Three desperate teens Rocky (Jane Levy), Alex (Dylan Minnette) and Money (Daniel Zovatto) are always in look out for easy money through small break – ins in the neighborhood. Since Alex’s father works for a Security firm, dis -arming the codes is simple and they walk out with the loot easily. When they hear about a blind army veteran Norman Nordstrom (Stephen Lang) who has 300,00K in cash stashed in his house, they don’t hesitate to break in. Things don’t go there way when they break in and thus begin the cat and mouse game between them.
Don’t Breathe is not just a home invasion thriller, it just takes you into a roller coaster ride into the thrill tunnel and just doesn’t come out. With twist and turns at every corner, you practically sit on the edge of your seat the whole time. Stephen Lang who commits to the character gives you chills throughout the film. With all the technical areas in top notch condition, you rarely have a chance to blink in the movie. A particular scene which stands out, where there is forced blackout with just silence as the teenagers are being hunted in the house. Even though predictable at times, it still manages to keep the audience intrigued. The only dropping point for me in story is the sadist back story which makes you cold. Don’t breathe makes you shudder till the end. I give it 6/10
