Logan Paul, the older brother of Jake Paul who has found himself embroiled in controversy multiple times over the past year, has released a new movie to a lackluster response.
Titled “The Thinning: A New World Order,” Paul plays Blake Redding, the main character of the movie.
Currently, the movie has a rating of 3.6 on IMDB which would make it the 60th worst rated film on the site, alongside movies like “Jaws 3D” and “The Flinstones in Viva Rock Vegas.”
Logan’s reputation precedes him in some of the reviews, but reviews based around Paul go both directions.
User Apoorvpatole rated it 1/10 and said: “Logan Paul’s acting skills can very much be compared to a sloth dying of constipation.”
But at the same time user Shaik - 74302 rated it 10/10 and said: “Awesome movie . Logan Paul is a superb actor. They should release this movie into theatres. Haters gonna hate cuz Logan is A kid works day and night . #Logang4lyf”
While there are definitely some in-depth positive reviews, some users called into question the accounts who posted positive reviews as possibly fake.
BananaHeads rated the video 1/10 and said “The first four 9/10 star reviews are all from brand new users with only one review, yep, this mess of a film. It's so obvious it's laughable. At what point is IMDB going to do something about this. It's unfair to everyone.”
This movie is the sequel to “The Thinning,” a similar movie released in 2016 that also starred Paul and Peyton List, an actress best known for her roles in “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” and the Disney Channel series “Jessie.”
This movie was released as a YouTube original and prospective viewers will have to have a subscription to YouTube Premium to judge for themselves.
