It sucked. Hollow and shallow. Artificial scares. The problem lies with the source material. King's bloated and tiresome tome just isn't a good story.
Made for TV movie. Again Steven King doesn’t know how to end a movie or a book. The character development was rushed and it seemed forced. The sexual tension between characters was very stiff and unnatural.
Great show better than original
Is one of the worst movies I've ever watched. I couldn't tell if was wanting to be a scary movie or a horror spoof. The story was all over the place and didn't make any sense. If I'd paid to watch this movie I would have been some upset. Garbage. This is first time I've written a review I was so disappointed
Loved this movie. It completes the series and is better than the original version.
This movie sucked. How pathetic do you have to be to find this scary? Clowns aren't frightening, they are merely annoying. If you are actually scared of a children's entertainer then you probably find Sesame Street scary too.
Bad adaptation of a bad novel from a bad writer. Bad day all around. Chastain should shut up and make everyone sandwiches.
I hadn't seen the first one, bought into the hype and was really disappointed that rather then being a horror movie in the vein of Halloween etc instead this is a 'scary' movie for kids.
What A Fun Ride
This movie was a fantastic conclusion to Stephen King's classic and unsurpassed novel . The casting was phenomenal , the lines were well - delivered and ripped out your heart as well as made you shriek with both fear and delight , and gave the viewers a perfect balance between humor and horror . 10 / 10 , will definitely be seeing again .
Fantastic conclusion to Stephen King's classic story of a supernatural killer clown. I jumped & laughed & shrieked & giggled. Scary movies don't usually frighten me but this one made me jump in places unexpected. The adult actors taking over the mantle of the story from the previous chapter's kids were superb. Many of whom were unknown to me. Can't wait to see it again!
As good as first IT or even better
Contrary to what some other reviews state, we enjoyed the first 3/4 of the movie. There was an interesting tension that promised an interesting ending. Alas, the last part of the movie was silly and overbaked.
I love this movie! Its worth experiencing on the big screen.
When people run for the exits before the film even finishes. It’s that bad.
Person saying can't wait for chapter 3, chapter 3 isn't guaranteed, the book is only 2 parts, Andy Muschetti has expressed intrest in making a chapter 3, but he is busy in doing a It chapter 1 and 2 supercut, and has also been signed on for multiple other projects.
Incredibly lame. Miss it.
I loved yhe movie
Not scary. The first movie was so much better. The cast was OK.
Not too scary- no clowns trying to get you in the shower at school.
The clown was scary.
2019's scariest movie! Can't wait for Chapter Three!
I think the movie was ok but they definitely should not little 8 year old's in to a movie like this it's a bit past there level right now!!!! Shame on you manager!
Balloon animals are scarier than this crap.
it is a good movie
Wretched. Hollywood has forgotten how to do horror right.
This movie gave more laughs through its terrible failure to frighten the audience than any real terror; only achieving any real fear with cheap jump scares.
people giving this movie lower then 3 stars are lying.
An interminable infuriating bore.
Was it perfect ? No. Was it a really good movie? Yes ! Why are people giving this a bad review because the THEATRE let in kids? That has NOTHING to do with the movie !! Going to see this movie is definitely worth a night out !
I tried not to compare it to the top notch TV mini series that was suspenseful and haunting, truer to the book. The first movie was just okay but this second chapter mostly gives you tons of gore with lots of profanity that adds nothing to the story. It dissolves into another run of the mill 'B' horror movie. It did have its moments making me jump but could have finished in two hours instead of three repeating same stuff.
Wow , I totally agree with the person below...so many kids in the milton theatre are being admitted to adult movies, This is wrong and I am thinking illegal...Why should adults put up after paying for adult movies with kids ...love kids , have 3 but there is a time and place
Movie sucked ...I had 3 kids 3 - 8 years old behind me 2 were crying from fear ...REALLY...I thought this theater would be responsible enough to respect adults trying to watch a movie...This Milton theater has a reputation for letting kids into adult movies...SHAME on the Manager...I can see why many don't go here...
Lousy excuse for horror. Not just boring but infuriating.
Good movie, however it sure didn't need to be so long.
The giant spider was amazing and brought back fond memories of the mini-series.
Nice to see Port Hope again in the 2nd movie. However the first one with Tim Curry was much better than the the two violent remakes
I have to admit, Chapter 1 was much better. This was not a bad movie but it was so dependent on gore and shock rather than the delicious build up of tension. It followed the story line pretty faithfully, but how do you actually get bored in a movie? I found myself looking at my watch and thinking "jeez another hour left?". Sadly I have to say I was disappointed. Now that being said, I will look forward to watching it on TV..... where I can get up and move about while the movie is grinding on.....Stephen King's looking a bit frail?
This movie Should specify This is Horrible language all the threw the movie. NOT GOOD UNLESS YOU LIKE TRASH!!!!
If you've read the book or watched the television mini-series you already know what's coming. A disappointment.
I liked the first chapter of IT better. I am glad they interwove the young characters with the adults.
Worst movie of the year, flush it🤣
Boring. It put me to sleep faster than Cosby.
Awesome! Better then the first one!
Awesome movie!! Scary, funny and gross! Great ending.
I was waiting so long to watch this movie. I love all of stephen kings movies and I never get bored. i kind of thought there was a lot of twisted and disgusting scenes in it and a lot of blood and gore but I love you pennywise and you are the best in the movie but I wish I saw more of you though. i loved the ending and the scene at the carnival and when it showed how it was created and where it came from.
Good movie, able to keep you engaged throughout the whole thing, and funny overall. I think I’d say It chapter 1 was slightly better.
