October 31, 2018
After a promising opening, the holes in the film's conceit and its general flimsiness become increasingly problematic.

A film about silence shouldn't be this loud.

A Quiet Place may be reactionary, but it only wants to be entertainment, the same way Affleck and Gibson movies do. The goal in this one is effective horror.

A Quiet Place, John Krasinski's first horror movie, is kind of a laughable exercise.

The inanities it requires of its characters are pushing it even for a monster movie.

Don't believe the hype. "A Quiet Place" is a plot-hole filled waste of time. Scary? Not even close. The groupthink virus continues to consume so-called critics.

Yet I couldn't help thinking that if he really loved his family so much he would've pulled out.

And for a film where sound is so important to the lives of the characters, Krasinski doesn't really pay all that much heed to the sound design of his film.

A Quiet Place is so unmoored from anything like subtext or complexity that without a keenly intelligent and efficient script, its seams start to show almost immediately.

A clever monster survival film, but its bland characters didn't engage me even if well-crafted and intelligent.

Recent attempts at "smart horror" didn't offer up reality but they did have an internal logic for the world the films created. A Quiet Place fails this basic test.

Way overrated M. Night Shyamalan-type sci-fi-horror hybrid with serious credibility issues and too many jump in your face moments.

While individual moments might be dramatically potent, the final result is narratively inchoate.

It's merely straight-up horror that drops you right into the situation... For me, that's not enough, not when the characters are as uninspiring as this lot.

"Quiet Place's" faulty logic its undoing.

Krasinski may take it all very seriously, but that doesn't make it serious. I don't think that's the movie's intended takeaway, but as I laughed my way into the aisle after it was over, it was the only one that seemed to stick.

As it stands, A Quiet Place is muted in form but also in its depth compared to progressive and subversive horror stories from various mediums.
