A Quiet Place Part II is the second installment in the franchise, which will also feature an upcoming spin-off and possibly a third film. Emily Blunt returns to play Evelyn, the mother desperate to save her family after the death of her husband (played by John Krasinski) by blind aliens who feast on humans.
How long does A Quiet Place Part II take?
Most horror movies usually don’t last too long because the anticipation and suspense of horror movies are too long to bear.
In addition, it’s hard to hold a viewer’s attention for too long, especially if they have trouble looking at what’s on screen without using a pillow to hide behind.
A Quiet Place Part II followed suit and lasts 97 minutes, meaning it’s just over an hour and a half.
This is the same as the first movie, which was also 90 minutes long, leaving fans glued to their seats for quite some time.

Emily Blunt in a quiet place
Anton Bitel of Sight and Sound said: “While certainly exciting for its duration, what you see – or hear – is what you get.
“Because here, as in A Quiet Place, viewers will find little subtext that continues to ring and resonate in their ears afterward.”
One of the biggest concerns critics have shared is how the second film is louder and more action-packed than its predecessor, sometimes at the cost of its emotional weight.
Clariss Loughrey of The Independent said in her three-star review: “A Quiet Place Part II is bolder, more action-driven and louder.
Millicent Simmonds in a Quiet Place, Part II
- A Quiet Place Part II ending explained – what happened?
“It’s still exciting to watch, even as the ideas eventually soften the terror of what came before.”
Rolling Stone’s David Fear added in his three-star review, “What once felt smart now feels like the kind of corporate entertainment brand-building exercise cynical enough to leave you speechless.”
That said, others have focused on the cast’s commendable performances, namely Emily Blunt and Millicent Simmonds.
Robbie Collin of The Telegraph said: “Blunt remains a joy of steel, and there can be no argument with her signature shotgun-plus-tea-dress look, reminiscent of Ellen Ripley at school.”
Empire Magazine’s Ian Freer added in his three-star review, “A Quiet Place Part II may lack the cleverness and novelty of its predecessor, but it offers strong sets, Millicent Simmonds shines and Krasinski remains a director to watch.”
There are some critics who made it clear that this film was not for them, with Little White Lies’ David Jenkins saying the film was “let down by a laughably contrived screenplay.”
Overall, however, the film’s reception has been good, although the first film received much more praise for its concept and originality.
A Quiet Place received an overall score of 96 percent from critics, showing how, while the reception may not have been great, John Krasinski has proven himself to be an exciting director.
