Solidly enjoyable TV sci-fi
23 October 2014 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

This is an enjoyable made-for-TV sci-fi movie. It concerns that old staple of the genre - experiments going awry. In this case we have a new experimental drug that induces pregnancy to incredibly fast speeds. It is illegally used on a woman and she then violently births a baby girl. The child is left secretly in a young whiz kid scientist's lab and she then proceeds to grow at an alarming rate, living her life-cycle over the course of one day. The scientist subsequently tries to avert the aging process, while falling in love with her.

The idea of this film is very simple indeed but its simplicity is used well to tell a straightforward, yet interesting story. As is to be expected, there are immoral, greedy business people behind the use of the drug and this creates a conflict for the good characters to overcome. But much more interesting was the moral dilemma that the young scientist has to deal with, in having the utterly unnatural situation of becoming attracted to the young woman who a few hours ago he was effectively fathering. What helps is that it's all acted and scripted well. There are obviously a few aspects that stretch credibility a little – such as it is quite convenient for the film that the girl seems to go through her very attractive young woman stage for a seemingly disproportionately longer period than any other part of her life cycle! But, in all honesty, this sort of stuff doesn't matter very much at all and never gets in the way of the themes and dramatics that the film is most interested in presenting.
