Solid movie
23 January 2003 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Silence is a very good thriller. I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised by all aspects of this film. It looks great and benefits from many strong actors. I would recommend this to all my friends.

This film has a great cast. Good performances by Kristy Swanson (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Vincent Spano, Tony Todd, and Bruce Boxleitner; one of my favorite TV actors, from Scarecrow and Mrs. King. Even the little girl, DeVeigh Chase, is very believable. Pretty good suspense. Check this one out.
