Critic on Splice
Milia from Waterford, 16 Dec 2010
Reflecting a Frankstein theme, but more relevant to the present regarding genetic manipulation and ethics that are an unspearable issue. Very well performed and spliced together film. Suspense without too much gore and a humane feeling prevails with a philosophical undertone which is a nice change. Worth watching as a science fiction thriller/fantasy with an underlying truth of the complexities, possible consequences and accountability of our intervention into nature.

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.

Slick enough, but what was the point?

Like a good few others here reviewing this, I too was hoping for some proper deabte within the film on the ethics of gene splicing and cloning but there is a not a jot of that, just a thriller sci-fi that I felt didn't know itself what it was about.

Inter species sex with the worst sub-standard, Eastenders, melodramatic plotline you can imagine. Horrendous. Might be of interest to budding screenwriters - how not to do it.

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
