A Quiet Place Part II
John Krasinski has once again managed a masterpiece of cinema. A Quiet Place Part 2, is the sequel to the 2018 film of the same name. Once again we are plunged into a world where you mustn’t make a sound. The film pushes the viewer right back into the chaotic ending of the first film, continuing the tale of a family trying to survive during an alien apocalypse.
Having just had their house catch fire and the father of the family die, the Abbott family must now try and find help, and journey away to try and find the signs of life that Lee Abbott had been searching for.
Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe resume their roles as The Abbott Family and Cillian Murphy joins the already stellar cast in a new role. This film, unlike the first, focuses on the character development of the younger characters of Marcus and Regan; as they fight the challenges they have and triumph over them.
It was to me a rollercoaster of emotions, as i clinged on to the hope that nothing bad would happen as thing after thing chucked at me as the viewer, upping the ante everytime.
The use of numbing quietness and sudden loud noises make the jump scares actually impressive, and was definitely my favourite part of the movie.
An edge of your seat movie done right. I may even have screamed one or two times while watching.
I would recommend this to all horror/thriller lovers, even if you haven’t seen the first film.
As a side note, It is very impressive to see disabled actors prove themselves in big roles and the use of sign language as a main method of communication in both films made me smile. We need more directors giving people with disabilities a chance to be the one that saves the day in film.
