3.5 out of 10 Worth Watching!
A member from Dublin, 02 Aug 2011
At first I wondered what the hell Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley were doing in a film like this, but it turned out to be an unusual and engaging watch...quite bizarre, but as another reviewer pointed out, it kept in touch with an underlying humanity to make this a cut above other such films, rather than having it appear as an out and out monster/ disaster flick.

Not great movie at all. I do like Adrian Brody as an actor but this was not his finest hour (having sex with his creation / adopted daughter) - most odd. would not recommend

What's it about....
Clive and Elsa are a pair of brilliant scientists whose cutting-edge experiments in genetic engineering make them superstars in their field. As devoted to their careers as they are to one another, they start conducting unauthorized experiments with new animal species that show great promise. Drunk with their god-like powers, they introduce human DNA into one of their creations, producing a creature that is greater than the sum of its parts: a rapidly developing animal/human...
