The Mist...

Tina and I finally received The Mist from Netflix the other day and watched it last night. As far as Stephen King movies go it isn't too bad. It had a lot of tension (which I love), but the CGI's were a bit farfetched IMO. I thought the acting was very well done. Thomas Jane (The Punisher and Dreamcatcher) is a good actor and played an intense role in this movie. I liked the movie, but I can't say I loved it. It was NOT The Shining (the BEST horror movie ever!), and it is not even the best Stephen King movie (Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile are my favorites). However, it was a very entertaining movie even if a few of the elements were not believable or realistic... even for a "horror" movie. Check out the trailer, it is very intense. Good movie and worth watching.
