Reviews

Clive and Elsa are the best scientists in their field. Splicing together the genes of several animals they have managed to bring into existence a new kind of creature, the protein of which could be highly profitable. But experimenting for a large corporate firm doesn’t satisfy their scientific curiosity. After secretly adding human DNA into their formula Clive and Elsa soon realise they may have made a mistake, a big mistake. A mistake that seems to be aging, growing and transforming at an incredible rate. An uncontrollable mistake that’s about to break loose and rip their world apart into tiny pieces.

Directed by celebrated cult director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Cypher, Nothing, Getting Gilliam) and starring Adrian Brody (King Kong, Predators), Sarah Polley (Existenz, Dawn Of The Dead) and David Hewlett (Stargate: Atlantis), Splice is an unforgettable sci-fi horror like nothing you’ve ever seen before or will ever see again.

Format: DVD
Adrien Brody (The Pianist) plays Clive Nicoli, a genetic scientist working on hybridising farm animals in search of proteins and chemicals that can cure human disease. With his lab partner and lover Elsa Kast (Sarah Polley - the similar sci-fi Existenz) they have garnered great success, but genetic testing laws disallow them from adding human DNA to the mix. Frustrated by the limitations of the law, the couple decide to dabble with an embryo containing human DNA along with the usual suite, things start to unravel as the aberration grows into something more than human and the couple scrabble to hide it's existence and cover their tracks...

Many people have remarked on the lack of originality in the plot and with only minor tweaks from the 90's hit Species and they are not far wrong. However Splice has a far better story; as the scientists are continually taken by surprise by the growth & abilities of the subject and react accordingly. At one point, I was literally shouting at the screen begging Brody not to do what he was going to do (harking back to the classic "Don't go in there!!") and this is what enamoured me to this film so much. It's just so plausible - forgetting the impossible biology, forgive that part - and the interaction between the couple and their creation is just so understandable.

The locales & technology are believable if you forget about some of the more dubious scientific aspects of it all (an artificial womb??

I watched this on Prime, and although it wasn't all that great, is wasn't so bad that I didn't end up watching it the whole way through.
Who knows what the creations are at the start, and actually I nearly stopped watching at that point, since they were so uninteresting. However I continued and it got better, to the point of actually looking like it could have got good.

I think that's essentially the problem here. There's a few crap bits at the beginning that nearly make you give up, but the premise is good enough that you are compelled to watch just a little bit further, and indeed, it starts to deliver.
Then sadly, it's as though the creativity level flatlined, and it just becomes the movie Species, which of course, is clearly what this movie is modeled on. Unfortunately, in the same way that Species provides an interesting crossed human DNA experiment, and then gets rather dull and uninteresting once it reaches maturity, so too does this movie.
I feel there was an opportunity here to do a better job with the adult entity than Species did at the same point, but failed to do so. Instead of taking a similar story line and doing it right, it pretty much repeats the formula, and for me at least, fails at exactly the same point and for the same reasons.

Sadly, you've seen it before, and it doesn't do anything better. It's not a terrible movie, it's just not good either. I probably should just have quit when instinct told me to. The point after which Elsa gets her arm stuck in the artificial womb trying to remove the rapidly expanding foetus because the pressure in the tank is getting to the point that it could kill said foetus.

Recorded this on sky as it was on Film4 the other night, watched it last night and actually really enjoyed it. It instantly throws you into a hectic story of two famous scientists (although you dont get this feeling, instead they come across as a couple of dweebs) who are working for a company which looks to be going bankrupt due to unimpressive research into curing diseases e.g cancer,diabetes etc. This is probably the only knowledge the film gives you about the company.

Anyway these two scientists deside they want to mix human DNA with DNA from many other animals to see what happens basically. What they get is some dog looking thing with horse legs with a growth rate of about 2 years a week I think the lady says. Slowly through the film "dren" (they name it) adapts into a half human, half horse legged creature. Its intelligence and curiosity soon develop very quickly as it becomes more mature. Anyways after raising this creature as there child things start to go pearshaped in terms of there relationship and "drens" sanity at being stuck in a barn for fear of been discovered by there employer (who has no idea).

This film is certainly worth the watch, my review isnt the most exciting but if you get some spare time, its deffo a film to see before you die.

Story 8/10
Acting 7/10
Alienish effects 9/10

Format: DVD
Not as sexy as "Species". In fact I really didn't find the hairless human hybrid, even when naked, sexy at all. A couple splices genes and creates a new species of globs they call Fred and Ginger. The globs are created to produce proteins etc. to enhance animal livestock. The inventive couple discovers they could splice human DNA and create a new species in order to cure human genetic diseases. The corporation forbids them from such an experiment so they go underground to do it. The woman, Elsa (Sarah Polly, slightly mentally unstable) uses her own DNA to create a creature which in the interest of time develops very rapidly. The infant looks like something out of Lynch's "Eraserhead". Eventually they have to move the human hybrid to a farm where it is cared for by Elsa and her boyfriend Clive (Adrian Brody).

The movie is intellectually interesting, but at the same time has poor characters. I thought I was going to adore this movie from reading the box, but alas, I did not as the stupidity of the characters got in the way.

The F-bomb is dropped a few times. Human hybrid nudity and sex including one rape.

Worth a view, if you keep your expectations low.
