It Chapter 2 felt rushed and far less captivating as the its predecessor.   It chapter two traded scares for humor, which is a huge disappointment for fans of the 2017 movie.  I was expecting an elevated experience with more nightmares.  What we received was an anti-climactic mess with a ton of plot holes.

The writers and director had three hours to tell a story, but it goes absolutely nowhere and fails to answer any burning questions.   Instead of building on the incredible foundation of its fist entry, we are left seeing a strong cast being wasted, a non-engaging story, and a lackluster sequel.

If you loved the first movie, end on a high note and skip the sequel.
