Critic Reviews for Watchers

All Critics (4) | Rotten (4)

  • Watchers is a real mess, and it's only a couple of steps up from the dismal Maximum Overdrive, the last Stephen King story to be slaughtered on the screen.

  • We're talking about the only film in the history of celleloid that hopes to entice viewers by placing the name of Corey Haim above the title!

    May 17, 2004 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Arguably, though, the film is worth it for the sight of Haim getting stabbed in the leg and screaming like Demi Moore: you can't script time capsule stuff like that.

    The book is a good read and worth giving a try, even if you saw the movie and didn't like it. The movie hacks up a good book and makes the main character a teenager instead of a grown man. It also has a whole lot less character build up and characters to love. While Michael Ironside would have made a good Lem as well if they didn't turn the character into a complete psycho. <br/><br/> Hell it's barely like the book. The dog is cute though and they at least got everything with him right. But I think they could make a better movie with the right cast and director. The book is a lot more engaging and smart, I strongly recommend it. The movie is a some-what entertaining B-Movie though. Plus the dog at least has some....aww moments.

    Now, this was his second best film. "Silver Bullet" still reigns amongst his collection of movies.
