kind of a deaf Wait Until Dark
7 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wondered if this was a TV movie where it was filmed with spiced-up language and nudity for the European market. It comes off like a Lifetime TV movie pre-Lifetime.

Marlee Matlin, Martin Sheen, D.B. Sweeney, and John C. McGinley star in "Hear No Evil," a 1993 film. After a museum robbery during which a rare coin owned by Alexander the Great is stolen, a journalist (McGinley) is close to a huge story and expose about the robbery; a corrupt police officer (Sheen) believes he has the coin and begins to terrorize him and everyone around him, including the journalist's best friend (Sweeney) and a young deaf woman (Matlin).

This movie quickly descended down the path of a screamathon, with Matlin and Sweeney in all kinds of danger from various people.

The talent involved was on a much higher level than the script, which was derivative with a love story that wasn't particularly believable, since we didn't know the characters well and they knew each other less.

I give Marlee Matlin a huge amount of credit. Though this film isn't an indication of it, she's found her way into mainstream work despite her deafness, even appearing on Dancing with the Stars. A remarkable woman who deserved much better than this material.
