Get your advisor on speed dial, since IT Chapter Two is almost here to retraumatise you including an alarming comedian to how frightening growing up is — and the principal responses are in as commentators and fans stream out of the primary screenings.
The general state of mind is: IT Chapter One, however more. In the event that you wound up picking openings in the primary motion picture, you’ll likely be disappointed once more; on the off chance that you adored the individual stakes and the characters, there’s that in spades here, with exhibitions from the grown-up Losers to match any “genuine” dramatization; and the consummation may make you cry.
Also, on the off chance that it caused you to lose rest, you can anticipate a greater amount of that as well.
In any case, regardless of whether individuals weren’t 100 percent energetic about the film overall, one thing stuck out: Bill Hader pulverizes his presentation as adult Richie.
#ITChapterTwo is a terrific companion to #ITChapterOne. Similar vibes, great ensemble chemistry w/ a nice mix of humor and horror. Part 2 plays heavier in tone, dealing w/ defeating the burden of childhood trauma, & I definitely teared up at the very end. Bill Hader steals it pic.twitter.com/bjiwtJufNQ

So, #ITChapterTwo: it's v. good, but not great. I liked it, but didn't LOVE it. First movie is a tough act to follow. TWO is gruesome, strange but rarely scary. Nails important aspects from the book, but feels overlong. Cast is aces, though, & Bill Hader SHOULD be in Oscar convo. pic.twitter.com/1KUZk5TXA1

#ITChapter2 isn't as refined as the first, but it's still an excellent ensemble piece, oozing with heart & packed with extremely well-crafted set pieces. Muschietti weaves the young & adult Losers together super well, giving IT 2 a truly epic feel. (MVP: Bill Hader as Richie.) pic.twitter.com/7dXmIsd2z6

#ITChapter2 has a rushed, clumsy first act & an odd lack of chemistry among the adult Losers. But it eventually finds its footing. This is a BIG movie—a go for broke horror blockbuster not afraid to make weird choices. Bill Hader steals the show. #ITMovie #ITChapterTwo pic.twitter.com/cib2slRfoq

#ITChapterTwo is big and ambitious and can't *quite* handle the weight of its aspirations, but it's still a fine piece of heartfelt horror. The parts that work, work REALLY well and Bill Hader is every-bit the scene-stealing standout we all hoped he'd be.

#ItChapterTwo is a giant budget, studio-backed horror movie that’s also a fairly serious actors showcase/ensemble, with occasional flashes of brilliant imagery (like all the balloons cascading under the bridge). It’ll make more money than Warner Bros knows what to do with. pic.twitter.com/Noscq1X1j1

In what has seemed like an endlessly dour news day, we cap is off with mostly GREAT early reactions from #ITChapterTwo!
It’s so cool that, in a few weeks, we may see the FIRST EVER R-Rated (& HORROR) film in history to reach a billion at the worldwide box office. So exciting! pic.twitter.com/zIqmUKrMCz
