A QUIET PLACE PART II: WITHIN THE SOUND OF SILENCE

Share

A Quiet Place Part II is a 2021 American horror film and the sequel to the 2018 film A Quiet Place.

In writing and directing this sequel, Krasinski proves his intelligence and his non-subversive priorities when it comes to being a genre director. He also asserts his talent at orchestrating tense life-or-death scenes.“Part II” begins with a deliciously cruel reset, going back to day one of all this, when no one knew anything.

Overall, Krasinski keeps Part II focus on the Abbott family, but also does make the sequel open up more by expanding the narrative; taking the story to a few new places and introducing a new character. Much like the first film, Krasinski keeps Part II relatively short (clocking in around 97 minutes) and never feels bloated with unnecessary sub plots or going off on a tangent. Additionally, the thrills / suspenseful moments continue to work as they did in the previous entry as Krasinski stages plenty of terrific moments that build upon the scene’s tension and current situation.
