A Quiet Place Part II is a more straightforward horror film than its predecessor, with less emotional weight, but it delivers on well-executed suspense and action while faithfully carrying forward the first film's themes of themes of family and self-sacrifice.
Thomas and James discuss the series' remarkable use of silence to enhance the dramatic weight of even the slightest sound. James points to the film's unashamed embrace of the traditional role of the man as protector of the family, which nonetheless leaves room for a non-competitive collaboration of the sexes in facing danger.
A Quiet Place Part II is currently in theaters, streaming on Paramount+, and available for purchase on VOD.
