Neither loved or hated it
23 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In fact while I really admired what The Genesis Code tried to do, I had a somewhat mixed view on it. For me, while it is not a movie worth a perfect 10, it is nowhere near bad enough to warrant a 1. I thought the production values were quite good, looking almost real at times(with the exception of moments of monotonous photography), and while stereotypes I did find myself sympathising with the lead characters and the priest, particularly Blake. Logan Bartholomew and Kelsey Sanders are very likable in the lead roles with a sweet chemistry and Jerry Zandstra also acquitted himself nicely. There are however a number of things that let The Genesis Code down. The concept was good and really quite ballsy, but the execution of it seemed rather muddled. The script is rather talky and often doesn't seem to know what it's talking about which is likely to confuse people like it did me. Where The Genesis Code is going to cause polarisation(and I can see through the reviews and the useful votes that there is already some going on) is how people are going to find it thought-provoking and how many are going to find that it talks down to them. For me, I can see both sides, I thought there were some decent ideas that later were poorly explored or convoluted in execution. The story is also confused, eventually does get tedious- sadly a lot of the movie does drag on and on- and even manages to short-circuit the initially touching love story to falling flat. Blake's heartache with his mum was actually quite affecting though. Actors like Ernest Borgnine, Louise Fletcher, Lance Henrikssen et al. immediately show some kind of promise, but a number of them only have a couple of lines or have appearances that would class as a walk-on. They're fun to spot and do what they can with what they have, but they deserved much more. In conclusion, a good idea that came across as muddled yet well-intentioned, making it a movie I neither loved or hated. 5/10 Bethany Cox
