Carrie is a remake of classic horror film by the same name which came in 1976. The story is actually adapted from the Stephen King’s 1974 novel by the same name Carrie. The film revolves around a girl named Carrie who has some sort of power, which she herself is unaware of initially. Movie named Chronicle did a good job for the films of similar genre, here Carrie is not that good. Perhaps, the film also seems to be limited by its plot. Based on the teenage lifestyle this film is often boring.
Julianne Moore plays an awful, psycho, highly religious mother. Do not know why whether limitations of her role or character but she isn’t as impressive as she could have been. Carrie (Chloe Grace Moretz) a shy, lonely and underestimated girl who studies in High School. The teen life related topic also some sort of packs this film into certain boundary from which it could not come out or being stuck. Carrie every time tries to sort out the issues but every time either her mother or awful friends just takes her to trouble.
Predictable story, sequences does makes you some sort of restless. Although, it’s a true picture of the real life that how awful , egoist and even the normal people treat loners or shy person in our society but still the entertainment is not being extracted from it. There isn’t a good lesson or message for us in the end; probably how to behave in better way by respecting each other’s feelings should have been present.
Yes, the film shows the outcome you might get because of teasing someone unnecessarily, which was a good point. Possibly a better ending should have been how a society should treat the loners in a better way because may be such people are very talented and should get the respect every human deserve. Overall, Carrie could have been with a faster pace and could have ended in much more dramatic way.
