Immortality - reality check .........
21 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Town where no one ages, folks are kept forever young by drinking water from a magic spring. Along comes Kyle MacLachan and his Son, Joseph Cross. Enamored with the strange behaving residents, they are gradually enlightened to the price one pays for brief immortality. This bland TV movie really goes nowhere beyond the initial idea, and gradually peters out. The town's bizarre method of controlling overpopulation of the potential immortals is beaten to death with several 100th birthday rituals. There isn't enough material here to maintain interest for 93 minutes. As a "Twilight Zone" episode, "The Spring" would have been totally acceptable, but the reality is, as a full length film it is simply too long. - MERK
