Reviews by James C. Clark
Apparently this movie is popular because it raises a lot of questions about humans, their origin, and perhaps their ultimate fate. Nice, but the movie is a mishmash. One thing that future mankind has NOT learned, apparently, is to avoid sending out an exploratory ship filled with people who essentially do not know each other, like each other, or even know why they're there -- have they never watched science fiction movies? At least there are the requisite ancillary characters who are dispatched by slimy beings to set up the apocalyptic second half. Which brings us to the black goo. Why is it there? Was it produced as a biological weapon which then turned on its makers? Find out about the black goo by doing what I did -- Google it.
Would someone who watched more than the first 15 minutes of this film please write a review.
Another fine BBC mystery production. Entertaining in itself, it is also fun to see how Rufus got his start 'in Hollywood' by checking out the video of Cold Comfort Farm.
Recommend this to your friends who insist, in the face of all evidence to the contrary, that Bruce Willis has never been in a bad movie.
Call me an old fuddy duddy, but I found this movie to be a bit of a yawner. My wife concurs, and if you think this is proof that love concurs all, better brush up on your spelling.
