The performances transcend the film's tropes, grounding it in characters that feel more complete than this subgenre often produces.
This is one of the few movies I've ever seen where the whole audience broke into spontaneous, loud applause a third of the way in.
what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.
The joyful confection is coated in a sparkly gloss, bright enough to gleam from the darkest, most cynical corners.
Too many plot holes, to many stupid mistakes that any normal person in this situation would avoid. Could of been so much better but that's Hollywood these days. Just follow the same basic formula. Nothing new or particularly interesting here.
I think this film has destroyed the last bit of faith I had in humanity. Not because any shred of logic in the film is completely dispensed with, but because -- according to the ratings on this site -- it is regarded as one of the greatest horrors of all time. Is this a joke? Even B-movies generally contain some semblance of a story or some attempt at character development. And as for the plot holes... this thing is holier than Zeus himself!Seriously, I don't know how to illustrate this without giving away spoilers, but the basic idea is that you have these (presumably alien) creatures that are so sensitive to sound they can hear you drop an item inside your house when they are over a mile away. (Yet they don't use echolocation. Hmm...) Even though they're blind, they've wiped out the world. (Because apparently no one ever thought about creating diversions or setting traps.)Good time to get pregnant and have a baby, yes? (Don't worry though, if you decide to give birth *three feet away from one* it probably won't hear you... or the baby!)I could write a VERY long list of stupid inconsistencies, flat out deranged decisions, and plot holes riddled throughout the movie. But my issue isn't really with the movie. There are terrible films (like this) out there and I normally just shrug it off and get on with my day. It's just the fact that this is currently rated higher than many classic films, and it leaves me wondering how our species is going to survive much longer with this level of complete asininity.Just a tip for the logically challenged: Just because the filmmakers are able to mute the soundtrack whenever they please, it doesn't mean that humans can realistically run (yes, run!) across wooden boards, over crunchy leaves, through thick fields and foliage, climb metal ladders, etc, without making even the slightest sound.
What a piece of garbage. It was a dangerous, difficult idea to make it fun and good."Hush" made some parts that had the effect of not being able to speak well. Watch that.This is crap. A family story underdeveloped. The Sci-Fi is not explained. No twists. "Scary scenes" that aren't scary nor originals in any sense. Dumb conclusion. Paper thin characters. Honestly. There is no reason for this movie to exist.
How and where did these creatures came from? Still an interesting film though.
