....God wanted a sacrifice from his followers to take old ambulatory guy out....I've read the book about three different times. i've watched my DVD mini series many more. There are many things I enjoy about the story.
But i really don't get the ending.
Why have the characters take a Stand at all if God ends Flagg?
Mr. King says he wanted yo write an epic like Lord Of The Rings, but in lord Of The Rings it was the characters that put an end to Sauron and the One Ring, not an all powerful deity.
That really is my only contention about the book and mini series.
But Matt Frewer, formerly Max Headroom (also a pun btw) did a heck of a job on portraying the Trashcan Man, and I also liked Gary Sinise in it and many other performances. Mr. Frewer was the biggest surprise for me though.
Gary Sinise was also in the film adaption of The Green Mile.
I once thought the actress Andy McDowell was in it, playing the lady who shot at Nick and Tom, but apparently I am wrong on that.Miss Shawnee Smith did a good scary too.
