Leo Brady reviews “It: Chapter Two” on AMovieGuy.com

It must be a sign that I am getting older, where I am blessed with a horror movie that has a runtime of two hours and forty-five minutes, and now my main complaint is how long it is. I’m just not as spry as I once was. I hate to be hung up on the long sit in a movie theater, and I typically follow Roger Ebert’s school of thought that “no good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.” That statement rings true for most films, which is why it is extremely difficult to dismiss Andy Muschietti’s newest adventure with the Losers Club in It Chapter Two. It is 27-years later for the group of kids that defeated the evil clown Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard); they have all grown-up, they have forgotten their past, but the past does not just disappear. Working off the novel from horror-legend Stephen King, It Chapter Two is a valiant effort in making epic sized horror venture, going full circle on this story, including various scares along the way. The problem, however, is that Chapter Two does not exactly work as a single film. I found myself painfully checking my watch in this overlong event.
