Where does Hulu’s No Exit land on the Banana Meter?

Hello and welcome to another weekend of the Banana Meter! For those not aware of how this works, let me explain it to you. First, our critics check out a film. Then, they rate it on our scale of 0-100%, we gather the percentage from all of your critics and that’s how we get our rating on the Banana Meter.

What is the Banana Meter scale, you ask? 

When a film hits above 85% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Bonafide Bananas status.
When a film hits between 55-84% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Ripe status.
When the film hits under 55%, it means it hit Sour Status.

Our next film to hit the Banana Meter is No Exit

Here is what our Ripe Banana Critics are saying about the film:

Abe Friedtanzer

Banana Meter Rating: 83%

Even if some of its plot points aren’t ironclad, No Exit delivers consistent suspense and intrigue, a dark and involving thrill ride that should play well on television screens for its at-home release.

Banana Meter Rating: 70%

No Exit utilizes its short run-time along with its single location and small cast of characters to its advantage, leaving for a nail-biting mystery-filled thriller.

Alex Madden

Banana Meter Rating: 60%

An intense yet predictable thriller that is well-acted and shot and features a great lead performance from Havana Rose Liu. It mostly takes advantage of its single location gimmick by overcoming a fairly weak script that asks its audience to roll with the punches as the insanity dial is cranked up to 11.

Banana Meter Rating: 80%

No Exit is a thrilling, nail-biter of a whodunit that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats from start to finish. Faithful to the source material, Director Damien Power delivers plenty of twists and shocking moments, punctuated by the outstanding lead performance of Havana Rose Liu.

Banana Meter Rating: 40%

A painfully dull thriller with no depth or interesting characters. This blizzard mystery just leaves you out in the cold with nothing to hold onto.

Banana Meter Rating: 60%

No Exit gets off to a promising start, but fails to pick a concrete direction and falls apart in the second half. Some solidly-made tense moments are weighed down by one-too-many plot twists. In the case of this thriller, less would have definitely been more.

Connor Petrey

Banana Meter Rating: 55%

Damien Power’s No Exit is a visually striking horror-thriller that’ll have you waiting with anticipation for each character’s next chess move.

Banana Meter Rating: 40%

No Exit is equal parts tense and gratifying, managing to subvert expectations for the most part, but unfortunately, the clumsy unravelling of the third act mars what could have been a lean, taut action-thriller.

Banana Meter Rating: 60%

A cold and claustrophobic nail-biter that’s more effective than most.

Peggy Marie

Banana Meter Rating: 60%

How do I sum up No Exit exactly.. well it’s not the worst film I’ve seen this year, but it’s a fine 1st time feature directorial debut with enough twists to keep it interesting enough to watch all the way through. And I mean how do you not love Dennis Haysbert in anything.

Steve Kosie

Banana Meter Rating: 30%

I was under the impression this was gonna be more of a mystery than a thriller. Yet if they took a little more time to build any tension I might have been thrilled by this movie.

Banana Meter Rating: 63%

Albeit predictable, once our lead arrives at this rest stop, there is no rest for the weary.

Eli Brau

Banana Meter Rating: 50%

An effectively thrilling first 60 minutes ends in an uneven, off-the-rails third act. My least favorite ending to a film thus far in 2022. Side note: There was like 1 inch of snow. The roads wouldn’t shut down.

Freda Cooper

Banana Meter Rating: 50%

Starting slowly with its familiar stuck-in-a-storm thriller scenario, No Exit pivots into horror for the final third. It doesn’t always hold together convincingly, but there’s a great central turn from Havana Rose Liu (also currently in Apple TV’s The Sky Is Everywhere) and the tension builds nicely in the early sections. Solid Saturday night thrills.

Hector Gonzalez

Banana Meter Rating: 40%

No Exit is a tale of two halves. One is more restrained, and the other is filled with utter violence; this division makes you question who was it meant for.

Full Review

Jack Lautaret

Banana Meter Rating: 58%

No Exit is a mixed bag. There is some good suspense, some brutal horror elements and a nice performance from Havana Rose Liu. Unfortunately, the other performances are dull, the writing is highly predictable and the third act is executed so poorly. A really unpleasant time in the end.

Banana Meter Rating: 80%

No Exit might not break any new ground, however, it’s still a very thrilling ride from beginning to end. The atmosphere and performances absolutely make this film!

Banana Meter Rating: 70%

Here’s a twisted early 2000’s Tuesday Night at the movies fun to be found in No Exit, new on Hulu this week. More intensely violent than you think…and another female-led flick utilizing a nail gun with panache.

Banana Meter Rating: 40%

At first, I was worried there would be no exit from the by-the-numbers narrative but the second half slides into slightly nasty and wicked territory, making for an entertaining conclusion. It overcomes predictable tendancies enough to recommend for a weekend watch. And who doesn’t enjoy a thriller in a blizzard?

Ryan Cam

Banana Meter Rating: 40%

Despite some solid performances, this movie has the worst 3rd act I’ve seen all year so far. I was on board for the first two thirds. And the ending yanked the whole movie. A disappointment to say the least.
