Editorial Reviews

In this suspense-driven romantic thriller, silence turns to chaos and fear as Academy AwardÂ(r) winner (Best Actress, 1987) Marlee Matlin is stalked by a killer who knows she cannot hear. Jillian (Matlin), an athletic trainer who is hearing-impaired, is unaware that a client (John McGinley) has hidden a stolen rare coin in her pager. When his car is blown up, Jillian starts to receive terrifying threats and enlists the client's friend (D.B. Sweeney) to help track the killer. Martin Sheen co-stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Speaking evil of "Hear no Evil" October 25, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This move isn't horrible, it isn't the worst movie I have ever seen but it left me feeling flat. While some would compare this to the classic "Wait Until Dark" it never comes close to the quality of that film.
The plot centers around the rarest coin in the world. Everyone wants it except for Marlee Matlin, inevitably, it ends up in her possession. This movie has the typical cop on the take, unknown reporter trying to make a name for himself, good guy drawn in by the damsel in distress, and best friend of the heroine along to show that this whole business is dangerous.
The characters are not well developed, and none really earned any sympathy from me. The bad guys were laughably bad (albeit with a taste for opera) and thuggy. even the main characters seemed to never be committed wholeheartedly to the events around them.
The ending might have been a real shocker to those who did not follow the movie closely at the beginning, but to the rest of us it was just marking time waiting for the closing credits to roll.

3.0 out of 5 stars MUTE POINT September 26, 2005
Courageous Oscar winner Marlee Matlin (Children of a Lesser God) stars as a deaf mute who becomes embroiled in a devilish plot formulated by crooked cop Martin Sheen. She's in possession of a rare coin stolen at Sheen's bequest, and she doesn't know she's got it. Reporter John C. McGinley (dependable as always) hid the coin in her cell phone; his buddy D. B. Sweeney (in a useless Stephen Baldwin impersonation) is called on to help when it looks like Matlin is next on Sheen's hit list. While it's a sturdy thriller, its pace is sometimes static and slow, impeding any true suspense. The ending is fairly predictable and Matlin's attempts to pull an Audrey Hepburn Wait Until Dark admirable, but the movie collapses on itself.
