I usually think that a movie’s opening scene or sequence is very important, and in a horror film, this is especially true. You know ‘A Quiet Place Part 2’ is going to be something special when the title card ‘Day 1’ appears at the start. It’s also a very amazing sequence. Although I’m not usually a big fan of jump scares, this movie’s first one really grabbed me, and I’m not easily moved. Everything else in the movie stems from this brilliantly paced opening scene.
This movie had a lot of things I liked and other things I didn’t. In order to conclude with a good statement, let me address the negatives first. In a supporting part, John Krasinski was missed in the movie. We are reminded of how endearing and captivating he is in the brief time we have with him. Cillian Murphy is just unable to duplicate it. Additionally, it didn’t seem like the movie contributed anything to the original. The plot develops, but we don’t learn anything new.
The movie seems to be just meant to serve as a transitional piece between the first and, I’m assuming, the upcoming third installment of the series. Additionally, there’s a hint of hopelessness permeating everything. Because we’re not entirely sure where this is going, there may be a minor reduction in investment.

Positive aspects, however, abound. Since Krasinski is a talented director, the original is surely not a fluke. The film looks excellent, especially particular the creatures. Once more, the characters are quite appealing, especially the two kids. It’s quite uncommon to get child performers to carry a picture, yet these films succeed in doing so, and the result is a far superior movie. The tempo is also really rapid. The movie is essentially continuous, and I have a feeling that many viewers will be taken aback when the credits start to roll.
With two young adolescents, a helpless newborn son, and nowhere to go, grief-stricken Evelyn Abbott finds herself on her own after learning about the vulnerability of the supposedly invulnerable animals. Now, 474 days after the full-scale extraterrestrial invasion in A Quiet Place (2018), the Abbotts muster all of their bravery to abandon their now-burned-to-the-ground farm and set out on a treacherous journey to locate civilization. In light of this, the strong survivors are compelled to go past the limits and, in the hopes of a miracle, journey into uninhabited, dangerous region that is hauntingly silent. However, the enemy is everywhere this time.
About this, I’m not sure. Though I think I like it a little less than the previous one. It kicks things up a notch by adding plenty of creatures and action. However, Krasinski’s performance is sorely missed, and the original’s inventiveness isn’t nearly there. Still, it’s well worth seeing, and I’m looking forward to the next post.
