The filmmakers made the change in the story worse by indulging in every storytelling whim they wanted, whether it was warranted or not.

Just don't expect to have anything to actually care about.

As fun as it is to see the talented kids back on their bikes for certain scenes of It Chapter Two, the movie is an object lesson in the trickiness of portraying youthful friendships and then translating them into adult roles.

Every time [It Chapter Two] has an interesting choice to make, it makes the wrong one

It's a bit episodic and bloated, but overall it works as a fitting conclusion to the story.

The movie's biggest mistake is its reliance on gore at the expense of narrative clarity. Far too little is said about Pennywise's background, origin or purpose. It's hinted at, but never fleshed out as to why he does what he does or for what reason.

It: Chapter Two isn't freaky enough, or funny enough, and even after spending five hours with this story, it doesn't make us care about the characters enough.

If you're expecting It: Chapter Two to be bloodier and gorier and more adult, you won't be disappointed. Chapter One dealt with childhood trauma and loss, Chapter Two zeros in on that unresolved trauma.

Kids may be a bit smarter in 2016 and their demons, both internal and external, may be a bit more complex, but a good creepy clown clearly still evokes frights.

There's little growth here and a curious lack of stakes. For a movie about standing up to fatalism, Chapter Two wallows in it.

A perfect casting can't defeat the curse of a repetitive narrative and an overzealous need for detail.

The bad news is this movie's terrible, the good news is it's SO entertaining.
