One of Stephen King's biggest objections to the Stanley Kubrick version was that Jack Nicholson played Jack Torrance as if he was already mad. This adaptation takes great pains to make Torrance seem fine at the start, slowly succumbing to madness as he endures an isolated winter at the Overlook Hotel. See more »

This movie was utterly awful. I was waiting for something to happen and nothing did. 6 hours of my life wasted. This movie pales in comparison to Kubrick's version. Some of the special effects looks fake. It suppose to make you scared, but it fails to do that. Steven Webber's acting looks forced. His portrayal of a drunken mad man is pathetic. Jack Nicholson's performance in Kubric's version was infinitely better. It doesn't matter that this movie is closer to the way Stephen King's book is. I thought the ending would make up for the slow beginning, but it only disappointed me.
