CylusO'Brady's Rating of Carrie

Cylus' Review of Carrie

3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


This adaptation certainly cannot compare to the original or even the 2002 remake for that matter. Personally I didn't find Chloe Mortez the best choice to play the disturbed and pitiful Carrie; she just didn't pull off the character very well, and some of her scenes she was clearly overcompensating. Julianne Moore was great as the mother though. Beyond that the movie was certainly watchable. I just wished they had taken the film and made it their own instead of more or less doing the same exact thing with lesser results.
