Netflix viewers left ‘wanting more’ after watching new dystopian sci-fi movie

The film has 88 percent on Rotten Tomatoes

If you were looking for something to watch on Netflix, we've got you covered.

The Kitchen landed on the streaming service on January 19 and has so far gone down a storm with viewers.

The synopsis for the movie reads: "A story of fatherhood and love for the community... Every city has a Kitchen. In a dystopian London, the gap between rich and poor has been stretched to its limits."

The flick comes courtesy of British filmmakers Kibwe Tavares and Daniel Kaluuya, and stars Top Boy's Kane Robinson.

Robison is best known for playing Sully in the fan favorite, while producer and director Daniel Kaluuya has starred in blockbuster movies like Black Panther, Get Out, Judas and the Black Messiah and Nope.

Since its release, The Kitchen has bagged itself an impressive 88 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer.

Elsewhere, people have been sharing their thoughts of the movie online.

One person said of the film on Facebook page Netflix Bangers: "Very good! Ready for the next one."

"I like it. A must watch for me," wrote someone else.

Top Boy actor Kane Robinson plays Izi in The Kitchen.

A third described it as 'brilliant and very moving', as a different social media user said: "Left me confused and wanting more!"

Others on X wrote: "The Kitchen on Netflix is cinematic poetry. I loved it."

"Loved The Kitchen on Netflix. Bit heartbreaking, hopeful, humanity. Recommend," someone else raved.

But the comments weren't all positive as some labelled The Kitchen as 'rubbish'.

"Turned it off after about 20 minutes bored me to death," wrote one critic.

A different person penned: "It was too slow for me. Fell asleep like 4 times."

"Definitely a kitchen party to stay away from," quipped a third.

Away from social media, many publications have given The Kitchen three out of five stars, The Guardian, Empire, and The Telegraph included.

People who have watched the movie may have noticed an unexpected face - retired Arsenal footballer, Ian Wright.

Explaining why they chose Wright to star Lord Kitchener in The Kitchen, Kaluuya's co-director Kibwe Tavares explained to Radio Times: "We wanted someone that could really sort of, like, weather The Kitchen through the storms they were going through.

"And then we started to sort of think about him more in terms of looking at his background, the community work he's done.

"He's quite an advocate for different communities and different people, and then that's a thing that he could build on in finding that as his first sort of acting role."

While surprising, this wasn't Wright's first acting gig. The football pundit has also starred in 2011 movie Gun of the Black Sun, and even featured in an episode of Ted Lasso.

The Kitchen is now streaming on Netflix.
