Final chapter chills but sets glacial pace
It Chapter Two Sky Cinema Premiere
It Chapter Two fails to match its predecessor as director Andy Muschietti and writer Gary Dauberman take a too much of a good thing approach.
The sequel’s biggest flaw is its length; there’s no need for the near-three-hour running time.
But the adult cast are on top form, especially the imperious Jessica
McAvoy and Bill
Hader; while Bill
Skarsgård‘s Pennywise continues to be the stuff of nightmares.
And one thing Muschietti doesn’t struggle to recreate from the first flick is his ability to make an audience cower in fear.
