Christine shows us what great filmmakers can do with flawed material, and how even their greatness can't solve every problem.

Lessons of Darkness

Proves Carpenter's mastery of both mood and the widescreen frame.

Fifties fetishism here is not nostalgia but critique, the cultural residue that deforms consciousness

Tight editing and some decent scares make this one of the better King adaptations.

This deja vu premise [from the novel by Stephen King] combined with the crazed vehicle format, makes Christine appear pretty shop-worn.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Boils down to another average adaptation of one of the increasingly weak Stephen King novels that hit Hollywood like a bad rash in 1983.

Carpenter's thematic self-consciousness can't entirely overcome a shaky dramatic structure that sacrifices character logic to increasingly meaningless thrills.

Off the page, a 1958 Plymouth is no more scary than the St Bernard which romped through Cujo.

This is the kind of movie where you walk out with a silly grin, get in your car, and lay rubber halfway down the Eisenhower.
