Reiner captures just the right level of physical tension, but for the most part wisely emphasises the mental duels. Terrific.

Misery is a blunt instrument that fractures the kneecaps more often than it tickles the funnybone.

The result is arguably the best King novel-to-film adaptation yet, a tense character study that grows and builds and has plenty of humor, both light and dark, along the way.

Where it is significantly elevated is in the terrifyingly convincing performance by Bates as a schizophrenic psychopath.
