  • Reviews let me down

    This is very boring. And I usually agree with most reviews. Not sure what’s going on here. P.S. Not scary, at all.
  • So bad

    By Gaspatchosoup
    I don’t want to go into it as to ruin it for people but the ending is so bad that it ruins the whole movie. The movie wasn’t the best and was just okay but that ending. All I’m gonna say and those that have seen it will understand but I’m gonna go back for revenge even we are the ones that started it but it’s his fault.
  • This part had always bugged me.

    Maybe I missed something and have to watch it again. A blind person would have a keen since of smell. Hell, a person who is not blind could smell cigarette smoke on someone. How could they expect to hide with their clothes smelling like cigarettes?
  • Entertaining and very intense

    By Nicholas becerra
    Don't Breathe is satifsying and intense felt real and has a lot of great acting of breathing of course. Watch this in a crowd and you won't breathe for the rest of your life.

  • Great movie except for end

    By Pierucki
    The unpredictable actions of the characters and twists the story took were great. I just did not like the ending.
  • This Was So Awesome

    Every neighborhood has that house with a story. Every kid rides the block by the house. It's only the dumb kids that try to get in. Premise of every Horror but this one did it well.

  • Ridiculous

    By Xavier Sharp
    It might be stupid to call this movie ridiculous... After all, the entire premise of a blind guy hunting not blind people in his house is a ridiculous premise. But every movies establishes a world, and they are tasked with establishing the rules of that world. Film attacks our suspension of disbelief in a way that few mediums can do even halfway. But even as this suspension of disbelief is a burden, it is also a responsibility. And my biggest issue with Don't Breathe is that it squanders that responsibility. The first issue I have is the amount of punishment they say a human body can take. The biggest point on this regard is that the main girl is crawling through a shaft and falls ten feet onto her neck. It's established in the film that these people are just people, though they often takre more punishment than your average person. But it would take someone with immensely dense bones to survive a ten-foot fall directly onto the head. Now, this might seem like a minor point until you realize that it's almost a reverse ex machina. She's feet from safety, but falls on her head in the shaft, is knocked unconscious, and can't escape. To me, this shows that the filmmakers had trouble finding ways to bring their heroine back to Hell. It stands out as an unbelievable event, even in a movie filled with unbelievable events. The result is a movie that is intense for the sake of being intense. The disappointing thing about that particular scene (and another one where a boy falls onto the roof, the through a kitchen skylight and onto the edge of a counter before fending of an attacker) is that it's actually pretty suspenseful in building suspense. The guy is twisted and has more than one reason to kill the intruders. Being able to shoot people while blind is a bit ridiculous, too, but that's much more of a fun ridiculousness that works as another element of the intensity (until the end, when he makes a rather long shot across a room with pinpoint accuracy, all in the name of subverting expectations). At the end of the day, there are worse films, and I like Stephen Lang. But it's certainly not an all-time great film. Internally, it's too maddeningly inconsistent to be that good.

    Great thriller. Important life lesson. Don’t mess with military people.
