Critic Reviews:

...remaking [Firestarter] without adding anything particularly new or making it scarier just leaves it defenseless, and feeling wholly unoriginal in the mutant landscape despite it being one of the first stories of its kind.


Scott Teems’s drearily perfunctory script is at least not as howlingly bad as his script for Halloween Kills, a small mercy... No one here seems to know what they’re doing and, more importantly, why. A strong contender for 2022’s most pointless movie.


Firestarter is at an unfortunate disadvantage as it must outdo several novels, films, and television shows that have dealt with similar themes and characters... Firestarter is more like Pet Sematary and Carrie, a dull, exhausting remake that doesn't do anything new.
