  • "More of the same" has rarely been carried off with such elan.

    June 7, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The characters ooze slowly and lethargically away from each other, and without that farmhouse location, and the symbolic power of the family it implies, the horror movie tension simply evaporates.

    June 7, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Krasinski's slick, skilful follow-up to his 2018 post-apocalyptic thriller works well as a genre exercise...

    June 6, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • While it's not as fresh or surprising as the original, A Quiet Place Part II adeptly balances the demands of both the genre movie and the emotional impact of the family drama.

    June 5, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Maybe nothing could have possibly matched the original for me. [But] everyone is very good in it. The kids, Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds, really are the stars here.

    June 3, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The new film has inevitably lost the concision of the last, in the same way the minimalist frights of Alien were swapped for the wham-bam action of Aliens... In other instances, though, the stakes have been raised.

Audience Reviews for A Quiet Place Part II

  • 6d ago
    Solid continuation that I certainly enjoy, but doesn't quiiiite hit the simpler heights of the original. Krasinski continues to deliver the goods on suspense and Simmonds and Murphy shine together. With the expansion of ‘Part II', there's a central sequence that undercuts the suspense by fast-cutting between a scene on a dock and a scene in a bunker. A bit of the brilliant tension of the original is lost by diluting the claustrophobia and immediacy of the set pieces - and thus the sense of feeling agonizingly "trapped" in the moment with the protagonists. The too-short third act does the build of this thrilling story a disservice. While ‘Part II' could've chosen a slightly narrower lane rather than expand its world all at once (I felt that time with both Scoot's and Djimon's crews got cut), what works still works damn well, and these are still the best character-driven invasion films since ‘Signs'.

    A Quiet Place Part II is the first movie I've seen physically in theaters since the middle of March 2020, and I genuinely missed the experience. It's been the longest I've ever gone in my adult life without seeing movies in the theater, and this was one that felt like the presentation would be elevated by the big screen and superior sound system. Taking place nearly minutes after the conclusion of the 2018 hit, the surviving Abbott family ventures off their farm to find refuge and potentially find a way to protect themselves and neighboring communities from the killer monsters attracted to noise. The opening is the only flashback we get; everything else is forward-looking. I would have enjoyed getting more Day One experiences where the monsters first attacked, especially as we become open to new characters and their own harrowing journeys. The movie, written and directed by John Krasinski, isn't quite as novel and brilliantly executed as its predecessor, but it's still a strong sequel that gives you more while leaving you wanting more by the end. The majority of this lean 97 minutes is split between the family, one half staying put in a warehouse basement, and the other traveling out into the open to find a radio tower. The set pieces are still taut though rely more on jump scares this go-round, granted well executed jump scares that still got me to jolt in my seat and squeeze my girlfriend's hand a little tighter. Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins) is the most significant addition as an Abbott family friend who has lost his whole family since that opening flashback. He's a broken-down man, a parallel for Krasinski's father figure from the first film, and at points it feels like he's being set up to appear sinister, or at least hiding some dark secret that never really comes to fruition. The world building is expanded and introduces a very Walking Dead-familiar trope of desperate people being just as dangerous as deadly monsters, though in a world of hearing-enhanced creatures, I would think there's more danger in larger numbers than security. The movie earns its triumphant ending even if the staging, and cross-cutting, is a little heavy-handed. A Quiet Place Part II is a successful sequel that understands the unique appeal of its franchise and how to keep an audience squirming while also remain emotionally involved and curious for more. Nate's Grade: B+
