    I will say this. Having seen it, there is no suspense, and even though our characters get into dire circumstances, I didn't gain much empathy for them nor care what happened. Also, it was hard to understand what was going on, what they were doing, and why they were doing it. Just kinda seemed rushed.

    Such a uniformly and strongly negative group of reviews unfortunately stokes the fires of my curiosity - I have no choice but to watch it.

    Too bad that it sucks; I wasn't in love with the book but thought it could make a fine movie.

    I've wondered sometimes about really bad movies and whether the actors know while they're shooting scenes that it's gonna be a doozie. Or if they only realize it after the whole editing and production process and when they watch it.

    I think the director / editor can have a lot to do with it. I was intrigued by how the acting in Under the Dome got worse from season to season. It's not like the actors forgot how to act -- at least I hope not! But the performances degraded, and I can only attribute that to forces outside the actors.

    That makes sense. It's got to be a bummer for the actors who might give a great performance but poor writing/dialogue and directing or editing results in a bad movie. Although seasoned actors are probably used to it.

    I think I will save my money. I was skeptical from the start because it was one of the only King books that I actually hated and these reviews do nothing to think the film will change my assessment.

    I didn't think this was really that bad. It wasn't good but not terrible.
    I think with another million and removing that stupid green/blue filter it would have helped. It definitely feels unfinished.

    I agree that the movie wasn't that bad.....except for the last three or so minutes. Then I was wondering what the actual fuck! Made me want my 98 minutes back.

    It was terrible. Incoherent at best and generally incomprehensible.

    In my opinion cell wasn't meant to be a thriller or really suspenseful! Have the people who are reviewing the movie read the book? I think it was like page 4 or 5 and BAM all he'll breaks loose and it gets really bloody and gory really fast!
    I'll reserve judgment until I get the chance to see it myself which I hope other constant readers do the same!

    Amazon still wants $3.99 to stream it.

    I'd rather just waste my time than my money. I'll wait until it's free.

    It's on Netflix now. Some funny moments but, man, I tapped out when they started having an actual, real conversation in some bar midway through the movie. I doubt I'll ever finish it. What did they pay Jackson and Cusack, a pizza and a beer? Damn.

    Wonder how it would have been if Eli Roth had done it as initially planned.

    Thanks for the heads-up about Netflix. I will check it out but based on everything I heard it will not be an entertaining time.

    I actually liked it a lot more than I thought I would, based on the opinions here. It wasn't a COMPLETELY faithful adaptation, but it was very fast-paced, had some good action, and kept me entertained for the whole runtime.
