      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Silence has nothing new to say with a derivative premise and placid pacing -- even a wasted Stanley Tucci is unable to elevate the stodgy material a decibel above dreadful.

      GeekChic 3 Knock off version of a Quiet Place, nothing happens, also they used a hearing actor to play a deaf character, so there's that... Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review Hollibird I love Tucci and Shipka. This was okay. We needed more info on the crazy man, I would like to see more carnage when they finally stopped them. I wish they would have had the story where the things were eradicated rather than "I wonder if they adapt to the cold in the future?". They should have let me write it. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/02/24 Full Review Margaret C A quiet place knockoff with the fakest lightning I've ever seen. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/01/24 Full Review Daniel G One of many dystopian movie, this one with Tucci and Miranda as heavy weight leads, that could have been a bit more careful not to leave so many plot-holes (why did the "hushed" need a "fertile"? how did those beings survive "millions" of years - eating what?). This seemed like a really good pilot for a series and ended up being a good pasttime. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/24 Full Review Philip K Imagine A Quiet Place but painfully awful. Copied a popular premise and butchered it with stupid decisions and a laughable cult Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/24 Full Review Max W While certain scenes exhibit commendable design, likely attributed to the source material, the film as a whole falls slightly short in overall execution and atmospheric tension compared to its counterpart in the same genre, A Quiet Place.

      Brad Newsome Sydney Morning Herald The estimable trio at the heart of the cast goes close to carrying the whole thing over the line, but it never feels as taut or kinetic as it needs to be. May 3, 2019 Full Review Scott Tobias New York Times There may come a time when the Netflix algorithm grows sophisticated enough to cut out the middle man and write its own scripts, but until that day arrives, niche-targeted dreck like "The Silence" will have to suffice. Apr 12, 2019 Full Review Kristy Puchko IGN Movies Imagine A Quiet Place, but deeply mediocre. Apr 11, 2019 Full Review Jordy Sirkin Jordy Reviews It The Silence is a painful attempt to remake A Quiet Place, which came out the year before. Though this is based on a 2015 novel of the same name, the story has already been done perfectly, leaving little to be desired in this straight-to-streaming flick. Jan 2, 2021 Full Review Emma Wolfe SpookyAstronauts I thought the acting was quite good but... you saw everything and I felt like there was no mystery left in the film. Rated: 5/10 Dec 16, 2020 Full Review Prahlad Srihari Firstpost Somewhere deep beneath an underground cavern, something shockingly dreadful is accidentally unleashed upon the world: It's a near-unwatchable disaster of a Netflix horror movie called The Silence.
