Disappointing
10 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

The kids are great actors.

The visual effects are obviously impressive at times.

However:

The film lacks narrative; just jumped from one dramatic scene to another, relentlessly. This meant there was no opportunity to build tension, or to show off any kind of writing.

Poor script.

The film tries to hang off its CGI Pennywise, over-use of comedic jerky monster-movements and loud stand-alone scenes.

Too much talking from Pennywise.

Missed opportunities for the whole town and adults to succumb to the pervading sense of evil that I would expect from IT

I was more scared talking about a memory of a good horror film on the way home. Laughable.

It's like eating a whole bag of pick and mix for your dinner thinking it will satisfy you.
