Adrian Brody stars in this fascinating and well made science fiction drama about a couple of scientists engaged in some illegal human DNA research, creating some hybrid humanoid creature. The acting and creature effects are impressive here as is the storyline. This is a top notch Sci Fi film.
Sarah Polley also costars in this film as well, and her acting is superb as well. Adrian Brody and Sarah Polley have a good on-screen chemistry as well, which is a critical ingredient to this above par science fiction film. There’s just not enough good science fiction films, and this is one of the better ones I’ve seen recently.
The Dren creature is cleverly played by both actors as well as special effects, and her accelerated growth as well as intelligence or ability to cause major mayhem all add enough suspense and conflict to this story to keep it very interesting and moving along at a good pace. What a great movie here.
The adult Dren might just might become one of your favorite movie creatures, and keep you awake at night thinking about her. She’s both sexy and creaturelike at the same time. She’d make a perfect science fiction figure collector’s toy item, amd maybe even give a Sci Fi nerd or two some wet dreams.
The Bottom Line: This film is currently making the rounds at RedBox and other movie rental locations. For a mere $1, you can watch a throughly enjoyable science fiction film that I promise will hold your interest and fascinate you. A couple of notches better than most Sci Fi outings. +++(Three stars, Good. Great entertainment here, well worth watching or even buying a copy on DVD or Bluray).
