Splice (2009) – review

DVD PAL – italian audio track

Long story short: two DNA scientists create a never seen before living… “thing”!

I remember few years ago when I watched the first time the trailer for this movie; interesting, strange, I had to watch it – and I watched years ago; today I just wanted to rewatch it, this time with a better audio/video format, player and TV set.

This is a strange film, difficult to include only in one category: it’s sci-fi, of course, with mutants, monsters etc. but it’s also a bit horror and drama; a slow movie, slower than usual sci-fi movies around these days, but it takes you to think, at the contrary of many other movies.

SFX are wonderful – I often asked myself if the actress impersonating Dren has four digits… Adrien Brody did his job quite right, at least how his face permits… this is not an action film, and is quite slow, so you got to take in account this.

If you watch ALL sci-fi movies, in particular with mutants and/or monster, you’ll like it; if not, this is not a movie for all – some will be disgusted, also ethically.

My vote: 6/10
