Trivia

The production was broadcast live to mirror A for Andromeda (1961). The same was true of The Quatermass Experiment (2005), which was a remake of The Quatermass Experiment (1953). Both A for Andromeda (1961) and The Quatermass Experiment (1953) are acclaimed BBC science fiction serials which are largely missing from the archives. See more »

What a load of rubbish!
28 March 2006 | by gray4See all my reviews

This is a totally pointless remake of the 40 year old TV series that launched Julie Christie. No such luck this time round. The film opens with a completely irrelevant rock-climbing scene and then deteriorates. There is just enough to hold some interest in the early scenes, set in an unrealistically empty government research laboratory, with just four scientists - evidence of BBC cost-cutting? All the cash seems to have gone on one special effect.

But when the military appear, the whole storyline collapses. Even the acting is wooden, with good actors such as Jane Asher and Tom Hardy unable to rise above the poor material they have to perform with. The risible debates - good scientist against wicked soldier, human against alien, risk-taking biologist against cautious computer scientist - are couched in the crude terms of a 1950s American B-movie. Before the end - no spoilers but utterly predictable - the only question I'm left with is "why am I wasting my time watching this rubbish?"
