Keeps you on your seat...
18 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

First of all... The movie is DISTURBING! But it has a very unique sense of eroticism and curiosity. The creature is unlike any other thing i've ever seen. The plot is a little usual but it guarantees to keep you on your seat until the end of the movie. The acting was decent and i think the casting is well done, especially Adrien Brody as Clide and Sarah Polley as Elsa. Brody really suited the role because of his kinda nerd looking face with a little curious in it and Polley was just the kind of actress who makes you feel what she feels during the movie. I think what the movie is lacking is outdoors. We don't see really much sun or anything during the movie which makes you darken inside a little. Overall it's a great movie which makes you satisfied at the end. I can GUARANTEE you will love it if you're into sci-fi. I give this movie 7/10 but this is my first review anyways.
