Why watch this film?
'It: Chapter Two' is a demonstration that more doesn't always mean better, as the movie drags on for much of its lengthy second act. Stephen King's book has always been considered one of his hardest works to adapt to the screen and, with the second part, director Andy Muschietti achieves an imperfect but satisfactory result by repeating the formula of the first: an unmatchable cast and a script that, most of the time, foregoes its more abstract mystical elements to approach a traditional blockbuster. It's a worthy conclusion, but very different from the previous one - so don't expect so much tension and easy scares. The objective of the movie is to cause catharsis, so humor is the order of the day, sometimes in excess and even involuntarily. At least we have a fair homage to King himself, who appears as a store clerk while drinking mate with the shield of Club Atlético Independiente (the director is a fanatical "hincha" of the Argentinean association).
