A waste of 4 hrs of my life
12 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a Stephen King fan, but have not read this particular book. I will say that I prefer King's earlier works and I have not been overly pleased with the movie adaptations of his books. I am a huge Pierce Brosnan fan, which is why I watched, but this has got to be one of the worst things he has ever done, but that could have been due to poor directing. There were so many pieces of the story that were missing, the story line was very choppy. It made me wonder if it had been heavily edited. I read a bit about the book on Wikipedia. I don't understand why the story was changed, the book seemed so much more interesting. The book ending was much more dramatic than the movie. The 1st night was not very good, but since I had already invested 2 hours, I thought I would go ahead and finish it. I would rather have watched reruns of Dog the Bounty Hunter. I say read the book, skip the mini series.
