A Quiet Place Part II

A Quiet Place Part II ★★★

A Quiet Place 2 is more straightforward & visceral than Part 1. Krasinski directs the hell out of this, he does a good job of ratcheting up the tension and delivering some rock solid set pieces (akin to Spielberg's War of the Worlds & Jurrasic Park) without ever losing focus of the characters. Just like the first one, I was really impressed with Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe’s performances. This time Krasinski flexes hard with cross-cutting/parallel editing, proves that his direction is only getting more confident. Tho his screenplay is weak, the movie fails to balance it's fantastic sequences and old/new characters. I hate how abruptly it ends and asks you to wait for a sequel.
