Thrilling but the invention has gone - A Quiet Place: Part II review by AER

Spoiler Alert
08/06/2021

Fast-paced sequel, that like most follow-ups seems redundant storywise. There's not much time for mourning as this film picks up directly after the last one finished, and we're pretty much straight into the action. Putting the 'sound monsters' into a more prominent position, it's a miracle that there's any tension left to dispense but fortunately there is. This time the central family are looking for refuge after their home is destroyed at the end of the first film, but much of what is introduced has been seen in other films/TV shows like The Road, The Walking Dead, Oblivion. It's Millicent Simmonds deaf child, who is once more, the main reason to buy a ticket, it's her bravery and invention that saves the day again and again. Cillian Murphy's new male lead is little more than a cipher, and Djimon Hounsou is even more wasted in a thankless role close to the end. A Quiet Place and this sequel are elevated from the dreck by good performances and good set-pieces. With it's unique position to give some sheen to the horror genre, it should have been less predictable and brought a few new ideas of its own to the party.

However, it was action-packed, scary, and it made me root for the main characters. So, in the main, it was a cool time killer.

Predictable, 'Milking-it', CGI-fest, Forgettable Sequel with Laughable Scenes - A Quiet Place: Part II review by PV

Spoiler Alert
12/09/2021

No idea why this is getting 4 star reviews. For the first film, yes. Not for this Jaws 2 level sequel.

It is yet another weak sequel milking it for all its worth. Silly non-plot, all the usual #metoo pc woke box-ticking casting. Goes nowhere - predictable cartoon character nonsense. I like Cillian Murphy loads, but this is just a pay cheque film.

The fist film was genuinely original - though many sci-fi stories had already covered the ground. Not movies though and the sound design was brilliant.

If you like computer games, CGI and have the attention span of a 12 year old, this may well be for you. It is forgettable drivel.

I actually laughed at some of the scenes - the creatures swimming? Or being unable to? Could never work it out.

If you want a real class monster movie, watch Jurassic Park, which has REAL animals which did once exist (though a fictionaised version) not fake monsters in an absurd alien plot and trite, lazy, by-numbers plot, sub-plot and character arcs. No doubt there'll be a 3 and a 4 if it keeps coining it, and then it will continue to eat itself - that started when they made a meal of this sequel.

For me, 1 star with half added for the couple of scare scenes and the song LA MER, then rounded up to 2.

Brash, Exciting Sequel - A Quiet Place: Part II review by GI

Spoiler Alert
03/06/2021

A big, brash and thoroughly entertaining sequel to the 2018 smash hit. After a brilliant prequel prologue the film begins exactly where the earlier one left off and whilst the originality of the life threatening need to remain absolutely silent and the very nasty creatures is now very familiar this story is moves the story into a quest narrative. With their home gone Evelyn (Emily Blunt) with her children, the deaf Regan (Millicent Simmonds), Marcus (Noah Jupe) and the new baby head towards the coast where they think there maybe a sanctuary from the creatures that roam the countryside. They meet up with former neighbour Emmett (Cillian Murphy) who may or may not be an asset! There are plenty of jump scares, some of which made me yelp and the set pieces are exciting, tense and at times full on horror. Emily Blunt is underused which is a bit lacking and there's some interesting aspects that are left a little too unexplained - a sequence involving some feral people for instance - but overall a worthy sequel and a semi-cliffhanger ending suggesting another film in the pipeline. Well worth a trip to the cinema for the sheer experience and spectacle and as a post apocalyptic story one can't help but think of this as a Covid 19 allegory.

Critic review

A Quiet Place: Part II (aka A Quiet Place: Part 2 / A Quiet Place 2) review by Mark McPherson - Cinema Paradiso

2018’s A Quiet Place was such a thrilling experience of a creature feature for its absence and clever use of sound. The film opened with a family collective remaining absolutely silent as they trek through a deserted and ravaged town. When one of them makes a noise, we see what happens when the monsters who only attack based on sound strike with violent and swift aggression. Part II opens much differently, starting on Day 1 of the creatures attacking when there was still a world of sounds. But the film proves to be far more than a prequel in how it ups the ante on the tension and nail-biting aspects that made the first film so remarkable.

Picking up where the last film left off, Evelyn Abbott (Emily Blunt) continues to fight for the survival of her children; the deaf Regan (Millicent Simmonds), the cautious Marcus (Noah Jupe), and their latest addition of a baby. Before that, however, we’re treated to setting up a bit of the local town where the Abbotts once resided, where their Evelyn’s husband Lee (John Krasinski) was once alive. It is during this prologue that establishes an old friend of Lee’s, Emmett (Cillian Murphy). He also had a son and, as we soon learn, he lost his family during the invasion of apt-listening monsters.

A new mission arises for the Abbotts, having discovered the weakness for the crippling monsters lie in audio feedback. They come across a radio frequency playing the same song over and over again. If they can find that station and play the feedback of Regan’s hearing aid, the monsters can be taken down with ease. However, a weary Emmett is reluctant to help, leaving it up to the determined Regan to force him into doing the right thing. While they venture off to dangerous parts unknown, Evelyn and Marcus try to hold down the fort of their new base in a factory, which is not easy with a crying baby. Their only hope is oxygen tanks to keep the baby quiet and they’re in short supply.

The second part of the Quiet Place saga expands just enough on the world to make it more appealing while still carrying that edge of its creative sound editing. We get to see more of the town before it went to shreds, making the adventures through the aftermath all the more cathartic. We get to see how a community of boaters turns violent against outsiders. We view more of the wreckage with savaged buses and trains strewn about a wilderness where the ecology grows wild in the absence of man. We also get to see an isolated community not affected by the monsters and, naturally, watch it crumble as well.

The editing is also spot-on with increasing the nail-biting aspects and the intensity, where the jump-scares are not just fakeouts. There’s a moment when three separate stories are all perfectly tuned to amp up the tension and anxiety. Will the oxygen be acquired? Will Emmett survive? Will Marcus outsmart the monster? It all bubbles up so brilliantly, especially with so many bookended payoffs.

A Quiet Place Part II isn’t quite as subdued as the first film but it does still manages to increase the scary and nerve-wracking moments that made the first film such a horror treat. It’s also finely trimmed that it never feels as though there’s a wasted moment or an aspect is lingered on for too long. It’s enough to make one all the more eager for a Part III.
