It Chapter 2 is a thrilling which will keep you interested from beginning to end. It follows the losers club, (consisting of, Bill Denbrough, Ben Hanscom, Mike Hanlon, Richie Tozier, Beverly Marsh and formerly Stan Uris, and Eddie Kaspbrak), now all grown up, as they face their fears again in their second journey against the clown Pennywise in their hometown Derry, Maryland. The second chapter is set 27 years after the original, in the first film, it is said that every 27 years the clown will come back for vengeance. The losers club thought they got rid of him but were in for an unexpected turn of events.
The film starts out following the mysterious murders of a townspeople. Mike, the only member of the losers club left in Derry, knows what happens and gathers the old friends back together. After reliving their memories, they set out to stop Pennywise once again. Throughout the movie the viewer is kept interested with the constant fear of what will unfold. After all is done, Pennywise is finally defeated and the town is safe.
The sequel to 2017s It Chapter 1 was welcomed with a plentiful amount of mixed reviews. Some thought it lived up to the wait and brought back a compelling storyline in a new way while others thought it was repetitive with unrealistic effects. Personally, having loved the first movie, I enjoyed the film because of how it followed the kids as they’re now older and have to relive the thing that changed their lives entirely.
“Because there was so much happening at once it was a lot to take in, it was really funny and there were a lot of twists but my only problem would be that the ending was pretty much the same as the first one.” said Ayden Porter (12)
I would overall give this movie an 8/10 and would definitely recommend to go see it.
