The big sci-fi extravaganza “Nope,” Jordan Peele’s third movie, doesn’t quite reach the magnificent heights of “Us” or “Get Out,” but it does broaden the filmmaker’s perspective. Without giving anything away, a bizarre array of characters fight against an object that resembles a flying saucer and is causing trouble at horse farms.

There are some unforgettable scenes and imagery in the movie, notably the sitcom shoot gone wrong that begins it, an all-time classic fake-out fright in the middle, and a haunting glimpse of alien physiology. However, a big portion of the movie plays more as an adventure than a horror movie. Repeat viewings of “Nope,” which was expertly captured by Hoyte van Hoytema, reveal considerably more.
