Trivia

  • Has similar elements to A Quiet Place (2018) which stars Stanley Tucci's sister-in-law Emily Blunt. However, Tim Lebbon's book, from which this film is based, was published in August 2015 and the film began shooting in September 2017, both before A Quiet Place (2018) was released.

Goofs

  • The whole premise of the story makes no sense. It is highly probable that the vesps would eliminate all creatures on the earth since only humans would know that they have to be completely silent, so why didn't the people just set up some fishing nets with sirens in the middle to capture the creatures?

A dull retread of ideas explored more interestingly in other films and TV shows. Even the always-welcome Stanley Tucci can’t add any flair to a movie that feels so much like a relative of John Krasinski’s 2018 smash hit that one has to wonder if Netflix didn’t try to convince the producers to rename it “A Quiet Paradox.”

This is the most insidious type of knockoff: the one that sincerely expects you to believe that it’s the real thing. Leave it to Netflix to take the fun out of incompetence.
