A Quiet Place Film Review
A film that promotes going to the cinema
The film centres around the Abbott family trying to survive a world in which making a sound can kill you. After losing their son to the monsters who hunt by hearing sounds, the Abbott family carry on surviving until Evelyn Abbot (Emily Blunt) falls pregnant causing all kinds of problems. The father of the family Lee Abbot (John Krasinski) focuses on helping his family survive, training his younger son Marcus Abbot (Noah Jupe) to take his place if he was to die. Regan Abbot (Millicent Simmons) the daughter of Lee and Evelyn blames herself for the death of her younger brother after giving him the toy that made that fatal sound attracting the monsters. However, the family have to come together to try safely deliver a child in this chaotic silent world.
A great film in which needs to be appreciated in a cinema full of people all eagerly anticipating every little sound. I don’t think the film would have the same effect if your watching in your house with your phone on and lights. You need to be focused on the film to get the true effect. The sound of silence is the key throughout the whole film, as the silence adds to the intensity along with the actual monsters. It’s brilliantly acted by all involved director John Krasinski putting in a superb performance. His death for his children being a standout moment in the film. A Quiet Place is a great film with a unique concept using silence to full effect.
