“ It is scary enough that will get you gripping the edge of your seat.
“ It started with yawning, and was quickly followed by nodding, and then snoring...
“ Way too long, not scary at all and bad cgi.
“ I wouldn't call it a horror movie, and despite that, I still enjoyed it.
“ Not saying the first one was a masterpiece, but it was definitely entertaining.
“ With much anticipation, I awaited the release of Chapter 2, where on more than one occasion I wanted to walk out of the theater.
“ It's so boring and predictable to watch.
“Conclusion:IT: Chapter Two is an enjoyable movie even if your 2 hours and 50 minutes feel too much.
“ They were unimaginative and uninspiring, she was emotionally blank and distant, especially in scenes with Ryan (he only segment where she should not have been) and Mcavoy simply had a busy year and I guess this movie was the last in line.
“ 3 Hours of Disappointment .
“ Contrived dialogue.
“ But I really enjoyed it!
“ However, he should have been able to come up with creative sequences to deliver a different level of entertainment, especially during the tiresome second act.
“ It's sort of all over the place, whereas the first film had a strong foundation of a coming of age horror film.
“ Ridiculously over-long, boring and lacking plot and character development...
“ which can be thrilling, and sometimes jarring for those who'd like a bit more substance with their screams.
“ But the movie falls into a predictable and tiresome formula: character is alone, they hear a voice, they proceed to an isolated area, the music swells enough to make my ears hurt, cue jump scare, character runs away, end scene.
“ If you're reading this and haven't seen it, don't waste your money.
“The week of release reviews were split, some enjoyed it while others left disappointed.
“ FYI, loud music, booming sound effects, and an over abundance of CGI aren't chilling, just loud and predictable.
“ 90% of the movies it was so boring, first IT it was better...
“ Started with 2 hours of backstory that felt more like an extended addition of the first movie or a reunion episode of a sitcom rather than a thrilling horror movie.
“ It's an endless ride with predictable jump-scares and incomprehensible intercuts that leads to an unsatisfying climax.
“ Cheap sound effects, predictable scenes and regular talking with a mix of things that didn't make sense took over the movie.
“ Super predictable and cliché.
“ Boring for moments.
“ Devotees of the novel may be discouraged by some of the significant changes, and while it is difficult to maintain a consistent level of fear and suspense with the lengthy running time, it's still gripping and colorful, with some truly eerie moments, great dialogue, and a wonderful sense of humor, thanks largely to the work of Ransone and especially Hader, whose witty banter is a definite highpoint.
“ The movie was longer than it needed to be, but was entertaining in some parts, that's why I gave it a 6, with good jump scares.
“ This film is far too long with many scenes that just felt regurgitated from chapter 1.
“ Honestly the worst movie I've seen this year or even in the last 5 years
“ The editing is terrible, the movie drags and drags and is so slow and boring.
“ One of the few times I wanted to get up and leave the cinema, very bored, never worried or scared, and the end totally stupid.
“So dont waste your time, Rate -0/10.
“ It was about an hour of unnecessary drawn out scenes.
“ The movie was so predictable that I could say what was going to happen right before it did.
“ This was probably the worst movie I've ever seen .
“ This one is just a waste of time
“ It was so unnecessarily dragged out and incredibly boring3.
“ Don't waste your time on it
“ I enjoyed It chapter 1, for what it was, a fun, jumpy monster movie.
“ Extremely dragged and utter nonsense .
“ The movie was long and uninteresting.
“ so gets confusing ?
“ Around halfway through, two other people got up and walked out.
“ Very predictable.
“ Worst movie I have watched recently.
“ Also, the scenes with Bev and her dad was very intense, just as in the first movie.
“ Long, Drawn out and Underwhelming .
“ its too long and boring.
“ The first part had an intriguing atmosphere, stunning characters and diversified plot that ended on a bittersweet note.
“ All in all, I wonder if a whole new rewriting of the franchise wouldn't be more compelling.
“ What made the first part of It so frequently entertaining was the chemistry shared between the wily, high-energy kids that the Losers Club comprised.
“ I normally take a day to let the movie sink in before I try to write a review, but i was so bored during the movie that I used the time to start critiquing it while watching.
“ The acting was horrible, the storyline was slow moving and the ending was laughable.
“ This film was way to long and drawn out and I saw many people in the theater start to play on their phones before it was over.
“ It's the worst movie i have ever seen.
“ I was bored midway into it.
“ Disturbingly Entertaining...
“ For me it was way too long and scenes could of been cut , it just felt a bit unbalanced ...
“ Really boring with little to no plot .
“ The action scenes are intense, the characters develop depth and the special effects are spectacular.
“The dynamic is quickly restored and so too the memories begin to awaken and with that, the audience is drawn into the first fantasy horror sequence that will be used in more intense scenes later.
“ While the final battle is entertaining, it's also underwhelming considering the lengthy buildup.
“ I find it really odd that the parts I found most compelling in this film were the scenes where there were little to no horror elements.
“ It was just boring and as a horror fan for 35 years, it was boring and predictable.
“ Hard to say, but he falls way short of doing what he's supposed to, which is to create a gripping horror film.
“ Too dragged out .
“ One of the worst movies I've ever seen.
“ 7) Predictable jump scares where the camera pans back and forth.
“ Great Cure For Insomnia .
“ I bored to death watching this movie.
“ This movie tries to be too many things at once; horror, comedy, coming of age drama, and ultimately fails to be any.
“ So Boring.
“ This movie is incredibly slow and very uninteresting.
“ Long, drawn out sequel with an elementary story line and comedic ending.
“ The bar is set so high for horror movies, but this is still worth watching.
“ I wonder who finds this garbage entertaining.
“ Because there is not time, the movie moves at an insane pace with a very repetitive mold.
“ I have admired in this stunning novelist can create own different world.
“ The duel between The Loser's Club and Pennywise is fascinating to watch and feels like a reward after a stuttering start.
“ Movie becomes boring in some parts.
“ Pennywise is sadly predictable this time around and most of the monsters are more cartoon-like funny than scary.
“ Well it's a good thing somewhat, but a little boring.
“ Wasn't the fact that Mike was the literal lighthouse in the sea, and the fact that Stanley was just a terrified man, not make the books, not only more realistic, but more enjoyable.
“ The worst movie I have ever seen .
“ Don't waste your time and money .
“ I agree that the movie FEELS long, but I disagree that the runtime is too long.
“ I think the movie is very entertaining for what it brings.
“ While the first film had some genuinely horrifying and unexpected moments, this one seemed to tread on the borders of the phantasmagorical with a make it up as you go sensibility.
“ Teach Grant portrays an aged and insane version of the bully from the previous It, and Xavier Dolan has a decidedly unexpected cameo.
“ A lot of scenes just dragged on and took way too long, Bill reaching for Georgie in the sewer e.
“The bad: The excellent actors were wasted on a story that tried way too hard to be a teenage bullying lesson wit a tiresome number of failed gotcha scenes.
“ Felt immersed into the movie the entire time between the great cast and good storyline execution this second chapter wrapped up IT well.
“Despite being uneven and needlessly long, IT: Chapter 2 is still entertaining and there's a lot to admire about it.
“ The movie starts out well, but quickly bogs down in disjointed scenes following the individual characters having an encounter with the monster and getting scared, in between unnecessary flashbacks to them getting scared by the monster in their childhoods.
“ Instead of creepy, Pennywise became boring, non scary, and too be honest, I couldn't wait for the film to end.
“ Flawed, but entertaining .
“ I'll have to download a copy and edit out a good 40-50 minutes so that I can have a watchable version of this movie to finish off the enjoyable first chapter.
“ From the stunning and shocking practical effects used for the film's wide variety of monsters to the pleasing cinematography (IT Chapter Two's clever use of Dutch angles in particular really stuck with me) Muschieti (clearly a talented filmmaker, despite this film's failure) has a wonderful visual eye that's fully on display here.
“It's the only figure and the only performance that makes Chapter 2 worth watching.
“ Exciting and very enjoyable .
“Overall this is a true testament to the acting power of children over adults with the only refreshing, truly enjoyable moments is when they are back on screen for short periods of time during this movie.
“ Way Way too boring and everything takes too long to come to a point and feels like torture.
“ Awful, no plot.
“ I will admit that the movie probably is too long.
“ However, the jump scares were not up to a horror movie standerd and fails to provide a genuine scare for the drama - this is because the scares were predictable which gave people a lomg sense of time to prepare for them.
“ From start to finish, IT Chapter Two is completely uninteresting.
“ To start off with the negative - the background story of what Pennywise really, actually, is, is convoluted, cliche and, by the end of the film, doesn't make much sense.
“ Over 2 1/2 hours of boring.
“ The film is worth watching, I believe you should give everything a chance.
“ Worth watching .
“ The first IT was terrifying & Tim Curry as Pennywise was sinister but this version just had me yawning and sighing when I was supposed to be frightened.
“ So anticlimactic, so boring, so stupid, so lame...
“ Waste of time, poor storyline, the creatures were funny not scary
“ totally uninteresting .
“ Despite all the negative aspects of the movie: the duration, the messy editing, the generally uninspired cast, the badly timed jokes and humor etc. It Chapter Two is a highly entertaining movie.
“ Wasted 3 hours of my life.
“ A bland, boring assault on an iconic story.
“ It is boring and very slow and no scene makes sense in terms of intensity.
“ The movie is also way too long.
“ It was unnecessarily dragged out.
“ The only thing that made it worth watching at all is that it had several scenes with the kids from the first remake in it.
“ There are only genuinely scary scenes in the film, the first was the riverbank scene it was edgy it was shocking and brutally violent, the second was the scene underneath the seats at the baseball game it was similar to the opening scene of the first it film and it used pennywise taking advantage of the innocence and cluelessness of a child to lure them away instead of some cheap scare where he would just jump out at them, the third and final was the hall of mirrors scene, this scene builds tension and creates fear within the viewer by showing the helplessness of bill the confusion and terror of the kid and the vicious intentions of pennywise.
“ After that, it becomes repetitive and nothing really happens.
“ Worst movie to watch .
“ But this movie is but an echo of the first chapter, and like many sequels to cult classics, relies on retrospective references to please the fans - nonetheless, this was enjoyable.
“ This movie had the tone of not wanting to take itself seriously and simultaneously wanting to be your standard, cliche drama/horror film.
“ Instead of the horror being a slow burn, it's more of a slow churn as the recycled jump scares quickly lose their minuscule luster and make this already long film feel even longer.
“The Movie Was Quite enjoyable.
“ Pennywise was vulnerable to intense bullying?
“ Waste of time .
“ Three hours of CGI monsters screaming at you in unconnected scenes might be fun depending on your mindset.
“ This movie is somewhat of a bland and substance-less Movie with aspects that fall short.
“ 2 hours of absolutely predictable and boring scenario.
“ A WAY too long parody.
“Not one element of this film holds up to the original, with only 3 Pennywise moments standing out as entertaining parts of the movie, and Bill Hader doing a good job as an older version of Richie, even if his younger counterpart is still the funnier of the 2.
“Overall the film is convoluted and has a repetitive story, although the latter can be forgiven because childhood trauma don't necessarily go away in adulthood.
“ Hader is great, Chastain is gorgeous and intense, McAvoy is the real deal.
“ The story was weak, the CGI was a mess, a really long and boring at times film.
“ It's not a sequel, it's the second part of a whole story which is too long and complex (as is the book) to fit into one continuous film, hence the 3 hr running time.
“ It's one of the most stupid, half predictable (because we saw glimpses of this in the first movie), and anticlimactic ways to end a movie like this.
“ Unfortunately, it fails to be compelling because aside from a brief reintroduction to the characters and where they ended up (the most enjoyable part of the film), the movie doesn't tell us anything about these people we don't already know.
“ Just waste 3 hours of my life.
“ Wry boring and classic I did not like it actually you don't feel it is real it is too naïf and for young people
“ First half very slow.
“ There were many points during the film where I was annoyed, even bored, ready to sleep on my chair, the duration of the film was inexcusable like there were added extra nonsense minutes to it.
“ The scenes from the past are great when they shed light on their present, but boring when they try to include new suspense sequences because we already know they point to nothing.
“ It certainly felt like a 2 hour 50 minute movie, but it was entertaining enough to hold attention.
“ A flip on everything that made Chapter 1 so entertaining...
“ It might bore you if you like a more concise plotline.
“ At the end I was squirming in my seat, bored out of my mind and wishing for all the main characters to just die so that I would be released from this torture.
“ The horror scenes are mixed with comical overtones, the emotional scenes are made worse by mundane dialogues - 'we must stay together', 'if you believe you will kill' or using the nostalgia card far too often, and the comical scenes are far and few between.
“the story line was compelling,the actors were amazing and precise to their younger selfs and people complaining about the length of the movie should know that it would not of been able to fit in all of the different stories and back stories,the movie in my opinion with a cut down Version wouldn't have been worth it as would not have been correct to the book.
“ To add on that, the awkward flashbacks to their younger selves was somewhat annoying & highly repetitive.
“ I don't get why producers dump loads of money on completely passable ideas like these, very bland and unoriginal.
“ 0/1 don't waste your time .
“ Although it has its short comings, I'd still recommend IT chapter two, as it's a fun and enjoyable horror film and is genuinely filled with passion from the filmmakers.
“ I just feel like they deliberately dragged scenes out that didn't need to in order to make the film as long as possible.
“ Sometimes good, sometimes not, often engaging, often not, It Chapter Two closes the story of the Losers Club satisfyingly, although the execution is often sloppy and messy.
“ The first film transcended the genre and created a thrilling and captivating small universe inside of Derry.
“ After that, it just gets stupid and downright boring and at times, painful to watch.
“ My favorite part, personally was the old lady scurrying naked in the hallway, and it demonstrates what's morbidly entertaining about these films.
“ In the end I think this is an enjoyable movie.
“ The very exciting and excellent ending.
“Many of the film's problems are present during the painfully dull second act.
“ Lets just say that the middle part of the movie consists of a lot of rinse and repeat scenes with tons of unnecessary and boring jump scare scenes.
“ The characters, Bill Hader's in particular, were bland at best and infuriating at most, and the predictable attempts at comic relief just irritated me.
“ Tim curry is the only IT dont waste your time .
“ The ending was painfully drawn out so long that I lost interest 10 minutes in.
“Utterly plotless, terrible CGI, awful attempts at 'humour', so very predictable from start to finish and one of the worst endings I've ever seen in a mainstream horror film (so bad that the filmmakers keep alluding to bad endings throughout).
“Adult actors were all good but overall it was about 45 mins too long and ended up becoming boring to watch.
“ fed up with this repulsive, omnipresent, passive propaganda.
“ It is overlong, tonally jarring and many of the repetitive scares are like something from a kids TV show - I'm really surprised more hasn't been written about that.
“ Pointless beginning ending seemed thown together at the last moment.
“ What a waste of time!
“ I do recommend Stephen King and overall horror fans to go see this movie or wait for it to come out on video if you prefer not sitting in the theater that long because it is worth watching.
“waste of money.
“ The ending just dragged on for ages and I was so sick of it that I just wanted the clown to kill them all and get it out of the way.
“ Watch this movie if you want to waste your time .
“ A Disappointing, Boring, Uninspired Sequel .
“ This all dragged out longer than was necessary, as did the entire production.
“ An overly long waste of time.
“ I found the whole love triangle between Bill, Beverly and Ben in chapter one endearing, in this however it's just a boring unneeded distraction from the main story, mainly I think because I couldn't give a hoot about the characters.
“ It isn't creepy, it isn't tense, it's rarely even horrifying because of how predictable it ends up.
“ Fell asleep a few times, its a shame the actors done a really good job.
“The tone of the scenes in the movie switches from inconsistent to confusing.
“ Nothing happens afterwards with her story.
“ Predictable .
“ On the story side, Is too long and disconnected.
“ This movie was good for the first 40 minutes and seemed promising but then it was a downward spiral from there, the whole idea of a ritual made the story seem cliché and predictable along with the horrible CGI and the cringey dialogue, it made my skin crawl out of the cinema leaving my body there in the seat bored out of its mind.
“ Being just under a lengthy three hours, the film packs a fair amount of unnecessary and boring sequences.
“ The actors were either bored or overacting (Bill, Mike, Richie).
“ Too long and drawn out.
“ It was alright not so great, Kind of a let down since the last one was great, it's not worth 3 hours that's for sure, every moment in the movie was either boring or funny, there wasnt a moment of horror in the movie.
“ This is simply a gripping visual display of imagination and fortitude bringing together good & evil within one single conceptual chef-d'oeuvre.
“ Absolute garbage, teenagers may find it entertaining, might.
“ The length was way too long and I was extremely disappointed.
“ Save your money, watch it on Netflix or Amazon Prime someday.
“ Another movie ruines bu political correctness and too much stuff that make it boring...
“ Ok I hate clowns but this movie is well worth the watch it really keeps you on the edge of your seat.
“ Whoever designed the forms Pennwise takes (aside from the ho-hum zombies) needs a serious raise because this film truly has some really effective monsters in comparison to the first.
“ I really enjoyed IT part 1 and Part 2, there was more humour in Part 2 which for me is why I think Part 2 is better.
“ Instead of being whisked away as you'd hope when you enter a theatre, you're dragged along as you lie limp and exhausted.
“I can go on and on about all the things I enjoyed about this film, but this post would get way too long and ruin the movie for who read this before watching it.
“ Entertaining .
“ I found myself bored in parts, entertained by others, a bit fatigued by the end of it.
“ Unfortunately the director is incapable of showing any sort of restraint and the rest of of it is a loud, drawn out mess, absolutely saturated with terrible CGI that ruins any sort of atmosphere by taking the viewer out of the movie.
“The first film was pretty average, but it was bolstered by a great cast that actually had chemistry on screen, this one on the other hand was just an absolute snorefest from start to finish.
“ and it was scary: the desolate locations, the jump scares, the bizarre creature movements and unexpected visuals.
“ I l8ke the first one but this was a waste of time.
“So yeah, go watch it if you're bored.
“ Other than that, there were purely creepy and weird scenes that made many want to cover their eyes in both fear and confusion which is a success.
“ Pretty boring and too much fantasy I'm several scenes, as if the want to imitate Stranger Things most of the time.
“ One of the worst movies i watched to date.
“ Predictable, lazy writing and rubbish ending.
“ I didnt find the first one that scary either but really enjoyed the kids and how it felt like a coming of age story, and again...
“ Every death was a for shock factor and it was a useless gore-fest that drones on.
“ Parts of it (especially the middle portion) were so boring and seemed pointless, making it feel longer.
“ The more they happen, the more predictable and boring they are to watch.
“ Such a shame they couldn't follow on with the same energy as the first, this just left me yawning with too many clichés and irrelevant sub plots to be interesting.
“ Dauberman (for some unknown reason) injects quite a few punchlines and gags throughout the film, and just like the excessive CGI, this is annoyingly distracting and pointless.
“ I still enjoyed it for what it was.
“ Said child dies anticlimactically and the ritual that the film spent so much of its plodding, meaningless runtime ends up failing.
“ Considering all the actors were more than likely forced to act vs a green screen rather than Bill's Pennywise it may explain why the majority of the actors seem to be bored and just reading lines.
“ The acting was pretty good, unfortunately the ending was absolutely a snooze fest at best.
“ 3 hours of nonsense .
“ It: Chapter Two disappoints in continuing the engrossing story of Pennywise the Clown terrorizing the town of Derry.
“ Bored me from the second it started until i eventually couldn't take anymore & walked out.
“ It's overlong and not as good as the first 'IT', but Chapter 2 still manages to be well worth watching.
“ This freaks everyone out and they want all to leave.
“ Sometimes they make sequels and they're just garbage but this was worth the watch I loved it.
“ For the most part, it relies on a repetitive use of very predictable jump-scares and disgust to try and scare its audience.
“ 3 hours in boredom!
“Another problem is that the movie constantly dwells on the past, has a ploddingly repetitive script and re-tells parts of the first film over and over again.
“ Far too long, far too many flashbacks, too much humor in the wrong Moments.
“ The runtime is ridiculous and I dind myself to be so bored I'm writing this review with about an hour of the film left!
“ I AM TELLING YOU SAVE YOURSELF 3 HOURS OF THIS SAD EXCUSE OF A MOVIE BASED ON A BOOK!!!
“ In that sense, the film is a rousing success as the actors manage to ground the insanity around them into something tangible and real.
“ Looks great, but still boring and makes no sense.
“ They tried to explain many things from the past but it became very tedious.
“ Very slow paced, humorless and heavy on jump scares...
“As a horror movie: 3/10 As a coming of age movie: 8.5/10
“ This movie should have been about one hour shorter than it actually is for a more dynamic, entertaining and relevant structure.
“ So, I really enjoyed it and it lived up to it's hype.
“ For me this movie was intense and the length of it only did it a favor in my opinion.
“ It was boring and not worth the money theres nothing else to say.
“ I noticed a few in the cinema got a bit bored midway.
“ Worth watching just to see him!
“ Long, drawn out and not scary.
“ I will admit it does drag a bit in the middle, but that's mostly because the beginning was so fast paced.
“The ending was slow and boring..How do I get my life wasted back?
“ It's simply way better than the first 2 acts which are pure snooze fest, the jokes were completely unnecessary and gratuitous here and made it look like an amateur writing, no offence.
“ It tended to drag, to the point I found myself bored in certain parts.
“ But if i compare with other hit horror movies this it series is by far more entertaining.
“ It's the most predictable and unbalanced movie i think i ever witnessed.
“ I can nearly fall asleep to this if it didn't play funky sounds to *try* to get under your skin.
“But as far as pacing and scenes, it felt slow and fast at the same time.
“ Very very intense.
“ I'm not the type to write a negative review, if I don't like it I don't look but now I've been to the cinema and I really felt the need three times to go, besides, it seemed boring to me and instead of fear, I felt rather nauseated.
“too much CGI, and it went on so long it actually got boring.
“ The cycle monsters got tedious, and the story line was pretty bad.
“Performances aside, the visuals are stunning.
“ I don't want to spoil anything, but it's incredibly repetitive comparing to the first movie.
“ This one was boring and predictable.
“ It's Dull...
“ How does a movie with no story become 3 hours long?
“ It includes gay propaganda and expects true fans to deal with it.
“Now to the negatives:This part also defers very much tonally, where the first one was very fast paced this one takes the time to develop and unfold.
“There were also wayyyy too many jumpscares, and very little plot.
“ This is probably the most intense horror film in size and scope you are ever going to see.
“ To be transparent this was high on my most anticipated films of the year after the first film proved to be a surprisingly, emotionally resent and enjoyable horror film.
“ Thoroughly enjoyed the TV movie and Chapter 1, but left the theater after Ch.
“ Boring, bad acting, too much CGI, and overall not scary.
“ And when they try to be heartwarming it's so overdone and cliché that you keep rolling your eyes at the self help-esque quotes they keep spitting at you.
“ Added more comedy in it felt bit ruin the mood of the presious story .. somehow i felt better with the story as 1st one love that magical feelings blebd with horror.. i think editor did really nice job .. shifting time and space time to time for me honestly its really good movie and i enjoyed IT a lot
“ The cast looked like they were bored every minute of it, being there just for the title of the film and the publicity it had gained.
“ Well the movie was really entertaining & during the 3 hours in the movies, I didn't get bored at all.
“ The story was just too draggy and I was bored half an through.
“ Bad cgi, dragged on, and it felt more like a sci fi than a horror.
“ Of course there was really bad CGI, but it really didn't matter to me, the script was soo intense in terms of focusing more on the characters, the losers group, that it just went on a really different direction than the first film.
“ (Ranking the losers later) + Pennywise is once again so enjoyable to watch, even though he is slightly reduced here, the scenes he is in are very very effective.
“ It is here where Dauberman's script falls into repetitive territory, leading to unimaginative scares and boring, drawn out sequences that slam the film to a grinding halt.
“ SCARY AND ANTAGONISTE: So I'd say it's more scary than the first one, and then there are more jumpscares, not to mention when The little girl wanted it to make her disappear her stain on her face, and then all of a sudden you have 15 seconds of silence and jumpscare intense, there's also the moment when Ben (child) ends up with the Clown in the locker.
“ Very entertaining.
“ With a massive 2hr 50min runtime this film is 45 minuets longer than the original and it feels every bit longer, this is due to the poor pacing of the film as it insists on visiting each characters fear once again for what feels like 20 minutes each, which gets very repetitive, very quickly, it's because of this pacing I found myself disconnected and often checking my watch.
“ Otherwise it was really entertaining.
“ It was too long and a waste of time.
“I wish i could have given it 0, what was good in it was killed by how long and boring it is.
“ This is not to discredit the cast of veteran actors and their younger counterparts who all show their acting chops as well, but the material they had to work with was trying too hard to be compelling and engaging and ending up neither one nor the other.
“ Don't waste your time.
“ It was like there were 5 different endings that were all equally cheesy with unbearable dialogue and outcomes.
“ It did rely heavily on jumpscares that were sometimes predictable.
“ A solid and very entertaining follow up .
“In the end, Chapter Two is an enjoyable film with excellent casting and charismatic actors/actresses.
“ Pointless scenes, weaved into an already chopped narrative, leading to incoherence.
“ Though there are some fun and enjoyable moments thanks to the talented cast, it does not make up for the inconsistencies and lazy story telling.
“ The brutality and pointless nature of the film's beginning homophobic hate crime is horrible to witness.
“ After a final battle (which is entertaining if a bit twee and illogical) there are multiple "final scenes" that go on and on and on and then rather end as a whimper rather than a shout.
“ It was enjoyable to watch, as well.
“ While I wasn't a big fan of the first movie, I still enjoyed it.
“ These scenes will then be followed by one or two of the main cast walking in an unrealistically empty street for way to long, rinse and repeat for the better part of two hours before we get to the big climactic ending (which for obvious reasons I wont get into here).
“ The story is disjointed.
“ The final battle went on for about half an hour and, though I was still excited, it was far too long when that time could have been spent on more character centred scenes.
“ The story literally loses all its steam due to this and makes it feel way too long.
“So a massive fain in my opinion, very bland, unexciting and plain boring.
“ WAY WAY too LONG!.
“ I really had high hopes for this one,they dragged this movie on way to long, by the end I couldn't wait to leave!
“ The extra-long runtime seems to come from attempting to cram every kind of little jump-scare scene, all of which were utterly predictable failures with way too many ghosty variations of the "monster" that made It less and less scary and less clear as a character.
“I left the theater pleased in the end.
“ The first movie, IT, was a great movie; it was full of horror, thrilling scenes, and a slight bit of action.
“ Worst movie in a while .
“ Dull, tiresome, uninventive.
“The running time approaching three hours is too long.
“ A little girl, sat on the bleachers and bored with a school baseball match, is dazzled by a firefly and follows it underneath the seats.
“ That being said it is a richly entertaining and fascinating portrayal that does justice to the majestic novel published in the mid-eighties.
“ Not quite has memorable has the first one, but still entertaining.
“ The story is accurate and compelling.
“ Once I had enough, I walked out.
“ Very disappointed, and it's three hours so just don't waste your time.
“ It just dragged on and on and on and felt like it will never end and I couldn't wait for it to be over.
“ Just as boring as Part 1.
“ To the "Losers" who made this movie, why make it into a coming of age story when only adults are hoing to watch it.
“ Don't waste your money or time...
“ Very boring movie.
“ Chapter One was paced very well, the plot moved swiftly, and it was an engaging experience overall.
“ Where Chapter One was brought to life with heart, passion & honesty which in turn made it soar, Chapter Two is simply dull, meandering & barely manages to float.
“ The movie had everything that a horror movie could possibly have to make it entertaining and a bit scary.
“ All in on boring.
“Overall i was left bored through all of it.
“ The film has stunning and horrifying visual effects, along with an amazing acting performance and even a cameo from Stephen King himself!
“This movie was too long, it dragged at times, and I missed the serious creepy version of it.
“ Its runtime is appropriated having in mind that each character has a personal arc, but only a couple of them are genuinely compelling and entertaining.
“ Likely because I actually enjoyed it, as was mentioned before.
“ I enjoyed it .
“ The film felt like 3 hours and really dragged in places.
“ And while Bill Hader's brilliant and unexpected portrayal of Richie is the stand out for me, the whole cast does a wonderful job as the grown-up Losers.
“ The final scene is entertaining and puts the two character of Ben and Beverly together, a dream that always had since he wrote her that poem.
“ Overall, between its highs and lows, "It Chapter Two" makes for a semi-enjoyable time.
“ Uninspiring and a poor follow-up to last year's very good flick.
“ I should have walked out of this movie after the first hour.
“ The original movie adaption (1990) was a boring mess, the remake also was rather funny than creepy and this one tops the first part of the remakes in its badness.
“ Too much boring dialogue and nothing new here at all.
“ Was so looking forward to this , but expect a game of thrones style ending , bland and boring and predictable....
“ This movie is drawn out with unnecessary scenes of flashbacks for EACH.
“ Finally, it was WAY too long, and sadly, most of the best scenes were the flashback scenes with the kids.
“ Just fine, but a little predictable.
“ It's a brave movie, even if kind of a "bad" one, which is a combo I prefer to safe (boring) "good" movies.
“I would recommend this film because I enjoyed it very much.
“Most of all however, I was bored to tears.
“However i know have to say that the film had very slow pacing in places.
“ The movie had a way of always keeping you on the edge of your chair, which is important for me while I´m watching a scary movie.
“ I was really disappointed, was bored majority of the time in the cinema.
“ Unfortunately, this time around, Pennywise doesn't have that much screentime (such a disappointment), and when it appears, it often looks too CGI-ish, taking away from the gripping performance of its actor.
“ The casting choices were the only thing enjoyable about this movie.
“ I left theater because the level of boredom was unimaginable
“ Worth the watch .
“ This movie has no plot, It makes no sense just bunch of stupid things that they put in that movie that like they just make that movie just because of the first one.
“ It Chapter 2 is a long and drawn out movie with really good performances and plenty of funny moments.
“ I really enjoyed It!
“ The first half is entertaining and creeping with glimpses of Pennywise.
“ What a waste of time.
“ WHY DIDNT YOU SHOW THIS IN THE FIRST MOVIE I HAVE A LIFE KAREN I DONT WANT TO SPEND 3 HOURS OF MY LIFE WATCHING PENNYWISE GETTING BULLIED BY ECCENTRIC CHILDREN.
“ The section that follows each cast member individually was way too long and I felt like it was going to be a long as soon as the first or second actor did their own "journey".
“ Rendering the whole experience dull, and plodding bore.
“In conclusion, It chapter 2 is an uninspired and uninteresting follow up to one of the greatest horror films of the decade with only a few memorable scenes to offer to the story.
“ Thrilling from start to finish.
“ Cliche, not a horror, more if a comedy.
“ Entertaining ...
“ For whatever is retained in the movie, the running time is too long.
“ It depends on if you want to watch a movie thats entertaining from a technical view with great cgi and wacky jumpscares or if you want a deep heartfelt sequel that tells the story in the most optimal way.
“While slightly disappointing, the second half of "IT" is an exciting and heartfelt ending full of heart that is centered around a group of characters impossible not to care for and concludes Stephen King's masterpiece epically, giving fans of the nearly 1,200-page novel what they need to be more than satisfied.
“ The scares are all comprised of the consistently most formulaic jump scares I've ever scene, or big huge monsters crafted with poor CGI, that removes the rare shred of tension and believability the scenes had left.
“ It was boring.
“ Some of the story line was quite cringey and some of the dialogue was soppy and cliche.
“ There are the cast and director with true professional skills they have made an actually entertaining thing.
“ Gets straight into and constantly keeps you on the edge of your seat.
“ Too long, too boring.
“ That just took way too long, we all know what's going to happen, so just let it!
“ Don't listen to what the critics are saying, this movie is amazing and I highly recommend it.
“ I actually fell asleep in the theater.
“ Enjoyable .
“ "IT 2" It's a troublesome film, young director Andy Muschietti tries to follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, but ends up making a redundant, indirect, weak and boring movie, a work that tries to be too grand and gets lost in its own ostracism.
“ CGI is a waste of money if you lack real vision.
“ For the next 30 minutes very slow and sleepy.
“ Disappointing, boring and far too long.
“The cast is phenomenal but Hader and McAvoy shine through, their performances are engaging, emotional, and will draw you in.
“On an overall scale, It: Chapter Two fails to make the most of the strong foundation of the first film, and is an occasionally thrilling & intermittently entertaining follow-up that never unlocks its full potential.
“ Overall I think the movie is great, it could have been excellent if it was re edited, seriously get rid of the jumpscares, some of the jokes, some of the CGI and some of the same boring ''movie'' music, seriously the original one has such a disctintive soundtrack, this one is just so average.
“ But all in all I really enjoyed it, some great scares and the ending felt satisfying.
“ They constantly ruin the suspense of scenes and become tiresome.
“ I found this movie to be long and drawn out, could have been an hour shorter and not just shy of 3 long hours.
“ The worst movie I have ever seen its too long its like Indian movies
“ It's boring, unimaginative and frankly throws shortcoming after shortcoming to the real fans.
“ It felt very repetitive and got a little boring.
“ when a movie is so long you expect to deepen the characters but the long time just made it so boring almost hardly to see...
“I think it's worth the watch.
“ First, there was no story, no character development, no lessons to be learned.
“ 5) Some scenes felt unnecessary including the bleachers and funhouse scenes (I know this contradicts the last point :p) 6) The slow burn ending seems a bit cheesy.
“ IT dragged on for hours.
“ When you're so bored that you start using the time to critique why you don't like the movie....
“ It did not need to be three hours, I literally checked my phone several times because I was so bored and I NEVER do that.
“ Isaiah Mustafah and James Ransone are OK; Jessica Chastain is inexistant compared to Sophia Lillis "light" and nearly each apparition of Bill Hader are boring.
“ Incredibly boring .
“ I couldn't believe in my eyes,people where leaving the cinema,it was the worst movie i've Ever seen,I can't believe it's rated with 7 here,it must be spammed by the creators with good reviews,I can't explain it in any other way
“ I'll watch the original miniseries if I'm bored or really want to see one of the subjectively best performances Tim Curry has given in his entire career of acting.
“ Boring and bad .
“ Watch it if you suffer from insomnia, it will put you to sleep after 5 minutes.
“ I actually fell asleep for 20 minutes.
“ One of the worst movies I've ever paid to see.
“ literally unwatchable.
“ Usually, when people feel bored or not as entertained as they wanted to be, they tend to blame it on the film's runtime, especially if it's over 100 minutes.
“ It captured a good tone, had a compelling story, and interesting character dynamics.
“ Waste of time and money.
“ Boring and my taste in horror movies is now questionable by my boyfriend so THANKS
“ I enjoyed it I loved the cast and it had a great ending.
“ The worst movie ever.
“) we get this way over-complicated story of him being some thousands year old spirit or god knows whatever that I guarantee no one paid attention to because its so boring.
“ Chapter 2 was a bore.
“ The rest is mildly entertaining and provides a very forgettable plot.
“ A huge issue with these flashbacks is that it becomes formulaic.
“ Repetitive and too long .
“ Don't waste your time
“That said, some good jump scares, outstanding effects and an amazing cameo from the Author, make for an entertaining flick.
“ Too bad the last hour was an ending that just dragged on and on and on.
“This is by far the worst movie I have seen in a long time.
“ Unwatchable .
“ It would of been more intense had he stolen the axe from the library, then his character would be intimidating and be important.
“)) came out two years ago I found I really enjoyed it.
“It was entertaining and, although long, didn't really drag.
“ The reveal he withheld information from the group that the American natives died fighting It felt shoehorned and his reasoning contrived.
“ Most stupid & confusing movie EVER .
“ Although I didn't find it scary enough to be a horror movie nor funny enough to be a comedy, so it falls somewhere inbetween, making it a little bit of a confusing experience.
“Anyway apart my gripe about the ending, my Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed IT Part 2....
“It felt like a disjointed connect the dots thing like "lets see what happens to this person next, now this person, oh big surprise its something relating to their childhood phobia" like some sort of kids book.
“Any tension the movie had was destroyed by an unnecessaryamount of comic relief, and it kept doing the same boring, copy-paste jumpscares for the entire second half of the movie.
“ But it was drawn out.
“ The rest will give you more breathing room, but is still entertaining and rounds out well.
“ While the story is intriguing, it's unfortunately muddled by flashbacks, that aside from Richie's and Bev's, come of as redundant, and incredibly repetitive.
“ The movie was really long and boring at times.
“However i have to say the film was very confusing when it came to explain pennywises origin and backstory and also Henry Bowers was a terrible character.
“ I really enjoyed it and it scared the life out of me a lot of times.
“ Also the jump scares were way to predictable, they fool you once and something will pop up from the dark when the camera switches angle.
“ Boring .
“ This movie was way to long and drawn out.
“ Dull and way to long...
“ Boring, generic, riddled with jump scares.
“ Instead of being engaged and interested in the plot you will be bored out of your mind.
“ A lot of humour makes it very entertaining.
“ Complete waste of time, not even worth for closure after the first one.
“ The CGI is mind blowing!
“Once this has all been established (as forcefully and mind-numbingly dull as possible), the characters no longer matter at all except for one-liners regarding their childhood traits.
“ No story.
“ Nearly every Loser is given an amazingly compelling, and satisfying arc, all the while continuing their character from the first with ease.
“5) It's actually entertaining.
“Speaking of which, this part where they all go their separate ways to find their "tokens" is so contrived.
“ Too long, too repetitive, and just plain stupid.
“ And while this is quite predictable to some extent, it still manages to scare and entertain at the same time.
“ The unexpected huge success of It Chapter One has surprised the audience, as it became a blockbuster with more than $700 million Box Office worldwide.
“ The long drawn out ending was completely over the top and self serving.
“boring boring boring
“ A Step Down From the First But Enjoyable to Watch .
“ Worst movie ever .
“ So overall it was a very enjoyable experience, sorry for the length of this post......
“ We all got very disappointed and left the theater after 2 hours before the movie even ends.
“ There was some enjoyable scares in the movie which includes the old woman, the mirrors in the amusement park and the lumber jack statue part other than that the scenes that where meant to be scary just made me wince out of cringe.
“This was a waste of time, and a big let down for having such a great cast.
“ Stories like It have the opportunity to affect terror and long-lasting fear through slow burn scares like the segment above.
“"Chapter Two" struggles to make the adult characters as compelling and emotionally investing as the children.
“ The story had no story.
“ It's hardly effective, and it gets boring staggeringly quick.
“ It's just glossed over) Fortunately, the movies 3rd act is solid and redeems the very slow 2nd act.
“Very disappointing after having the expectations after the first movie set so high, save your money and stream it.
“ Undoubtably 2019's worst movie .
“ Viscious Anti-Gay Propaganda .
“ The second trailer looked intense.
“ Nearly 3 hours of pure trash, the bad one.
“ As well as at the scariest scenes, where unexpected moments happen to be unforgettable.
“ Actors are Superb in this film BUT it is way too long and drawn out .
“ The story line was dragged out, it was repetitive and mostly uninteresting, with the same jumpscares and just what were those zombie thingies?
“ Worst movie I've ever seen McAvoy in .
“ The horror is strong and score is more engaging.
“ I wanted to leave.
“That being said, a lot of the movie had a repetitive tone as each character explored their fears, one by one.
“ The main reason for this is that the story was dragged out way too long and the CGI "Characters" looked completely fake a ridiculous.
“ Too long and boring .
“ The film dragged a lot.
“ Was just a drag went on for far too long to the point where I wanted to up n leave.
“We get one scene of the clown killing the little girl, but it is entirely predictable and more or less a repeat of the scene with the little brother from the first movie.
“ Sooooo pointless.
“ The first one was dope the second one was the worst movie I've ever watched in my life
“ The film definitely did not need to be as long as it was, as many scenes just go on for way too long.
“ This was due to pennywise and more monsters being involved so therefore there was more time to fit jumpscares and more scenes to drag out so you cant expect when the scare is going to happen.
“ He plays his part well and I actually felt emotion, real emotion, when he died, people reading this, it was intense.
“ If you really wanna watch it just wait for it to be released on dvd dont waste your money on such a boring movie especially when compered to the first chapter .
“but mostly, it fails to reach the objectives and makes the movie finally boring.
“ This was the only movie we ever walked out of, with no regrets.
“ Long, boring, not scary, no story .
“ I left the theater half way through the movie.
“ Pennywise's final form was interesting, and the part where Beverly had to swim in blood was entertaining, especially with the appearances of her Father Alvin Marsh and Henry Bowser's, who said to her as a reference to The Shining, "Here's Johnny".
“ Some scenes dragged on for way too long and some didn't feel necessary.
“ There are many other little and bigger things I was annoyed at, but the movie was mostly just bland, like your average C-grade horror movie.
“The main issue however is just that the movie feels confused - what little horror is actually in this movie is severely overshadowed by forced comedic moments (even within these sequences themselves, seriously, when the Deadpool song began playing in what was meant to be a disturbing moment, it felt completely out of place) and fantasy elements, with an unbearable score that reeked or cliché adventure movie.
“ Much more intense than Chapter 1.
“ But it uses its time well, like the first film you feel for the characters, and it draws you in, a most enjoyable supernatural horror.
“The movie's saving grace however are the gripping final thirty minutes.
“ I fell asleep three times...
“ Way too long and drawn out .
“The third aspect of the film which falls short is the plot itself; of course some of the problems here aren't necessarily the director/filmmakers fault as it is a project which is derivative, but with this said the pacing of the film and the way that the film is structured is extremely dull.
“ The editing was terrible where there were too many pointless and long scenes that add no value.
“ The result of this script was a disjointed, choppy movie with a lot of scenes that felt unfinished and scenes that felt unnecessary or just plain confused.
“ Enjoyable .
“ Don't waste your time .
“ This freaks everyone out and they want all to leave.
“ Sadly most of the scares were jump scares and usually predictable - although not always.
“ Here I talk about Henry Bowers and the Silver; both got their screen time, but would have nothing happened had they had been cut from the movie.
“ Too many pointless flash backs made the film drag on.
“ Entertaining .
“Even if you find this film boring at times, it goes without saying that this is once again a stellar cast.
“ The structure is still everybody gets their own scare section which can be repetitive and not that scary.
“ There were laughs in the theater) At the end of the day though go watch the movie and decide for yourself if you think it's good or bad or boring.
“ Please dont waste you're time watching this movie...
“ My final comments will be about the terrible pacing, this film had a lot of story to tell but it did it in such an awful way spending way to long on the eventually pointless hunt and made the 2 hour 43 minute film feel like being on a plane, where you feel trapped and bored for extensive amounts of time.
“ I mean if they had just focused on the characters as adults they would have gotten more done, it would've been a better movie but for some reason making the kids CGI and showing 15 minute formulaic flashbacks that don't do anything for the film that a 2 minute conversation couldn't accomplish is just really damaging for this movie considering that the scenes with the adults were amazing and there was a real connection and comradery between them, which is why it's so disappointing that this film is just made up of flashbacks and very little elements of the adults despite the adults being the stand out part of the whole bloody movie.
“ Despite the CG on some of the kids and the pitching up of their voices (which is pretty weird for them to do), the flashbacks with the younger kids were all enjoyable and added a nice nostalgic feeling.
“ It recreates a few of the moments from the 1990 version, the special effects are fantastic at bringing the sinister demonic images to life, I agree the ending is maybe not as dramatic as it could have been, and some complain it is too long, at almost three hours.
“ Way too long.
“ Don't waste you're time ...
“ Long, boring, not scary at all.
“ 3 hours of my life robbed
“ The end of Pennywise is, unfortunately, just the same as the rest of the ending - bland.
“Some say the movie is too long.
“ Also, there's no real plot: as I suspected, the present day story told independently from the childhood setting is not enough for a movie.
“ Pros: Solid cast, few uninspired performances Compelling group of main characters when they are adults A few diverse, inspired creature designsCons: Cliche sound design No indication if the villain wants to scare or kill his victims in each scene Bully character sucked, way underutilized Killing Pennywise was way easy, cliche and poorly executedBest part: Chinese restaurant reunion Worst part: Pennywise death scene, way underwhelming
“& The movie is too boring & have to wait for tooooooooo long, takes ages to come up to something.
“For me, the episodic middle act felt like binge watching a mediocre horror box set, as each character's back story get played out in a formulaic manner.
“ The drawn out scenes could have been shorten by several minutes.
“ Every single scare in this movie follows the exact same structure, they are all predictable, you know exactly when it's gonna happen and how it's gonna happen.
“" since I could barely wait to leave the theater.
“ It was quite boring and following a methodical pace.
“ Funny, Scary, Intense, sadness and so on.
“ Boring .
“ Lots of jumpscares, all so predictable, I was so bored, I thought: oh please, not another one.
“ It was genuinely funny, and gave us a thrilling experience.
“To get the bad stuff out of the way first, the scares in this movie are mundane at best, noise and loud.
“ This movie had genuinely scary scenes but the before and after is some of the most ridiculously, contrived and drawn out movie making I've seen.
“ The characters as adults were somewhat dry, dumb and dull as adults and much better as young teens.
“ It is a movie that I loved because his scares are very moderate and his touch of comedy was very entertaining.
“Once everyone gathers back in Derry, it becomes a slightly dull series of predictable funhouse horror scenes as each character must return to a place of trauma before meeting back up to fight Pennywise.
“ This is most overrated movie of all of time, he is so boring and playing slowly and nothing story in.
“ I don't mind a long movie, if it's engaging.
“ Holy hell when I saw that the runtime was 3 hours long I thought it was gonna be really slow.
“The movie was too long and, ultimately, very boring.
“ This made the first film enjoyable for a wide audience, the jump scares and the horror was mixed in with childish banter and fun montage sequences (even when the losers club cleans Bev's blood-soaked bathroom the scene makes you feel good); it's a film which is ultimately about friendship and the potential for togetherness to overcome evil.
“ The film was definitely fun and entertaining.
“ The concept was well done and enjoyable to watch.
“ I felt sleep, it was so boring.
“ The worst movie I've seen in a movie theater .
“ The long playtime of the movie was not good either, as the nearly 3 hours of playtime could not be fully completed, so the movie had idle slots that could have been tightened by cutting out unnecessary scenes and this shortening the movie length.
“but this Part 2 is not on par with the 1st part, it's repetitive, way too long and the story is deformed.
“ But the surgery is implied, when we see the boy crawling away from the storm drain with a missing limb, before being dragged back by an alien-like elongated arm.
“ Enjoyable is the word that comes to mind.
“ The story uses jump scares in the most unexpected ways, by making some of the scariest scenes unforgettable.
“ Most of this film consists of heavy dialogue scenes in darkly lit rooms with over the top and often corny lines being delivered in surprisingly engaging ways followed by big CGI horror set pieces that feel rejected from one of the Insidious sequels.
“ Almost 3 hours of overused special effects to compensate for a crappy, and often boring script.
“ The scares, when they arrive, are dull.
“But ultimately it's 3 hours with no real plot.
“ The movie is too long.
“ The story itself is rubbish and, at three hours long, is two and a half hours too long; the half hour worth watching are those scenes with Skarsgard's Pennywise.
“ There are enough jump scares in the movie to make it thrilling.
“ Really enjoyed it and recommend watching it - if you like a good horror movie!
“ First was great second was awful the cgi was silly and was too long it just dragged and dragged
“ It was a bit formulaic, each character hot their respective item, and each was terrorised one by one, it needed more surprises, more shocks.
“ Just Pointless and disturbing ...
“ I fell asleep three times during this nearly three hour movie, once snoring so loud the guy next to me had to wake me up.
“ I thought the film got very repetitive.
“ Soooo Boring!!.
“ His performance as Pennywise is so creepy and entertaining.
“ I could never really lose myself in the IT Chapter Two monster (though I tried) because he seemed so contrived.
“ Worst movie ever .
“ The scare scenes were far too predictable and lost any sense of suspense.
“ Don't waste your time and money.
“ While the budget is a lot more lavish this time around (and that's reflected in the sets, costumes, and visual effects), director Muschietti replaces the more authentic, unexpected scares of the first with frequent, super-loud, in-your-face scares that you can see coming a mile away.
“that's when I got up and walked out.
“Muschietti sins of excessive complacency towards himself and makes a film on the edge of ridicule: I cannot decide where to start from, and trust me it's difficult because in this film there are too many things that are wrong, so much banal and unlikely to arouse laughter among the public.
“ Boring has hell...
“ The problem is, after a successful jump scare, you're adrenaline leaves your body and you become indifferent about what happens next.
“ When they go and find their tokens, essentially the exact same scene happens over and over again but with different characters, none of the scares work, they are predictable and stupid.
“ It's so boring, we've seen it so many times.
“ I mostly enjoyed the first half for what it was but this one was a long boring cgi fest with no story, no substance and no heart.
“ I'm not a big fan of these movies, but they're entertaining and scary, and fun to watch in the theater.
“ It was too predictable, and did not deliver one truly horrifying scene.
“ I also failed to find this film particularly scary, its starts out well with some good jump scares, but the movies scares quickly become predictable and lose their effect, and the role of It or Pennywise felt much larger than in the other film and this greater screen time of the titular character led to his presence on screen lose meaning and fail to invoke the same sort of fear.
“ Absolutely 3 hours of my life I'll never get back again.
“ King's elaborate supernatural writings are always going to be difficult to render in the flesh, but this attempt felt empty and shallow in so many places - a shame, after such a promising first half - much like it's predecessor.
“ It's a movie of moments and a non compelling story, strechted out over a bloated run time.
“The other thing wrong with this movie was that it was just way too long and boring.
“ Excellent casting, good cinematography and a pretty enjoyable final confrontation between Pennywise and the Loser's Club aside, this is a film that could have greatly benefited from a few more cuts.
“ Instead of naming everything that's wrong with this "horror" movie, I will use a single word that best describes this utter snooze fest - boring.
“ It Chapter 2 is slow and boring, clunky, corny, cheap looking, and way too long.
“Don't waste your money going to see this at the cinema.
“ There are also big problems with the script and it is ultimately way too long, unfocussed and grossly sentimental.
“ Dont Waste Your Time .
“ Really good cast let down by this drab.
“ This felt empty, and too much cgi vs showing IT
“ I really enjoyed IT so I was pretty excited about seeing IT Chapter Two...
“ No story and CGI filled .
“ Boring characters.
“ Also IT's background story Is a confusing mess that will most likely give u brain freeze and was plastered in weird cgi and half assedly presented to the audience like a serving of cold takeaway spoiler alert: there is a fkn gigantic 30 minute battle scene which is brain meltingly boring and unoriginal it was like Stephen king meets marvel I honestly wanted quite a few of the characters to die because of their unbelievably cheesy acting throughout this weird Hollywood epic.
“ Jay Ryan's Ben is the former fat kid, now a buff wealthy architect hiding away in his stunning masterpiece, and keeping his human contact to zero.
“ Poorly stitched together story line, uninteresting characters, not at all scary.
“ I didn't seem to be alone in this, as the majority of the audience also appeared bored and disappointed.
“ I left the theater and complained to the man that there was a clown in the movie and he laughed in my face and said I couldn't have my ticket money back.
“ To the extent that a zombie was chauffeuring the grown up Henry - so it makes for a confusion of the world we are in.
“ I wanted to leave around the two hour mark just couldn't do it because I'm cheap.
“ It Chapter 2 is one of the most disappointing films of the year - a confused, amateur, meandering mess that drags it's thin plot out for an unnecessary 2 hours and 50 minutes, with pointless characters, beyond predictable twists, and not to mention, the most cliché, uninspired, and ineffective scares I've seen in a while.
“ How this overly long, disjointed, meandering schlock was ever made is beyond me.
“ Take your old musty closet full of old boring stories throw it out of the window and start over man.
“ While this flashback/flash-forward structure mostly works, and helps the audience to follow certain narrative arcs, it begins to feel tedious after a while.
“ Might still be worth watching.
“ Too many special effects, no story whatsoever .
“ The music was just too loud in the fight scenes apart from one scene in particular which was actually really good sound mixing (confusing, right?
“ I saw the other movie that came out a few years ago and really enjoyed it.
“ There's a lot to love, a lot to shrug at, and a lot to hate, but it manages to be entertaining enough and frequently moving enough to look past a lot of the film's flaws.
“ We watched the 1st part and it was enjoyable, I didn't think it did the book justice, but still, it was an interesting coming of age while defeating demons kind of story.
“ The finding of the tokens was pointless and boring, the ending sucked.
“ Worst movie I've seen in a long, long time.
“ Was the worst movie I've ever ever sat through at the movies.
“ 3 hours of adrenaline .
“ Don't waste your money .
“ I fell asleep .
“ Right where the characters wander off on their own to find out why they've return to the town gets really slow.
“ Worth watching tho
