Movie Review – It Chapter Two
Twenty-seven years after their first encounter with the terrifying Pennywise, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back.
Great, fleshed-out characters, all who have developed in intriguing ways since their last battle with It in Derry 27 years ago.
Seemingly straight to the point at first, then happily more complex. Not perfect execution, but quite the rollercoaster ride.
For the most part, a seamless adventure. There are flashbacks present that I believe should’ve just been in the first movie instead of interrupting the flow of this one.
Okay, no throwing of tomatoes please! I was way overdue for seeing this movie, and when I saw it available on GooglePlay I freaked and immediately started watching it.
This movie was a great ending to the It story! The Losers Club is reunited after 27 long years after they first defeated It, only this time, they have come to destroy it for good.
While I admit that the scares and characters seemed more impactful in part one, there was a lot of great stuff here. The characters stayed true to their core, but had grown in interesting ways.
The plot was pretty similar, but that was a given and I do think the filmmakers kept everything fresh and simplified some things from the original version while complicating other aspects where they thought necessary.
The flashbacks were a little jarring for me here and there, but other than that, this film was amazing! I’ll definitely have to watch both parts in one day sometime.
That’s it for this movie review. How about you? Have you seen this one?
