In the novella, there is no wind, not even a light breeze when they are in Bangor. Since this was virtually impossible to execute for the movie they simply created dialogue to explain that even with a wind down here the clouds are not moving. See more »

I have to say I enjoyed this film a lot. I hadn't heard of it before but I found the film interesting. This film provides an interesting take on time travel not depicted in other time travel movies.
To be perfectly honest I did not see this as a scare film. It was not remotely frightening to me, but that did not prove to be a negative part to it. The story is brilliantly told, and the sfx weren't that bad. It was clearly an unreal format of effects, but this added to the unique structure.
Overall I enjoyed the Langoliers, a story of mystery and adventure crammed with plot twists.
