Critic Reviews for The Silence
Given that underwhelming police thriller The Silence is technically a made-for-TV movie, it might not be counted against helmer Cate Shortland as yet another example of the dreaded disappointing sophomore follow-up.
Stylish, sexy and deeply emotionally resonant.
Eloquent direction lifts this beyond a genre whodunit.
...an egregiously slow-paced piece of work that works neither as a character study nor as a police procedural...
Nice, but nothing remarkable.
Audience Reviews for The Silence
It's not a bad film, but it is less than enthralling. I found the plot to be an interesting concept, but the execution of the story lacked spark and it was not easy staying focused on the film. It's well enough made, just bland. In RT twice.
