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.
Great movie. Scary, campy, funny. Bill Hader was great.
A movie that promises a good time then sprays seltzer in your face. This was terrible!
I am a huge Stephen King fan, I’ve read every book, this movie did not disappoint. Well done special-effects, stuck with the original story, likable characters.
Too long by far but some good scares. Follows the book so if you like that you'll like this film. Good wrap up to the first movie. I'd totally watch again!
Repetitive, overlong, interminable, redundant, unscary. Chastain radiates ice and bad vibes.
Do not get how anyone could give this movie 5 stars.The story was so ridicules, poorly directed and way too long.
A heart wrenching tale of how childhood trauma lasts a lifetime and the struggle of adults to overcome it. Pennywise is a great manifestation of the evil such trauma does to children and how coming together to fight against him can hopefully lead to more "normal" lives. Not as scary as the first one and it could have lost about 20 minutes but definitely a creepy - and ultimately uplifting - movie. Great turns from the actors with Bill Hader shining - he's fantastic! Recommended for those who are fans of the book and for those looking to find something with meaning at the theatres.
Wow! Scary, creepy, original, well done! A REAL horror movie. Loved it
Even in an old girlie magazine King was interviewed about his upcoming book. His own view on the story ... I call it IT but I should have called it S**T! Now if King himself hates his own book do U really think the movie will be good. Those 5 starers do not have a mind of their own. If they enjoyed IT more power to them however they will be spending their money bucks on inferior movies.
I loved this movie just as much as the first, the battle with pennywises at the end was visually stunning and amazing. Although if you haven't seen the first movie yet, I recommend you see that first cuz there are times when it goes into flashbacks to events that happened in the first movie that will be hard for you to understand if you haven't seen that yet. I had seen the first one, but there were some people beside me in the theatre who hadn't seen the first one. And also, gay kisses are not something to be grossed out by, like some people in the audience at the screening i went to were.
I gave this a One Star rating only because no stars wasn't an option. Simply put this was the stupidest movie I have seen in a LONG time, and it's the first movie I've seen in my life that I've walked out on before the finish (and I wasn't the only one to do so.) There was nothing at all scary about it, the story line was a jumble and there was no redeeming quality with any of the characters. I didn't care if any of them lived or died. The whole thing was just an awful boring mess. I had thought that with Bill Hader and James McAvoy in the cast there might be some hope, but I was wrong.
Very well done just loved it and the fact that king himself makes an appearance is just the icing on the cake
An excellent follow up the the first film. Much better than the miniseries Part 2. I enjoyed this re-imagined ending and the funny cameo from Steven King. Worth seeing in the theater.
For a second part, this isn't all bad. It did not live up to what i thought IT was going to be like, but overall this was a good movie. Don't worry about other people's reviews. Form your own opinion.
A real drag. It went on forever, and was about as scary as NIGHT OF THE LEPUS. Clowns aren't scary, and people who are afraid of them are wimps.
I thought it was pretty good would like to watch it again.
Good sequel i liked how it went back and forth to when they were kids to present day made you catch on to what happening in the movie now its a go see if you liked the first one . Thought this was better
This movie was long boring as hell. Any one that says it is a great movie has never seen what a REAL good movie is. Waste of time. Save your money for a Real movie.
Lame, unscary and overlong. A loser, this one. Miss it.
Snooze fest. 3/4 of this movie was filler and very little beef. Relying on not very scary visuals to carry the movie. Lazyman's way of directing.
I thought it was really good. A lot of scary parts. It was really long, could have been shorter. But anything that can hold your attention for that long is a good movie. Anyone that says its was a bad movie is an idiot and probably doesn't like anything. It was fun.
I love it!!! It is the best movie ever!!!!!!
The movie was excellent, don't let any of the other bad reviews by stupid people affect your mind going in. Anyone that gave it 1 star are retarded and wouldn't know what a good movie is if it kicked them in the ass. Do agree with one other review about the homosexuality in the movie, it was not needed to be in this movie and does not have to be in everything we watch. If your that way, good for you, each to their own. Don't need to see it in everything.
Good scares, good acting, the time just flew by!
bad movie...about as scary as an episode of The Munsters
Way way way to long. Some scary parts. But I wouldn’t go again.
Even worse than its lame predecessor, and I didn't think that what possible. Professional downer Jessica Chastain drags things down even farther. What fun she must be to work with.
I had high hopes walking into the theatre for this movie. The scares were definitely consistent, and more dark this time around- the cast contains some of my favourite actors, and they do not disappoint. The movie definitely feels 3 hours long, and I personally think there were plot twists added that were completely unnecessary to the story.
not worth the time or money...too much filler. could have easily been an hour shorter without losing a thing. Not enough Pennywise, as he was the only good thing about the movie. First one was great, this one: extremely disappointing
I thought it was good i will watch it again
it was okay - just okay. First movie WAS better. The kids were still the best thing in it
Not worth your time or your money!! It was worse than the first one??
Good conclusion that talks about the shadow side of people. We are not done with our earlier wounds and we need to grow out of our fears.
Was ok. 1st 1 was waaay better. This 1 had too much story building and not enough pennywise. And of course Hollywood had to add it's homosexual touch to the film which is pointless. Not that I have any problem at all with gays or anyone, it just seems like it's being forced on everyone nowadays. And in my opinion didn't fit the movie, even though they "REALLY" tried to adapt that in.....
So incredibly lame. Stephen King should be embarrassed. Just SO, SO Stupid!!……………….Guru Bob...…...35/100
I loved everything about it
I love it because my favorite actor and singer is in it Finn Wolfhard
Can hardly wait
