The movie follows the book very well. Usually I prefer it when a movie attempts to be true to the book, except when the book is written by King. King is an excellent author, but his books do not translate to film very well.
The Dead Zone is a prime example of a great book that made a boring movie. There isn't enough character development to make you care what's going on. This is one case where they should have focused on one aspect of the book and left the rest out.
Christopher Walken is the one reedeming factor in this movie. There is one scene where Walken gets angry and you catch a preview of some of his future roles. If you're a Christopher Walken fan then that one scene is worth the price of the DVD.
