It's a decent film but completely unnecessary. It's almost as pointless and blasphemous as doing a remake of The Shining. I guess they thought they could turn a profit, and if they did good for them I guess. I'll bet they do remake The Shining one day. Just for the money grab.
Un'enorme vaccata.Svuotato di qualsivoglia senso,significato,decenza estetica,pathos drammatico,bravura registica e credibilità attoriale,questo film riesce a rovinare il materiale di King e De Palma solo per raccontare la storia stucchevole di una fregna coi super-poteri,stile Fenice di X-Men. Lo scenario alla Dawson Creek è stra-abusato.,Julianne Moore è da impalamento ed il finale è del tutto comico.Vergognatevi
Cheap, tacky, and unnecessary. If the slapdash CGI was replaced with adequate practical effects it might have been a little bit more tolerable... I expected more from Moretz (though it's likely not her fault), but Moore is as painful as usual. Truthfully, I didn't expect much from the director of Stop-Loss.
No one could possibly top the otherworldly torment of Sissy Spacek in the original. Director Kimberly Pierce wisely doesn't attempt to do so and instead updates this story for the Facebook generation; her depiction of Carrie as a sheltered girl raised by a mentally ill, devout Christian mother rings true for me. Beneath the glossy style and low-budget CGI, there's a genuine sadness at the heart of this film.
2 1/2 out of 5 stars. Moretz and Moore were okay, but this version of Carrie didn't need to happen. It felt more like an origin story for an ill-fated would-be X-Man than an adaptation (or worse -- reimagining) of a Stephen King novel. I don't know what Moretz was doing once the bucket dropped but despite some fun carnage, it was lame.
