Reviews

Nel deserto dell'Arizona viene segnalata la presenza di un meteorite precipitato all'improvviso. Dentro ci sono sconosciute forme di vita provenienti da chissà quali spazi. Ira Kane, già funzionario del governo e biologo, e Harry Block, geologo, giungono sul posto, procedono ad accurate analisi in laboratorio e capiscono di avere di fronte micro organismi che, attraverso rapidi meccanismi di evoluzione, potrebbero diventare un pericolo per la razza umana. Ira e Harry vogliono seguire il 'caso' da soli, ma contro di loro si mettono altri scienziati governativi decisi a gestire la situazione: a guidarli il generale Woodman e la dottoressa Allison Reed. Mentre vanno avanti questi contrasti, gli organismi crescono di misura e dimensione. Quando sono ormai diventati enormi e minacciosi, Ira ed Harry hanno un improvviso colpo di genio per eliminarli: spruzzato in dosi rilevanti, uno shampoo antiforfora ottiene l'effetto di far ritrarre quelle 'cose', che diventano innocue.

This movie is so unpretentious and charming that it will win you over. As other reviewers have pointed out, it may not be the most original movie ever, but originality is hardly the point of "Evolution", so...who really cares.
I've seen this movie a number of times and it has me laughing out loud everytime. The partnership of Duchovny, Orlando Jones and Seann William Scott hits the spot, and you can sense that the actors are really having fun making this movie.
If you enjoyed movies such as "Eight Legged Freaks", "Road Trip" and "Dodgeball" this should be just the movie for you.

Evolution is a lot more fun that its busted summer would-be blockbuster status implies, although like most Ivan Reitman comedies the concept is funnier than the script. For the first half David Duchovny and Orlando Jones have more exposition than jokes to deal with and Julianne Moore is game but is no natural comedienne, especially when it comes to pratfalls, while Ted Levine's clichéd general is a villain too far. But once it hits its stride and the constantly evolving critters that are the real stars of the show start multiplying and threatening mankind with extinction, it's an enjoyable monster mash that even manages to make a joke of its product placement for Head and Shoulders. Like the aliens it's no world-beater, but it's a brisk and enjoyable romp. Nice score from John Powell too.

While DreamWorks US NTSC DVD has a good selection of extras, including audio commentary, deleted scenes and alternate ending, the UK DVD comes up short on extras, with just a making of featurette and trailers .

A meteorite falls to Earth and lands right in the desert at Glen Canyon, Arizona. Two college professors, Dr. Ira Kane and Prof. Harry Phineas Block, take it upon themselves to investigate and mooch around. At the site, they discover worm like insects that are not of this world. Thinking they are on to Nobel Prize type history, they are dismayed when the government takes over the site and shunts them out the way. But as the insects start to evolve in the Earth atmosphere, they take on various shapes and forms of alien creatures. Pretty soon the whole place is over run and the government is at a loss in how to stop them. Enter Ira, Harry, Wayne and Allison to hopefully save the day.

Directed by Ivan Reitman {Ghostbusters 1 & 2}, Evolution is a zany sci-fi comedy that achieves firmly what it sets out to do. Using the available special effects for great rewards, and lashing it in Technicolor, all that remained was to have a cast happy to be in on the joke itself. Up step David Duchovny {revelling in none serious X Files malarkey}, Orlando Jones {getting all the best lines}, Julianne Moore {accident prone} and Sean Wiillian Scott {goofball fireman wannabe}. Backed up by Ted Levine, Dan Ackroyd, Ethan Suplee and Ty Burrell, Evolution is well served right across the cast. Of course they aren't asked to do anything special, but it's not that kind of film. There's enough here for all the family to enjoy, kids will be awed by the array of alien creatures, whilst the adults should be chuckling away at some of the jokes.

If you are expecting real science then you have come to the wrong place, Evolution parodies the sci-fi parodies, and then some. 7/10

By Call me Al TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 30 Aug. 2015
Format: DVD
Evolution is an unpretentious, entertaining, silly movie predicated on the theory of panspermia, which hypothesises that microscopic life exists throughout the universe in a dormant state, trapped in celestial bodies such as meteorites and when ideal conditions occur these tiny organisms may become active initiating the process of evolution. When such a meteorite crashes into the Arizona desert and starts oozing blue liquid containing said organisms college professors Ira Kane (David Duchovny) and Harry Block (Orlando Jones) believe they may be heading for a Nobel Prize for discovering extra-terrestrial life. However due to the rapidity and nature of the evolution and adaptation occurring it soon becomes evident that these alien creatures are a genuine threat to the existence of the human race. Unlike Slither, a SF horror fantasy with touches of humour, Evolution is most certainly a comedy within the context of SF horror and despite the occasional lame sexist joke the fast paced narrative results in a genuinely enjoyable movie, as befits the director of Ghostbusters. The CGI is effective, in particular the scene in the mall with the dragonesque creature, while the resolution of the movie is audaciously unexpected, silly and satisfying.

Most films have a way with one liners at the right moments, but this one really does take the biscuit! I love this film...from the opening scene i was constantly falling out of my seat in fits of laughter.

Firstly i have to add the story is wonderfully simple, to the point and does exactly what it sets out to do...entertain.
the chemistry of the actors involved in this is just as good as 'Ghostbusters', maybe a little unorthodox but it works so well its like a bar of warm soap on a sponge. The standout alone is so much the lightheartedness of the tone of the film which obviously given the PG rating makes it appealing to all of the family.
The acting is top draw, with as i said before, brilliantly timed quirky moments from all actors especially Orlando Jones, who in my opinion steals the show. All in all i fully recommend this to those who have not seen this movie.
