WHAT I LIKE?

IT Chapter Two pays homage to its well-loved young cast and gave justice to their older versions. What I like about the movie is that it gave so much nostalgia by infusing the present scenes with scenes from the first movie. I just loved the young characters who played on the first IT. They were just adorable to watch on-screen. Compared with the first film, this film tackles several sensitive issues like Bullying & Discrimination. The movie is a bit heavy to begin with. Acting-wise, this movie really nailed it. I am really impressed with how both the young & the old characters gave their best performances in most scenes. I also loved how they transformed Derry into the modern times. At least, the movie still give some frightening feels of Pennywise and a heartwarming ending for the Losers’ Club.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

IT Chapter Two seems so long and tiring to watch. Aside from that its heavier in terms of plot and surrounding issues, the whole movie is quite disengaging and unimaginative. It is also not as scary and disturbing as the first movie. I find the last installment to be disappointing too in terms of character development and plot succession. If your expectations are high, you will really be disappointed with IT Chapter Two. Some scenes were dragged too much making the whole film like bloated.
