What's With You People?

  • Summary: Three fourths of these reviews hate the movie and whine about the idiot decisions of the scientists. Well of COURSE they made idiotic decisions! Where's the film if they made perfectly sane decisions? What kind of film is that? I actually thought the film was effing brilliant. I think it took a familiar premise and retooled it. The performances of Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley were exemplary, as always.

A twistedly depraved, yet highly enjoyable science fiction nightmare

DonFishies, IMDb
17 June 2010
  • Summary: Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) are genetic scientists attempting to come up with a breakthrough protein that will help combat against deadly diseases. But the pharmaceutical company financing their work wants to push ahead, despite their insistence of needing more time to perfect their work. With the prospect of losing everything they have worked for, the couple secretly splices together a cocktail of animal DNA with human DNA, and wait to see what happens.

Untruth In Advertising

Colin George, IMDb
9 June 2010
  • Summary: "Splice" is a step in the right direction for horror. Every so often, I find myself pleasantly surprised by intentionally misadvertised entertainment, and writer/director Vincenzo Natali's genetic genre mash-up is the latest such example. From a marketing standpoint, its scare-tactics are clearly the easy sell, despite their comprising only a tiny percentage of its thematic intent. 'Hard sci-fi parenting metaphor' is, after all, a much tougher pitch.

The Horrors of Parenting

Jonny_Numb, IMDb
7 June 2010
  • Summary: James Whale's 1931 adaptation of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" was one of the earliest films to chronicle man's quest (via science and nature, and in notably strict defiance of God) to literally create life by transgressing human reproduction; granted, the result was the hideous, hulking visage of Boris Karloff, but one couldn't help but be in awe of the sheer gumption of Victor Frankenstein and his accomplices.

A solid new movie about a tired (and almost overdone) ethical topic

Bok Choi, IMDb
13 May 2010
  • Summary: I was privileged enough to catch a screening of Splice last night that headlined the director Vincenzo Natali as a special guest. I've been a moderate fan of his work since his eerie and claustrophobic feature, Cube. Like Cube, I found that this movie was able to set an atmosphere that was almost palatable throughout the film.

"Species with a twist"

  • Summary: Gene Splicing rather than Alien life-forms, but plays out very similar. Special effects and acting are in my opinion better.

Interesting, wierd, give it a go

  • Conclusion: Definitely not what you'd expect from this film genre. CGI is very good, the main "creature" starts off looking like something out of deadspace. Visually impressive and acting is fine, storyline gets a little crazy but at least worth renting if you like sci-fi

'GOOD'

rbmusicman, play.com
26 April 2011
  • Conclusion: 'clive' and 'elsa' are at the top of their game as 'bio-chemists' and held in high esteem by their employers. they successfully 'splice' 'dna' to create life forms and feel they are ready to make the next step by creating a human-like creature, they are told 'no' as it would cause to much controversy.

  • Summary: Det här är en sån där film som kunde ha blivit så mycket bättre och mer spännande om de inte hade fegat ur och gått den konventionella vägen mot slutet.
