A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place ★★

When humans become as vulnerable as bugs it really brings up questions about what our species is. Reproduction and survival become the focuses of existence, rather than the usual pleasures.

This was an angle I expected and wanted A Quiet Place to take - explaining why, in such a miserable world, a baby is in the question and why people don't just give up. But instead, tropes, tired and untruthful family dynamics, cheap scares. The concept of quietness becomes a silly gimmick, and dialogue is replaced with ridiculous musical cues for the bland actions on screen.

I'm afraid to say it's exactly what I was expecting.
