|This Paramount film was originally going to be released in A Quiet Place: Part II March 2020, like many other films, to a cycle of postponements for now without end. John Krasinski returns as director and Emily Blunt is the star of this sequel to "A Quiet Place", a horror film that became one of the most unexpected and resounding successes of cinema in 2018.|
|Krasinski and Blunt, who are married and have two children together, will thus return to the sinister environment of "A Quiet Place" in which a family tried to survive monsters sensitive to sound. In this way, the difference between life and death for humans lay in their ability to remain in the most scrupulous silence. With a budget of 17 million dollars, "A Quiet Place" grossed 341 million in theaters around the world and received unanimous applause from the critics.|
In 2018, John Krasinski surprised with A Quiet Place (A silent place), a film that was a box office success and that presented us with a horror story that returned us to the origins of fear through the absence of sound as the main element of the narrative, which managed to connect with the audiences, silent in the rooms, reflecting on the situations and characters.
Now, after a delay of over a year, A Quiet Place Part II is finally released in theaters, as it should be.
This second part, written in its entirety by Krasinsky, takes us to the moments in which the first ends, but not before showing us a long flashback of what happened a year before when the monsters arrived on Earth, where in addition to giving us more Information about the origin of the creatures is presented to us by the character of Emmett (Cillian Murphy).
Returning to the present, now the Abbott family, Evelyn (Emily Blunt), Regan (Millicent Simmonds), Marcus (Noah Jupe) and a newborn baby, will have to manage to survive without the guidance of Lee, the father (Krasinsky) venturing to come out of hiding in search of more people who can help them. Regan (who is deaf) will try to take the lead role looking for a way to find help for her family.
However, in addition to fighting the monsters, they will also face the human beings that are on the way, who with each passing day lose their humanity and become something worse than the monsters.
Within seconds of concluding the first film, Evelyn Abbott (Emily Blunt) escapes with her children from the rubble of her old lair and embarks on a journey with no safe direction. The order of the day is to survive monsters that will attack anything that makes the slightest noise, be it a misstep or a cry of pain. They are soon joined by Emmett (Cillian Murphy), an old but enigmatic acquaintance who provides the moral counterweight to the story.
Directed by John Krasinski, whose script separates and isolates members of the Abbott family throughout tense sequences that often go into crisis simultaneously. The suspense construction is skillful and effective, with a camera concentrating more on the detail and limitations of individual perspectives rather than the spectacle that suggests the end of the world (or the association with Michael Bay, one of the producers).
With Krasinski and Blunt relegated to the background, the story finds its emotional core in the relationship and subtle performances of Murphy and Millicent Simmonds (Regan, the deaf daughter of the Abbott). It is they who carry the thematic torch of the first film, guide the plot and end up owning it along a rather predictable but no less effective path.
The silent horror of the original film has been partly supplanted by generic delays of action, and its sense of urgency has been diluted for obvious reasons, but A Quiet Place Part II (2020) retains the delicacy of its formula intact by undermining primal fears and focusing on its characters. The further you get away from the characters, the less convincing you are; the more you stick to them, the more your story feels valuable.
Nothing less than a post-apocalyptic horror and science fiction story about a family facing a bleak future where humanity would have been displaced to the bottom of the food chain after strange creatures from another world, apparently blind, but with a predatory instinct based on sound, they will invade the Earth until they border the few survivors to a resounding silence. To an overflowing silence.
A Quiet Place became a high-impact cinematographic experience as it led us to experience firsthand the dimension of fear, no longer based on strident sounds or annoying screamers -something widely used nowadays in commercial horror films- and instead, it made us understand the greatness of silence — even far beyond music and noise — within a film production.
