Bringing you honest reviews of recent releases
Right, I really don’t know what’s going on with cinema at the moment – but holy SHIT. This was absolutely dire, and almost painful to sit through.
Don’t Breathe (2016) was fantastic; three delinquents break into the home of a blind man and spend the entire movie trying to creep around him without making a single sound. It was intense, and highly original.
Don’t Breathe 2 however, takes the blind man and throws in a load of domestic crap, family relationship strife, and possibly one of the most pointless plots I have ever seen in a film. All this tediously played out on a meek, dreary set.
Honestly, the only thing I found even remotely entertaining is during one of the final scenes where Norman (the blind dude) is having a ‘I’m a broken man’ meltdown and his voice suddenly makes him sound like a Dalek from Doctor Who. The pauses between words and scratchy delivery was so uncanny, I expected one of the younger viewers in the auditorium to yell, “EXTERMINATE!”
Yes – that was seriously the only thing I took away from this film.
