I'd love to tell you this post apocalyptic Bradbury adaptation was enjoyable, but I can't. Good cinematography and production design can't hide a weak script backed by poor acting whose trademark is depressing portension and poorly timed outbursts. Set in a world on the brink of collapse where food is rationed and riots fill the news, Chrysalis fulfills it's promised metamorphosis in such a poor fashion that I can't recommend it.
With barely any setup beyond the vision of the world crumbling, which emanates from an old tv set, and the sickness of Smith (one of the scientists), the story is confined to what looks like a fallout shelter. Little more then steel walls and a bank vault of a door, Smith sneaks outside »
