i loved this book. this was the first stephen king book that i ever read and i loved it from the moment that i started it. now i wonder how good the movie is and if it is anything close to what the book was like.

This Dead Zone was by far the best. Christopher Walken was perfect as Johnny. The remakes suck.

Excellent book. Good movie.

I think this is the best Stephen King adaptation. Aided by the direction of the great David Cronenberg (our best living director), and a phenomenal performance by Christopher Walken, it's a movie that quietly gets under your skin.

How can people say that this is a faithful adaptation to a classic book? This has to be one of the most half-assed Stephen King adaptation that I have ever seen.

thought it was a good movie, but i know they wanted to stay faithful to the novel but i felt it was all crampt together and happening to fast.

I watched the show based of the movie. It's pretty sweet. My dad loves it. They took it off the air a couple months ago on the channel we watch it on and my dad and I are both kind of sad.

Maybe the best King adaptation I've seen...Misery was also fantastic as a film but as I haven't read the book I can't discern its degree of faithfulness. Walken showed great potential in the film and its a shame that he later became such a 'character' actor. Sheen is colorful and fun as Greg Stillson, if a little bloated, as is Herbert Lom as Weizak. I usually despise Mr. Cronenberg in his natural state (obsessed with the disgusting and disturbing) but found he did a capable -- beyond capable, job at 'Dead Zone'. Brooke Adams, however, only annoyed me. There was something very different about her from the Sarah I pictured in the novel and I didn't care for the difference at all. Tom Skerrit in a relatively small part did well and it was good seeing him in a King role again (I had seen him previuously in Desperation in 2005). The final scene was particularly good and it realized my vision of the book almost flawlessly. Bravo, R. King and Mr. Cronenberg. I was also pleased to see that with 'A History of VIolence', Cronenberg returned to a less gory, disturbing style, although that doesn't much relate to King.

 I've seen it as a child, iv'e liked it a lot and i still love it. I think that Christopher Walken as is best role of is carrier.
