Michael Sarnoski’s ambitious prequel expands the quietest of cinematic universes.

With the critical and financial success of both A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place Part II, it should come as no surprise that we're getting more. And starting from the very beginning, watching a series of catastrophic events unfold through the eyes of Sam (Lupita Nyong’o), we finally get to experience just exactly how the world went quiet.

Despite the change of scenery and the larger scale that comes with New York City, it's been designed with the same apocalyptic survival horror and classic creature feature elements that it’s predecessors have utilised so well. However, the big city setting offers a number of opportunities we’ve not seen before, namely big action set pieces (with the exception of that great flashback in Part II), more oppressive sequences inside buildings and underground, and more poor humans in extreme danger. And a cat. Because how can you keep a cat quiet?

With a lean cast packing a mighty punch (Nyong’o in typically fine form alongside the similarly excellent Joseph Quinn and Djimon Hounsou), this is a refreshingly straightforward remedy to the many modern sci-fi films that have become far too bloated for their own good.
