Author Review

Peter Debruge
"An elaborate fun-house horror movie that springs pop-up gimmicks and boogie-boogie scares steadily enough to excuse its been-there story and self-important 169-minute running time.  NEU
United StatesUnited States M
Griffin Schiller
The Playlist
"The journey isn’t as tight or as focused as ‘Chapter One’ but Muschietti manages to successfully close the book on the Losers’ Club with his frightening and emotional film."  POS

John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
"Less fun (...) [It] puts excellent thesps in the parts but winds up feeling much less satisfying."  NEU

A. O. Scott
The New York Times
"[It] drags more than it jumps, wearing out its premise and possibly also your patience as it lumbers toward the final showdown (...) Along the way there is some fun (...) to be found."  NEU

Brian Truitt
USA Today
"[It] packs enough monsters and scares in its 2 hours and 45 minutes to satiate gore hounds. It’s also an ambitious, thought-provoking work that aims for more [than the original] (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 4)"  POS

William Bibbiani
Bloody Disgusting
"It’s easy to watch and enjoy it as a fright flick. It’s just harder to connect with the adult versions of these characters than it should be, and it’s harder to take this story seriously than it was before (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  NEU
United StatesUnited States M
Richard Roeper
Chicago Sun-Times
"A movie with enough scare power to tap you on your subconscious just before you fall asleep tonight (...) Rating: ★★★ (out of four)"  POS
United StatesUnited States F
Katie Rife
AV Club
"[It] isn’t an abject failure by any means; it has some funny jokes, a couple of really good performances (...) and pleasing cinematography. But when it comes down to it, 'It Chapter Two' just isn’t all that scary."  NEU
United StatesUnited States M
Johnny Oleksinski
New York Post
"Returning to your hometown is more terrifying than any CGI corpse (...) A very fine follow-up to the most successful horror film ever (...) Rating: ★★★ (out of 4)"  POS

Kate Erbland
"Andy Muschietti's much-anticipated sequel boasts another flawless cast, but a meandering script and played-out scares keep it from rising to the top"  NEU
United StatesUnited States M
Joshua Rothkopf
Time Out
"The hype is justified: It: Chapter Two improves on its predecessor in nearly every way (...) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS
United KingdomUnited Kingdom M
Alex Godfrey
"A psychologically merciless sequel, everything here is as it should be: deeper, scarier, funnier. Muschietti in particular has stepped up (...) It is obscenely entertaining (…) Rating: ★★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Peter Bradshaw
The Guardian
"The truly scary thing about this painfully long horror show is the possibility of a third movie (…) Rating: ★★ (out of 5)"  NEG
