My University has an on campus shop that rents DVDs I rented this movie to watch over my Labor Day weekend because I love science fiction films and the storyline seemed interesting.
The writing is terrible, everyone seems to be speaking in a flat tone of voice that is good for public radio, but really bad for a science-fiction action film. At some points during the time the actors lips are moving, but no sound is coming out. The film does bring up some interesting themes -- AIDS virus, poverty, greedy big business -- but the horrible writing means that the film is less exciting then if they had all simply read instructions on how to install my DVD player in ten different language.
The acting is a mixed bag. I enjoyed Chris in the first Highlander film and in Mortal Kombat I. The black police chief, the second scientist to die and the semi-punk rock female partner [Ruth?} were three unknown actors that had talent, if only the script would let them show it off. Chris's female love interest has no acting talent whatsoever and should consider legal action against who promised to teach her how to act.
