What’s New: Will leave you confused whom to root for!
Popcorn Refill: Strictly Interval
Plot: Three teenagers from Detroit, who make a living by breaking into homes, decide to rob an Army veteran’s house, who, reportedly has $300,000 cash in his house and is blind.
What seemed as a piece of cake turns into a nightmare for the three as the blind man outwits them and makes this a cat-mouse game inside his house.
Performances: It’s Stephen Lang’s show. He will send chills down your spine with his restrained and unpredictable act.
There’s a certain kind of unspoken innocence in Dylan Minnette’s character and his wonderful portrayal that will make you root for him more than the other two people in distress.
Jane Levy fits the bill perfectly and doesn’t disappoint.
About The Movie: With the camera, positioned at a high angle, zooming in on The Blind Man with a heart-thumping background score being played simultaneously, ‘Don’t Breathe’ had me hooked on to it right from the first scene!
While the story is nothing one wouldn’t have heard before of- a burglary gone wrong; what makes this one worth every penny is it’s chilling direction by Fede Alvarez coupled along with terrific cinematography (by Pedro Luque), sound effects and background score.
Filled with plenty of twists and turns, this one’s filled with scenes that will leave you startled! Brownie points for letting the audience stay confused as to which side they should root for until the big suspense is revealed.
The quick-paced screenplay is another factor that just doesn’t let you look away from the screen even for a moment.
Overall, ‘Don’t Breathe’ is one hell of a terrifying ride that you just cannot miss!
Combo-On-Offer: Thriller + Drama
Verdict: With that kind of sheer brilliance in terms of execution, it won’t be a surprise to see ‘Don’t Breathe’ become a part of every film-school’s curriculum. With plenty of chills to offer, we give this thriller THUNDEROUS CLAPS.
