Product Description

Product Description

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.

I’ve just watched ‘Splice’ for the second time. The first time I saw it, I hired it on DVD. After that viewing, I bought it and have now seen it again. So, basically, I do think it’s a good enough film to watch more than once. However, now I’ve decided to write a review, no sooner have I logged on to see what other people thought, did I read another review’s title saying something like, ‘Good beginning, not so good end.’ That pretty much sums up my thoughts on the film.

I enjoyed the first two thirds, but I didn’t feel that it fell apart towards the end. I would definitely say that it’s worth watching for the most part. Adrian Broody and Sarah Polley play a couple of scientists who create a creature in a lab, but, in the tradition of all mad scientists, they take things a little too far. In this case they even take their creation home with them and it grows into quite an interesting beast.

You can probably guess that their new ‘addition’ to their family is hardly a glowing success (otherwise it would be a pretty dull film!), so I won’t say too much. It’s a sort of sci-fi/horror film that does its best to throw in a few moral dilemmas that scientists have to face when it comes to how far they take their work in the lab.

What makes it worth watching are the two leads. In what could have been just another B-movie the cast elevates it to something a little more. They have good chemistry and their acting talent certainly makes the script better than your average slasher flick. Then you have the creature itself. Yes, for its infancy it is computer generated. And you probably would be forgiven for thinking that the effects might look a bit ropey. Actually, they’re pretty good.

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??

There is an old saying which I always adhere to..."If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" Eons of years experimenting with gene combinations has given Nature a one-up on humanity. So, why is it that we find ourselves delving into realms better left alone? SPLICE is an interesting and perhaps a more cerebral look at the us+them quandry. What is wrong with our species that we have an inate need to "fix" stuff? Often, this works to our general betterment.....then, there are the times we should have left well-enough alone!

I am a fan of scifi and the "alien" possibilities. In Splice the alien DNA is ours plus other Earthly genes. Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody make a believable couple of ambitious scientists desperately attempting to find a new protein and achieve auspicious merit in the genetics field. Having a corporate timeline nipping at their heels, Clive and Elsa go beyond the point of ethical acceptability and create a new human hybrid. Dren is a quasi-human being of dubious character within an ever-changing form.

Watching the interaction of the scientists attempting to cope with the fallout of their experiment is fascinating. At some point, we must confront ourselves and ask what we would do in this situation. Not only is there conflict between Elsa and Clive, but as things progress also between Dren and her creators. How are we to cope with the unknown? At what point do we pull the plug? What makes us human? What makes us inhuman? Ethics....when did they disappear in the race for glory and/or money?

Splice is not a slasher movie. It takes the scenario and runs with it to some places we would rather never go! This is a thinking person's storyline. If you are so inclined, it makes you ponder where the future of science is headed. Are we ready for the eventualities?
