Don't Breathe

Don't Breathe ★★★½

There are some great shots, it's well directed and acted. The old home invasion trope is flipped up to create something new and the use of a blind guy really works to create heightened tension in certain scenes.

However, after all the hype I was expecting something on par with Green Room or It Follows and sadly it didn't quite live up to either film. As nice as the opening shot was, I felt like it wasn't necessary and maybe gave too much away. I did still enjoy it and I'm looking forward to whatever Fede Alvarez does next.
