I remember it as if today was the day I watched the first ‘A Quiet Place’ in theaters in 2018. It was a sensation that until then hadn’t been felt in a movie theater. movie theater: everyone in silence, letting the popcorn chew and then to enjoy the scary suspense offered by the film.
At that point, I realized that watching a horror or suspense movie is a collective catharsis, and the great pleasure of taking scares is when you are full of people who have the same feeling. Yes, “A Quiet Place” was a movie to be enjoyed in theaters, in all its glory.
With more than a year late, “A Quiet Place – Part 2” is finally released in theaters. The plot of the film could no longer dialogue with our current storyline: something is saddening planet Earth and forcing people to stay at home while fighting the unknown. Seems familiar?
After the tragic events of the first film, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their battle to survive in silence. Forced into the unknown, they soon realize that creatures that hunt with good guidance aren’t the only threat lurking along the way.
Beginning a few minutes after the end of the first film, this sequence manages to expand this universe and say a little more about the origin of the monsters through flashbacks which again justify the presence of John Krasinski in the cast. The scene in which we find out how the monsters got here is very interesting and how quickly society has been destroyed with their arrival. These moments also serve to introduce the mysterious character of Cillian Murphy, who is the main addition in the cast.
The first film turned silence into one of the raw materials of suspense and shaped a modern fable about family love, communication and survival. I never imagined that a film with little dialogue could dialogue so much with the audience, and create the strongest possible sensations: anguish, despair, terror, suffocation and sweat.
Setting up a spooky atmosphere and showing off what was going on in the first few scenes, the sequence manages to bring back everything that worked in “ A Quiet Place ” and elevate it to the Second Power. We have more suspense, more action, more desperation and new characters. It’s a story that manages to tie the first movie together and open the door to a third movie, which sometimes makes it feel like a transition movie.
While it doesn’t bring such an innovative and original story as the first one, “ A Quiet Place – Part 2 ” does manage to succeed in what it does, and it will certainly leave you with a stomach ache. to be so nervous as you go. with the protagonists – who this time embark on different journeys.
We have three main arcs happening at the same time: the agonizing saga of the character of Emily Blunt trying to make her baby cry so as not to attract the monsters, the adventure of the characters of Millicent Simmonds and Cillian Murphy as they search for a safe place. and the desperation of Noah Jupe’s character as he wanders the city streets alone in search of medicine. These stories intersect whenever one of them gets too tense and we need a break.
The script written by Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, with help from John Krasinski, fills you with excruciating tension as it unfolds slowly – but powerfully. And Krasinski shines again in the direction that creates increasing tension in a totally Hitchcockian way that shows just how talented the actor is behind the camera.
With its mix of relentless tension and layered narrative about the family nucleus, “ A Quiet Place – Part 2 ” manages to stay almost on par with the first film, losing only in the element of originality. However, we’re rewarded with double everything, including the desperation of silence and the angst of accompanying these characters on their suffocating and dangerous journeys. Even more so now that we’ve been through times so similar to theirs.
