Firestarter (2022)

I watched Firestarter (2022). It is supposedly based on the book by Stephen King. Yes I have read the book a long time ago and I have seen the old movie. This movie can be found on Peacock. It has Zac Efron, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, Sydney Lemmon, Michael Greyeyes, Gloria Reuben, Kurtwood Smith, and John Beasley.

Big Warning: there is some violence.

In case some haven’t read the book or seen the old movie, here’s a summary of all three. A guy named Andrew (Andy in this movie) and a woman named Vicky decide to do a clinical trial of a drug while they were college. The drug though makes them have special powers. Andrew has powers of making people believe anything and Vicky can move stuff with her mind. They fall in love and have a daughter named Charlie. Charlie has powers too. She can start fires with her mind. The government agency that did the clinical trial want Charlie to run tests on her. In the end, Charlie fights back.

I sorta liked this movie. I am watching the old movie next week so I can compare. But I do agree with some people on IMDB this movie shouldn’t have been rebooted and they should have put in movie about the clinical trials like the book and the old movie had. Also there is a tv show called Firestarter 2: Rekindled. It is supposedly a sequel to the movie. It’s on Peacock too. And I will be watching this show too soon.
