My Opinion : Chapter 2 is the sequel to the 2017 remake of the original It film which was adapted from Stephen King’s mystery/horror arguable magnum opus of the very same name. The story is simple we come back to our original characters after 27 years where they all need to team up again to stop the child eating nightmare inducing clown Pennywise once and for good. To begin with the the performances are all good; Bill Skarsgård is a force to be reckoned with as he continues on performing the killer clown masterfully. Bill Hader plays the Richie splendidly and retains the humour and quirkiness that made him so fun the first time around. The diner sequence is very well written with hilarious jokes that are exactly the type of jokes they’d pull off in a real life conversation and honestly scenes like that saved the film from being a flop. The cinematography is alright and finally, well, thats it. Other then that the movies downright mediocre. Everything is too predictable which is a massive downer of a flaw to have in a horror movie where fear of the unknown is what truly scares the viewer. Relying on the classic jump-scares and slightly cheesy monster effects most of the time (there are two very well accomplished scenes without the jump-scare value). There isn’t much emotion in what they do and realism just peaces out at the end its pretty funny actually. Theres nothing remarkable about this secondary entry. Its far too long for what its worth, most of the magic from the first one is gone. Pennywise isn’t as scary, theres not much to talk about. The themes aren’t even clear either. Like I said, saved by honorable performances and a couple well directed, well written scenes in this nearly three hour average movie with nothing fresh to add to a table filled with hollywood shite. 5.1/10
