Andrew and Vicky McGee met while earning money as guinea pigs for an experiment at college. The experiment was shrouded in suspicion and mystery, and seemed to be related to psychic abilities. The two were married and had a daughter Charile, who has the ability to start fires by merely thinking about it. Naturally, the government takes a great interest in Charlie, and operatives from the secret department known as "The Shop" want to quarrantine and study her. (imdb)

Underrated, I feel. Barrymore is very good in it, and she can freaking set stuff on fire and shoot fireballs with her mind. Like John T. once said: "Ain't it cool?"

Most of the movie is very dull. It's disappointing because the cast is stellar, there's just not a ton for them to do with the material.

(Disclaimer: This is an admittedly biased review, because Firestarter is one of my favorite King books) No, it's not on the same level as some of the best King adaptations (The Shining, Carrie, Misery), but it's firmly in the second tier for me with films like Christine/Pet Sematary/Cujo. There's plenty of cornball dialogue and a shitty 80s score, but the relationship between the two main characters is convincing enough, and the supporting cast (C.Scott and Sheen mostly) are damn good.

The acting in this 80's horror flick was much worser than previous I saw lately (Cat's Eye). The story kind of work somehow till the half of the movie, but the latter part was pure pain. The story and pacing was lost for good.
