3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but could have been better!, 12 Jun. 2012
By 
This review is from: The Mist [DVD] (DVD)
I have no problems with how they ended things, at all. I just wish the mist was scarier. This movie isn't really about the mist, but about the reaction of the people trapped in the mist. The mist is just in the background for most of the middle part of the movie. I just found the stupidity of the people trapped in the mist as severely annoying.

I know Stephen King stories are more about human nature, that the real monsters are inside humans and not what lurks in the darkness/mist and it works for so many of his other stories but this film didn't feel as in depth or as insightful as his other stories. This time, instead of the characters coming across as monsters, they just came off as idiots.

The main character, the guy, is also an atrocious actor in this.

I wish they kept the monsters mysterious instead of showing us, the special effects kind of ruin the whole deadly, dangerous vibe of the mist, that it would have been better off if we never really saw the monsters. That the monsters should have been kept shrouded with only tiny parts being reveal and the rest was just left to our imagination.

It's not completely awful, when there is a fog rolling in near me, I wonder if anything creepy will pop out of the fog.
