When comparing the victim diagnoses, Dr. Noyce states, "If Sylvie breathed rapidly long enough, carbon dioxide would build up in her system and she would become acidotic." This is incorrect. Rapid breathing (hyperventilation) causes carbon dioxide blood levels to decrease, creating alkalosis, which is essentially the opposite of acidosis. See more »
When the capsule of the Scoop Mission returns to Earth and lands in the small town of Piedmont, Utah, it brings a mutant living being and all the population, except a crying baby and an old man with ulcer, dies with clotted blood. A team of five scientists - the leader Dr. Jeremy Stone (Benjamin Bratt), Dr. Angela Noyce (Christa Miller), Dr. Tsi Chou (Daniel Dae Kim), Dr. Charlene Barton (Viola Davis) and Major Bill Keane MD (Ricky Schroder) - are summoned and gathered together in the top secret Wildfire facility. Fighting against time, they try to understand the reason why the old man and the baby survived and research an antidote to Andromeda, the ultimate biological weapon.
I wrote the above summary with the exceptions of the names of Dr. Stone's scientist's team in my review of the original sci-fi classic of 1971. The great pacifist story is basically the same, only longer due to updates in special effects and useless subplots with government conspiracies. I usually hate remakes, but sometimes I find reasonable surprises; but I do not know the objective of this tiresome and totally unnecessary remake. My vote is six.
