Hidden is post-apocalyptic movie about a family who is trying to survive in the bunker.
The Review (Spoiler Free)
This is hidden gem that everyone should watch. This another futuristic apocalyptic movie told from little girls perspective played by Emily Alyn Lind. This movie has similar tone with 10 Cloverfield Lane movie. We are told by the dad and mom that there is monsters in the ground who are called “The Breather” who are trying to kill them and they have to hide in the bunker. The identity of “The Breather” kept as mystery throughout the movie.
The movie also sets up for the big surprise ending, and the ending is very satisfying. It has bit of Twilight Zone feel to the movie.
So who are these Breathers? Why are they trying to kill them? I like the surprise ending and it is not what you think it is.
Hidden is directed by Matt and Ross Duffer of The Duffer Brothers. You might recognized The Duffer Brothers from very popular TV show called The Stranger Things. The Duffer Brother is creator and director of The Stranger Things.
Spoiler Ending (Spoiler Warning!!)
So who are the Breather? The surprise ending reveals that the Breathers are the US Army. We find out that there was virus outbreak that cause some of them turned into some kind of creature with super strength. Interesting part is that these creatures can control themselves when they can turn into the creature. We got hinted about this throughout the movie where the mom teaching the daughter to control her feeling.
At the end, the soldiers finds them and they are force to run. The dad died early on trying to save the mom and the daughter. At the end, mom and daughter survives by turning into creates to fight off the soldiers. We find that there are others who are hiding from the soldiers. They joined them.
I highly recommend this movie. I give 5 out of 5 stars.
