Provided stupefying amount of pleasure. Tired of quickie jobs that net a few nice watches and some jewelry, Money stumbles on a possible crime that would truly change their lives. Watching these morons stumble into obvious trouble holds little interest. How hard could it be? But when the blind man turns out to be a more ruthless adversary than he seems, the group must find a way to escape his home before they become his latest victims. For long passages, the movie plays out in real time, and Alvarez and his team have a remarkable sense of film geography, established in a beautiful unbroken shot that defines the space for this largely one-setting exercise in terror. I was hoping for a Night of the Living Dead-like ending, but Alvarez completely dropped the ball.
Thank me for holding back from spoiling something delicious. The American horror genre is asphyctic. A new golden age for nausea and heart attacks awaits. Rocky Jane Levy , Alex and Money are three Detroit thieves who get their kicks by breaking into the houses of wealthy people. Stephen Lang and Jane Levy glue it all together with fantastic presence however by the end we feel like it's flipping the power for the sake of it.
Alvarez follows up his surprisingly solid remake of 'The Evil Dead' with this tense, if minimalist plotted, thriller. Alvarez never establishes his leads beyond one scene of clumsy exposition. The cinematography was beautiful and moody and the performances were fine, except maybe Jane Levy, who I felt was too wooden, making her character a little bit unlikable. Jane Levy is dynamite here as is Stephen Lang who with barely any dialogue emits a fair amount of horror. .

Starts out very familiar, almost skipping across the required set-up and gradually builds on a great premise ratcheting up the dread with technical bravado. Creating true crawl-under-the-seat, palm-piercing, cover-your-eyes tension is a rare, undervalued cinematic art. Rocky Levy , her boyfriend Money Daniel Zovatto and wishes-he-was-boyfriend Alex Dylan Minnette rob houses in the wealthy suburbs of Detroit. After Evil Dead's well-made remake, a lot of us felt that Fede Alvarez was a director to watch. Oh for Christ's sake, you know if you like this sort of thing or not. The repeated violence and violation directed at female characters is despicable.
It became almost unbearable at the end, nearly reaching the point of overkill. With Don't Breathe, he definitely became a director I'm very excited to see future projects from. Rocky, a young woman wanting to start a better life for her and her sister, agrees to take part in the robbery of a house owned by a wealthy blind man with her boyfriend Money and their friend Alex. After the film kicks off, there is really no stopping. A few years earlier, his daughter was killed in a car accident and he received a massive cash settlement that Money believes is in a safe in the house. Rocky, Money and Alex will just go in and take it.
Deep in the desolate, rundown heart of Detroit—on one of many blocks with no neighbors and few active utilities—lives a blind man Lang. The film with its theme of greed, deceit and determination reveals the rotting corpse of the American dream quite vividly. The now common Martyrs'-twist has become such a cliché. Don't Breathe was a solid effort and a great addition to the home invasion genre with a little twist. But when the blind man turns out to be a more ruthless adversary than he seems, the group must find a way to escape his home before they become his latest victims.
I admire his knack to generate tension. Well shot and edited and the film overcomes its own contrivances. The metaphorical potential - Detroit as a symbol is a blinded, vengeful, greedy America - has been squandered. Please note as an addendum to this: I am not a well person. Money gets word about a blind veteran who won a major cash settlement following the death of his only child.
Oleh Dunia21 Synopsis Rocky, a young woman wanting to start a better life for her and her sister, agrees to take part in the robbery of a house owned by a wealthy blind man with her boyfriend Money and their friend Alex. You can feel Alvarez rushing to get to the centerpiece when he could have taken a beat or two to give us a reason to care about Money and Alex beyond the former being a tough guy and the latter being the nice one.
