Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The issues raised may make for some lively debate on the way home -- especially if it's foggy out.
Fresh: It's a horror movie of real conviction. It deserves to be a hit.
Fresh: The Mist builds toward a climax so wrenching that I hesitate to recommend the film, but I think Darabont earns his vision.
Rotten: There's a glib twist at the end, which seems out of character, and the movie could easily lose 20 minutes, maybe 40.
Best watched on a foggy day
Ranks up there with the finest of Stephen King’s works, this is a wonderful adaptation of his 1980 novella although the ending of this movie is somewhat astray from the book. Apart for the differences though I thought this was a wonderful movie both in the depth of the character portrayals (a classic trademark of Stephen King) as well as the scope of how the mind tries to find hope in a world that’s gone horribly wrong. A very eerie tale to say the least, best watched on a foggy day.
Good movie very creepy. Didn't like the ending though. Left you hanging. Don't like iTunes doesn't offer the book.
I watched this movie at my friends house at around 3 in the morning. It was great. I'm going to buy it on iTunes. Its not to scary, a little gory, and a little disturbing. But if you have all those then you have a great horror movie. The ending was kinda weird and a little stupid. I wish that they would have all made it. But if I was in your shoes I would buy this movie as soon as possible.
