Yes, until this final humanist king just don't think about it. Yes, it terrible final. And me he pleasures left. But worth to film for finale? Or for picture with Roland in the beginning (wait, wait, "the Dark Tower"... go on, of course, but for all equals)? But if not for this, why?

Itself a "Fog" — not the best work of king. It saves-the eternal Kingovskoy the theme of hope and its master psychology. Yeah and not "the langoliers", and even more than "the Rescue of Shawshank". But there none of this! The main character plays a bad character — worse, and the secondary is only good awful ugly and amazingly brave Manager Ollie. Well and fanatical Carmody too, located in the suit. Was it still some nice rocker, but he was given only a few minutes of screen time, the world of his ashes.

In General, to film the king — task of light. Especially those things the main — mental state of the characters. In the movie state of mind as it is not have developed, all focused on action. Did that, went there, died the or otherwise in a creepy way. Not get used, not empathize with these people because too well seen them with actors, pure and rich, which no creature does not threaten, which doesn't scary...

A sort of sterility what is happening... no Kingovskoy soft humor, no his black humor or its extreme, acute empathy, even the villains, or his sincere love for their land.

In General, that is with Darabont? "The green mile"is good, yeah and "Escape from the Shawshank" is also a strong film, king he then you felt... and there seemed to cut something like spoke "soul ITERA": the resonance of their shower upset. Alas.

The film is viewed. Remained mixed, but still more positive feelings.

I could watch the first half of the film. The beginning is absolutely creepy for horror (Though The Mist is clearly not treshovy horror, and social-psychological horror). Bad weather, the neighbors, the supermarket, the wounded man tells us we about "trouble".

Waited... waited from Frank something that could erase the first half of the film. And here, the film was only 50%, the fun began.

People closed in a confined place, no exit, asking: "what next?","I do, how to live?"
And many in the supermarket broke... don't matter if they hope for God's Forgiveness in the face of crazy, a single woman, or found a way out of the situation by swallowing pills, or hanging on the rope, but not all people can cope with the first and foremost in a critical situation.

The main character realized that if to be supermarket, the most likely, either you will be the crowd, or the crowd will crush you(physically or mentally)

Then followed the path to neizvestnosti(=path in nowhere), in which the end, people are broke...

Movies, released under the brand name "based on the novel by Stephen king" always get mixed. Either it turns out the high-level movie like it is was "the Green Mile", "the Escape from the Shawshank" or Frank tedious stool, designed for viewer, particularly zamorachivayas over the essence, meaning and the contents of the tape.

In fact, released the film based on the novel king's "the Mist" (in the original "Myst ") is already the third attempt to revive the atmosphere and fear that carries the book itself.

The first attempt of statement, which appeared in the 80-ies, I have to say, for me is the benchmark of the horror film. There were the same atmosphere and the same horror and the same buzz that are in his novels king.

The second attempt, which is a remake of the earlier picture, published in 2005, essentially carried in itself only the repetition of old scenes, those same replica, only with the addition of beautiful girls who of course burst into the film on part, and the main character, pretty boy, known for the TV series "Smallville". Bombshell, not happened, but a pleasant, murmuring osadochek remained.

On the third picture, the creators of thinking decided to take only the Foundation that the city finds the fog. In the original mist on essentially carried in the city the souls of the dead sailors, even in ancient times crashed from the shores of this quiet town that tore all his anger on the locals. Here the fog was only the result of the experiments scientists on the temporary space (nonsense, really, I swear!), which in the course of their actions brought to the city all flying, duplicatekey crap, just killing people.
If we consider a film with the point of intersection with the novel, I had the right to withdraw or PostScript "cinema, according to the novel of Stephen king's" just not had to stand.

If look at the film with the point of view of a modern Thriller-horror about how it is difficult to live among addicted people, which goes the roof literally OTO only — the movie fact pass, but does not involve. Beautiful, refined story, not carrier-sense ideas, yeah and just not catchy.

A waste of two hours, the excess emotions from the desire to get high, extra words in the creators, the extra for modern cinema movie.
