Sometimes movies have incredible hooks that suck me in and chew me up, leaving me terrified; other times, they don’t. Let me tell you that A Quiet Place Part II (2021) had the hook. The thing that I never understood from the first installment was the how, and this one filled in those blanks.
The opening shows the world how it was in the small town where our heroes are from and the catastrophic events that unleash the beasts on the world. The fright I felt from this part of the movie surprised me, and it set the tone for the rest of it.
The monsters are some of the most horrific things I’ve seen in quite a while. I usually complain about CGI, but I won’t this time because these creatures are amazing. The survival theme is the same as the first, with Regan Abbott (Millicent Simmonds) taking the reigns to find a way to save the world. And if I say more, you won’t need to see this film.
A Quiet Place Part II is better than the first, and I gave it 5 out of 5 Stars.
