I actually like the changes that Kubrick made. It's nothing like the book and that's ok. Adding the maze was a great metaphor and nice visual touch not to mention the added potential for tension. The problem is in the word potential. It's a horror movie! Build some tension and add some scares for gods sake! This movie is almost two and a half hours long. And for the most part nothing happens. When something does happen it's over before it can get scary. Seriously, the most frightening thing that happens to Jack is that he kisses a naked old woman.
It's not because this movie is boring or anything, it's just that almost everyone calls this "thing" a classic or a masterpiece. I mean, COME ON. The film completely destroys everything that was wonderful about the book. The acting is terrible. The wife and the kid is annoying, Jack Nicholson is terrific of course, but turning from a psychopath to an homicidal psychopath isn't what I call character develepmont. The rest of the movie is filled with shots of the hotel, creepy occurences that are neither discussed nor mentioned afterwards, a bad and confusing script and finally it ends with a close-up shot of a photograph that eventually leads to these secret messages or meanings that are supossedly hidden throughout this whole movie. Also even back then it wasn't well received (It was nominated for 2 Razzies)
This movie was great and the acting of Jack Nicholson in this movie was mind blowing,I admit that it isn't a very scary movie but it's a quite good movie to watch and people don't much about this movie about other movies - zxm

What "countless waves of hype overload"? And Pixar had nothing to do with this movie, Disney themselves made it using Marvel characters.
Honestly one of the dumbest movies I've ever seen. Hated every minute of it, not including the countless waves of hype overload
This movie is too cliche. Lost respect for Pixar after this flopV1 Comment

To be honest I really hate this movie. It's so boring and cheesy piece of crap. Lazy writing.

Like almost every Alfred Hitchcock movie too overrated. All his movies had bad special effects and bad camera techniques and the lightning effects in all his movies were made like they were the work of some amateurs. The only thing is that a few movies had a really good script ( not many! ) and that's the only reason why he is so estimated with some movie fans. And as for " Vertigo ", this is one of his boring films that are too overrated. He is just one of the most directors of all time and besides " Vertigo " there are many other movies he made that are equally too overrated.V3 Comments
Boy movie industry people are out of ideas.
A " feel good " movie and a very good one. Ellen Page gives ( as always ) a top performance. Doesn't belong here!
