Great Movie, Very Mysterious, Interesting Ideas.
16 August 1999 | by Scooby-43See all my reviews

I actually have a videotape of "Project X" and that makes me one of the few people that has actually seen this movie in the last thirty years. The movie deals mostly with biological warfare, human genetic manipulation, and mind machine interfacing. It was prophetic in a way that it predicted that Genetic Engineering was a coming thing. Despite it's rather low budget look, Henry Jones as the head scientist gives this movie an aire of reality. The mystery is the meaning of the last message the amnesiac agent sent to the West, a doomsday message, and we are kept guessing to the end what that doomsday message means. A memorable moment is when Karen Summers meets our amnesiac agent and the friendly way she acts and picks him up is something I've often imagined might happen to me someday. No wonder the bad guy kept breaking into her room, he was the only other guy to see it. Another scene that is memorable is when the released anger thing, whatever it was, does whatever it did to the meanie bad guy. That's something I have never forgotten.

Well if you haven't seen this movie, you missed a classic and good luck trying to find it.
