I love Carpenter, and I like Christine well enough, but I'm not as enthusiastic about it as I am about other King films.

Relatively artless when compared to several other King adaptations around the time (Carrie, The Shining, The Dead Zone) or even with Carpenter's previous picture (1982's career-best The Thing), the film still delivers the goods as entertainment.

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

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

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