Great acting, cool experience watching.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. And yeah, as some people have said, there are plot holes. But the story feels very real... it doesn't have a lot of "bling" on it... everything is very simple. Everyday actions become tense, and that's a good part of the movie's charm.

You get easily attached to the characters, and you find yourself wondering what you might do in that situation. It'll make you want to be quiet. It'll make you cover your mouth and sob into your hands (if you're a big ol' crybaby like me) just to keep from making a sound.

If it's a concern for you, the movie is very clean. Not much for dialogue, so no swearing. No sexual content. I was worried it would have cheesy, unnecessary gore; It does not have that. The blood is pretty mild in my opinion... tasteful seems like a weird word to use for blood. But, uh, tasteful.

The star of the show was absolutely the acting. I realize even people giving poor reviews noted how amazing the acting is. There is sign language for dialogue, but even that is extremely minimal compared to most movies. It's truly a different experience to watch a movie that you actually have to WATCH, or you won't know what's going on. All the emotion is carried by the acting, music, and camera work. Phenomenal use of what sounds they do include, in my opinion.

Overall, it's a very cool movie, and not like anything I've seen before. I enjoyed it.

As overrated as it gets

Do yourself a favor and read all the other 1-star reviews. Not only is it amusing, but they've pretty much got the plot holes covered. And there are a lot. I guess what bothered me most were the all CGI aliens. I will never understand the appeal of a CGI creature feature. There is no tension. They're reacting to NOTHING. Also, who has a baby in this environment? And they happen to have the QUIETEST BABY EVER. A shotgun blast is fired in the same room, and, not a peep. The whole hearing-aid-is-the-creature's-Achilles-heel was done in 2009, in Feast III. Only that movie thrived on, and had fun with, absurdity. I'm always weary of PG-13 horror, but this was so well-received. $9 down the tubes.

It's no surprise that Michael Bay was involved with this travesty. This guy has a sordid history with horror movies and remakes. The main problem with most modern horror (and by modern, I'm talking the last decade), is that there is zero attention paid to detail. And this is why you get so many glaring plot holes. All these filmmakers know are tropes. So just string a bunch of them together, and you've got yourself a movie (like A Quiet Place), with no effort made for the world make sense.

Everyone was doing their best to remain completely silent during the film
Verified purchase
This movie was so gripping. I was tense and on the edge of my seat the entire time. The use of sound was really interesting, and this movie had an effect on the entire audience. Everyone was doing their best to remain completely silent during the film. People were even unlikely to eat their food, so as to avoid disturbing the silence. That effect alone was enough to make this movie worth it. Add in the excellent acting performances and you've got yourself a great movie.

Stupid premise, absurd movie.
Verified purchase
I can't see why this movie is getting all the praise. It's just an updated (and, yes, petter produced) version of DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS", except the plot has even more holes and requires not just a suspension of disbelief, but a complete, slack-jawed acceptance of absurdity after absurdity.

After ten minutes, I was rooting for the aliens.

A+ Sci-Fi Horror movie
Verified purchase
This movie was so well done! As a big fan of horror movies, it is hard to come across a good one nowadays. A Quiet Place is very original and full of suspense. I saw it in theaters and have never had an experience quite like that. This movie was fantastic all around, great plot, cast, acting, directing, shooting, etc.

Exceeds expectations. Doesn't bore and keeps you intrigued. Thumbs up.

Exceeds expectations. Not going to lie, went into this thinking it had a somewhat lame concept but the reviews looked good so i gave it a shot. Overall without spoiling anything i enjoyed this movie. Never a dull moment and had some good acting and the story progressed well throughout. I would definitely recommend this. This was one of those movies that matched the reviews online which i read. Good stuff.

Finally, something I haven't seen before.

Finally, something I haven't seen before. Emily and John make the perfect couple (on and off the screen). The music flows in and out of the movie effortlessly, you can barely tell that no one is talking.
