The Dead Zone

The Dead Zone ★★½

A decent film carried mostly on the weight of Cronenberg. Fails to horrify, storyline isn't that intriguing and the characters aren't all that interesting. The style is very Cronenbergian, which is what really makes this film, but overall there is a feeling of creative withdrawal and tedium. Martin Sheen is fine, but doesn't really do anything to sell his performance. Overall it's underwhelming.
