Fails to Ignite
I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Drew Barrymore version of this Stephen King story, nor have I read the book, so I honestly can’t tell you if this lived up to either of those. What I can say is that, despite some interesting flourishes, mostly this is a pedestrian adventure and I’m not sure who the target audience is.
Charlie McGee (Ryan Kiera Armstrong) is a young girl with a supernatural power, when upset, she can generate an intense and destructive fire that she is impervious too. An incident at her school exposes her to a government agency that would like to bring her in for experimentation, one that has a dark history of dealing with people with powers. As her mother Vicky (Sydney Lemmon) and father Andy (Zac Efron) try to get her to safety, another powered individual Rainbird (Michael Greyeyes) is on their trail.
Blumhouse Studios has quite the history of successfully soft rebooting horror films now and their success with “The Invisible Man” is plastered all over the advertising for this one, unfortunately it’s not telling anything like as interesting or relevant of a story. Dangerous power in the (relatively) unstable hands of a child is a familiar plot but here it’s crowbarred into a low rent revenge action film, if anything – desperately lacking in scares, or invention, to make the experience worthwhile.
I did like the 80’s aesthetic. Though it didn’t extend to the actual setting, the typeface and style of the credit sequences are retro inspired and interesting, and there’s a John (and Cody) Carpenter provided score, which is full of the sort of synthetic sounds that he’s know for. I also can’t actively criticise the performances of anyone involved, though by the same token, nobody particularly stands out. The visual effects are fine, if a bit toned down for what they might have been.
It’s just all in service of a story that’s not very interesting. I know it’s not a horror story in the way some other King narratives are, but it’s desperately lacking in any sort of thrills.
An insult to the original
Very poor, poor effects, poor story, cheesy, so disappointed with this. If you are going to remake a cult classic, then have a look at what made it a classic to start. This is just a lifeless boring sham. If you loved the original film, give this a miss, if you haven’t seen the original, then it might just about keep you awake.
