay of "The Crying Game" all those years ago. Here he brings us an unlikely, if not implausible, stalker drama (and more?). It is very clear from early on exactly how this all is going to play out, yet Jordan still felt it necessary to pepper the scenario with moments that just make you shake your head. Just one example: when the stalking is going full-scale, Frances is worried about running into Greta again. Wouldn't you know it: of the thousands of random subway stops and cars, Frances gets on and who's on that very same subway car? You guessed it, I mean, c'mon already! It's a darn shame as the lead performances from Isabelle Huppert and Chloë Grace Moretz are quite enjoyable, but they can only do so much with a script that is riddled with implausible moments and/or utterly predictable overall story lines. "Greta" premiered at last Fall's Toronto International Film Festival, and it finally was released wide this weekend. The Friday early evening screening where I saw this at here in Cincinnati was attended poorly (6 people, including myself). I honestly can't see this movie lasting long in theaters.For that it is too uneven and frankly just so-so. But I did enjoy the performances from Isabelle Huppert (now 65 years young, if you can believe it) and Chloë Grace Moretz. If you are a fan of stalker movies and some such, I'd readily suggest you check this out, be it in the theater, on VOD or eventually on DVD/Blu-ray, and draw your own conclusion.
