Christine Reviews

December 9, 2013
Christine shows us what great filmmakers can do with flawed material, and how even their greatness can't solve every problem.
January 8, 2011
Slickly made dumb horror flick about a diabolical car and a nerd transformed into a lady killer.
September 24, 2007
This deja vu premise [from the novel by Stephen King] combined with the crazed vehicle format, makes Christine appear pretty shop-worn.
September 24, 2007
Boils down to another average adaptation of one of the increasingly weak Stephen King novels that hit Hollywood like a bad rash in 1983.
September 24, 2007
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.

Only a moderately engrossing film.

Christine doesn't distinguish itself alongside director John Carpenter's high points.
