Wonderful and Different - Awesome!
4 June 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I had no idea going into this movie what to expect. I figured, genetic dabbling - should be fun? Instead, it completely threw me for a loop. The best advice is to not read the reviews because they spoil the all the fun. Without saying too much. There is wonderful dark humour, suspense, audacity, and head shaking all wrapped into one really inventive movie. Of course there is outlandishness to the movie but give me a break - I suppose Aliens hissing metal eating acid is perfectly acceptable. I find it completely asinine to expect scientific perfection from a Sci-Fi horror movie as so many negative reviewers seem to need. And really, I thought the movie did a fine job of being plausible. I suspect the naysayers are easily offended people with very pristine ego's - get a life! This was a complete success as evidenced by the positive reaction from the film crowd. Definitely not your average American run of the mill Sci-Fi. Sorry for the lack of details but why ruin a good thing - just go watch and enjoy. Definitely one of the most enjoyable movies I've watch in a long time.
