... In an extremely long line of them. Hey, Mia from Evil Dead is back! (Don't Breathe is from the makers of the Evil Dead reboot, literally the only reboot I've seen that does the original justice). So, this is stylishly made, has that great eerie Detroit setting, is well-acted, intense, interesting score, and has some good action. It's also got a whole bunch of implausibilities. I don't want to give away how things unfold, but there are plenty of instances of "How is this person still alive?," as well as complete lapses of logic. I thought the worst offender came at the end: The Blind Man knows the code to all his safes, but not the one to his home security system?! And he was RIGHT THERE. I found this baffling, and very convenient to how things play out. In other words, lazy modern horror writing. One quote on the box says "Best American horror film in twenty years!" Has this guy been living in a cave? It's a ludicrous statement. Also, very telling -- Best "American" -- yeah, critics fawn all over the foreign stuff.
Anyway, don't get me wrong, this is a strong home invasion entry, just not without its share of nagging plot holes. It was good enough that I'm watching Part 2 tonight, to see what the Blind Man is up to nowadays.
