    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This franchise has so much potential but it never meets that. Part II has the material of a TV episode and a weak one for that, with nothing really memorable, no bathtub scene kinda setup or nail in the staircase kinda buildup. No space for any character.

En az elli altmış yıllık bir romanın içindeymişsiniz gibi hissettiren dünyası...

Keşke film, Cortazar muhabbetinin döndüğü ve sonunda beni ağlatan o sahnenin noktalandığı anda bitseydi... Keşke devam etmeseydi. Fakat yine de senenin en iyi yerli filmlerinden biri oldu benim için İşe Yarar Bir Şey.
