A Quiet Place was quite…quiet.
Having been a fan of The Office, I went in to the theater wanting to love this movie (Jim & Pam forever!), But as the film reached its end I couldn’t help but feel as if the quiet was a tad bit too loud…
For starters I will say that I appreciated the representation of a movie that dealt with deafness without having that be it’s center. I also enjoyed seeing John Krasinski and Emily Blunt act along side each other.
But my reservations are found in thinking that the monsters of the film may have been revealed a little too soon, but I guess one could argue that revealing them early was crucial to the story plot, seeing what happens within the first 15 minutes of the film. However the movie seemed to fall “quietly” flat as it progressed.
All in all, there was one moment where I definitely found myself with the biggest lump in my throat while at the same time questioning if I would ever have the boldness required to become a parent. On a final note, the moment that I enjoyed the most came at the last 60 seconds on the film that prompted a serious chuckle.
So it was good, but I wouldn’t say it was great…
My Score: 7.5/10
