A Quiet Place Part 2is one of those rare sequels that didn’t leave me disappointed at the end. I found so much to love about Emily Blunt, John Krasinski and Cillian Murphy’s movie that I’m contemplating watching it again in a few days.
There’s lot’s of heart in this one. So much so that the word that lit up in my mind throughout most of the movie, and especially towards the end, is love; though perhaps not in the most obvious way. The acting is brilliant and you’re going to jump out of your skin a few times. You may even cry, once or twice.
Don’t be surprised if as soon as the movie starts, you find yourself confused and wondering whether the cinema has messed up and is playing A Quiet Place (2018) instead of A Quiet Place Part 2. They haven’t made a mistake, because soon enough, just about everything starts making sense, and after a slightly slower pace, it all picks up and becomes so engrossing and entertaining that you probably won’t see the end coming.
As for what I wish was different about this movie, there are a few small things, two of which happen in act one. The first involves the placing of the baby in the box, then wading away in the water. This scene proved confusing, and distressing, in part because of the shot that follows it.
My other issue is with the arguably unnecessary pounding musical score that accompanies what happens after Blunt’s character says ‘Run.’ I feel that the same scene works better in the trailer, where it’s captured without music. Or, maybe the music that ends up in the film simply stood out a lot, and not in the best way.
Overall, I’d say that the annoyances that come with A Quiet Place Part 2, in no way outweigh the fun and moving ride that this movie is. Watch it if you haven’t already. You may find that the word love lights up brightly for you, as it did for me.
The official trailer forA Quiet Place Part 2 is here. A John Krasinski directed horror / thriller starring Emily Blunt, Cillian Murphy and about a family whose survival is dependant on how quiet they can be in their everyday lives…
This is one of very few trailers that doesn’t feel too long even though it’s more than 2.5 minutes in length.
I’m definitely looking forward to all the major mommy ‘badassery’ we can expect from Blunt. I also find myself relieved that Murphy will be playing a good guy. The Abbot family could really do with another adult on their side. Especially considering all the people left who ‘aren’t worth saving’.
Okieriete Onaodowan, Blake DeLong, Ashley Dyke, Andy Rich and Silas Pereira-Olson also star.
A Quiet Place Part 2 sees the return of the Abbot family (Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds) as they learn that the creatures that hunt by sound aren’t the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.
Directed by John Krasinski; additional key cast includes Cillian Murphy, Djimon Hounsou, Wayne Duvall, Lauren-Ashley Cristiano…
I’m excited to see more ingenuity from the Abbots. I want to know the new and clever ways will they’ll think up to ensure their survival.
Also, I like the introduction of Murphy. My guess is that he’s probably not a ‘good guy…’ or is he?
Ashley Dyke, Andy Rich, Okieriete Onaodowan, Blake DeLong and Silas Pereira-Olson also star.
Starring Emily Blunt, co-written / directed by and starring John Krasinski, A Quiet Placeis a scary movie I wanted to see regardless of my characteristic of being ‘easily spooked into sleeplessness and nightmares.’
Set during a post apocalyptic future, Blunt and Krasinski are a couple with three children. In an effort to stay alive, the family are forced to live in silence because simply not doing so will mean they’re heard and subsequently become prey for mysterious creatures that hunt by sound.
I enjoyed this movie and was shocked, moved and impressed by the story, characters, performances plus the execution of the most memorable moments. A Quiet Place did a good job of showing the audience the general cleverness one would need in order to survive in a world where sound becomes deadly.
I absolutely want to believe that I’d survive living in silence. However there may be too much about me that is loud. A surprise sneeze attack among many other things would surely mean the end of me.
Besides making me an even bigger fan of Blunt and Krasinski, A Quiet Place made meappreciate my freedom to make sound. It reminded me of the gargantuan challenge that is parenting. And because of blunt’s character, it also left me feeling even more empowered and powerful as a young woman, something I wasn’t expecting.
If I had to pick one thing that I wasn’t totally in love with about this movie, it would be the jarring move from silence to a seemingly super loud sound / music.
Watch it because it’s good and A Quiet Place will likely not result in a single moment of sleeplessness. It didn’t for me.. yet!
