Wick's Review

Created May 18, 2018 06:17PM PST • Edited May 18, 2018 06:24PM PST

  1. Quality
  2. Really Great 4.5

    A Quiet Place is a primo horror movie for non-horror fans, such as John Krasinski & Emily Blunt. He wrote, directed and starred in this 90-minute masterpiece. She “only” stars in it, meaning he directed his real-life wife in the movie’s cruel crucible of silence. Interesting choice for a couple of non-horror fans!

    Their movie is brilliantly economical and outstandingly conceived. Its cast mostly consists of Blunt, Krasinski and three kids. Yet Krasinski employs 18 stuntmen, or three per cast member. Impressive.

    The now-famous premise is that predatory aliens hunt humans based on sound. So staying quiet is essential to staying alive. Even though A Quiet Place’s bio-reality is wackadoodle, its circoreality is very human in a traditional way. Husband and wife hold their roles as father and mother preeminent in protecting their kids, which is something elemental that rings very true and is part of why the movie is outstandingly conceived.

    Horror is my least favorite genre, but A Quiet Place is one of my favorite movies in terms of emotional involvement and sheer cinematic appreciation. In short, it deserves its considerable buzz and acclaim.

  3. Perfect 5.0

    Emily Blunt can play anything. Playing a contemporary mother opposite her real-life parenting partner isn’t a reach, even if the horror elements are more than a bit extreme. Terrific performance!

    John Krasinski plays serious as a crutch, a very good look for an actor who got his start in comedy. His stout father is strong and tender, and quiet, oh so quiet.

    Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe & little Cade Woodward play their three children evocatively well.

    Leon Russom cameos briefly.
