Charlie McGee is a happy, healthy eight-year-old girl. Normal in every way but one: she has the power to set objects alight with just one glance. It is a power she does not want. It is a power she cannot control. And, each night, Charlie prays to be just like every other child. But there are those that will do anything in their power to find her, control her and destroy her. Will she have the power... to survive? Adapted from the Stephen King best seller, Firestarter stars Drew Barrymore in her first post E.T. film role and boasts an all-star cast including Martin Sheen, George C. Scott and Heather Locklear. With an atmospheric score from Tangerine Dream and amazing special effects and stunts from the team who worked on Star Wars, E.T. and Raiders of the Lost Ark, Firestarter is a dazzling, pyrotechnic thriller.

Even after all these years the special effects still hold their own and there are decent performances from all the principal actors, but the star of the show is George C. Scott. His performance as "Rainbird" is simply excellent and he owns every scene he's in.
There is a sequel to this, but like most sequels it is best avoided.
This particular film was made on a shoestring budget so suffers as a consequence. Nevertheless, its a good story and well acted.
