The decision to make the film more about the characters was a wise one, but can bog down the film, based on just how many characters it needs to get to.

At close to three hours It Chapter Two is absurdly overlong, but on balance, mostly because of the excellent cast, it's a fairly entertaining saga. What the movie isn't, or at least wasn't for me, is seriously scary.

In spite of the bloat, there are some decent scares, and Hader almost makes Chapter Two watching on his own.

It doesn't really hold together as a movie, but if you're invested in It, you'll probably dig It Chapter Two, even though it's really long and a bit of a slog in places.

Fans of the book should be pleased as it captures the emotional weight, horror, and the terror of childhood trauma and how it manifests into adulthood.

As the ballyhooed wrap-up to a collective five-hour epic, It: Chapter Two feels rushed in a way that's frankly perplexing given how much time is spent on the slow burn for the first two thirds.

There are a great many moments and sequences scattered across "It Chapter Two." On the other hand, audiences might take issue with there being so many.

Chapter Two struggles to maintain a taut narrative and its scares end up feeling repetitive.

It: Chapter Two fails to treat trauma with any nuance or care, leaving its victimized characters high and dry.

If perhaps it isn't nearly as daring as King's novel, capturing the tone and emotional essence goes a long way towards making this study on fear and trembling effectively entertaining.

A unique entry in horror movie canon, due to its depiction of love and loyalty as the ultimate weapon against the monster of hate and fear.

They did an awesome job, pairing these two movies together. The character development was really good over time. It was a little long, though...

A great companion piece to the first one. At the end of the day, this can be broken down to a whole long mini-series.

The second chapter fails again. The TV adaptation didn't work. Now it fails to do so with unnecessary flashbacks and a dependence on visual effects. [Full review in Spanish].

For all its rough edges, IT: Chapter Two is largely rewarding.

has enough going for it that it doesn't quite feel like a disappointment, but neither does it fully recreate the first film's gripping action and rich emotional texture

It Chapter Two is never cutesy or self-congratulatory; its relentless pace gives way to a surprisingly moving finale and a real sense of loss.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

Trimming the adults' often soppy individual narratives to focus on their more interesting dynamic as a group might have mitigated some of the numbness that sets in from predictability.
September 20, 2019
It's about self-empowerment rising to defeat the self-doubt and self-loathing spawned from vicious external sources that were often supposed to be their protectors.
