A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place ★★★

Blunt is predictably great, and the sound design is fantastic. But other than that, it's sadly a bit of a one trick pony and that pony's trick isn't that great. It borrows heavily, though not deliberately knowingly, from other better works and as such it never really delivers on the teased at tension. And given there's a few too many issues with the narrative's internal logic, it never really takes off.
