It Chapter Two ★½

Such a piece of shit, and total hack job. The Chinese restaurant scene alone, divorced from any sense of place in the overarching story, and shot worse than the very worst of Tom Holland's television King films, should clue you in to the lack of imagination and greater design, completely indistinguishable from any other director-for-hire trash at the multiplex. But then there are also the random flashbacks, so obviously deleted scenes from the first chapter, and the episodic nature of the whole affair. Very rarely in cinema has a five hour film accomplished so little.
