A Quiet Place 2 early reactions are in and it appears John Krasinski has worked his magic again. While a sequel could have gone horribly wrong, early reactions agree that Krasinski found a worthy storyline. The sequel has been hailed as a "masterclass in suspense," and Krasinski has been praised for his "unbelievably creative" story. By now, everybody should know that the writer/director did not initially want to come on board for A Quiet Place 2 out of fears of making a retread.
John Krasinski knew he had something special with A Quiet Place 2 and the early reactions are proving him to be right. The first installment is a tense rollercoaster with an emphasis on sound and the sequel does much of that again. However, Krasinski has found new ways to make some of the characteristics from the first movie new and exciting again. One viewer admits to having an upset stomach because of how tense the sequel is. You can read another reaction below.
"Damn, A Quiet Place Part II rocks! Honestly, just as tense and terrifying as the first one. There are some sequences in this film that are a masterclass in suspense. Bravo, John Krasinski. So good, so emotional, too."
A Quiet Place 2 is also proving to be something that people were not expecting, which also works in John Krasinski's favor. One viewer says, the movie "is not at all what I expected, and that's a great thing. A very creative sequel that goes to some unexpected and satisfying places. Bravo Millicent Simmonds." Millicent Simmonds has also been getting a ton of praise for her performance in the movie. One viewer declares the young actress to be the new Ellen Ripley.
John Krasinski's A Quiet Place 2 doesn't hit theaters for another few weeks, so there will be some more reactions and reviews to look forward to. However, it seems that the sequel is already getting unanimous praise, which is both good and bad. On one hand, this news will be comforting for horror fans who were skeptical about a sequel in the first place. On the other hand, this could raise the hype to place it could never realistically achieve.
For now, people who enjoyed A Quiet Place will probably really enjoy the sequel. It's tough to make a follow up to something that became an unexpected monster at the box office because now it's under the microscope. John Krasinski was reluctant to return and only did so after his wife and A Quiet Place 2 star, Emily Blunt, said that he should go forward with the idea. These early reactions might make the next two weeks drag on as the world waits to see what Krasinski did with the sequel.
