OK movie. A bit too much religiosity but maybe it was supposed to help the plot. The plot sure needed some help 'cause it was all over the place. I'm not a follower of King. He's written a few good stories but he churns them out so fast half of them aren't even good. Anyway, was pretty bored by the story but it's ok for a one time watch.

A really good rendering of one of Stephen Kings darker tales this movie is a must see for all King fans,8/10.

ok movie, Ron Pearlmans character is awesome, the rest of the cast are absolutely terrible actors (especially the annoying little boy). Some scary moments, cheesy acting throughout. Still worth a watch 6/10

Ron Perlman = LEGEND

Good movie! Exceptional I thought for a made-for-tv! 'It' was another excellent movie that translated well to screen. However, Desperation better captured just how 'chilling' the novel really was. 'It' was very good up until the end but having read the book, I just felt that it didn't capture the climactic ending as the novel did. Guy who plays the sherrif in Desperation was REALLY GOOD! Don't think they could have chosen a better actor to play that sicko.....TACK!!

Pretty good movie, good cast 3/5

As I've said before, some of King's books adapt well to the screen, other's not so much. This wasn't one of the better efforts, but it wasn't the worst, either. I've always thought that this would've been better if elements from it's mirror book 'The Regulators' would've been incorporated and then done as a mini-series. King's books aren't known for being short and sweet and trying to make them fit into the time allotted format of a film, is just a bit on the hard side. Still, I did enjoy this movie. Production values were good, Ron Perlman was just wonderful and the screenplay itself, was okay. 3/5 stars. (Added to my 'From Page To Screen' playlist.)

Sorry I wasted my time on this, honestly. Not suspenseful, not well written, poorly acted (even with some great actors in the cast), not even decent exposition. Bad all around.

This was another decent Mick Garris directed Stephen King movie, though certainly not the best by a mile. Ron Perlman is ridiculous as the villain and Steven Webber and Tom Skerrit do well enough as the good guys. 5/10

I'm sorry to say it but I loved the book. So much better than the movie. This was made for TV so guess what...It's second class in everything...Too bad cause I like Perlman. Read the (very good) book. Don't waste your time with the movie. Bad acting and bad directing...If you like just a little bit the stories of S.King SKIP THIS MOVIE. 2/5

Most films of a book dont live up2 that book,just because its hard 2 get so much detail in2 a 1/half-2hour film.I liked this film because it still manages 2 pull u in2 that world.8/10

While I was watching Desperation, I felt like there is narrator hidden inside characters, like there is just one character, and like the story is being written while the movie is playing, same thing in The Langoliers.

Ok they made a movie out of desperation but did they ever do one out of the regulators? If they did, i'd like to watch that.
