Silence brings Church and God to the forefront and shows you what it was like to be a Christian in Japan, back in the day, as the year is not clearly stated when this took place.
Did we forget to mention that this movie has both Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver in it? Well they are, and even though Adam Driver seems to be the one with the weakest story line, I found myself question what he was doing during the film.
Oh, you thought we forgot to say how good Liam Neeson was, well you wrong. We only made him apart of this review as much as he was in the movie, only about five minutes worth. He wasn't even his normal self. He was a weak shell of a man, who for some reason couldn't beat anyone up. He had his own issues, and he didn't have a phone that he could use to tell people he would hunt them down. Maybe next time.
All in all, if you want to see a movie that has depth and character, see this movie. However with this long runtime, make sure you have a bucket of popcorn to help yourself get through the movie.

What would I have changed? (Spoilers)
I'll tell you what, this was one long movie. Make sure your prepared. I wouldn't have made this movie that long.
