I remember the lead overreacting in most scenes, which makes it laughable instead of scary. The car had more personality than the characters present. Pace of the whole film was sluggish though there were a few spooky moments particularly when the car was brought to life. Christine could have been better if it had believable artists, better dialogue and the element of suspense.

Popular car based horror that has the same weakness all Steven King adaptations have; Steven King's ideas are really, REALLY lame. What is scary about an old car, exactly...? Competently executed, but nothing more.

For a movie about a killer car, it could've been much worse. Carpenter manages to squeeze what little tension there is out of the story.

Mediocre Stephen King novel gets Carpentered into a kitsch, silly thriller. Full of memorably daft moments but, overall, hardly worth the effort.

Just like Cujo, this a mediocre Steven King story turned into a mediocre movie. The killer car idea is pretty good and the red Plymouth Fury does give off an aura of evil, but overall there's not too much to get excited about.
