Ashdoc's movie review---A quiet place

This film can be viewed because it is a different film from other horror films .

Why the name 'A quiet place' ? Because humans are forced to remain quiet all the time in the scenario painted by the movie . The earth has been invaded by creatures which are armoured on the outside against firepower , which is useless against the armour . They are blind creatures which locate humans and other animals by tracking them by sound and attack them and kill them . So humans are forced to remain quiet all the time , because if they make a loud sound they can be located tracked and killed by the horrid creatures .

The movie shows the travails of a family consisting of parents played by Emily Blunt and John Krasinski , and children played by Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe . The parents lose their third child in the beginning of the movie to the creatures stalking them , because he has been na´ve enough to emit sound from a toy . The rest of the movie shows the remaining family struggling for survival against the creatures constantly on their trail .

The creatures do look duly horrifying and emit horrifying sounds . There are some scary situations that the family has to go through , especially when the character played by Emily is going to give birth to their fourth child and the creature enters their house in response to sound stimulus . The only way to stop the creature is to find a way to overcome it's armour and expose it's inner structure to firepower , and where there is a will there is a way....

Background music is appropriate to the situations , and special effects and photography are decent . Because of lack of paranormal entities the movie is more thriller than horror . There are some nerve wracking moments in the movie .

Verdict---Good .

Three and a half stars out of five .

Re: Ashdoc's movie review---A quiet place

So what is the chink in the armour of these creatures? I mean what is the weakness of these alien creatures?

Re: Ashdoc's movie review---A quiet place

I saw a movie called 'Don't Breathe' - similar premise, kids go into the house of a former commando or something who has lost his eyes. He is a killer though and strong and he can track people from their sound. He also has the presence of mind to level the field by breaking all the light bulbs in the house so that everything is dark.

there is a dark twist near the end revealing the motivations of this guy.

sometimes I don't understand how people make a decision to bring another child into a world populated by aliens who are going to kill anyone that makes a sound!

They are sensitive to high frequency sound . Sound of very high frequency totally disorients them and they start writhing and expose their inner vulnerable parts .

Ashdoc review of don't breathe

Three burglars decide to rob a blind man who has a large sum of money stacked in the safe in his house---money he got as settlement when his daughter got killed in an accident . The blind man lives in an isolated neighbourhood and lives alone---so the task of robbing him seems to be easy . But the blind man is an army veteran and he has a ferocious dog , so for the first time one of the burglars carries a gun with him , even though they have no experience or intentions to use it . The other two burglars do not know of the gun at all , and are shocked by seeing it later .

One of the burglars is a girl ( played by Jane Levy ) and she is pretty with blond hair . One wonders why such a pretty girl would get mixed up with this kind of crime , but as she explains she has had a tough childhood in which her mother used to keep her locked up in the trunk of a car and even now practically neglects her . The burglar girl dreams of moving to California with her cute little sister , and her motive for the burglary is that the money would help her achieve her dreams . One of the two males burglars is also a cute kid who is initially reluctant to join and scrams off for a while on seeing the gun , before deciding to come back .

As the three give the dog some spiked food to eat which puts it to sleep for a while , they enter the house . But the blind man does not turn unconscious by the gas they propel into his room , and that is where things turn wrong . The blind man has a gun too , and being an army veteran he is more prepared to use it . On the other hand the burglars do not have to guts to use their gun , and this turns things really awry for them .

The blind man has far more physical strength than the three , and he is far more vicious than they think . He is able to fire his gun accurately in the direction of sound , and the sound of heavy breathing ( which the terrified burglars are likely to make in their fright ) is where he will fire . So the key word for the burglars is 'don't breathe' while being confronted by the blind man , which fully justifies the title of the movie .

As the burglars cannot escape from the house , they go deep inside it and that is their mistake---for they stumble upon the blind man's dark secret , and that really sets him on finishing them off . So what is the secret that the man is hiding ? Will any of them escape from the situation alive ?

As the man switches off the lights of the house , the movie is in darkness ; another element is the dog who is ferocious when he finally wakes up and has a serious impact on the proceedings . The movie moves forward in the dark rooms and underground corridors of the house and later outside in the surrounding streets , and keeps you tensed all along . The movie is more thriller than horror , though some jolts in the movie remind you of horror movies especially because they are in the typical setting of horror movies---in a darkened house .

Photography and sound effects are appropriate for the situations and the acting is in capable hands . The triumph of the director is in making the criminals look like victims once inside the house and making you sympathise with them ; I was really hoping that the three would escape from the house and escape with the money they came to loot !! So do they ? Watch the movie for that...

Verdict---Good .

Three and a half stars .

This is similar to that M. NIght ShyamaDingDong fellow's movie where aliens come down to earth. Also that Tom Cruise movie where Mars aliens come to earth and then get affected by the virus and bacteria on earth.

Next they should show that aliens visit Delhi and die of smog

But won't the fun of watching the movie vanish if you already know what the secret is I am with Askerduke pai here... please do not put the suspense out here. I am an avid echan and will be disappointed if every time you post a review for an interesting movie... I will get the suspense revealed here itself. Will take the momentum out of watching a movie

The secret is that the blind army veteran has lost his daughter in an accident. So he has kidnapped the girl who was driving the car which caused the accident and made her pregnant by injecting his own sperm into her womb and kept her prisoner , intending to release her after she gives birth to a child . The child will replace his dead daughter.
