Carrie 2013 Movie Review

Based on the best selling novel by Stephen King and a remake of the old classic movie Carrie 2013 brings the movie to the screen with the help of modern special effects.

So what was the movie like, well I have seen alot of movies lately that where a real let down and although Carrie 2013 is not a 10 out of 10 movie its certainly very enjoyable to watch and makes great use of modern special effects.

Coming from Stephen Kings mind its always due to be a great story but with a good casting of Chloe Grace Moretz as Carrie it brings a real feel for the character, im a big fan of Chloe Grace Moretz she is a great young actor who already has brought us many brilliant movies such as Kick-Ass 1 and Kick-Ass 2 as Hit Girl and also Let Me In another brilliant remake movie.

Im happy to say im not usually a fan of remakes, sometimes I think movies should just be left alone but with all the advances in technology the special effects used to show off Carrie’s powers it really adds some wow to the film and helps you think good on the girl.

Julianne Moore does a great job of the playing the mother Margaret White and adds some real deph to the story.

With all the movies out lately I would certainly say this is well worth a watch and I my final rating of the film would probably be 7 out of 10.

I think the ending could have been a little better but I really did love the whole Prom scene was really well done and I would watch this film again and buy the dvd.

Im sure with most films many book fans will say it does not live up to the Stephen King book but the big screen cant always match our own imagination.

Enjoy and Catch you for another movie review soon.
