Sick Product of a Sick System
Good , But It Is Overrated By Some
Very good movie overall, highly recommended. Most of the negative reviews don't have any merit and are all pollitically based. Give this movie a chance at least, and it might give you a different perspective.
The movie turns out to be a little better than the average. Starting from a romantic formula often seen in the cinema, it ends in the most predictable (and somewhat bland) way.
It's a wild concept, alright. A world where humans are hunted and ruthlessly killed by unknown blind creatures who seem to have ultra-sensitive ears and zero tolerance for sound. John Krasinski directs and acts in this emotional thriller that has been sugarcoated with a familial arc just to help it tug at your heart strings as you watch his character and his family of a wife and kids live their life while hiding from these creatures and working towards a future where everyone is wise. The lack of dialogues made A Quiet Place a splendid experience for me because like the creatures I hate noise. But the contrived drama - between Krasinski's character and his daughter - put me slightly off, which was later aggravated by the multiple holes in the plot. The biggest issue was the lack of insight - what are these creatures, where did they come from, and what exactly is their problem - because at one scene they seem to be tipped off even by the slightest noise and the next the characters are running with all their might (even though it's on sand). Non-heterogeneous sequences that make up A Quiet Place makes it an average watch, and a shorter one, thankfully. It could excite people who don't think while watching. Escapists will love this and rave about this. Rumor has it they still do it on Reddit. TN.
I liked everything about this mixture of dystopian science fiction and horror except for its runtime. It reminded me of the sci-fi short stories that I devoured as a teenager and finished reading in 10-15 minutes. At least half the movie could have been cut or condensed. In this golden age of television, it would have been better suited as an episode of a Twilight Zone remake.
Having just watched this on a home Dolby Atmos system (7.1.4) I have to say it is an experience like no other. The sounds from above, as the characters look up, surprise, delight and terrify. A great deal of thought and care went into this and it is worth seeing. Do remember that it is a film with prolonged periods of silence but if you truly understand this before viewing, you won't be disappointed.
Just didnt make enuf sense, too many leaps of faith
