This was outstanding, and ranks right up there for me, both in terms of Stephen King adaptations in general and Cronenberg’s work in particular. It also houses one of my very favourite Christopher Walken performances. When I see Martin Sheen be such a jerk here, it both makes me realize where his son Charlie gets that side of his personality from and makes me fear, even though I’m Canadian, the fact that Donald Trump actually has a chance of being the next president of the United States. It also reaffirms in my heart the great adoration I have for Brooke Adams.
The Dead Zone is a movie that hits several genres and carries itself very well. It’s able to do so due to the strength of the main character, Johnny Smith, played so well by Christopher Walken. Walken’s performance is casual at times and absolutely stunning at others. To think that Bill Murray was thought by Stephen King to be a better option is crazy. Walken’s performance brings out the best in the rest of the ensemble as the movie goes through 3 acts, with several stories intermingled quite nicely with each other. While it is not a true horror movie, in my opinion, the work of David Cronenberg comes out nicely in some scene’s that remind you he is in charge of our minds during the 100 minute or so feature.
I highly recommend this to anyone that loves Stephen King adaptions or psychological thrillers. It is a movie, that in my opinion, has aged very nicely and holds it’s own in any era. Great film! I give this movie a solid 8 out of 10.
dead zone, lively film
It seems that movies starring Christopher Walken just can’t go wrong! David Cronenberg’s adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dead Zone” features him in one of his most interesting roles as literature teacher Johnny Smith, who becomes psychic after surviving a car wreck. He uses his newfound power to help people avoid danger, but soon faces a moral dilemma when it looks like political candidate Greg Stilson (Martin Sheen) may become the next Hitler.
This is one of those movies that has shades of everyone involved in it. Walken’s eerie presence, Sheen’s (apparent) “aw shucks” demeanor, plus the horrific feeling of Cronenberg and King. You’re sure to love it. Also starring are Brooke Adams as Johnny’s ex hubby, and Herbert Lom as a doctor (you may expect him to launch into an anti-Clouseau diatribe, but his role here is as far removed from Commissioner Dreyfus as possible).
Very well done.
one of the most human–and humane–King adaptations
I keep having to remind myself that David Cronenberg directed this, as it is so unlike his previous and subsequent work–more mainstream, less cold, and far less fixated on gooey special effects. What is going on here? One of the most stunning adaptations of a Stephen King novel with Christopher Walken absolutely brilliant as tortured coma victim Johnny Smith, that’s what. An elementary-school teacher preparing to marry Sarah (Brooke Adams), Johnny has a run-in with fate that throws him into a coma for 5 years; when he awakens, he is plagued by psychic visions, including a chilling apocalypse that frames the film’s final act. While the horror elements (including a suicide via scissors) carry an appropriate impact, the core of “The Dead Zone” is Walken’s performance–he portrays Johnny as a recluse who regards his visions as a curse, and taps into a sensitivity and vulnerability that is rarely seen in male film characters; his interactions with others carry a down-home, plausible feel that gives the film a strong emotional resonance. Cronenberg directs Jeffrey Boam’s script almost as a series of vignettes, but maintains a flowing pace and trusts Walken to deliver the film to a heartfelt, tragic conclusion.
