At first i was like it is a straight forward good guy catch the bad guy film and i was just on board to watch a pointless action flick with no brains. Page Details: This is Splice 2009 Free Download Page. I could see how both scientists could become confused in their respective roles. Digital Pictures as Mike Becki. However, that didn't bother me cause it is very entertaining. The fact that they both pushed all morality aside when they created the new being prevents the formation of any kind of moral code for her 'upbringing'.
Once you accept that premise, the rest is feasible. Can you fall in love with it? Artificial wombs, artificial insemination, amoral scientists, using creatures for parts and cures, the link between big pharmaceuticals and research, regeneration of limbs, fetus maturation outside of the womb, sex changes in creatures, etc are all things that exist in reality. Can you consider it a 'sexual' partner or would that be wrong because you 'raised it', like a child? Flame artist: Mac Guff Ligne Paris. The scientist is overly arrogant with every move she makes. That's the idea behind the movie. Conceptually, if one could splice a bunch of creatures' genes together for all these traits, one could create a super creature with all the traits.
Just how human is human? The only thing that might seem far fetched is the 'rapid growth' idea for a complex organism that Dren turned out to be. As for the human emotions, I found them complex. I cringed during the last 15 mins, saw it coming but omg no! Digital Pictures as Vam Maduro. Most governments are far, far behind the regulation of what must be one of the biggest moral conundrums of our time: messing around with the human genome.

The setting was cik, and it's visually pleasing. The style of the film reminded me of Michael Mann's style. I have a personal ranking system for movies: Best chance of great entertainment and I'll go out to see it let's call that a 5 star. E Digitial Pictures as Tim Townsend. This movie does a great job confronting all these questions.
It is a little predictable. Surprisingly good movie about the old theme from Frankenstein, where science goes just a bit too far. . I won't withhold a star for that. The story line had some fun complexity to it that I think merited James McEvoy's and Mark Strong's acting skillz. Clive Nicoli, Adrien Brody's character, was well acted but weak beyond plausibility - probably because the role was written and directed that way.
Mark Strong is a great foil for McAvoy. Well, you can't be perfect. This film was a box-office hit and received mixed critical reviews while film has run-time of 104 min.

Frankenstein had created an androgynous creature that was at one moment a captivating and love-struck female, and at the next a hideous and vindictive monster? Would that be akin to 'incest'?

Digital Pictures as Maria Gordon. I'm glad I watched this for the transformation special effects alone. I have no doubt that scientists are already cloning human beings somewhere on this earth. User 2 Review: Welcome to the punch is a gritty british drama action flick with no punch line but a twist. Is it an 'it' or a 'she' or 'he'? And when does it 'earn' human rights?

One thing I learned long ago from Frankenstein.
Digital Pictures as Matt Horner. Must it talk, walk, breath, think, calculate, read, write, run. And there is someone out there who wants to try just about everything. Lab Tech uncredited Produced by. He is on a role with this and Trance. Their is a great build for both of them to collide.
The movie turns and really picks up in the second half. Can you kill it without guilt or consequence? Is it allowed free will? Digital Pictures as Brian Smeets. Andrea Riseborough, Peter Mullan, and David Morrissey provide solid supporting work here. The film did remind me of films like Killer Elite and Heat.
