A Quiet Place Part II Review: A Thrilling Sequel You Must See in Theaters
Don’t make any noise … because the monsters are back and bloodthirsty as always. A Quiet Place Part II hits theaters after a year of delay. I’m happy to report that the movie is worth the wait. The Abbott family has escaped their farm and must now find refuge in a terrifying world. They continue to be hunted by ferocious creatures, but discover that humans are just as ruthless. The sequel is a tense, visceral thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The plot falls prey to standard horror tropes, but never lets the anxiety subside.
A quiet place, part II initially explores two timelines. We see “Day One” of the attacks, and then the immediate aftermath of Lee (John krasinski) heroic death. Evelyn (Emily blunt) cradles her newborn baby as she guides Regan (Millicent Simmonds) and Marcus (Noah Jupe) through the woods. They carry an oxygen canister for the baby. While Regan has prepared a portable speaker to amplify the high frequency distortion of your hearing aid. He also brings his father’s maps.
The Abbott’s bare feet tread cautiously toward the source of a distant fire signal. His arrival in a decrepit factory is not without its problems. A life or death situation leads to another survivor. Emmett (Cillian Murphy) is an old friend of the family, but he’s not happy to see them. He has lost all hope. There is no more room for goodness. Emmett gives them a day to leave, but a mysterious song on the radio awakens Regan’s resolve. If there are other people out there, they need to know your weapon. But survival of the fittest means that the creatures are not your only adversaries.
A Quiet Place Part II keeps the tension flowing smoothly from the first movie. The characters are constantly under some kind of duress. Writer and director John Krasinski wows with situational awareness. The baby is not an accessory and must be kept calm at all times. They need medical supplies and food. There is safety in an oven, but the oxygen will run out. The Abbotts communicate using American Sign Language (ASL). Emmett must remember to look Regan directly in the face and “announce” when talking to her. They are all haggard from the perpetual trial. The cast of the ensemble does a great job of expressing the arduous cost of staying alive.
John Krasinski’s script has several flaws. The narrative suffers from the same illogical behavior that plagues horror movies. The characters, who are all very smart and capable, act brash and foolish when they obviously shouldn’t. There are no spoilers here, but I’ll use the analogy of teenagers breaking up and running blindly into a forest when chased by ax murder. There is no reason for such a drastic move, but the filmmakers have done it to create cheap conflict. You have to take into account the voluntary suspension of disbelief for this genre. The original was so smart that I hoped the sequel would be on the same level.
A quiet place, part II dramatically broadens the scope of the general story. We learn a lot more about the creatures, especially a new critical weakness with huge ramifications. But there are many unknown things that provoke multiple future films in this universe. A quiet place, part II It is a must see in cinemas. The cold and dark environment increases the fear factor. I saw the movie in a state-of-the-art Dolby theater. The audience was glued to the screen. You could have heard a mouse fart. A quiet place, part II is a Platinum Dunes, Sunday Night and Buffalo FilmWorks production. Paramount Pictures will release the film in theaters on May 28, followed by a streaming premiere on July 12 on Paramount +.
