Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (a.k.a. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg Cable.
Two parents do what it takes to keep their children safe in a world full of creatures hunting every sound they can hear. Not a sound can be heard from the family hiding in silence, but all it takes is one noise and everything can go wrong.Written by
The bridge featured in the movie is the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail Bridge in New Paltz, New York. See more »
When Evelyn wakes up in the safe room with water flooding it and a creature in the opposite corner, not only is the lid inexplicably removed from the infant's safe box, but the oxygen mask is also no longer in use. If she was asleep & Lee left them there, the rising water would not have removed the lid and neither would the creature. Unless we are supposed to believe that since Lee felt it was safe enough to talk in this room and not be heard by the creatures that it was worth the risk of tempting fate by letting the baby openly cry, too, and not bother with the safe box they had assembled to guarantee it's safety after all?

A Quiet Place is a flawed film with many illogical decisions but non major enough to be considered brainless.
The films main flaw are its own creatures (who kill whatever makes a sound) and the lack of explanation behind them makes the concept fell rushed. The film fails to clarify what those creatures can or cannot hear and how they move or function.
Another flaw is the family's lifestyle. We know they've become skilled at being quiet and we know they live on a farm in the countryside. Inside their house is a basement which muffles the sound yet the family doesn't use until ¾ in the movie. Other illogical flaws beg a few questions; Why doesn't the family have a house near the river? Who don't they apply soft fabric to their shoes instead of using sand to muffle sound?
Accept those and a few other issues A Quiet Place does a fantastic job making use of its visual and sound effects as well as having minimal dialogue. All the actors, especially Emily Blunt give realistic enough performances.
Ultimately A Quiet Place fails at being scary and is quite illogical at times but its tense enough to be entertaining and its originality are a nice change of pace for horror/thrillers good enough for a second viewing.
Final Grade: 7/10
