Splice Blu-Ray Review

Splice Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Superstar genetic engineers Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) specialize in splicing DNA from different animals to create incredible new hybrids. Now they want to use human DNA in a hybrid that could revolutionize science and medicine. But when the pharmaceutical company that funds their research forbids it, they secretly take their experiment underground--risking their careers to push the boundaries of science and serve their own curiosity and ambition. The result is Dren, an amazing, strangely beautiful creature of uncommon intelligence and unexpected physical developments. At first, Dren exceeds their wildest dreams. But as she grows and learns at an accelerated rate, her existence threatens to become their worst nightmare.

Review: We're big fans of sci-fi here at the Legion.  The issues dealt with in Splice are mostly moral implications of the ethics behind crossing human genes and DNA.  The result is a rapidly-growing creature that ends up being rather humanoid and disturbingly sexy.

Splice has its moments where I swear its sci-fi genius and others where it taps into one too many cliches.  Overall, its a great film, although a few of the turns of events are a bit twisted, its definately worth the watch.  If you enjoy sci-fi, this could easily be one to own.
