3.5/5

This movie follows a family who lives in a post apocalypse time. The world is overrun by large creatures who hunt without eyesight, only sound. If you make sound, they will find you. The family must live in silence using sign language to communicate with each other. With a very pregnant wife, ready to go into labour any day, they must devise a plan to help her deliver the baby safely and quietly without endangering the family. They face hardships as they fight, feel pain, happiness, sadness, and joy in silence. They try to connect and bond with each other without talking.

Evelyn Abbott, played by Emily Blunt, is the devoted mother and wife, pregnant and near labour. Lee Abbott, played by John Krasinski, is the husband and father, fighting, protecting, and providing for his family. Regan, Marcus, and Beau Abbot, played by Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, and Cade Woodward, are the Abbott children.

I liked this movie however because they had to live in silence the whole time it seemed very boring with no sound. This movie is quite long and very dragged out which makes the silence seem so much longer. I think that the idea, themes, and messages in this movie are really nice, showing family values, hope, and love. This is a very nice, sentimental movie that I would definitely recommend to anyone however you must be warned it is a little boring. It’s a very sweet movie with many happy, sad, and emotional parts.

Big boney, super fast alien creatures with sharp toothy mouths that will get you when you make the slightest sound. That. Is. Creepy. A suspenseful, terrifying 90 minutes.

Outstanding horror film, not too gory but suspenseful and of course excellent sound design and direction. Great if you like horror that isn't too gory (still some gore of course).

With only two dozen lines of spoken dialogue in its 90-minute running time, director John Krasinski’s monster movie makes excellent use of camerawork, sound editing, and an electro-pulse score that beats like a frantic heart. The result is one of the scariest fright flicks to come slithering out of Hollywood in years. Let’s start with the monsters—misshapen CGI creatures precariously balanced on long boney claws, hovering between spiders and midnight bogeymen—the perfect nightmare creations to go with the film’s rural setting of tangled forests and dark starry nights. With so much quiet to go around, Krasinski heightens every incidental sound, like a stifled scream or the scrape of hideous claws ascending a staircase, in order to wring maximum terror from a minimum of decibels. It’s the cast however who give the knife its most agonizing twists for their silent masks of horror prove to be more effective than the film’s obligatory jolts. Of course there’s the few physical and technical stretches that go with the genre, but unless you’re an obsessive purist you won’t even notice them as you hold your breath and reach—quietly!—for the earplugs.

I am not the first to say this - it's like 1) a poor man's "Alien" or 2) a lesson of what happens if our astronauts bring back an "Alien." Or 3) it could be used to learn few common words in sign language. Saves a lot of money because we get to meet an "Alien" without spending all that money for the rocket ships, etc. Plus it saves money by not having to hire a real actor like John Hurt just to watch him blow-out.

This is a new favorite of mine, partially because I just stinkin' love John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, but mostly because it is a superbly told story with well-developed characters.

Violence: One character steps on a protruding nail, expresses pain, and pulls her foot off of it with lots of blood. Some uses of guns and there are images of blood and injuries. There's a particularly intense scene when a child is drowning in a grain silo.

I could’ve carried him. He was so heavy, wasn’t he? I can still, I can still feel the weight in my arms. Small, but so heavy.

The movie begins on Day 89 after some humanity decimating event. A family is prowling a store and collecting items, particularly medicine for a sick child. It is obvious they are trying to be very quiet. The youngest child is trying to find a toy and he chooses a little space shuttle. The rest of the family does not want him to bring the space shuttle because it makes noise and is "too loud." As the family leaves the store you notice they are all barefoot and they slowly make their way home. The family communicates in sign language and indeed the oldest child is deaf. It is very clear that they are terrified and surviving the only way they can.
