a5c7b9f00b This is a thriller about a child who has the amazing ability of pyrokinesis, and her father, who also has the ability make people do what he wants. A secret government agency known as "The Shop" led by Captain Hollister and John Rainbird plot to kidnap the duo for testing their abilities. Can this power and the love of her father stop this sinister agency before all hell breaks loose?
Andy McGee met his future wife Vicky while they were earning money by participating in an experiment in which they were given a dose of a chemical called LOT-6, while they were in college. Andy and Vicky went on to get married and they now have a nine-year-old daughter named Charlene "Charlie" McGee, who has the ability to start fires at will (pyrokinesis) as a result of the experiment that Andy and Vicky participated in. The experiment also gave Andy the ability to make people do what he wants. A secret government department known as "The Shop" did the experiment, and now The Shop, run by Doctor Joseph Wanless, has been pursuing Andy and Charlie, even killing Vicky in order to get her out of the way. Wanless and his organization want to study Andy and Charlie, then kill them, and The Shop has sent a sniper named John Rainbird to find Andy and Charlie. What Wanless and his group underestimate is what Andy and Charlie are willing to do to protect each other.
I suggest audiophiles who loved Tangerine Dream's music in FIRESTARTER should go out and track down the soundtrack album that's been out fifteen years ago. Otherwise, this stands as almost plain forgettable. The acting, plot, and script makes this a long and painfully ludicrous experience. It needed much more smoke to fry this picture whole, but a very young Drew Barrymore saved her second or third film from a total crisp. Best remembered as "Gertie" from E.T., the young actress pulled off some impressive talent that would put to shame a wasted cast of familiar actors including Martin Sheen and Art Carney. Standing in front of the camera with special effects blowing her hair is one thing, and it was the best any child star could do at the time, but this was higher ground for Barrymore that later follows several more movies to date. Don't always take it from her, though, unless you're dying for more Drew. It's the fact that FIRESTARTER is an uninspiring example of a Stephen King thriller.
The script for Firestarter is a tolerable adaptation of the novel. It keeps intact the major plot elements, story sequence, settings, characters, and much of the key dialogue. A few minor changes don&#39;t affect the story, though untidied remnants of excised plot and characters muddle it a bit. Few novel adaptations are as faithful, at least as to structure.<br/><br/>That tepid compliment is the only one I can pay Firestarter. The script adaptation is faithful to what it includes, but what it omits leaves the story leaden. The movie has no use for the novel&#39;s depth and finesse. Character depth is absent. Relationships among the characters are cartoonish. The true terror of black-ops government is reduced to &quot;People from The Shop are bad.&quot; The science of pyrokinesis, telepathic mental dominance, and pharmaceutical brain alteration -- key elements of the novel&#39;s power -- remain only in bits of dialogue.<br/><br/>There&#39;s no finesse from the cast either. Their performances, even George C. Scott&#39;s, are uniformly dead. Martin Sheen hadn&#3
