Atom User Reviews for Doctor Sleep
#19 will forever be etched into my head. That scene left me shaking with tears pouring down my face.. Poor baseball boy...
another film well delivered and great ending! go and watch this everyone
Do yourself a favor and watch it! I loved it, it was insanely intense from beginning to end!!
Just need to see it! That’s all I can say!
"Doctor Sleep" is an excellent adaptation of Stephen King's novel that manages to stay true to Kubrick's "The Shining" and King's latest novel. The tension is fantastic and the story plays out wonderfully showing us the trauma of Danny's post Outlook Hotel life while introducing a new character whose life will be invariably intertwined with Danny's
it took too long to get started
Whew! Doctor Sleep was a helluva film! Mike Flanagan's direction was perfection. It was smart and creepy and sad. I saw it on Friday and I'm still buzzed about it. The scene with the "Baseball Boy" was insane! Ewan McGregor was a good Danny Torrance. He played him equal parts broken and redemptive. Rebecca Ferguson was downright chilling as Rose the Hat. The standout is Kyliegh Curran as Abra Stone. She was great! This was a really good sequel to a great film.
long drawn out..not even scarey
A little bummed Jack Nicholson wasn’t playing jack
Not what I expected. The original was far more the better movie
Very well done with some interesting elements shiwn, but never explored
Terrific cast with top-notch acting. Actor Kyliegh Curran was very talented and hold her own with the older actors.
It's a verrrrryyy slow start, give it some time. once it gets started, it's a roller coaster ride. If you haven't seen its prequel "The shining " I highly recommend doing that before coming to see this. You'd understand many of the references made.
really good!!! I recommend it but watch the first one ( The Shining)
extremely confusing from the get go. no real explanation on anything character wise other than the little boy from the shining. This is Highly not recommended as a go see whatsoever. save your money
Great movie with a great cast, can't recommend enough
A slow start, but I think that's what made me care about the characters more and be impressed by villains. My only complaint is the last 5 minutes felt like forced nostalgia, when there was plenty camo's beforehand.
the shinning All time favorite movie..continuation
Best movie ever man
Definitely I must watch .
If you love “The Shining” as much I do then you’ll really like this movie. It’s got the same kind of pacing and it builds up to a satisfying ending. I’m going to go see this again and will own it on Blu-ray.
not a horror movie, more like telling a story
Worth the price of admission!
Great sequel with a great cast. Only wished they cgi or got better actors to play the mom and dad again.
I gave it 4 stars. It was way better than I was expecting. Very glad I went to see it. I just wished Jack Nicholson made a real apparence.
Not a good movie at all. Parts of it were ok, but it was mostly just a jumbled up cheese fest.
Awesome sequel! Love it!
Really good just takes feels so long cause of the backstory
Worthy sequel to one of the best movies of all time!
Dont go see it without watching the shining 1st or you'll be lost!!! For a sequel 39 years later it was pretty good
Great mix of prior material with a new twist to the story.
Good movie but couldn't handle a couple scenes that I can personally relate to. #bringmeganhome
Good movie, better without the gruesome violence to children.
WATCH THIS MOVIE OR ELSE
If you read the book you’ll be disappointed in the movie.
Good movie. kinda long. Some good scenes. Some boring scenes. Overall 4 stars in my opinion.
Little slow and long
Great follow up to The Shining!
Best movie we've seen
I understand why they did what they did,but a wee bit closer to the book would have been great.
was a great sequel from start to finish
Dr Sleep was kind of like science fiction, as much as horror. Kids with special powers, like Akira or Looper. But it spent more time trying to be horror, so the sci-fi stuff wasn’t as developed as it could have been. Pretty entertaining and interesting plot, but nothing like The Shining film.
Serious horror flick. Liked the acting, originally, unfolding of plot. Disliked how the threat felt tame, didn't go dark enough. They let off on the gas when they should've stomped on it
Awesome and creepy
Good movie, scary
This was a VERY GOOD WELL THOUGHT OUT MOVIE!! Only thing that i didn’t like was the look a like Jack Nicholson ugh but overall a great movie!!!! Check it out! Don’t have any preconceived notions about this movie...just enjoy it!! 👍🏾👍🏾
Flanagan brings enough smarts and soul to the flawed, fascinating Doctor Sleep that he manages to escape The Shining’s shadow mostly unscathed.
Like HBO’s new Watchmen series, Flanagan’s Doctor Sleep doesn’t simply rehash its source material, and instead uses its characters, setting, and themes in smart and novel ways.
It doesn’t have Jack Nicholson, Stanley Kubrick or even much of the Overlook Hotel, but Rebecca Ferguson and other good actors provide some shine of their own in Doctor Sleep, a drawn-out and seldom pulse-quickening follow-up to The Shining that still has enough going on to forestall any audience slumber.
