Movie Review by Movie Addict
April 2nd, 2008

What would you do?

Favorite Movie Quote: "I have had a vision that I am going to be President of the United States someday. And nobody, and I mean *nobody* is going to stop me!"

I have no idea how true this is to King's book, and I don't care. I have read a couple of his books, but this is a review of a movie, not a book.

David Cronenberg (Eastern Promises, Extreme Measures, To Die For) did an absolutely excellent job of directing this film. The story was smooth and thoughtful as Johnny (Christopher Walken) struggled with his abilities and how he would use them, ultimately putting them to use for the good of the many.

If I had any criticism of the film, it was the choice of Walken (The Deer Hunter, Catch Me If You Can) for the lead. He is just too creepy for the role. Casting Martin Sheen ("The West Wing") as the wack-job running for office was brilliant. Sheen brings believability to a role that called for someone not totally in control.

Very good movie for thriller/sci fi fans.
