Firestarter is now one of the best comedy films in 2022, featuring belly laughs from the start and throughout the whole runtime. Zac Efron is at his hilarious best as actors come and go from the film, causing your stomach to plummet. Bravo to everyone involved! It''s awkward, but it''s uncomfortable, with completely forgettable characters, a confusing tone, and is one of the worst Stephen King adaptations released in a long time.
Half A Film, Like Half A Film.A Bad Half.
There isn''t much more to say about Firestarter, which is the second time it has come to screens. Somehow, with a runtime of only 92 minutes, there''s something to be felt about the character. At the same time, you don''t have to worry about anyone else''s names except Charlie (Ryan Kiera Armstrong) or even why they are in the film, however. For one hour, the effects are noticeable, but there''s no choice but to make $5, which is not the
It feels like half a film, although it would be nocturnal to sit through all of these 92 minutes. Firestarter gets a long run as a result of those steps, but this final twenty minutes are far too short for the filmmaker to realize how emotional it must have been in making this film; they never take any time to stop and smell the smolder. If they had, some of the issues might have been resolved, but they made no decision.
Kudos to Efron and Armstrong for their dedication, but there was no compromise on this one. Firestarter will be completely forgotten after this weekend, and maybe that is for the best. At least we got a killer John Carpenter score out of it. Instead, let''s pretend he just released a new album.
