Trivia

This production was originally broadcast only three weeks before the death of Sir John Mills, who had played Professor Bernard Quatermass in the ITV serial Quatermass (1979). His death leaves Jason Flemyng as the only one of the seven actors to have played the character who is still alive. See more »

Goofs

When they show Victor the film in the hospital, we are looking through the transparent screen towards Victor. But the countdown numbers at the start of the film appear the right way round to us so they'd be the wrong way round for those watching from the other side of the screen. See more »

I tried, I really did
22 August 2005 | by (Birmingham, UK) – See all my reviews

But I just couldn't believe that this was really happening. Where were the isolation chambers? Where were all the medics? Where were the police and the politicians?

If it had been set in the 50s I might have been able to tolerate it, but it had been updated to 2005 and as a result it just looked lame. My suspension of disbelief lasted about five minutes before I started to get annoyed with it. The presence of Indira Varma kept me watching a little longer until I was forced to hit the fast-forward button after about half an hour.

If this had happened today, the crashed rocket would have been surrounded by troops, police, scientists, stripey red and yellow tape, covered with a tarpaulin with filtered air, and no-one would have been allowed near it for at least a week until all possible biohazard and radiation tests had been made.

Just too frustratingly unrealistic for me. Oh - and the soft focus effect all the way through - puhlleeze!!
