Goofs

When Hugh throws the tire iron to distract the vesp, it's first by his feet for him to pick up, then he throws it far away, but when the vesp flies towards the sound the tire iron can be seen by Hugh's feet. In the following cut the iron is in the distance again. See more »

A Quiet Place Redux clone
10 April 2019 | by bigalexkSee all my reviews

To start things off I saw A Quiet Place and rather enjoyed, It was refreshing and original. Then came a similarly themed Bird Box on Netflix and I thought that was OK and watchable, Now comes The Silence, A Quiet Place wannabe that just doesn't have the oomph or pinache of the original. It had some good moments but were too few and far between. One problem I had with both A Quiet Place and The Silence is the premise that humans are too inept and powerless to keep from becoming prey/food for the creatures. They're attracted to sound so why not set up some humongous speakers and amps in an empty stadium or city, crank it up and get all those suckers to gather there, then have an an F-22 drop a tactical nuke on them and blow them all to kingdom come. Hell, they did that to the aliens in Alien vs Predator:Requiem. They can do that in these movies too.
