Customer Reviews

Too bad things didn't go as he or Charlie expected in the end.
Amazon Customer
The film makers (poorly) recreate scenes from the original film for flashback sequences, this doesn't work.

I remember the first Firestarter movie like one of most entertaining stories of Stephen king, with a whole potential to make a sequel, but in this movie have almost nothing to do with the original, the story is predictable and the acting is the worst I seen in months, specially by the guy who play vincent.
Even the soundtrack almost doesn't exist(you can forget the great work of Tangerine dream in the original movie).

.....oh sorry, it was Stephen King rolling in his grave after seeing this awful mini-series/movie!
How anyone involved with this project can even sleep at night is beyond me. Yes, I am a Stephen King fan, and yes I have read the original Firestarter novel. The original Firestarter movie (Drew Barrymore) was reasonable - not fantastic, and not terrible. However, after spotting this movie in the video rental shop, I decided to give it a try, even though it is only one of those "based on the characters movies".
I settled down to watch the movie, and my jaw just dropped and dropped and dropped with disbelief! The main thing which destroyed any credibility the movie may have had was the complete lack of continuity from the first movie - it was like watching a completely different character story really. firstly Charlie's mother died in a completely different way, and the biggest mistake....Rainbird coming back from the dead?? I'm sorry, I don't care what the cheesy dialogue about not being dead said, look at the original movie....Rainbird was D-E-A-D!! By this time, I just had to giggle insanely at each completely unbelievable plot twist which was so inaccurate continuity-wise that the whole film turned into a comedic episode. I mean, I know that they could not have the original Firestarter 1 actors in the flashbacks...but at least make the flashbacks actually fit the correct story/character history guys!!
I have to say that a lot of the Stephen King "based-on" movies (i.e. ones not directly involving Stephen) are patchy to say the least, but if you are a fan of the original, then I have to say stay WELL CLEAR of this laughable attempt to ruthlessly cash in on Mr King's original idea, you'd only be encouraging them to do more.....

Eighteen years after the original movie comes this overlong (over two and a half hours), overblown sequel. Set ten years after the first film ends, pyrokinetic teen Charlie McGee (Margueritte Moreau) is now working as a librarian and is aiming to get her life back together. But unfortunately for her agents are still pursuing her and she finds herself having to trust one of them (Malcolm McDowell) and a loopy professor (Dennis Hopper- who else?) in order to survive. The story is nothing great, but I won't be spoiling anything if I say there are lots of explosions. Pity the rest of the movie isn't explosive.
I found FIRESTARTER 2 to be slow, long and just not very interesting. The film makers (poorly) recreate scenes from the original film for flashback sequences, this doesn't work. Hopper and McDowell deserve far better than this. Moreau gives a good performance too, and for that reason this partially redeems FIRESTARTER 2 from 1- star hell.

After browsing through a few of my fellow critics reviews I need to say this, lighten up. This movie is not that bad considering that it is a sci-fi channel miniseries style film. For a movie that does not need to rely on saying things like (beep) or having tones of (sexual intercourse) that most sequels rely on they really pulled off a treat to the eyes.
I think the problem that most of my fellow critics had was the fact that they read the book, did not like the first film because it did not faithfully adapt to the book. Who cares? The first film was fine and the second one lived up to it's predecessor.
Malcom McDowl played a fine Rainbird as he did an excellent job just like George C. Scott did. The new Charlie (what you expected Drew Barrymore to reprise her role) does a good job as the now grown up Charlie trying to survive as she is still being hunted. Rainbird new plan of more experimented kids provides a deadly advisary for her and overall I would say this movie is worth seeing.
However like I said I am little more liberal with the way I see movies but I honestly think that if one was to give this half a chance they would enjoy it. It is entertaining to watch to those who are willing to give it a chance.

This mini-series falls far too short of being a sequel and is more like a re-make of the original 1984 film. Which might be okay if it was done better and had a satisfying ending, but in this case, this movie goes pear-shaped in the last 20 minutes so that your jaw drops and all you can say is "Huh!?" as Charlie inexplicably goes over to the Dark side and starts killing people in an act that is as pointless as it is brutal. And to what end? Well, not much...

This movie is worth watching for the special effects, and the talented actors, but that's all. If you expect a satisfying resolution to the story of Charlie McGee, this is not quite it. But if all you want is a way to harmlessly kill a few hours, this is mostly painless. Get this movie only if it comes in a cheaper package deal with the original movie; but don't buy it if you are a Stephen King fan hoping to see how little Charlie McGee turns out as this would be a real disappointment and a let-down.
