Lacked the magic of the original film. The casting of the kids in the original was, of course, almost impossible to top but the fear elements were lacking in the new version. Consider what they tried for scares here versus the original when Pennywise comes climbing out of a drain pipe when a kid is taking a shower - I mean for years after seeing that I never saw a drain shower in the bathroom the same.
Lame horror tale about an evil supernatural clown who likes to photo-bomb historical photos when he's not killing children. Not scary and too bombastic, this film wisely drops some of the more ridiculous elements from King's wildly overpraised novel, but it's still a mess. This truly belongs in the sewer.
Pretty damn lame. They should have added an 'S' and an 'H' to the front of the title. Everyone tries hard, but the problem is the bloated and ridiculously bombastic source material. Let's please stop fawning over the supposed genius of Stephen King. He was a capable writer early in his career, but the more praise he received, the less talented he became. His novel IT was needlessly overlong, pretentious, and further marred by narrative indulgences that don't go anywhere. A satisfying adaptation of this poor novel may not be possible.
LOVED it. Way different from the first, a real scare.
ok for all the people who are like oh this wasnt in the mini series or book ya because this is a remake not the exact same movie just like the new iphone
i loved how in the movie pennywise looked a lot scarier then the mini series pennywise if i saw tat clown in a sewer or a dark alley way i would be like NOPE NOPE NOPE IM OUTTA HERE!! but if i saw the mini series pennywise i would be like ahhh are you lost? do you need to find your birthday party? il help you! not to mention i know the mini series pennywise wouldnt hurt me cause cmon lets be honest pretty much everytime pennywise saw a kid in this film he didnt even hurt them! the pennywise from the movie scared them a little bit then tried to kill them for the rest of the movie
Clowns. I like the original movie better. The clown was overacted.
Best scene is when the wavy guy eats the kids face. best comedy I've watched in a long time! Strongly recommend to any child/parent.
Amazing script Great acting Excellent effects
best movie in history I loved the story and loved the characters.
It was crap. Pure and simple.
Not worth the money I paid to see it. So bad
I don't like this movie.
The movie of it is really alsome and the best movie that ever made is interesting how actually how to do walter crops
I like this movie
I love the movie of it my favorite character is Eddie he's so hot it's inspiring to me is the best alsome movie all time i whould love watch it again and again and again
well if your a kid and like funny then go for it. but it sure was not a horror. I would never go by reviews again
Great movie I recommend to everyone
This is the most profitable low budget movie that has ever been made just because of those 5-stars reviews. Not because this is a good one.
I think was a good movie. A classic one.
How the movie was made and just in general the movie was great
I liked that movie a lot me and my friends had a fun time watching it and screaming when we were scared.... So all these other people spreading negative rates and saying "there money wasn't well spent". Come on now this is a great movie all around.🤡🤙🏼🤗
Must put 5-stars.
I really liked this movie.
you either love or hate this movie and i totally loved it!!!
The most profitable movie made. Why? All 5-stars!
Ok, I dislike paying to see a horrow movie. I'd rather rent it for like $5 and watch in the comfort of my own home. My wife likes to 'watch' horror movies (and by 'watch', I mean bury her head in my arm), but I mostly find that the movies aren't really scary. We watched the original IT a couple weeks ago and I thought this is silly, I can handle the new one. I was wrong. Genuine scares. They say if you are scared of heights, try skydiving to overcome your fear. I'm scared of clowns and this did NOT help! It's intensified.
love love love this movie
Great movie!!! Lots of fun!!
Sticks true to the book
I liked the dialogue and how they react from the clown
Awesome, 5 stars for sure.
Yes, 5 stars!
Great actors, great clown not the scariest but a movie with charater.
Creepy good movie.
Most STUPID waste of money flick seen in my life. are you kidding me? You on drugs giving this a five star rating?
