The Mist

I laughed at the ending of The Mist, out loud, an actual lol. This is a problem because it is absolutely not meant to be funny. I think the film makers had ‘heart wrenching’ in mind, but it doesn’t work like that at all. I can’t put my finger on why, the computer graphics are not the best you have ever seen, and the acting isn’t either – even though I am fairly sure it has the real life version of the bad kid in toy story in, and he was great in that, really believable. But none of these things is absolutely awful, and the story is based on a Steven King novel and actually has a bit more depth than expected. I think it is that mist is pretty scary stuff, anything could be out there – it would have been so much cooler if it was ghosts – and the film doesn’t make the most of this at all, why spend so much time making monsters when you can just cgi some mist, its the title for goodness sake.
