Nice butOh yeah and this is a Raimi-Tapert production. It’s exactly what you expect from people who have been making entertaining stuff for a long time, even if it can take awhile to feel sympathetic for the people breaking in to a house to be the good guys once folks start defending themselves My only critique for someone who lives here: the outside shots in detroit, you don’t have to go that far out into macomb county or even washtenaw to get some way scarier middle of nowhere vibes where people have to go through the creepiest rolling fogs in the morning… police also don’t come out..Score: 4/5
RidiculousIt might be stupid to call this movie ridiculous... After all, the entire premise of a blind guy hunting not blind people in his house is a ridiculous premise. But every movies establishes a world, and they are tasked with establishing the rules of that world. Film attacks our suspension of disbelief in a way that few mediums can do even halfway. But even as this suspension of disbelief is a burden, it is also a responsibility. And my biggest issue with Don't Breathe is that it squanders that responsibility. The first issue I have is the amount of punishment they say a human body can take. The biggest point on this regard is that the main girl is crawling through a shaft and falls ten feet onto her neck. It's established in the film that these people are just people, though they often takre more punishment than your average person. But it would take someone with immensely dense bones to survive a ten-foot fall directly onto the head. Now, this might seem like a minor point until you realize that it's almost a reverse ex machina. She's feet from safety, but falls on her head in the shaft, is knocked unconscious, and can't escape. To me, this shows that the filmmakers had trouble finding ways to bring their heroine back to Hell. It stands out as an unbelievable event, even in a movie filled with unbelievable events. The result is a movie that is intense for the sake of being intense. The disappointing thing about that particular scene (and another one where a boy falls onto the roof, the through a kitchen skylight and onto the edge of a counter before fending of an attacker) is that it's actually pretty suspenseful in building suspense. The guy is twisted and has more than one reason to kill the intruders. Being able to shoot people while blind is a bit ridiculous, too, but that's much more of a fun ridiculousness that works as another element of the intensity (until the end, when he makes a rather long shot across a room with pinpoint accuracy, all in the name of subverting expectations). At the end of the day, there are worse films, and I like Stephen Lang. But it's certainly not an all-time great film. Internally, it's too maddeningly inconsistent to be that good..Score: 3/5
This part had always bugged me.Maybe I missed something and have to watch it again. A blind person would have a keen since of smell. Hell, a person who is not blind could smell cigarette smoke on someone. How could they expect to hide with their clothes smelling like cigarettes?.Score: 4/5
Anti-theft movie?The moral of this story is don’t rob someone’s (or anyone )house because they maybe able to fight back! It’s funny to me that the “horror” part isn’t inflicted by a ghost( or some other supernatural entity) or someone who get their kicks torturing (innocent) people, but by a person defending their house/stuff…despite the setup, I was complete sympathetic to the homeowner/blindman and was in fact routing for him most of the movie. It’s a good movie, well shot, with lots of twists and turns. I certainly can’t wait to see the sequel where he has to defend a daughter figure (according to the previews)..Score: 5/5

Dumb criminals make for a wicked freaky movie!I love all types of horror movies- ghosts, goblins, monsters, jump out of your seat silly, thrillers, suspense, psychological mayhem...ANY kind. My husband however only likes the "true to life" horror movies (ones that could feasibly take place in the real world). This movie my friends was one of those. It was extremely terrifying because technically it could happen- no ghosts and bogeymen. The only thing I didn't really love about it was the plot (though it could happen in real life) it was a bit far fetched at one point. Other than that- totally worth watching. You will for sure lock all your doors and windows after. Rent it now!!.Score: 5/5
Entertaining film. Awful human beings.This movie is suspenseful. However, the terrible, terrible characters in this movie left me not really caring about what happens to them. In fact, since criminals deserve every evil the universe can inflict on them, I was literally hoping they'd die...painfully..Score: 3/5

An Unnerving Thrilling FilmDon't Breathe will blow you away. Once it starts, it never lets go of its relentless pace and suspense. It's terror stems from 3 robbers who break into the house of the seemingly harmless blind man, who turns out to be just the opposite of a helpless victim. The whole film takes place basically inside the house. It's a more dark and disturbing panic room in a smaller house, a claustrophobic Nail biter with twists you'll never see coming. Watch it. Buy it. Props to Jane Levy. Her performance is terrific..Score: 5/5
