Shhh... the smallest sound we make could have monsters breathing down our necks! It feels more appropriate to talk about this movie without saying a word. If we were told that there was a movie where not a single word was spoken, it would seem like it could not possibly be that interesting.
Anyone would have a hard time wrapping their heads around how the movie managed to go on for 90 minutes in almost absolute silence unless they watched it.
The first production of A Quiet Place was rated high by Rotten Tomatoes with a 93% movie rating, and it is definitely worth all the hype because this is an epic must-watch movie for everyone, which was also dubbed as one of the top ten movies of 2018 receiving many award nominations.
It’s impossible not to connect with the characters of this movie on a very emotional level because you feel the things they feel even in the absence of the words to convey them; that’s part of why this is such a great movie.
The first part of the series was filled with emotional and scary moments like having to go through the pain of labor and childbirth in complete silence to prevent the monsters from attacking.
The movie depicts them as a simple family of ordinary people who happen to be in real danger and are just trying so hard to survive while looking out for each other. These are the things that make the movie so breathtaking.
The second part of the movie casts the same actors in a horror film and end of the world era, where there are blind monsters who have an extremely sharp hearing to compensate. They can detect sound from a long distance, and the slightest sound can get everyone in trouble.
This sequel was again written and directed by John Krasinki, featuring actors Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe, who remain the original cast making another appearance for the sequel. It’s great to see the writer and director Krasinki also play flashback roles as his character died in the first movie. Really hard for everyone to make it out alive. A Quiet Place 2 will be released in theaters on May 28, 2021.
The family is not all that helpless though, they also found a way to use sound as a weapon to fight back against the monsters, and they learned to communicate using sign language and gesturing because of the need to remain quiet.
The sequel shows some new faces, the director's way of letting us know the characters are not alone, and it’s the entire world that is stuck in the same ‘blind monsters’ situation.
The family takes a quiet journey through unfamiliar lands and comes in contact with Cillian Murphy, who warns them that “the people who are left are not the kind of people that are worth saving.” What does he mean by that? The trailer also shows the family heading for a signal tower, flashing red lights as the family continues their fight to survive.
