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

  • 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.
  • Christian Torture Porn

    Another overly violent movie made for Christian's. Like many Christian movies about faith set in the past, endearing excruciating torture is a sign of how much they love their sky god. Christianity and violence go hand in hand.
  • Deceived by the Trailer

    Thought we were in for an action packed "rescue the missing guy" movie. Nope, nope, nope. Long, boring, disappointing, and dismal story. Won't get that 2hr and 41 minutes back. Saw the trailer and my husband and I both agreed it "Looks pretty exciting, a bit gory for us but..." Nope, we've seen more gore than that, in much better films. Can't understand the high rating of this depressing, slow, and uninteresting film.
  • WASTED 2:42hours!!!

    Worst movie of ALL time!!! What a waist of 2:42hrs.
  • horrible plotless movie

    just a Martin finds Jesus movie
  • Hard to Watch

    North Fork Viewer
    Yet another director fascinated with Japanese torture methods. Some new ones here but gosh enough already.
  • Catholic porn

    One of Scorsese's worst. I was raised Catholic, and this kind of old-fashioned missionary martyr porn was part of what drove me away from the church. It could have been a study of cultures clashing, of the dangers of colonialism, but it's just a reactionary Mel Gibson-style torture-fest. Plus it's excruciatingly ponderous, tedious, repetitive, dull, and *at least* an hour too long at nearly three long, long hours. I'm giving it two stars because the cinematography is beautiful, at least in the early scenes, but bah.
