Covid has been a menace. From the time it entered the US, it has caused our world to turn upside down, especially moviegoers. When the government began requiring businesses to shut down, movie productions were forced to postpone their release dates — and “A Quiet Place 2” was no exception. Set to come out in March 2020, the movie was not released until May 28, 2021, but it was well-received by the public despite the long wait.
A Quiet Place 2 is the second installment of the franchise. It starts as a prequel, showing the day the aliens landed on earth and the mayhem they caused, and eventually continues where the previous movie left off. It follows a family trying to survive an alien invasion, without losing who they are in the process. This film takes place in real-time and is set in upstate New York. However, it is a fantasy world in which malicious aliens crash land on earth intending to kill every human they hear.
The movie’s plot was captivating. Before you know it, you will be holding your breath and hanging on to the edge of your seat, waiting to see what happens next. The rhythm of the movie is slightly dynamic, but you hardly notice it because the scenes tie together very well.
“A Quiet Place 2” is enjoyable for teenagers and young adults. With a PG- 13 rating, this movie is great for date night or just hanging out with friends.
The cameraman did an excellent job with the scenes and each shot added to the suspense of the film.
In my opinion, the movie was mainly for entertainment, but one line stood out to me. After her daughter leaves to find other survivors, Evelyn begs Emmett to go find her and bring her back, but when Emmett says no she says, “… he’d look you right in the eye and tell you that his little girl is absolutely the type of person worth saving”. I believe the movie revolves around this line. A lesson can be taken from this. Viewers need to surround themselves with good people and hold on to them.
