Jerome1994’s review published on Letterboxd:
A Quiet Place Part II has been one of my most anticipated films for a long while now, the first film which released in 2018 was one of my favorite films of that year and was a huge favorite from a lot of people. A Quiet Place Part II is one of those horror sequels where you can easily argue that it’s better than the first film, before I start this is going to be a NO SPOILER REVIEW! A Quiet Place Part II is everything a sequel should be, it ups the ante from the first film such as the thrilling atmosphere which is still present and as terrifying as ever. It expands on the world building we see more locations and more people, how some people are dealing with what’s going on. The film focuses on Millicent Simmonds who does a flawless job in her role, she delivers on every single level, I absolutely love with what they did with her character she truly brings so much raw energy into her role to the point where it kind of brings you to tears. Cillian Murphy is also a very nice addition to the cast, he also brings an incredibly raw performance that is quite powerful, I also couldn’t help but feel this movie had a lot of The Last Of Us vibes to it which is a huge positive (especially scenes with Murphy and Simmonds together they look like they can be a really good Joel and Ellie.) Like the first film the sound is used brilliantly with tons of quite and tense moments that will definitely have you on the edge of your seat wondering “what will happen next” it’s effective on every single level, one thing that I noticed that was truly fantastic was the editing, it’s incredibly fast paced and truly incredible to the point where I found it brilliantly done. There’s something about it that really makes the film all come together and makes it that much stronger in every single way possible, the action scenes are also incredibly well done especially when combined with the editing and sound, I feel like A Quiet Place Part II gives some of the most raw and powerful action scenes I’ve seen in a film in a long time. John Krasinski truly does his homework when it comes to creating a horrifying and thrilling atmosphere, every single moment in this movie you are on the lookout because anything can happen. It’s masterful filmmaking that you really do not see all too often, Overall A Quiet Place Part II is an incredible film that I’m so glad turned out the way it did! It’s one of those horror films that honestly makes you proud to be a huge fan of the genre (for those that don’t know my favorite genre is horror!) I highly recommend checking this one out easily one of the best films of the year!
A Quiet Place Part II is now in Theaters!
