A Quiet Place, Part II

A few years ago “A Quiet Place” was a surprise hit; a unique, suspenseful horror film. Besides the different plot and very little dialogue it had an almost unseen predator and a lot of surprises. I love when a movie catches me off guard by being better than anticipated. So when I saw that they were making a sequel I wasn’t thrilled because they usually are not as good as the original. Once again I was pleasantly surprised because Part II is almost as good as the original. Instead of telling the same story by just changing around the scenes, this sequel’s plot is new and different. It moves the story along and is as suspenseful as the the first film. John Krasinski once again directs, but is only seen in a few flashback scenes. This time Emily Blunt carries the film. Like Part I, I was on the edge of my seat. The invaders are still scary and by conversing in sign language and pantomime throughout, it is even more suspenseful. The makers ended the movie at a point where they can make a Part III. If you liked the first one you will enjoy Part II. And it was great to see it on a big screen.
