Silence Description

Legendary director Martin Scorsese’s Silence tells the story of two Christian missionaries (Adam Driver and Oscar® nominee Andrew Garfield) who travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Academy Award® nominee Liam Neeson) at a time when Christianity was outlawed. When they are captured and imprisoned, both men are plunged into an odyssey that will test their faith, challenge their sanity and, perhaps, risk their very lives.

Drama about a deaf girl who witnesses the audacious murder of a policewoman, and is reluctantly propelled further into a loud and frightening world.

Silence Movie Reviews

  • Amazing movie

    I loved this movie from start to finish. I found no flaws. I've always loved Martin's films. He's a frickin' genius!
  • Good stuff, works very very well as an adaptation

    If you like deep, heavy movies, definitely watch this. It's not for the faint of heart but it's extremely well done and worth watching as an exploration of sacrifice, love, betrayal, and what people choose when pushed to the breaking point. With their entire beliefs challenged, and people they love suffering for them, pointlessly, what is the right thing to do under persecution? The ambiguous result is definitely interesting, and I think the movie doesn't try to force you into picking a side. Watch and make your own decision.
  • Insightful

    Gritty realism portraying 1.0 humans.
  • painfully boring

    ..... a perfect example of why religion is fantastically .... crazy
  • Slow and plodding

    An uninteresting portrayal with flat characters. Slow developing plot. I didn't care for the characters or the movie subject matter.
  • Not so much...

    Didn't care for the movie much. Too long and pretty boring. Also, a little cheesy at the end, in my opinon.
  • Depressing, long, boring, way more Christian than expected.

    Really was disappointed by Silence. Saw it in theaters, and didn't realize how depressing watching 2+ hours of someone being tortured really can be before Silence. A lot of Christian "propaganda" in there too. Overall very disappointing movie.
  • Not good!

    Did not enjoy this film -- at all. Pretty much this could of been one of those classic silent films and Not miss a thing........!
  • Boring

    I was hoping for a great film. I actually dozed off in part of it, Very slow, long and a bore,
  • Slooooooowwww

    Over George
    The longest slowest most boring and poorly acted movie I have ever seen in my life. I now see why it took nearly 30 years to get funding for this 'passion project' of Scorsese's. It's a story that will resonate with very few people and even less likely when they have to sit through a very slow 2.5 hours to get there.
