Critic Reviews for The Mist
Frank Darabont presents a movie with one of the most pesimist and hopeless endings in cinema history. [Full review in Spanish]
The Mist is a creature feature in which the monsters are almost incidental, but the panic and fear-mongering that comes with the territory is what ultimately causes the most chaos.
The Mist has a lot of the elements to be one of the great horror films, but it never quite puts it all together. It's still very good, but a few missteps keep it from ever being more than that.
The black-and-white version's stark contrasts give greater claustrophobic force to the fragility of civilization when ideology grows as deadly as any marauding beasts. Prepare also to be knocked cold and gut-kicked for good measure by its ending.
Writer-director Frank Darabont had skillfully translated the human drama of Stephen King's work in The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption , but he seems hopelessly lost in The Mist.
Audience Reviews for The Mist
This was a good movie, tense and strong till the end. I am sorry but as a father of two kids the ending was just not appropriate in my eyes.
The best way I can sum-up this film is: it's intense. There's nothing particularly extraordinary about the acting or dialogue but the interesting characters (particularly the religious fanatic played by Marcia Gay Harden), the mysterious unnatural mist, and shocker ending are more than enough to recommend this one.
For me it was a typical stephen king horror that i knew from the start would be boring, slow and nothing explained and i was right ! Not with the effort of watching!
