Disappointing
13 January 2011 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

I imagine that for people like Marlee Matlin, they simply don't get a lot of different roles to choose from, and have to pick the very little they are given, even if the work they are offered simply isn't good. "Hear No Evil", as you might have guessed, isn't a good movie. In fairness to Matlin, she does give it all for this role, but this role - as well as the rest of the script - is not very well written. In the first part of the movie, we learn next to nothing about her character, so it's hard to sympathize with her character when the bad things start happening to her. It feels at times, not just in the first part of the movie, that this movie is missing a lot of scenes that would explain a lot of things, even though the movie runs 97 minutes. What we end up with is a movie that seems to have an insulting attitude towards the audience's intelligence. The movie is not thrilling, nor does it give any interesting insight towards people who are deaf. A big disappointment.
