Excerpt: A pair of genetic biologists succeed in splicing the DNA of various creatures with that of a human being and the resulting life form begins to take over their lives as they try to hide their secret experiment. Splice is very much in the old “mad scientists play God and reap the consequences” school of horror stories, giving the Frankenstein formula a modern sci-fi spin.
Summary: It seemed interesting at first. I even put aside totally unconvincing and cold, much more buddy than marital relationship between Polley and Brody, for the sake of their curious experiment, expecting to see some important issues raised. But as everything seemed wrong also from the very start, it couldn't develop better either - movie took wrong turn everywhere it could.
Excerpt: The two lead characters, supposedly brilliant scientists Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) take their DNA tampering to the next level by mixing human and animal DNA with disastrous results, as you might expect. The resulting creature Dren (Delphine Chaneac) evolves at an alarming rate into a chrome-domed woman with wings, gills and a very nasty sting at the end of her tail that sprouts out when she gets angry.
Excerpt: Upon hearing that the company they work for is about to re-assign them to considerably more mundane tasks, two rogue geneticists decide to conduct a final gene-splicing experiment, this one involving human DNA. The surprising result, seemingly benign at first, grows into a menace neither one of them could have foreseen. Although the trailer made it look very promising, this movie came off as a stale, predictable, low-budget, Canadian-made waste of potential.
Excerpt: It’s unfortunate that Splice is not going to be one of my favorite movies of the year, because honestly, it easily could have been. It could have been but it will not because of some major problems. The film is about a couple genetic engineers who splice Animal DNA with Humane DNA. Out of this experiment comes Dren. This character, or creature, is where the movie could have succeeded, but instead went in the opposite direction.
Summary: it is a version in my opinion of Species; Just not as well done as either of those 2 films. .. I liked the story line where it revolved a bit around "fred and Ginger" but once it headed full force dealing with Dren, I lost interest..Sarah Polley's character was just a jumble of "DO something! now" with little support for her way of thinking. I don't know how Adrian Brodey got pulled in to do this film. Would that he drowned this movie script like he did Dren in the tub.
Summary: Jag tyckte filmen började bra, det var intressant men in mot halva filmen så blir det väldigt dåligt. Dren såg väldigt otäck ut och det var ofta obehagligt att titta på henne, men de två som skapade henne var så korkade, usch de var irriterande.
