Reviews

An epic adaptation of John Wyndhams best-selling iconic novel, which brings his terrifying creation of carnivorous plant species to life in a CGI extravaganza, supported by a sensational all-star cast that includes Dougray Scott, Joely Richardson, Brian Cox, Eddie Izzard, Vanessa Redgrave and Jason Priestley. In this electrifying thriller, social order collapses as humanity confronts a double catastrophe. The majority of people have been blinded in a freak solar storm leaving them at the mercy of opportunists who still have their sight. Meanwhile the Triffids are evolving and advancing on the towns in search of human prey. In the face of total human annihilation, it is down to a select few to take a stand against mankinds deadliest adversary, a foe with a fatal sting and an unquenchable taste for human flesh.

What's The Story.
Social order collapses as humanity confronts a double catastrophe as the majority of people have been blinded in a freak solar storm leaving them at the mercy of opportunists who still have their sight.

Meanwhile the Triffids are evolving & advancing on the towns in search of human prey & in the face of total human annihilation, it is down to a select few to take a stand against mankinds deadliest adversary, a foe with a fatal sting & an unquenchable taste for human flesh.

Timelord Thoughts.
I personally enjoyed this two part 2009 adaptation of John Wyndham's novel which has a decent cast of actors & solid production values while there is several inconsistencies with the script it does capture the essence of the book & contains some great moments of tension & drama.

Well to follow the novel ad-hoc, would've only elicited yawns like a lot of remakes these days. So the 21st CEntury has a lot of bang for it's buck - introducting extra characters and adding wild and random elements. Visually it's very watchable, but my only problem with it is the script and the plot holes. For instance how did Jo not go blind when she was supposedly reporting the event from a high building. And how did the character of young Susan not only slip out a supposedly locked and guarded door to plant the Ipad to attract the Triffids - but also actually manage to sneek back in undetected. And yes, the wide eyed villian and the deranged Mother Superior weilding power in the name of God are cliched. As such the performances are generally weak where the actors look a little lost trying to sink their teeth into better material. Maybe Eddie Izzard had it right. Just stretch out your lines with long pauses interdispersed with odd glances. It won't say it's bad bad. But had the script and plot been more tight to actually produce logic, motivation, character and tension, the series might've matched the money obviously spent on it and been regarded as a good twist on an establised classic.

This is a very good interpretation of the classic story. However it does move to quickly perhaps. All this happens over weeks not days in the book and first two versions. Still this is a very well made version that sci fi fans can enjoy. In fact all three versions are very good imo. This one was shot in hd and looks outstanding. The 1980 version is superior in some regards perhaps as far as dread and setting goes but this one is a top notch special effects version. The 1960's version was very good too in different ways, but this one is worth owning just because it's so well done effects wise.

A wonderful story ruined by the modern malaise of dependence on CGI, with no real sense of pace, and a terrible and incomprehensible performance by 'comedian' Eddie Izzard. There was none of the fascist allegory either, rendering this utterly scare-free bore-fest completely spurious. Watch the 1980 version instead, the effects might be ropey, but it's eerie, well written and engrossing.

The Day of the Triffids Blu-ray Review

Distributor : Showbox Media Group Ltd. (UK)

A couple of years ago there was much talk of the BBC remaking their classic 1981 television series Day of the Triffids. The remake was filmed, then seemed to take an eternity to actually become broadcast. Eventually shown over the 2009 Christmas period, on watching the remake during it's initial broadcast, I was left feeling that it was a reasonable production, but not in the same league as the original.

Having later noticed a Blu-ray release, I decided that it would certainly be worth viewing again and I'm very pleased to report, that although I will always prefer the original series, I have come to realise that this remake, although rather different, is actually very good on it's own merit.

The Blu-ray release from Showbox Media which is not region locked, presents the 2 feature length episodes on one disc, with the option from the main menu to play either the Night One episode or to select Night Two.

On selecting play, the first thing you notice is that the 1080p transfer presented here, is shockingly good. Crisp sharp detail is present throughout, with some of the exterior shots simply looking incredible. Colours are extremely well defined and even dark levels are impressive. For a television series release and considering that the BBC's own Blu-ray releases are usually presented in 1080i, this really looks a lot better than should have been expected.

The audio is no slouch either. The DTS HD 5.1 track sounds powerful and clear throughout. Dialogue is strong and bassy and during the many action scenes which involve Triffid attacks, parts of the audio will have you almost jumping from your seat if you are watching for the first time.
