As good as any Stephen King movie. Not the profound classics ... and not the classy thrillers... but certainly on par with any effective supernatural tale.
October 14, 2004
The ending of which, both on the page and, now, on the screen, lands with an overly elegiac thud. Still, the journey is often fine.

A fairly middle of the road fright film that treads dangerously close to being silly.

...a nifty supernatural drama that features some truly terrifying scenarios, while also offering up a bit of well-placed humor and poignancy.
August 10, 2004
Flaws and all, it works pretty well.

A very sub-par series of clunky ideas about mortality, none of which amount to a decent horror film.

...wholly ineffective...

As obras de Stephen King já renderam alguns ótimos filmes, mas também muitos péssimos. Infelizmente, Riding the Bullet se encaixa nesta última categoria.

Imagine a feature-length version of the "Large Marge" sequence from Pee-wee's Big Adventure and you won't be too far off, only that was scarier.

A ponderous, incoherent horror mishmash that turns King's short story into utter nonsense.
October 20, 2004
The movie is so glum and flat-footed there's no reason to care.

Both the anticipation factor and writer-director Mick Garris' slick adaptation fail to live up to the old hype.
October 15, 2004
An incoherent melange of horror movie gimmicks that's genuinely laughable when it strives for profundity. It induces more tedium than terror.

There are lots of cheap scares and mind games that detract from the main attraction: the interesting family drama.

Overall it doesn't amount to much more than a goofy campfire tale.

Goes beyond simply being a bad movie, to the point where it becomes one that insults your intelligence.

Yet another reason to think twice before thumbing a ride, kids.

A better name for the film would be Taking the Bullet, because that's what sitting through this dopey, pretentious mess feels like.

It's a navel-gazing meditation on death smothered under excess and ham-handed direction, better suited for late-night cable.
