  • I like Christopher Walken but he just doesn't have a wide range of emotions and, at times, his character wasn't very believable
  • The movie also hacks apart the book, leaving out some of the best parts

      OK, is there a movie Christopher Walken doesn�t have a role in? Though, I have to admit, it was a bit strange seeing him actually be the star rather than have a supporting role.

      Last night was the first time I had a chance to watch this movie from


      the early 80s and, while I did have some hopes for the movie since I read Stephen King’s book, I have to say I was bored out of my mind.

      Walken plays a young man who is in an accident that puts him in a coma for 5 years.


      • When he wakes up, he has psychic abilities that allow him to witness both past events and future events just by touching someone’s hand. His powers allow him to help solve a murder and prevent a young boy from drowning but they also slowly drive him insane.

        I like

        Christopher Walken but he just doesn’t have a wide range of emotions and, at times, his character wasn’t very believable. The movie also hacks apart the book, leaving out some of the best parts.

        The Dead Zone is just not a movie I would feel comfortable recommending. It’s just not good enough.
