This offbeat revenge-thriller offers suspense and mystery that are a cut above anything currently being churned out by the studios.
Despite its uneven tone, the film is compelling and, perhaps more importantly, relevant.
Cheesy enough to be viewed as a parody except nearly everyone involved seems to take it at least somewhat seriously.
Represents two hours well-spent, especially for anyone with a fascination for complex characters.
The narrative is choppy, the tension is less pervasive than it should be, and there’s no ending.
The movie hits all the milestones although it perhaps tries too hard to be uplifting and inspirational.
Not the best of its kind but aims to say something rather than merely satisfy by copious bloodletting.
In "Silence", moments of brilliance punctuate an otherwise sluggish, self-indulgent narrative.
A stunning work of artistry and emotional heft that's difficult to shake and impossible to forget.
