Silly TV movie
18 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

THE DARWIN CONSPIRACY is a very silly TV movie indeed, one that adopts the principle of human evolution and super DNA for its own ridiculous ends. There are shades of both RAIN MAN and THE LAWNMOWER MAN in the tale of a mentally challenged baseball fan who finds himself injected with some super DNA serum (discovered in an ancient body in the ice) and becomes this genius who escapes and is pursued by government forces.

It's as ridiculous as it sounds, and the limitations of the TV movie budget are nowhere more apparent than here. The calibre of the acting is completely below par, with nobody putting in anything approaching a decent performance. Many of the scenes are completely ridiculous, like when they bring in an ill-advised telekinetic aspect to the narrative (the 'hubcap attack' is incredibly bad). My favourite bad moment, though, is when a super-intelligent chimp steals a car and goes on a rampage - hilarious stuff.

This nonsense was written by none other than Glen A. Larson, creator of TV fare like THE FALL GUY and BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, but it's fair to say it's probably his worst effort. Dutch director Winrich Kolbe had decades of experience behind the camera so you wonder why he didn't produce a better product.
