Better than expected, justifying the hype.
21 August 2018 | by paulclaassenSee all my reviews

I initially did not want to watch this, as I feared it would be similar to the highly acclaimed yet utterly boring films 'It comes at night' and 'It follows'. 'A Quiet Place' was equally acclaimed, and in this instance, I must admit I was wrong and the film justified the high acclaim. This is a very unique film and interesting concept. Despite the very little dialogue or sound in the film, this was remarkably never boring. On the contrary, I was completely spellbound and literally sat on the edge of my seat waiting for the family to make a mistake.

What I found interesting about this film compared to most other post-apocalyptic films is the fact they never show or tell you what actually happened for the family to be in the situation they're in. But I enjoyed the fact they kept the plot simple, and never over-complicated it with back stories and twists. This is essentially a survival tale. The film had to rely (a lot!) on the actors' abilities to make this work, and they did! The acting was superb - especially John Krasinski, who is ultimately the hero.

Naturally - in a film like this - you're bound to have plot flaws and there are a number of them. My biggest issue was right in the beginning when the family let their 4-year old son walk BEHIND all of them, without anyone even holding his hand. They were so concerned about sound and the elements surrounding them, yet this was apparently perfectly in order. There's also a scene where they play Monopoly and even use fibre pieces instead of metal. From outside, you surely won't be able to hear ordinary Monopoly pieces on a board from the confines of your home, so this was taking the idea just a bit too far. Also, why are they using lanterns and candles if they have electricity? The creatures are blind anyway. Keeping the newborn baby silent was also not believable. It's simply impossible to keep a baby quiet at all times. The film would have done better without the baby.

Despite all these and numerous other flaws, though, it was a very good film and very different. The chemistry between the characters were also very good (although I found their daughter Regan a bit annoying). Oh, and what I wouldn't give to kiss John Krasinski's thick moustache...just saying...
