Daniel Kaluuya has responded to Logan Paul’s criticism of his new movie Nope, after the social media star branded it the 'worst film of all time' in a 13-part Twitter rant.

The Oscar winner, 33, stars opposite Keke Palmer in the latest film by acclaimed writer and director Jordan Peele.

The science-fiction horror follows two ranch-owning siblings who recruit a tech salesman and a renowned cinematographer to try and capture and sell video evidence of an unidentified flying object.

After watching the feature, Paul was compelled to share his opinion and highlighted what he believed were plot holes in a rambling Twitter thread.

He also claimed that the movie was too slow and didn't have enough themes to justify its length and pace. Not only that but he described Kaluuya’s part as 'the most mundane, vanilla character I’ve ever seen.'

In one of his 13 tweets, he wrote: "It’s not hard to conceptualize something disturbing (a trained Chimp goes animalistic and mauls an entire set, or a UFO devours anything in its path) — it IS hard to sensibly tie it to the plot, which was done remarkably poor here."

Following Paul’s comments, Kaluuya was asked on Wednesday’s (10 August) Capital Breakfast if he had seen his social media thread - and the actor responded in the most hilarious way possible.

Kaluuya quipped: "Logan Paul, God... we going to talk about this?

"Why is his opinion top of the tree? Everyone’s entitled to their opinion but what’s he done in cinema? Imagine if they asked me about Eric Clapton.

"I’d take everyone’s opinion on, I’ll listen to it but I’m just going, 'I don’t know why you over everybody else'.

"I’m happy to sit down with him… actually would I sit down with him? Nah actually that defeats the point, I wouldn’t sit down with him."

Posh Kenneth coming out with the facts. Watch the trailer below:

While Nope may have missed the mark with Paul, actual film critics have been raving about the flick.

Rotten Tomatoes currently lists the film at 82 per cent, which means it's been certified fresh.

The review site's critical consensus states: "Admirable for its originality and ambition even when its reach exceeds its grasp, Nope adds Spielbergian spectacle to Jordan Peele's growing arsenal."

Paul finished his review by saying: "I love Peele, the VFX and aesthetic. [But] I can feel him attempting to recreate the shock from Get Out and Us.

"Mystery, violent allure and cinematic choices made for the sake of reaction instead of legitimate contribution to the storyline killed this movie for me."

Nope hits UK cinemas today (12 August).
