A Quiet Place is the type of film that hinges on good cast and a good director. Krasinski knocks both out of the park. It is tense, interesting, and novel, all while sticking to the strong and uncomfortable genre of horror. Emily Blunt and the child actors also kill it. The plot wavers at points and there are wholes in the concept, but these don't detract from A Quiet Place being one of the strongest films this year.

Very good movie. It's short, pretty intense when it needs to be, and surprisingly quite emotional. I almost cried towards the end myself. The writing is what really carries it. It's smart, very detailed, and fairly unpredictable. The writing and performances are pretty good, and I think that's why I liked it. Good entertainment!

Nothing happens. The first act is a whiteboard in the Office that says "CREATURES: Blind, Attack Noise, Armor, how many are there? 3 CONFIRMED." The second act is 60 minutes of nothing happening until Emily Blunt pulls a Marv in Home Alone. The third act is the second act but with less sign language and a moment way too obvious to have to foreshadow three times. Scary the way 12 jump scares in 90 minutes is scary. Seriously, this is a 99% on Rotten Tomatoes?

The pathetic premise is laughable. A sightless armored creature with incredible hearing that stalks and kills everything that moves. The gaping hole in the plot is how easy they are to attract and that modern military tactics had not easily wiped them out already. If you can somehow get over this insane backdrop, then the acting and suspense is quite good. Many extra points for Emily Blunt, John Krasinski and Millicent Simmonds for excellent acting. Great sound. Weird creatures but good CGI.

Having constant scary music and jump-scares in "quiet" scenes actually hurts the premise of this movie. Characters were making dumb choices non-stop that even under my suspension of disbelief was crossing the line. The logic behind what the monsters can and can't hear constantly changes. Overall, a fantastic premise hurt by sticking to clichéd Hollywood Horror movie tropes and a soundtrack that doesn't know when to stay quiet. Maybe it would have actually worked better without a soundtrack.

Was expecting A24 styled horror. Got Signs 2.0. Surpringly okay with that. The story had some logical problems (why the HELL would you not set up camp near the waterfall, or any place NOT quiet for that matter?) but all in all I enjoyed it.

Kind of fun, kind of stupid. The more you think about it, the more it crumbles under the weight its own unwieldy concept, but it contains enough directorial bite and tension-filled moments to patch over most of its glaring plot holes. And I for one was glad to see the fake baby from American Sniper finally get another juicy role.

A mess from beginning to end with acting that wouldn't even make the cut on a children's television program. They slap together a bunch of generic monster traits and quickly disregard any sort of logic that they themselves establish in order to create an atmosphere that is more laughable than anything else. Good horror is about world and character building, which are both obviously absent in this mess of a film.

I was thoroughly unimpressed with this one. I never really had much taste for horror that relies chiefly on tensity to scare, preferring blood and guts and surprise. There are some irritating logical issues with the story, but what put the final nail in the coffin for me was the abhorrent deus ex machina at the end a la "Signs", only this movie didn't have the courtesy to make it a surprise. I was downright offended.

Definitely one to see in theatres (and probably not on a Friday/Saturday night); the hush of the audience is almost part of it. Yes, there are plot holes and the monsters make little sense (it's basically a remake of The Triffids, including the deusexmachinesque ending), but the sheer tension it builds with every little noise and the believable family dynamics really get the job done.

Spoilers abound: I don't like the use of pregnant women for suspense, and I'm completely removed from a movie when a newborn doesn't act like a newborn. If the movie was called A Loud Place, you'd still hear that baby's cries over the waterfall. I don't know how I feel about the creatures being a combination of the Predator, a praying mantis, and a cantaloupe. The last line of saudade's review is brilliant.

The shocking opener and slow-burning rising action are the best part of the film and are brilliantly suspenseful, but questionable elements (the silo, the alien design, the culmination of the 'weakness') hinder it from coming to an equally masterful fulfillment. The uninteresting creature design (visually and sonically, the latter an especial disappointment considering) is ultimately the greatest diminishing effect of an otherwise powerful picture.

Like the fool I am I went in thinking this could be my favorite of the year so far. High expectations naturally causes disappointment but the movie is still good. Nice family dynamic and emotional beats. It maybe focuses a bit too much on jump scares and it's hard not to think of ways they could have soundproofed their home even more (or moved into an abandoned radio station or something). Still it's good and worth the watch.

John Krasinski, you beast, give me a second serving of this shit. This was one hell of a time. I even cried a little. Demonstrates what's already known: to get fully on board with a far-out premise (and overlook some plot inconsistencies) all you need is thoroughly excellent production. Nail hit directly on head? Killing it?

I want to know what decibel they can't reach, and I want them to have a meter for that. I also don't want them to live in a creaky, uninsulated house, away from noises that could muffle theirs. ..The focus isn't on the creatures, but rather, how their existence causes this family to drown in restraint. Underdeveloped monsters and indiscreet foreshadowing make it less effective/memorable as a horror, but the second half made me want more. I liked the ending, when Jim finally bought Pam a coke.

If you'll pardon the pun, it speaks volumes that the first few scenes elicited a quaking "oh no, not this again" from me. Krasinski has obviously seen very few horror films, mostly recent, mostly terrible, and no one broke it to him that he's allowed to be creative. The pseudu-intellectualism of crap like "It Comes at Night" is here, along with the gimmicks from "Hush" and "Don't Breathe" and monsters from the corner of "Alien" and "The Descent". Pretentious, maudlin, full of shitty jump scares.

A tight, solid little thriller that uses excellent production and smart dramatic tension. The sound design is to die for. The plot's a little wobbly and occasionally dips into Horror Movie Syndrome, but overall it's a very fun roller coaster of a flick.

Boasting some of the most effective sound design in recent years, A Quiet Place proves that silence can be one of the most uneasy things by using it as its primary means of building suspense. Krasinski's acting, directing, and writing are all very good here, as is his chemistry with Blunt and the performances of the rest of the cast. The film doesn't go outside the traditional horror box too often, but its ability to weave a family drama into its plot makes the characters' plight much more

Don't know that I've ever seen a horror quite like this before, if for no other reason than, this movie is perhaps the strangest love letter ever written to one's wife. Think about it. Krasinski wrote, directed, produced, and performed this movie, opposite his wife, and she is FAR AND AWAY the movie's biggest badass; maybe in all of cinema this year. She steps on an exposed nail while in labour, and doesn't crack. Emily Blunt is a superhero, and this is one great damn movie. Krasinski nailed it.

I get a lot of Signs crossing over with Venom is this film. That's not to say that Krasinski didn't do great work with this, because he did. Thanks to a lot of creative diversions, and use of manipulating sounds, the movie was very entertaining throughout. The characters themselves aren't deemed to cliche/horror archs, and while not really deep, are much smarter than you'd expect. However I found it kinda predictable, and not as unique as the trailers had me thinking. Solid nonetheless.

Either this was a short overstretched to fill a feature-length run time, or just a series of half-baked ideas lazily cobbled together under one premise. The plot and established laws are followed inconsistently at best, suspense is over-egged in parts and then completely forgotten in others, and there's not a shred of originality anywhere. Husband/wife team Krasinski & Blunt simply don't have the acting chops to get through a 'silent' film without hamming up every scene they're in either. Awful.

Maybe it was a good movie before the studio execs got their grubby hands on it. Maybe originally it didn't have a soundtrack, but they were like "What? You GOTTA have a soundtrack, I got just the guy to score this. Oh and let's explain what's going on more. Let's have a white board where the main guy writes 'WHATS THEIR WEAKNESS!?' Oh and make the parents selfish millinials who mean well but fuck up absolutely everything. Oh and one last thing: make the main guy look like Pirlo."

How Michael Bay made (okay, produced) a movie with so few explosions, I will never know. Still, even if someone gave Michael Bay a bag of footstep-muffling sand for every explosion he'd ever orchestrated in all his previous movies combined, it still wouldn't be enough to muffle the footsteps required to plant a field of corn big enough to ensure Orville Redenbacher's legacy lives on, long into the post-apocalyptic future.

I think it has a great concept, and it's as if the writers knew that, and then kinda stopped trying after that. The film tried to have suspense, but it wasn't very well handled. There were jump scares, sure, but that's just loud music, and anyone can do that. Lots of contrived exposition. I didn't really connect with the characters. I just think a lot more could've been achieved with the solid concept, and by the ending (which was a cop-out), I was mostly just disappointed.

I liked this so much. Well, like, it's a complicated word. Got me averting my gaze, crouching, curling up in a fetal position, clutching the hand of my friend. Afraid to make any sound. This was so tense and intense. And not only was the sound expertly deployed, but the family dynamics were, beautiful, touching and detailed. I love what the camera can do without that many lines. And how much meaning you can find in silence and gazes and touch.

The current cut just doesn't work. It should 've been either a short or 120-140 min film instead. I like the look and the feel of AQP but in the end it just lacks a good script and a better director. Also (spoiler) there was no sense in killing off the father, the decision he makes doesn't make any sense, felt rushed, including the ending. AQP could 've been much better. Too bad.

As a rule horror films don't do much for me so perhaps that was what kept me from getting as much out of this as everyone else seems to. Certainly Blunt is fantastic; Krasinski does a decent enough job of directing (although the first killing is way too telegraphed & happens exactly when you think it will); & the script delivers the kind of clever How'd I Miss That solution for the monsters that all great scripts need, but the family's so generic I was bored when they weren't being attacked.

Wanted to love it, but I didn't get it or had set my expectations too high. Didn't find the bad guys scary, and usually get terrified at horror movies but didn't get any adrenalin from this one. I couldn't suspend disbelief enough to get into the premise. Definitely shouldn't have watched on a laptop screen, was probably great in the cinema. Next time will watch on a rainy night on a big screen after 3 cups of coffee.

I loved Don’t Breathe, and even though A Quiet Place isn’t the first Horror Film I’ve seen utilize sound, it’s just as good if not better. The film is very well made, the Silo scene is incredible, and it’s fairly difficult to predict, with almost none of the characters ever feeling “safe” (although I had my guesses on who may or may not die). The only things I could criticize are the sister being slightly annoying at times and the score. I think I’d have preferred no music.

In a world almost completely depopulated by blind monsters with super sensitive hearing, a family struggles to survive in utter silence. It's an intriguing if utterly ridiculous premise (no one in this family ever sneezes or farts, apparently), but the film's internal logic is consistent and the acting performances are universally solid. The trick that they eventually used to defeat the monsters seemed really obvious though, so it seems pretty unlikely that no one thought of it for so long.

A movie that knows exactly what it wants to be. The restraint Krasinski demonstrates here cannot be understated, in concept, visualization, and performance. By simplifying characterization and concept, the narrative becomes a series of brilliantly realized set pieces. These unfolding pieces, however well-paced and acted, lapse into contrivance at times, but this does not detract from how impressively entertaining and simple this is. Go see this in the cinema or with as best sound quality possibl

The production quality and performances really drive this cleverly proposed story and allow it to being fairly scary. Honestly, there are countless questions I had about the logic of this world and plot mechanics, but the impression and effective suspense that is evoked within this film are enough to overwhelm them. It's going to be a memorable piece of contemporary horror, though I'm not sure if the great suspension of disbelief required to fathom the rules of this world will make it a classic

Never have kids. Starts well but forgets logic in the back third. So this family, living for over a year in relative silence, don't have a meet up point despite 3 potential threats? When they get separated, the kids don't understand that a flashlight would act as a lighthouse--if only they were somewhere high to use it! Near the end, the threat was over and they made it much worse. Finale is a gimmick. Did love the pivotal scene with Emily though, so it may be worth watching for that.

Excellent camerawork, soundscapes (the mournful recurring theme is a nice addition), and acting (see brilliant Blunt's brutal birthing escapade), with effective family drama underlying the tense horror (see the shocking pre-title climax). Normally that'd be plenty to distract me from any plot/concept holes, but in this case they're too frequent and glaring (like, you literally just showed me a newspaper clipping saying the monsters are indestructable and now they just killed one with a gun).

A neat concept mired by the fact that it can only function when the cast act like the biggest morons imaginable. Why do these characters take so many unnecessary risks?

For this to work the audience needs to care about the characters, but the rules of the game are such that we can't do that. There's no backstory and they can't talk so we're left with watching people we don't know busy themselves with the mechanics of avoiding things we don't understand. The end result is that any enjoyment comes merely from appreciating how the director manages to manipulate these artificial elements in a way that's occasionally able to generate tension. That's not a good film.

For the film, the limitation to 'speak' and make noise is a horrifying fact setting the stage for the antagonism. It thinks that being unable to 'dominate' nature --our whole civilization is nothing but a huge grumble growing as we exploit the nature more and more-- is a frightening thing as it laments the white middle class consumerism. Contra this belief, such a deprivation could be a hope for a more peaceful life. Wouldn't it be beautiful to coexist with nature's sounds w/o repression?

Some movies certainly make more sense than others, but I don't really get people who revel in spotting plot holes. I always try to do the opposite. That is, I either ignore the plot holes or try to come to the movie's rescue by making a case for why a particular flaw might not be glaringly idiotic after all. Bottom-line: I enjoyed the hell out of this original monster movie and have no particular need (and definitely no wish) to try to tear it apart by pointing out its ostensible shortcomings.

Horror is pretty much my least favourite genre of film, so I was pleasantly surprised by this. Builds tension through effective build-up and pay-off, and is efficient and lean at a well-paced 90 minutes. The family dynamics are a little empty and simplistic but still effectively made me care about the characters more than most other horror films do and Blunt completely nails it (see what I did there?) in her role. Great to see ASL in a mainstream film, it really needs to be used more.

Thrilling and Original, "A Quiet Place" will surprise viewers like no other horror movie in recent years. It is a family drama at its heart, yet it still give you the fright and thrill of watching a modern horror classic in the making.John Krasinski from the office with the always talented Emily Blunt, who also his real life wife, managed to craft a seemingly experimental horror that conveys a genuinely heartwarming tale of family redemption.

Very well done, extremely clever. Could fit right into the Clover field franchise as well

A lot rested on the foley. When you give everything in the movie the proper thought that the premise demands, there are a lot of things that don't quite make sense or seem a little dumb. Maybe not quite plot holes, somewhere between plot holes and inconsistencies. They straight up stole the Sicario theme, didn't help that the Sicario 2 trailer played right before this to remind you of the score. Exceedingly Bland. Drowning in corn sure must be scary.

Fantastic performances by the cast, Emily Blunt and the kids especially. There's a lot to explore with the idea of a mostly quiet film, it definitely lets the acting and facial expressions shine in certain scenes. I didn't really buy into the melodrama of the characters though, I found it to be very cliche overall.

This was good until the end. I thought it ended oddly and abruptly given how the rest of the story unfolded. Still quite entertaining and well done for Krasinski.

Decently scary movie that relies so much on acting more than anything else. Emily Blunt deserves an Oscar for that performance. The weakest part of the plot, for me, was the scary but not so scary monster. Wish they created something less generic/used to add to our imaginations.

The second movie I've seen make great use of Millicent Simmonds (Wonderstruck). I hope there are more roles out there for her because she is a great young actress. This movie provided a new twist on a plot that has existed for ages. Yeah, sure it borrows from Signs and 10 Cloverfield Lane, but it all fit together well. Excellent soundtrack, but no soundtrack would have also worked with this movie. Ending may have been a bit rushed.

Silly decisions aside its remarkably well made, and cleverly written and directed.

Krasinski lined up all the pieces right and began to knock down each piece in a cool new way. Then characters who spent most of the movie trying absolutely everything to be calculated make horrible blunders and it leads to action sequences. It starts off really strong, the first 30 to 35 minutes are absolutely gripping, but after that it trails off into a very predictable horror flick. It was the smaller scenes which gave the intense focus and survival instinct the most impact.

Feels like a shitty remake of a decent film. It's a pity one is not allowed anymore to just have fun and shoot a straight horror movie (and the premise here is just crying for it). Everything should be a statement. There are just too many entries on the director's check list and too few skills in his portfolio.

It exceeded my expectations and then some. I was left feeling that much of the criticism it has drawn is a little hypersensitive and focused on elements that the film itself is clearly happy to relent on. The tension, atmosphere, family dynamic, the stuff Krasinski is really pushing are amazingly on-point. Krasinski’s camera work is wonderful, the use of sound and the score are all so satisfying. AQP won me over quickly and never lost my admiration.

Great concept. Well directed and the atmosphere is perfectly set. Terrific performances all around and you can tell they all share great chemistry to make this work. The silence certainly creates a lot of tension, and it also heightens the emotions as the film progresses. For all this though, I think it is undone by the reveal, which happens early on, and the ending. It isn't terrible, it just doesn't match up to what came before it.

Fun, even if it gives away the central plot point way too early. I don't mind its obviousness (the writing's literally on the wall!), as the situation is itself pretty compelling. It strikes me as something of a fable about parental fear--we know there are evils in the world trying to harm and even kill our children, but we know little about the shape of these evils. We live our lives defensively trying to survive, rather than developing strategies to overcome them.

But if the ambient noise makes it safe to hang out by the river and they get their food from the river why don’t they just go live by the river?

It would be almost criminal to keep Emily Blunt barefoot and pregnant in any other movie.
