Eerie, high-flyin' fun - the story was engrossing, and the movie is a welcome one when I catch it on cable - used to call my drunken, delinquent bud's at the time " the Langoliers"!

This movie was horrible! Not just the acting but the effects were laughable.

Terrific story, very realistic! Acting was great by just about everyone. I was fascinated, especially, by Bronson Pinchot's portrayal of Craig Toomey, since I'd previously only seen him in a comedic role. The story itself was outlandishly eerie yet entertaining for me as a viewer, rather than a "participant". Great work!

I read "The Langoliers" as a short story before I saw the movie on TV (several times now). Both were engrossing and fascinating. A movie version is always great, since it facilitates visualizing what was read. But, with "The Shining", for instance, that didn't hold true as the ending was not exactly the same in both versions.

I've watched this 10 over yrs ago and it didn't leave me since...It's got a great impact on me and my thoughts...on lives elsewhere...and I've just knew about the Parellel theory recently..and think how amazing is Stephen King to create life-shocking genius..

I liked the book, but this movie was a big letdown. Whenever Mr. Toomey came on all I could think of was Balki from Perfect Strangers. The actors were, for the most part, not very good, save the great performance by David Morse. I think the worst performances were the little girl, Dinah, and the writer. The appearance of the Langoliers themselves was hilarious, and the CGI was terrible. If they had made this movie had been made 10 years later, maybe better special effects could have saved it, but for now, it is a much inferior version of the novel.

Loved four past midnight where I read this story before seeing the movie...

I just recently watched this movie again, enjoyed it as much as so many years ago when it come out. I loved the "Mr. Toomey" character & he was as funny as he was awful & sick. I had a hard time with the "lost love" since the one military "spy" man gave his life to wake everybody back up...I was hoping he'd reappear "on the other side" in the airport or something.Great movie..I read Duma Key last year, and just got "Under the Dome" which I find a difficult read due to so many characters to keep up with. Steven is that way though: he does love his characters. Duma Key would make a great movie & I think "Under the Dome" will also, easier than reading it. Keep going Steven, we love you (I am 57 & been reading you, watching your movies since "Carrie"...=)

This was BY FAR my favourite story of King's. It just has something about it that appeals to me.

I love this movie. This is probably my favorite by Stephen King. He is brilliant. All these years and he's still writing. I love the way the last comment stated they wish there was a part two, then just like that PART ll at the bottom, I downloaded it but haven't read it yet, not sure if it is for Langoliers. COOL ANYWAY, Mr. King you ROCk.

Of the batch of SK's stories turned into TV miniseries around this time (Tommyknockers, It, & The Stand) this is one of my favourites (film & story). The acting by all is superb although Dean Stockwell went a bit OTT on the spooky/mysterious author bit IMHO (a bit cheesy sometimes as to make me cringe but forgivable in the context of his role). Having watched 'The Mist' recently (the similarities I felt existed between each) prompted me to dig out my VHS copy and re-hook up my old player. 14 years on it's still a rollercoaster ride of a film.

I have thought about this made for TV movie for several years and couldn't remember the name of it. I remember watching it and how the mystery of what was going on, kept me wondering what was going to happen next. Finally I started researching authors on the internet and there you were and there was made for TV movie. I am wondering if the movie may be available anywhere. I would love to see it. Thank you for keeping us hooked to such great stuff!!

I wathched the movie and read the book.... it was awesome . I love how the time warp is fixed at the end and they end up in a new "zone"
