Hear No Evil


(out of 5)

Routine, tired premise is given a false new jolt by giving the leading lady a physical challenge. A hearing-impaired personal trainer () inadvertently comes into possession of a rare, stolen coin. Now her life is in danger, and not even her dopey-faced restaurant-owning boyfriend () can do much to save her. Having a deaf heroine is certainly a leap forward for a Hollywood movie, and Matlin’s interesting personality gives the film a major edge that it doesn’t necessarily deserve, but it’s still as predictable as any film that follows the Wait Until Dark plotline. For once it might be nice to see a movie where a heroine gets into trouble for something she herself does wrong, as opposed to this Flight of The Innocent crap we’re constantly having shoved down our throats.
