A Quiet Place Part II

A Quiet Place Part II

Wow! Really pleasantly surprised by this. Improves on the original in nearly every way. This is an example where a super simple script is supremely elevated by tight direction and some genuinely tense and clever setpieces. I honestly don't usually find myself at the edge of my seat during movies like this, but this one got me. While I appreciate the wonderfully concise nature of the film, at first I did feel like the ending was a little abrupt. But honestly the more I think about it the more I appreciate the simplicity. The film often juggles two or even three separate tense moments together, and while I usually find that style annoying, I think it really soars here. And what a fucking opening scene! Great job Krasinski! Sad I didn't see it on the big screen. Stoked for the next one.
