No One Will Save You, is a meatball. While the movie has a top notch performance by Kaitlyn Dever, impeccable aesthetics, and stunning set design, it suffers from a bland script with a forced narrative. Not to mention an unthreatening menace as well. Kind of like a meatball with misplaced ingredients, this film has a bland plot. Making this a dish that's too fancy for it's own good.
However, Brian Duffield is definitely a talented director and filmmaker, but his writing seems to be middle of the road. He has great concepts, but falls short in delivery. Some may argue that this film is decent, but for me, it's a hard pass. The main antagonists of the film are a chaotic blend of telepathy, telekinesis and psychokinesis. At parts it was overwhelming and almost laughable, which is a shame, because Duffield and his team really have an eye for suspense.
Regardless, however, of the film's technical prowess, the plot lacks substance. The lack of dialogue, while an interesting artistic choice, leaves the main character waiting for events to unfold. The forced plot points and lack of organic development make it feel as if decisions were made solely for the purpose of cool/creep factor and ignoring the truth of it's own narrative. In fact, by the end of the movie, it seems to fail to find a cohesive conclusion. I found myself sitting and waiting for the movie to end, as it seemed to drag on with it's fifty different endings. It left me feeling utterly dissatisfied. There was even a part at the very end where the movie broke the fourth wall. An overconfident decision that felt gimmicky with a hint of cringe.
Nevertheless, No One Will Save You, can stand alone on its technical prowess, as its cinematic elements tend to shine. However, the overindulgent plot leaves you longing for a more balanced and fulfilling experience. Just a trivial meal, served with an extravagant garnish, this movie is the equivalent of putting grey poupon on an undercooked hotdog.
