Plot Summary

Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Morgan Freeman ("The Sum of All Fears," "Along Came A Spider") stars in this supernatural thriller from the master of horror, Stephen King, with a screenplay by Academy Award-winner William Goldman ("Absolute Power," "All The President's Men"). Tom Sizemore ("Saving Private Ryan," "Heat") and Donnie Wahlberg ("The Sixth Sense," "Band of Brothers," TV's "Boomtown") also star in the film directed by Academy Award-nominee Lawrence Kasdan, who co-wrote the screenplays for "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi." Four friends, tied together through a telepathic bond they gained as children, reunite as adults to fight an invading alien force that controls human beings like helpless puppets and threaten to take over the earth.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: While the movie is fairly unpleasant it's also, finally, so ludicrous that you begin to wonder if it isn't all a big put-on. – Charles Taylor,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: If hopeless literalist Kasdan could have decided on a tone ... this could have been a gynophobe's Independence Day. – Laura Sinagra, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Stupid, sophomoric and moronically silly, it leaves you with the feeling that you might welcome shock treatment just to get your brain back. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: A bloated mess that makes mush out of King's novel. – Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News, Jun 24, 2010

Buy this movie - you'll want to watch it more than once.

This is a great movie. It has a great ensemble cast. I’m a Lawrence Kasden fan (Big Chill, French Kiss, Mumford, etc.), and he is very good at making the interpersonal dynamics between his characters seem genuine and 3 dimensional. Combine that with a sci-fi horror story by Stephen King that is layered and complex, yet cohesive, and you can’t lose. It's also iInteresting to see Timothy Olyphant's transition from a pudgy kind of loser in this movie to sort of a heart-throb in Catch and Release and a sociopathic villian in the latest Die Hard.


This is a good movie that however lacks the depth of the book. Other than that a good adaptation.

Excellent Thriller

This movie falls in line with greats like Carpenters 'The Thing' It was suspenseful, and well filmed. You felt the cold, and fear.
