  • “Don’t Say A Word” was a pleasant surprise for me. I got a strong thriller with great performances and a lot of thrilling scenes, enough to keep my attention the whole film. That’s pretty much all I expect from a good thriller. The storyline was very good and the character development was great too. I loved all the characters and how they mixed in with each other. Michael Douglas and the surprisingly good Brittany Murphy easily stand out from the rest of the cast. I liked the directing of Gary Fleder, it was nothing fancy but it didn’t take away any tension so it’s a success in my opinion. Overall, this movie is not a masterpiece of any kind, but definitely an enjoyable movie and it won’t leave you feeling like you’ve been cheated either. For me, it was definitely worth it!
