Anyone seen this yet? I was impressed with his performance in 13 Hours and this new horror flick he directed is at 96% on RT. Looks great.

Saw it yesterday and it is a redbox rental.  A decent movie but there is really no reason to see it on the big screen and most people will get bored very quickly.  Fairly well acted but not really very suspenseful and the movie being 90% silent will be a killer for some.

Wow. Respect your opinion, but for me personally, this was the most suspensful, nail biting films, I've seen in years.  Always amazes me how two people can see the same film and have completely opposite perspectives.

Enjoyed it for a movie that had about 10 words spoken the entire time

I was concerned about that, so decided to see a double feature of Blockers and A Quiet Place.  Enjoyed them both quite a bit.  And ate a ton of popcorn.

Still haven't seen this.  Part of this was shot in my home town which is not a big deal for a lot of places but this was a first for our small town.  Pretty sure I may be the only one here that hasn't seen it.

One of the stupidest movies I've ever seen, which is saying something.

Just saw this today. It was suspenseful at times but overall just OK. The creatures reminded me of the monsters in Pitch Black. The CGI was similar and so was the premise (just focused on sound and not sight).

Saw it yesterday.  

If you saw The Descent and Signs, you saw this.  

Not completely bad, but tons of gaping wide plot holes, serious gaps in logic and lots of stupid character decisions to drive a very thin plot. Definitely a Redbox rental.

I had seen the movie with friends.  Overall, it was not bad. I do agree with some of you about story plot gaps or holes. I can see that from the beginning to end. The special effects was ok. But some of you commented about “stupid” characters in there. Sorry to see that but you had no idea how huge the movie is with the young actress - Millicent Simmonds. She is Deaf by herself in real life, same as me. It is quite rare that I see someone do acting in a movie. The other actors, however was a bit static with their signs. I understood they are actors and likely had short lessons to learn enough to do in filming. 

Not easy to master the language, it can take up to 3-4 years.

Unless you have a tremendous sound system at home the film as a must watch in the theater, preferably with nobody else there.
