IT Chapter 2 can be a nonstop inciting and action-packed movie for its viewers. Chapter 2 of IT is a mystical horror film. It is a sequel to 2017’s IT. Its heady script keeps fascinating the viewers. Mixed with emotions, thrill, drama, action, comedy and suspense IT Chapter 2 is not a bad option and will probably be delicious for starting your Saturdays with its compelling atmosphere, numerous whispers and tensions palpable which make it a well-balanced creation. Dark aesthetics, special effects and animations are breathtaking. Early featured trailers of the movie have already created a lot of hype around. One of its trailers showing an old lady where she takes a long pause as Jessica inquires her, this scene makes it spine chilling and creepy off course! Some scenes can be nightmares for those who love watching horror movies and it’s a an inclusive package for them.
IT (2017) starts with children of Losers Group which had earlier banded together to destroy an evil clown Pennywise, who used to prey on the children of their small town, Maine and apparently, he was mashed by the Losers Club. Chapter 2 begins with a 27 years later gap, companions of Loser Group have departed their ways, yet once they get to know about some missing from the town, the now grown-up Losers Club are back and united again to fight against the deceptive clown who after 27 years is back to terrorize the Maine town of Derry and this time things are going to be weird and strenuous for the Loser Club to dig out the reality about Pennywise.
I must say that the star cast was much stronger, and this positive point compels viewers to watch it. Kudos to all the amazing actors who made the film’s thrilling parts more exciting and sometimes impassioned with their outstanding performance. Each character has performed impressively. James McAvoy and Jay Ryan have performed exceptionally great and one may find them more appealing, this might be because they bear the most prominent resemblance to their younger characters in IT. Jessica who’s the only female in the group has been seen living in an abusive marriage. Chastain played very well when she is first reintroduced, she conveyed well what happened to the character of Beverly in this gap of 27 years. You will witness comedic relief by Bill Hader and then the emotive acts between Jessica and James McAvoy. This movie will not only make you scare when it will touch your hearts emotionally as well by giving you a nostalgia as you’ll see the characters attached to their past. Applaud to Andy for putting in some unimaginable scenes. The ‘Mirror scene’ was the high point of the movie.
Andy Muschietti has directed the film and its both parts are based on Stephan King’s 1986 Novel IT. Warner Bros. Pictures are the distributors. It is produced by New Line Cinema, Vertigo Entertainment, Ride Back and Double Dream. The film has been released on September 6th, 2019 across the United States by Warner Bros. Pictures.
One negative thing about the movie is that it’s pretty much long about 3 hours and 50 minutes which is a drawback which means it is half hour longer than IT. To reach out the end, some of the scenes are dragged which the movie to hold its grip. However, if you get lost in its characters then I think this drawback can be ignored!
Overall, it’s a great movie with a conclusive end which is indeed satisfactory. The dialogue delivery by the star cast, pauses, silence and suspense make the environment more dramatic. It may take a lead on almost every level where in most times its characters will make it work seeing.
