Krasinski, who also directed, now exists at the midpoint between Ben Affleck and Mel Gibson. A Quiet Place has a Shyamalanian quality but is less personal and clunky, more generic and crowd-pleasing. . . . A Quiet Place may be reactionary, but it only wants to be entertainment, the same way Affleck and Gibson movies do.
