Originally aired as a television mini-series, this all-star filmization of Stephen King's gripping epic of good versus evil chronicles the episodic adventures of a disparate group of people who struggle to reestablish civilization after a man-made catastrophe wipes out most of the world's population. The world abruptly ends when a deadly virus accidentally escapes from a government sponsored biological warfare laboratory. Soon people are dropping like flies from the plague, but a few survive and find themselves strangely compelled to head into the West. Good-hearted people follow the voice of an ancient black woman and head for Boulder, Colorado. Bad people follow the enigmatic Walkin' Dude to Las Vegas. It is only a matter of time before the two sides are forced into a climactic battle over the final fate of humanity.

This movie was very realistic, it is about good and evil and how we fight for our souls. I recommend this movie to anyone who does not believe in the goodness of GOD.

Stephen King wrote the screenplay for the adaptation of his novel by the same name, which originally aired as a mini-series on television. The movie follows the book fairly closely, although there is some lack of character development when comparing the movie (particularly the characters of Fran Goldsmith and Larry Underwood) to the novel. Excellent performances in this movie by the entire (and well known) cast. (Ruby Dee, Rob Lowe, Molly Ringwald, Gary Sinese, etc)

Sometimes expectations are too high on a movie when the book was written that well; this was just terrible. I rented the DVD to it and couldn't even get through the first hour of it before I had to turn if off. The movie (mini-series) adaption of The Stand should offend any Stephen King fan and even Stephen King himself.

The only King movie that adequately portrays the original book. Far more than a 'horror' show, it's an indepth examination of civilization & our reaction to crises.

This was a good movie I like the cast. I saw it a while back and loved it, today I am reading the book and I hope to own it one day. I have ordered it from the web site I like the book so far.

If you can shut the commentaries off the movie is great, should have been removed though

I usually cringe when I find out that someone has tried to make a movie from one of Stephen King's books (I'm still trying to recover from 'DreamCatcher') but The Stand was a surprisingly good adaptation. Ruby Dee as Mother Abigail and Rob Lowe as Nick were superb. Of course there were plenty of things that got changed or deleted altogether but as a whole I really enjoyed it. I'll even go so far as to put it up there with 'Carrie' and 'The Shining' (Stephen King actually hated the movie version of The Shining, the TV movie years later resembled the book alot more). The Stand gets five stars and 2 thumbs up from me!

This is the best movie ever. That's all there is to it.

The book is incredible, and the movie is an amazing adaptation. The casting is great, because, as you will see, you grow very attached to the characters. This movie encompasses all aspects of a wonderful film-action, comedy, romance. This movie stays with you after you're done watching it. It is absolutely amazing- it's worth the time it takes to watch it and then some!

In the screen adaptation of ''The Stand'' Stephen King immediately captures his audience with the escape of a military police officer who has a deadly government created virus with a 99.9% communicability rate. Mix in the devil, going by the name Randall Flag, and you've stumbled into a mini-series with enough realism to keep you thinking ''what if'' and enough of Stephen King's unusual imagination to keep you trying to guess what is coming next. The story unfolds in such a way that you find yourself feeling as though you're in the situation right along with the characters. The movie score and soundtrack only add to the feel of the movie. But with the good we must also take the bad. The story becomes slow and drags a little at times. And seeing as how it was originally a mini-series it is best taken in small doses rather than trying to watch it all in one sitting.
