Don't Breathe

The robbers climb into the house of a lonely old blind man to steal the huge sum, which is rumored to be hidden somewhere inside. It would seem — what could be easier than to make money from home virtually a helpless man. But they are sorely mistaken: the pursued becomes the pursuer. And the secret which he keeps, much worse than conventional retirement savings.

When the urban screens of cinemas leaves the tape in the genre of "Thriller / drama / horror", which is not was preceded by a massive ad campaign, I understand that need to take give me two!

Of course, in this case, it is easy to get "in milk" and go "Three nines" or (don't let b the same!) on "Diggers", but periodically, such a tactic bears fruit quality Ministers as it was example, "You're dead!" (2013).

Fresh in the party "bingo!" I can safely place the movie Fede Alvarez "don't breathe". Good luck to him was accompanied by so much that even the official translation of the name passed bitter Cup of localization, after which the tape is not have become the cranberries a La "last breath" or"Marines vs bugbears."

According to the classification of IMDb, Wikipedia and even IMDB, "don't breathe" is how the horror, although of the device. only the city of Detroit that much like the average worker village, of which slightly less than is any backwoods post-Soviet space. Dying settlement-bankruptcy provides residents with only one option — it as soon as possible to leave. And everyone tries to implement it in its own way.

Vernally the option of accumulating money for ticket — according to the main characters — theft and receipt of stolen goods. And vernally "client" — blind lone veteran of the war in Iraq (Stephen lang's evil Colonel of the kemerovskogo "Avatar") that living in the way in addition to your dog no more who does not communicate. After an easy exploration, our Trinity of characters breaking in house and suddenly myself, but expected the audience (otherwise, why bother to rent a movie?) opens the Pandora's box that holds a bunch of skeletons, like in and figuratively.

Throughout the film I padded furiously to the Director for multiple justification signs — despite a few dozen people in the cinema, in a particularly tense moments we could hear as on the ceiling flies coughing. The slightest creak of the floorboards jarring, but nothing seeing the opinion of the owner of the house, drawn from the screen really makes the beauty in the armchair, crossed, sorry to the unlucky robbers, to pray for the repose of their shower.

In the same time, with each new open in the house door, on the surface the facts or hints that turn the idea of the participants of the unfolding drama, shifting the emphasis of spectator sympathies it on one on other scales.

The plot moves reporting tape — as part of an enclosed space, like and the relationship between the characters — reminiscent of recent "Cloverfield, 10" John Goodman: the same innuendo, those the hints deviation, that the unknown beyond;outside locations. But the best honours film Alvarez in that up to a point true main character of this manifests, allowing up to a certain extent to open up the secondary characters, and then becomes the primary trigger the further course of events.

To a modest 10 million budget did Not "breathe" turned out to be a decent product for the current date having collected in hire about 130 million of non-living presidents of the United States.

I don't really trust the Directors, shooting the movie about vampires and zombies. In the filmography of Fede Alvarez as much as these two — "evil dead: Black book" (2013) and the episode of "From dusk till the dawn" (2014). I want to believe that  "don't breathe" the Director went on the road to reform, vol. C. judging by the end result, it is taken the direction has all the chances to be mastered with the maximum number of spectator sympathies.

7 out of 10

P. S. If, immediately after the opening credits you will come the spoiler, then don't worry — it's just taken out of the context of the episode, not showing in the whole course of events in the minute.

New movie Federico Alvarez "don't breathe", personally I was attracted to in the first place with his idea, well, and then trailer. Not I bet the trailer was good, but I was more interested to see how all managed to fit in one movie. About than film, I hope to not tell you need? Have after the film was released in the rental, after good ratings, reviews, and excellent charges, my interest the film became even more.

So, if you think the authors of the film, having in stock only one good idea for attracting viewers to the cinemas, we decided to get this, you're wrong. After watching the film, you can confident that not so. The film-makers reacted to your creation with a serious responsibility they certainly are not should be ashamed the end result. You can seem the film is not possess originality and attraction and is not so. Though at first glance, the trailer for the most part reveals the entire plot of the film and gives almost no full representation about that will happen in film, yourself the film is able to keep you screen.

"don't breathe" not despite its original simplicity and transparency, all the same holds in the sleeve a couple of interesting and very good points that playing him on the arm. The first thing I want to mention is the atmosphere of the film. Federico Alvarez managed to fill his film with the right atmosphere, for the expense of which, the audience can plunge into the events on the screen. Also have "don't breathe" good speakers. I thought it, will be a big problem and I'll have to watch the boring conversations that are not really have nothing to do with the movie, but not good was. As soon our would-be robbers get into the house, then the film is gaining enough momentum and what is the most interesting didn't reduced until the end. It certainly a very big plus. Every minute for good atmosphere and boring dynamic moments, "don't breathe" accelerates and shows a really interesting movie.

About the actors or their characters much to say not want. As already many users have identified in their reviews, the characters do not want to empathize, in the strength of their initial negative component. Have us in the picture is not any good hero, respectively, and the wicked experience is not want. In rare cases, if there is very good acting, then Yes, they want to empathize, but not this case. Specifically, the heroes of this film, not have managed to make the audience worry about them.

In General whole "don't breathe" was a very strong film with a good atmosphere and dynamic, interesting and new idea, which joy to us is not ruined.

The film bills itself as a horror and Thriller. But by the end of the film turns into trash.

The robbers decided to Rob the sick in a deserted area. The rumors have it is taxed after the death of her daughter.

At the beginning of the film, even like. characters reveal. Good camera work. High-quality sound. And all under the oppressive atmosphere. Of the actors most laid Stephen lang. Gorgeous moments in the dark. Where he's looking for robbers on the sound is just fascinating.

And so the entire first half of the film.

In the second half is full of "horror" in the bad sense of the word. The character of Stephen lang doing a psycho pervert. The feeling that this is done on purpose that would contrast, people are more sympathetic to the robbers and not the old veteran. Explicit substitution of values. And so cannot remember the ill-fated pipette...

With the characters not everything went smoothly who it opened, and someone no. In particular girl rocky from a dysfunctional family with little sister DeeDee dreams of the surf is revealed well. The second team member is the son of police Alex, who for some reason are clearly not love of the father, so not revealed its motivation for the crimes. Third member of the team, the stereotypical thug. Their actions at the time of the robbery in General, with difficult logic, but it's a horror so that's probably a cliche.

The picture of the film is good. The sound is also high quality. On my opinion to the creators would be worth continue to make the film is a Thriller/drama with less emphasis on horror. And then the film would obviously came out better.

In the end we get a mediocre movie. Not boring, sometimes interesting but not a masterpiece. If you ready to view on some hard things, please see. The rest is not worth my time.
