Critics Corner - It Chapter Two

Starring: Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Bill Hader

Rated: R

Runtime: 2 Hours 49 Minutes

3/4

            A group of adults are reminded of an oath they swore as children, to come back to their home town and fight a recurring evil that preys on innocent victims. Feeding on their fears as well as their flesh.

 

            It Chapter Two, earns three out of five, Cheeky Knife Monkeys. The story meanders along at a measured pace and echoes, It Chapter One, in several ways except with more finality. The acting is well done with the kids coming back to add to their performance value. The special effects fit perfectly with psionic attacks and psychotic slashers.

 

            This is not a great movie, but it is an entertaining one. Not a waste of money if you catch the early showing for $6.75. Stephen King, fans will not be disappointed or maybe they will, who knows what goes on in their twisted minds?
