A Quiet Place was one of the biggest and most pleasant surprises in films in recent memory. Who would have thought that Jim from The Office (John Krasinski) would end up directing such a smart and tense movie?

Now a sequel, A Quiet Place Part II, is just around the corner, and has already been screened for critics. Judging from these early reactions, Krasinski has once again surpassed expectations and delivered a very strong follow-up.

Here are what some journalists have said about the movie:

"The use of sound in #AQuietPlace Part 2 is still so vital," writes ComicBook's Chris Killian. "In what could easily have been a retread, @johnkrasinski finds unbelievably creative ways to keep the movie's niche from getting stale. The entire cast is fantastic and it's riveting from top to bottom."

Collider's Steven Weintraub tweeted: "#AQuietPlacePartII is a great sequel that expands the world. Had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Movie is an hour and 45 minutes and when it ended wanted more. Is it too early to talk about #AQuietPlace3?"

IndieWire's Kate Erbland added: "A QUIET PLACE PART II: A worthy, world-expanding followup that builds on the original and finds its own thrills, chills, and emotions in the process. Audiences should still be banned from eating crunchy snacks during any and all screenings."

"A QUIET PLACE PART II is 'Tension: The Movie'," Uproxx's Mike Ryan stated. "I have a stomach ache now from how tense this movie is. (Also, this turned out to be a surprisingly great Cillian Murphy movie.)"
