Don't Breathe

Don't Breathe ★★

Possibly the dullest execution imaginable for this concept.

Like it really didn't matter that this dude was blind, he could've had some minor cataract issues and it would've been the same goose chase. Ending proves that Alvarez worked on dozens of drafts to strive for narrative economy, but blithely overlooks logic (hold up, if this blind man doesn't want the cops to ever search his home, why does he have a security system that will allow the cops to show up to his home) and thematics (that coffee shop newscast is the product of an entirely different, better movie). Alvarez is not good. An all-time great trailer got a snoozer of a house invasion movie to follow it.
