Firestarter (1984)

Firestarter (1984)

Country: USA

Director: Mark. L. Lester

Main Stars: Drew Barrymore, David Keith, Heather Locklear, Martin Sheen

Storyline: Young couple sign up to be part of experiment to make money. They gain psychic abilities from the testing. They have a child who is born with pyrotechnic abilities due to chemical nature of her parents. The government want to get hold of the child!






Review(Spoils): Stephen King can write books unfortunate in most cases he cannot get good directors to make them into films. This movie was like watching a made for TV film. The whole movie was basically Andy McGee (David Keith) and his daughter Charlie (Drew Barrymore) running.Sure we had some explosions and people burning in fire but it seemed the whole film could of been done in one hour. Just not enough substance and not enough Heather Locklear! It all just seemed cheesy.

Rating: I low rate this as there are way better Stephen King movies out there and this one was lacking. Like I said it felt like a made for TV movie. More Heather Locklear next time!



3/10 Beers!
