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.

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.

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.

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.
September 25, 2019
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

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.

An epic on the scale of modern comic book movies, It Chapter Two is a big deal for the horror genre. While not flawless, there's just so much to love being back with the Losers and Pennywise
September 19, 2019
IT Chapter Two has a lot going on in it- maybe too much. Pennywise is still pretty creepy, and there is compelling emotional depth, but the movie would have benefited from being 20 to 30 minutes shorter.

For the most part, it's time well-spent in the company of both the adult ensemble and their younger counterparts.

It delivers on what a lot of people want from a sequel like this.

IT Chapter Two may be a little drawn out (to a certain degree) but is a very fitting end to what has become one of the most polarizing horror franchises in recent history.
September 17, 2019
The film is impeccably cast and the scale is massive. However, because of a far too repetitious middle act, it doesn't fully live up to the original.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
September 15, 2019
IT Chapter Two is a bigger, bolder and more chilling outing that delves much deeper into the horror aspects of the source material.
