Laden with underwhelming effects, a half-baked script, and surprisingly flat performances (Save Messrs. Hader and Ransone), IT: CHAPTER 2's too-long sequel fails to deliver any of the first film's surreal, genuinely creepy, under-the-skin scares
September 15, 2019
An epic-length but novella-deep exercise in mild, jokey horror.

It's a mess.

When you've seen one toothy, slobbering demon, you've seen 'em all -- the fact that one has spider legs while another sports saggy breasts while yet another has a generous Gene-Simmons-in-KISS tongue ultimately doesn't make any difference.

Basically a three hour version of the first film but the only change is the characters are adults and less charming. Not really worth a sequel.

It Chapter Two is literally a joke. [Full Review in Spanish]
September 12, 2019
There's a sense of rushed, dutiful, and often uninspired box-checking that saps the film's purportedly phantasmagorical sequences of their potency.

Chapter 2 can only be described as too messy until it gets too organized and then goes back to the worst mess I can imagine.

What should feel like a slowly gathering evil that one cannot forestall arrives with the inevitability of a mandatory sequel.

I'm sorry to report that these adult Losers never really come together, despite great turns by Hader and a scene-stealing James Ransone as Eddie.

Well Steve... the good news is; now that you tried, a miniseries tried and a movie tried, it's pretty clear: It wasn't just you - NO ONE can figure out a good ending for this one.

Went to "It 2" wanting to be scared silly. They left out the scared and went for the silly. Too much time clowning around and not with THE CLOWN.

As these set-pieces could be put in any order, the film feels more like a series of randomly assembled shorts than a coherent feature film.
September 10, 2019
I felt sorry for these actors, except for Hader, who emerges unscathed by injecting some badly needed comic relief.
September 10, 2019
This second part is simply far less captivating, is in no rush to get anywhere, takes an incredibly long time to get to the point, and ultimately doesn't really do much of anything on its way there.

Clearly, Muschietti had a long list of things he wanted to do and tackle in It Chapter Two - and he did all of it. Unfortunately, the movie didn't need most of it.
September 10, 2019
I am confounded how "It" built so brilliantly on anticipation and fear, but the sequel opts to rely on so many cheap jump scares and telegraphed moments.

Not unlike the town in which it's set, Muschietti's It only sees what it wants to.
September 9, 2019
A rocky horror show indeed.

Andy Muschietti has assembled a terrific cast to battle Pennywise in the present day but a muddled and meandering plot bogs the follow-up down and stops It: Chapter 2 from being the essential, epic conclusion fans hoped for.
