A daring synthetic biologist, after a car accident kills his family, will stop at nothing to bring them back, even if it means pitting himself against a government-controlled laboratory, a police task force and the physical laws of science.
In the vein of other richly depressing worlds created in cinema, this movie can bring you to real sadness. A man loses his family... Darkness... Obsession... Serious mood.
From start to finish I felt the weight. I found his characters solution to be smart and eventually heroic, yet the darkness never left the screen.
Like "Black Moon Rising" "Runaway" "Terminator 2" "Lawnmower Man" and "Brainscan" .... This film will really pull you in with the cold dark mood. If you connect with that then you will see a piece of high art that only a few films can become, where the story is so real and close to life because the "fiction" of the story is truly so close to our world that it comes across more as a documentary than a fantasy.
Acting was great. Lighting was the real star... Or rather lack of it.... Use of shadows was top form. The logic of science was present. And the driven pulse of a desperate man fueled the scenes... The ending was worth the wait.
