Summary: I really expected to be watching another piece of crap like The Human Centipede.but Splice was pretty good.It had enough to keep me wondering what was gonna happen next.I kinda figured out the ending during the middle of the movie
Summary: This movie was a little over-the-top and ridiculous by the end. The writer of this film must have been a bit deranged. It isn't a bad film, it is worth seeing, but be prepared for a few interesting moments that you normally will not see in other movies. I'd actually classify this a little more sci-fi than horror, cause really only the last part of the movie resembled a horror flick to me. This average flick will be talked about but soon forgotten.
Excerpt: Splice is a big jumble of genres: horror, sci-fi, drama, dark comedy - it owes a lot of Frankenstein - and those "horror of pregnancy" scare fims they used to show in schools. Genetic engineers Clive and Elsa are rock stars after getting "Fred and Ginger" - amorphous blob-creatures to create a protein that will make their pharmaceutical company very rich. When they mention they would like to take things to the next level, by introducing human genes, they are shut down.
Summary: Splice was a movie that had a lot of promise. It seemed to be building towards something special, but got lost in an unnecessary plot thread that didn't quite work towards the end. THis specific plot started with a scene involving the creature and the character played by Adrian Brody, and it was a scene that didn't quite work because there wasn't enough of a build up towards something like that happening.
Summary: Splice centres on two renowned young scientists (Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley) that are quasi-famous for successfully creating a new species of animal, a species with enormous pharmaceutical industry potential in the form of an ability to secrete profitable proteins. Despite a refusal by their company bosses to approve the next stage of the project, or anything that tampers with human DNA, their ambitions lead them to create a human-animal hybrid by combining human...
Conclusion: This starts off in fine form with 2 genetic scientists hatching a human hybrid but then disappointingly settles down into familiar horror tropes. Shame really because it has a nice brooding Cronenbergian body-horror vibe in its opening passages but once the creation Dren reaches adulthood, it's all too obvious where this is headed.
Conclusion: Interesting film this. Firstly as others have said it looks fantastic the overall control that Natali has makes it, the sound is also crystal. Splices subject matter made me feel slightly unsettled as well as one specific scene did (Watch it & you'll understand) Personly I think it loses it towards the end in an effort to tie up the story, but I can't help but feel they should have been braver & thought maybe a longer cut or, because of the relevance of the subject...
Summary: I tron att jag hittat en bra sci-fi (drama/thriller enligt fodralet)inspirerad rulle så sätter jag mig ner och skall avjnuta filmen och jag brukar gilla det mesta som kommer i monster och sci-fi väg. Första biten är helt ok - det kan jag ge filmen: en intressant handling som skulle kunnat göras riktigt bra - Dren är snyggt gjord med CGI - men resten är ren skit ärligt talat. Riktigt dålig och förutsägbar film som tappar helt efter 25-30 minuter. rekomenderas ej!
