Critic Reviews for The Mist
[This] grocery-store survival drama, dominated by Marcia Gay Harden as a shrill fundamentalist, serves as a crude but effective allegory for post-9/11 America.
The Mist builds toward a climax so wrenching that I hesitate to recommend the film, but I think Darabont earns his vision.
Even though it is mindless, at least until the provocative ending, The Mist manages to provide some decent old-school shocks.
Audience Reviews for The Mist
Personally I thought this was excellent! Heard little about it before seeing it, but once I heard it is based on a Stephen King story I had to check it out. It certainly is typical Stephen King stuff, weird and wonderful. A mix of Cloverfield and the Fog. If you haven't seen it go check it out!
Some performances were less memorable than others and its plot could be deemed outlandish at times, but the film makes good in instilling a fearful and direct vibe. The Mist's alarming tone, dreadful and tragic sequences is more than enough to wipe away the blemishes. 4/5
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.
