***Spoilers Ahead, Maybe*** Don't Breathe wasn't as good as I hoped or thought it would be.The best thing thing about this movie was the trailer.When I saw it, I thought that movie looks awesome.It's what made me want to see Don't Breathe in the 1st place.After watching the movie I was disappointed.It was nothing spectacular & it wasn't something I'd add to my GARBAGE list either but I felt like I was watching it just to be watching it.Right from the start when the 3 teens were breaking into the 1st house they broke into & Money was masturbating onto the floor, I thought how stupid is that? What was the point? Was this suppose to show he was the idiot of the group? Is he that stupid that he doesn't know by doing that, he's leaving his DNA at the scene which could be traced back to him & …

I don’t know what to say about this one. The premise was good. It gave a fresh take on the home invasion suspense thriller but just didn’t deliver as anticipated. The acting was fine and Stephen Lang plays the role of the blind man well but the character depth and development was poor in my opinion.

'Don't Breathe' is the followup from the team behind the 2013 'Evil Dead' remake. The creative minds at work have surpassed their previous efforts and delivered the single best thriller of the year! We jump right into a simple streamlined story of three home invading youths who make a habit of looting houses. Their next target is meant to be their last, as the home owner has over 3K in bills stashed in his place. Oh, and he's also a blind recluse. The setup is quick and informative. We aren't meant to completely side with these criminals, but we are given enough reason to warm up to their characters when the situation goes sour. And that happens almost immediately. Not only is our blind man hardened and apt to violence, but he's also hiding a secret within the depths of his …

DON'T BREATHE is an effective and suspenseful thriller that utilizes its high concept premise to its full potential. though it might become too disturbing and unsettling for some viewers. Stephen Lang delivers a frightening performance as a blind man whose house is broke into by three teens. Little do they know that it's freaking Stephen Lang and he turns the tables despite being blind thanks to his heightened senses and fearsome military skills.
It continues the trend for the summer of 2016 where smaller B-movies succeed while high profile blockbusters fail. Why? Because this film and others like it such as The Shallows or Lights Out or 10 Cloverfield Lane remember the 3 basics of filmmaking: good writing, acting, and directing.
The film is noteworthy in that there is actually …
