Plot : On a red eye flight to Boston from LA 10 people wake up to a shock. All the passengers and crew have vanished. When they try to contact the ground they make no connections. They land the plane only to discover that things haven’t changed. But its like the world is dead. No one is there, the air is still, sound doesn’t echo, the food is tasteless. And a distant sound is heard coming closer. A race of monstrous beings bent on their destruction is heading for them, eating everything in sight.
Review : The Langoliers is a mini series, just like It. This miniseries was based off a Stephen King novel, which means that it’s absolutely creepy and very weird. I’m just going to call this a film cause it’s a film just in two parts, so the film was highly enjoyable and can keep the viewers entertained.
The story was pretty interesting and original. I have never seen a movie/miniseries(whatever you want to call it) that was like this one. A plane goes through a time warp and the only people that don’t vanish from the plane happen to be the ones that were asleep, but the plane wasn’t the only weird site of vanishing people, there was nobody on earth and the earth was starting to slowly crumple. It was a very powerful story, bringing an adults childhood fears to eventually come and haunt him now, it was intense. They did a great job with combining mystery and horror to make a very enjoyable story. As for the acting, the cast was good, there was no particular standout actor, but the acting performance from the whole cast was good. They made things believable and really drew me into the film.
Was the film scary? Well it was based off a Stephen King novel, so you should already know this movie is going to creep you out. There were a few kills in this movie and the kill scenes were good, but that’s not really what the movie focused on. We see a lot of creepy scenes, that can scare the shit out of the viewers, but that still isn’t even the best part about this movie. The movie used suspense and mystery too scare the viewer, I don’t know how they did it, but the suspense alone can start too make you feel scared for the viewers. You better run before the langoliers get you!!Overall this was a great movie/miniseries that was highly enjoyable and can keep the viewer on the edge of their seat. The story was excellent, mainly because it was so original. The acting was great and definitely can get you more involved with the film. As for the scares, well the movie has a ton of that, and can really creep the viewer out. If you haven’t watched this movie yet, go watch it. You wont regret it! This is a movie you have to see, it is highly enjoyable and will keep the viewer on edge!!
I give this movie a 8/10
