IT Chapter Two - Movie Review

IT Chapter Two is a rated R thriller/ mystery movie that is 2 hours and 50 minutes long. It is a spinoff of the 2017 movie, called IT. The movie is about an evil clown, Pennywise, that returns to the town of Derry, Maine 27 years later to terrorize the community again. Members of the Loser’s Club, now adults, also return to the town of Derry to try to defeat Pennywise once and for all. The release date was September 26th, 2019. Some of the main characters include Jessica Castain, Bill Hader, James McAvoy, Jay Ryan, and Bill Skarsgard.

 IT Chapter Two has 62% Rotten Tomatoes, which is not very good. More people liked the IT that came out in 2017, it had 86% Rotten Tomatoes. Overall the ratings were mixed. Most people that did not like IT Chapter Two said it was because the movie was not scary at all and that the plot was confusing. On the other hand, there were a ton of people that said the film was amazing and way scarier than the first IT.

I went to see IT Chapter Two the day after it came out and in my opinion it was more funny than scary. The beginning did not really make sense and the ending was dragged out. I did like the characters and thought they fit their parts. Overall, I did not really like it and would not go see it again, especially because it is 2 hours and 50 minutes long.
