Don’t Breathe Review (2016)


Don’t breathe is fun roller-coaster ride. When you think the ride is over, it keep going. I really like that. This isn’t really a horror movie, but I really recommend this movie.

The Story

The story is pretty simple.  Group of thieves broken into blind veteran man’s house to take his money.  But this blind man has some secrets. Now these thieves are fighting to survive.

The Review (Spoiler Free)

The movie starts up very quickly.  It doesn’t mess around.  Pretty soon these robbers are in the old blind man’s house and the suspense begins and it doesn’t stop.

So who’s the villain in the movie?  Obvious the old blind man isn’t a villain because he is getting robbed.  The movie is setup where there is no real villains and hero. Everyone in the movie is bit of villains. Everyone is the movie is bit of victims.

We do see little bit of backstory behind one of the movie (Jane Levy).  But that is all.  We don’t know too much of the old blind man and rest of the thieves.

Also it has pretty cool ending.  It does have typical to-be-continue type of horror ending, but I am not complain.

Acting and Directing

All the actors are top notch, special the old blind man played by Stephen Lang.  Rest of the cast include Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette, Daniel Zovatto, Emma Bercovici, Katia Bokor, Sergej Onopko, and Olivia Gillies.

Don’t Breathe is written and directed by Fede Alvarez.  He is responsible for directing horror mega film, The Evil Dead. Fede Alvarez teamed up with Rodo Sayagues who is also credit for writing The Evil Dead to produce Don’t Breathe.  With these two successful films, Fede Alvarez is working on few TV projects.

In the Nutshell

I highly recommend this movie. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.
