A Quiet Place Part II

A Quiet Place Part II ★★★½

What I went to watch in 2021 - Film 5

A really solid follow up to the ambitious first film. It's definitely a film of two halves with Murphy an Simmonds carrying the story while we jump back to watching Blunt and Jupe just doing things for reason. I get why things had to be split up but it makes the film a bit of a slog. There's a great atmosphere crafted here again and it was enjoyable to watch "Day 1" of this apocalypse in the beefy prologue. Sadly the climax ends at what feels like the midway point of the narrative so there will undoubtedly be another sequel which is fine it just feels like its hindered by that fact and isn't as tightly knit as the original was.
