Don't Breathe

Director: Fede Álvarez
Year Released: 2016
Rating: 0.5

A trio of burglars (Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette and Daniel Zovatto) break into the house of a blind Iraq War veteran (Stephen Lang, who's in great shape for being 64) because they heard he's loaded with cash (... and he is), but he's not what you'd call a pushover and proceeds - along with his Cujo-like dog - to hunt them down.  I was assured this was one of the "best horror movies" of the last decade, but I was conflicted about "rooting for" a bunch of scumbags trying to rob a visually disabled person ... and then the movie reveals that he's far from innocent himself, having kidnapped a woman (who killed his daughter) and forcibly inseminated her ... and yet, there's still no justification for storming into someone's abode in the off chance he/she may be committing a serious crime.  Álvarez's camera is very fluid and active, and there's an eager effort to keep it fast-paced, but I was never engaged.
