A Quiet Place is directed by John Krasinski and it stars himself and his wife, Emily Blunt, also stars Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe.
A family is forced to live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound.
With 90 minutes running time, John Krasinski managed to direct a tight and very straight forward horror film which is pretty good. This movie had very strong performances from our four characters and kudos to John Krasinski for his direction as well.
One of the stand out is Millicent Simmonds, who’s deaf in real life, she plays one of the children and she is great. Seeing as she doesn’t have any lines her actions and emotions are conveyed through her facial expressions and she does it incredibly.
The creatures were terrifying and they blend seamlessly with the environment, the visual effects on them were impressive and no doubt would leave an impression to the viewers.
The major issues are the convenient plot points, there are a few of them and at times they follow the same beats. There are also character decisions that are questionable and at times there are things that could’ve dealt with in smarter ways.
Overall A Quiet Place is a very good horror/thriller movie, the actors were great and again John Krasinski deserves every credit he gets for acting and directing and even some screenplay writing. Emily Blunt is very good and even the kids were good too. The scares can be a bit predictable but most of the time they deliver. If you’re a fan of creature feature horror movies highly recommend to check A Quiet Place.
