Buy it... if you appreciated Marco Beltrami's deconstruction of melody in the first score of this series, the sequel transforming those ideas into more accessible and organic glimmers of hope.

Avoid it... if the stock horror and suspense ambience of the predecessor deterred you completely from the concept, for those techniques carry over without much development.

Beltrami
A Quiet Place: Part II: (Marco Beltrami) One of the unresolved mysteries about the 2018 film A Quiet Place involved the arrival of the attacking aliens that are blind but stalk the planet, killing humans with their incredible sense of hearing. The opening of A Quiet Place: Part II shows their initial onslaught on unsuspecting humans that run for their lives in a small town where the story's lead family is based. Nobody can resist seeing streets full of shoppers suddenly thrashed by aliens, so kudos to the filmmakers for this indulgence. After that mayhem, the film shifts to the immediate aftermath of the first story and continues its narrative as the surviving family members leave their wrecked home to seek other survivors and means of living. The universe of A Quiet Place is explained better in the sequel, somewhat cheapening the mystery of the initial entry but allowing for gratuitous scenes of others being slaughtered. The family is determined to spread the news of the aliens' weaknesses discovered in the prior movie, and there is more reason for hope by the end of the sequel. The first major studio film released solely to theatres after the pandemic, A Quiet Place: Part II enjoyed solid returns and positive reviews. The soundscape of these films is immensely important, naturally. One of the reasons Marco Beltrami's music for the first film was noticed so widely was because it had an outsized impact when it played; much of the narrative was understandably left without music, the result of a strategy that had at one point included the notion of not applying any music to the film at all. The composer, along with a team of ghostwriters, handled A Quiet Place by providing occasional music of a highly disheartening nature, the melodies intentionally performed under duress and manipulation for the reason of suggesting that the characters had forgotten what music had sounded like in the first place. And, of course, there's the whole dystopic element that always seems treated with dissonance in film music anyway.
