Director John Krasinski is back for round 2, directing the second installment of his A Quiet Place film series. Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe are all back as the remaining Abbott family members picking up the battle vs the monsters that we witnessed in the first film.
A Quiet Place 2 opens on “Day 1” when the creatures arrived as Lee Abbott (John Krasinski) and his family take it Marcus’ (Jupe) baseball game. Marcus is at bat when everyone sees a flaming meteor crash to the ground. Families pick up and run from the ball field and Reagan (Simmonds) rides with her dad and Evelyn takes Marcus and agree to meet up back home. Suddenly the creatures arrive and begin killing the townspeople that make noise. There is a great scene of Evelyn driving in reverse to avoid a runaway bus that a creature killed everyone on it.
Then the film comes forward to the day following the climactic ending of A Quiet Place with Evelyn taking the kids away from their farm toward Emmett’s (Murphy), a neighbor that lit his signal fire to signal he is safe. Reagan goes back in the house to get the speaker and microphone to battle the creatures. The Abbotts make their way barefoot down the railroad tracks and come to a deserted factory, or is it.
Evelyn hits a trip wire that releases and noise trap to bring out the monsters. Evelyn, Reagan and Marcus run for the warehouse to get away from the noise and potential danger when Marcus hits another trap, a bear trap that closes on his ankle. One of the creatures descends on them with Marcus screaming in pain, then Reagan uses the speaker and her hearing aid feedback to immobilize the creature as Evelyn blows its head off.
A mysterious man emerges from the factory and turns out to be Emmett, their family friend, but tells Evelyn they have to leave the next day! Evelyn pleads to Emmitt to help them and shows him the newborn they have in the make shift quiet box. Reagan finds a radio broadcast and takes off in the middle of the night to find the source of the broadcast. The next morning Marcus tells his mom and she convinces Emmett to go find her daughter. Evelyn leaves the baby with Marcus so she can get medicine for his leg and oxygen for the baby’s box. Divide and conquer only works for the creatures in the film.
A Quiet Place 2 is a fantastic follow up to the original edge of your seat thriller from 2018 with even more shocking scenes and tells the tale of Reagan solving the mystery her and her dad began working on in the first film. Will a deaf girl be able to take the technology she has used to fight the creatures and amplify it to take out the rest of the monsters!
I am Karl, The Flick Fanatic letting you know that A Quiet Place 2 is a must see and the perfect film to go back to the theaters to see! You will be on the edge of your seat throughout the film with all the action and battles with the creatures and it is awesome on the big screen.
