Skip to comments.It: Chapter 2’ Review: History’s Most Incompetent Killer Clown Returns
Posted on 09/06/2019 2:53:01 PM PDT by Ennis85
No tension, no dread, no sense of peril, no suspense Pennywise, the most incompetent killer clown in movie history, returns for It: Chapter 2, which isnt very good, but at least its long. Oh, man, is this sucker long; just a few minutes shy of three hours, and you feel every minute of it.
Length is not necessarily a problem, not even when it comes to It. Stephen Kings 1986 novel is close to 1200 pages and plenty engrossing. The 1990 television miniseries is over three hours (it was originally broadcast over two nights), and while its not scary, Tim Curry is beyond fabulous as Pennywise and the wistfully, nostalgic storys compelling enough that I own the Blu-ray.
But length is a real problem when the product is an episodic and illogical slog.
What the hell is It, anyway?
Apparently It is a space-monster of some kind that arrived on earth millions of years ago to feed off the fear of children (were there children millions of years ago?) every 27 years (why every 27 years?), and because children fear clowns more than anything else (who knew?), It appears as Pennywise the Clown (Bill Skarsgård) to drag them down into the sewers.
Pennywise might also feed off your fear.
I dont know.
All I know is this
Pennywise sucks at killing people. Even when hes as big as three story building and sporting six claws he still cant kill anyone, even in an enclosed space.
Worse still, even though he can shrink and grow at will, Pennywise is such an incompetent murderer that when his prey hides in a small space, rather than shrink to go get them, he crashes and bangs against the hiding place like a retarded dinosaur.

But enough about Joe Biden
In the book he was really good at killing kids, anyway
But, screenwriters are notorious for ignoring the book authors vision.
I enjoyed the ABC television of “It” and later, with certain reservations, the book by Stephen King.
However the theater version sucks. What nearly drove me and my brother outta of the theater was the snotty kid whose every sentence used cuss words, particularly the “F’ bomb.
“Pennywise” wasn’t scary, just obnoxious in a Homosexual way.
Won’t grace the threatre for “It” II
I was going to completely ignore Black Panther until Nolte outlined that it was really more of a Galt's Gulch and the Panther was Trump defending the homeland. That review right there made me decide to watch it.
That movie is so bad it is good, but I still can’t figure out if the producers were trying to be funny or serious.
More Poundfoolish than Pennywise in this version.
I never saw the first one but I do know I will see this one only to see James McAvoy.
Should have called it SH-It 2 -The Stephen King Story! Starring Stephen King as “Pound-Foolish!”
