No One Will Save You Movie Review :
Arresting Caitlin Dever keeps this alien invasion together, though she’s limited by the story’s almost complete lack of dialogue, and the final stretch doesn’t do her justice.
Caitlin Dever (Booksmart, Roselyn, the mini-series Unbelievable) is one of Hollywood’s most exciting young stars, and an awards season regular for several years to come, well established before her recent turn in writer-director Brian Duffield’s Alien feature. . But at its best, No One Will Save You is a rousing display of the actor’s staggering talent and a neat little addition to his impressive oeuvre; At its weakest, it resembles John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place and M. A little Home Alone with hints of Night Shyamalan… is a little gimmicky.
No One Will Save You Movie Review
The almost wordless thriller begins with a home invasion, which is, in fact, by an alien. Bryan Adams (Dever), the sole occupant of his home, is under attack, She has no family or friends, the neighbors don’t like her and no one in town will even talk to her. The reasoning is explained later, but suffice it to say that Brian fights this extraterrestrial visitor with telekinetic powers on his own.

No One Will Save You Movie Kaitlyn Dever Gotta Do It All On Her Own
Somehow, relying on all her smarts (and some makeshift weapons from things around her house), she survives the attack, only to run outside and eventually realize that her entire town is under siege; Aliens of all shapes and sizes have infiltrated the area and are now taking over townspeople left, right and centre.
Will Brian manage to outsmart the aliens and save himself? What is her past trauma that the film hints at? And most of all, why does everyone hate him? No one will spare you these answers with mostly satisfying climaxes and slightly less satisfying twists.
It’s fun to watch the aliens (with their big heads and eyes looking like something out of a ’60s sci-fi flick) — some tall and wiry, others short and stocky — moving eerily all over the place, making appropriately creepy noises, and wanting to be nonchalant. Opens doors accordingly. . Brian Duffield (who previously wrote The Babysitter and Love and Monsters) effectively ramps up the tension with a few well-timed jump scares, although the special effects sometimes come across as too artful.
However, it’s Dever’s arresting performance that holds the film together, though she’s limited by the story’s almost complete lack of dialogue, and the final stretch (with the big reveal) doesn’t do her justice. Perhaps, fittingly, in a film called No One Will Save You, she has to do it all by herself.
