This movie was a nightmare, but in no way scary
November 21, 2019
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.

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

IT: Chapter Two traded frights for humor, which is a big disappointment for fans of the 2017 film who are expecting an elevated experience with more nightmares.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

One of the curious things that becomes apparent early on [...] is that this portion of the story is served far worse by the splitting of the timelines than its predecessor.
September 3, 2019
It Chapter Two loses its charm and mystery from the first film, and what we're left with is a horror film that feels more like a comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.

"It 2: At Least There's No Sewer Orgy" is a start-to-finish misfire, from its insensitive opening to an ending that would make Peter Jackson give the "wrap it up" signal.

Goes off the rails in the second half, featuring a loud, garish extended climax that's so bathed in CGI effects that it becomes numbing, an unpleasant visual assault rather than than a creepy funhouse.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

The difference between the potential of this sequel and the end result, is staggeringly disappointing.

Character development is attempted but unfortunately never reaches a level that evokes true emotion.

Chapter Two struggles to maintain a taut narrative and its scares end up feeling repetitive.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
September 6, 2019
The special effects are so frequent and over the top that they begin to lose their effectiveness. The lighting or lack thereof on Pennywise's entrances and exits help set a scary tone, but not enough.
September 5, 2019
The whole thing is an overlong, jumbled, unenjoyable mess and the few flashbacks from the first movie only serve to highlight how empty this one feels. I have a new answer when someone asks me what the worst horror movie sequel is.
September 9, 2019
Sadly, though afforded double the budget, It Chapter Two provides half of the scares of the first installment. This clown's makeup is wearing off, fast.

I'm sorry to pop your balloon, but "It Chapter Two"is a mess.
September 9, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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.

...See It Chapter Two to fill your time.

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.
