In the not-too-distant future, strange creatures have landed on Earth hunting humans. The seemingly invulnerable beings are blind, but their hearing is excellent. Whoever makes even the slightest noise is hardly likely to survive. Only a few have survived the attack of the alien beings. Lee (John Krasinski) and Evelyn (Emily Blunt) have built up a silent refuge with their children in the country. They seem to have thought of everything that is necessary to master everyday life without making noises. But at some point they have to realize that not everything can be planned and that their lives are in constant danger despite all the care they take…
A mini-budget, a total of only five actors, two of whom can only be seen for a short time, and hardly any dialogues: "A Quiet Place" is really an exception, especially in times of blockbuster material battles like the MARVEL and DC movies. But not only that: The futuristic horror thriller is also really exciting. Director and leading actor John Krasinski creates a tense atmosphere from the first moments on, which literally pushes you into the cinema seat as a spectator. You yourself are concerned with making as little noise as possible - which should be a matter of course in the cinema, but has unfortunately become an exception.
Sure, the characters don't always behave quite logically, which is indispensable for certain moments of tension in the story. The ending isn't the strongest aspect of the movie either, but fortunately isn't a total disappointment either. There's really nothing more negative to say about the strip - and the weaknesses only minimally cloud the positive overall impression. All in all, Krasinski has succeeded in making a remarkable contribution to the genre which, with a great deal of restraint, can have a great effect. Especially in the moments when there is as little as possible to see and hear, the tension becomes almost unbearable.
Without showing the monsters at all, Krasinski doesn't dare to show them after all. But even if the design is not to everyone's liking, what was visually created here with little financial means is absolutely convincing. With a small but convincing ensemble every second, an atmospheric backdrop and a few well-placed horror moments, "A Quiet Place" can fully meet the expectations that the trailer awakens. If you like to get a little creepy in the cinema and don't need any action and loud effects for that, you shouldn't miss this successful genre pearl. Absolutely worth seeing!
