In the sleepy town of Derry, the evil clown Pennywise returns 27 years later to torment the grown-up members of the Losers' Club, who have long since drifted apart from one another.
IT Chapter Two is the perfect example of one whose cast and story matured from it's counterpart. The cinematography and effects are honestly stellar and the quality overall is just Grade A. For one, a cast like this has never been seen in a horror movie.
You're getting names like Jessica Chastain, Andy Bean, Bill Skarsgard, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, and many more genre actors and throwing them together. The amazing thing is is that none of it feels fake! Their chemistry is phenomenal and it elevates IT Chapter Two. The return of the younger cast is also fantastic, as you see these young talents growing in their craft more and more.
IT Chapter Two is rated R for disturbing violent content and bloody images throughout, pervasive language, and some crude sexual material.
Now, the only complaint I really possess is the ending. Even then, IT Chapter Two still makes sense. I left wanting more, but is that honestly a bad thing?
If there's any sort of lesson to take away from IT Chapter Two it was the idea of dealing with childhood trauma(or trauma in general). It conveys the message that it's okay to take time to heal and deal with it.
