Product Description

Product Description

Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) are superstars of the genetic engineering world. They specialize in splicing together DNA from different animals to create fantastical new hybrids. The charismatic couple wants to use human DNA in a new hybrid—something that could yield astronomical medical benefits. The pharmaceutical company that funds their research, however, is more interested in exploiting their earlier triumphs for easier, short-term profit. Clive and Elsa secretly conduct their own experiment. The result is Dren: an amazing creature who exhibits an array of unexpected developments, both physical and intellectual. Dren exceeds their wildest dreams…and, ultimately, their most terrifying nightmare.

-----

Clive (Adrien Brody, Le pianiste – King Kong) et Elsa (Sarah Polley, L’Aube des morts – La Vie secrète des mots) sont jeunes, brillants et ambitieux. Les nouvelles espèces animales qu’ils ont créées leur ont donné la réputation de superstars rebelles du monde scientifique. En secret ils introduisent un gène humain dans leur expérimentation. Le résultat est quelque chose sans commune mesure avec l’addition des divers éléments : une femme, mélange humain et animal qui peut représenter une nouvelle étape dans l’échelle de l’évolution. Clive et Elsa pensent qu’ils ont peut-être généré l’être parfait jusqu’à ce que celui-ci se métamorphose finalement en un monstre qui risque de les détruire et le reste de l’humanité avec eux.

In the grand movie tradition of doomed scientists, Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) won't let the official quashing of their Frankensteinian experiment stand in the way of working on the scheme anyway. Sure, the ethics of swizzling together human genes with various lab potions is queasy, and the initial result of their rogue project is disconcertingly pitched somewhere between a human baby and a monster thing with a stinger in its tail. And yes, the beastie is growing fast. Like, really, really fast. But this is science, right? Surely the breakthrough in human evolution that would come with this experiment justifies a little corner cutting? Splice is going to answer these questions in a reliably familiar way, and in its early going it finds some fun in working hip variations on the mad-scientist genre--plus, in Brody and Polley, the film already distinguishes itself by reaching up to the top shelf for actors. It would be nice to report that director Vincenzo Natali (whose Cube was a very fun Twilight Zone-flavored teaser) is able to stitch these elements into something that keeps its momentum going; alas, despite the arrival of Delphine Chaneac as the mature (and unsettlingly sexy) mutant creature, the movie begins stepping into the sillier possibilities of its scenario. Splice would like to mess you around with some aggressively transgressive material toward the end, but this just leads us away from the most fruitful moral questions surrounding the creation of the semi-human being in the first place. That's where the horror lies. --Robert Horton

Mary Shelley of Frankenstein fame would have been pleased with this movie. I became uncomfortable watching the growth of the laboratory experiment. That's a good thing. I was into it. I thought the premise was a touch different than all the monster movies of the past. That's a good thing as well. Well written, good acting and you never knew what the next special skill would be that would be coming from the experiment.

Splice(released June/10)stars Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody and was a Canadian/French co-production,filmed in and around Toronto.This Sci-Fi thriller is not quite as thrilling as I thought it would be.I don't know if its the length,the been there-done that moments in the plot,the lack of chemistry between the two stars or something else but it certainly lacks a serious punch.
The plot involves the two stars as geneticists working for a pharmaceutical company in R&D.The two create two live "lumps" and name them Fred and Ginger.However they want to push the envelope even farther,so Sarah injects some of her own DNA into a genetic soup and voila,Dren is born.At first it's a kind of cute though uncoordinated cat-like creature on long spindly legs but it soon is growing at an exponential rate.In order to keep their secret a secret,they take Dren to Sarah's parents abandoned farm where they keep her under wraps as she matures.With her physical growth comes mental growth and she continues to amaze and astonish Adrien and Sarah constantly.By accident they discover she is a water breather and after a fit of temper Dren takes to the roof and sprouts wings!
As time wears on Dren is developing feelings for Adrien who ends up sleeping with her.Sarah finds them together and storms out.At a conference of big wigs and backers,their company puts on a display of Fred and Ginger.When they put them together they inexplicably end up killing each other in a blood bath that spills into the audience.It turns out one of them transformed from a female into a male.The company is ruined unless the two can come up with a special cloning sequence they have been working on but so far to no avail.Sarah returns with a piece of Dren and successfully creates the sequence.

Everybody already knows the formula. Everybody already knows it's going to happen. Pretty good idea of who the good guys and bad guys are. Yet some of us watch this to see if there's going to be anything different. Others watch this because it is the same and they can never get enough.

A couple of renegade geneticists (Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley) crossed the line and splice with human DNA (Delphine Chaneac.) They pretend they don't know what they're doing. Just a little harmless investigation beyond what is allowed. What can be the harm in that? You and I know that how long does it take them to know?

It doesn't take exceptional CGI to make this movie. The scenes were all shot in Canada, so there may be an interest in this movie by Canadians. The pacing is quite good; the spooky parts go fast and the anticipation parts drag out.

Only subassembly race I can't tell you about any other versions. I did not see any extras but what do you need in making this movie. I would just chalk this up as a chiller, thriller, and filler.

this is a tense,atmospheric,drama/sci-fi/thriller.it deals with a topical issue,one that has been done before,but it works here.the issue is one of cloning.and the ethic and moral issues involved.it's a thought provoking movie and no matter what side of the fence you're on regarding this particular issue,it should engage you.it moves at a deliberate pace in order to to keep a tense atmosphere.the acting is solid all around,but Delphine Chanéac stands out as Dren.if you're expecting an action packed movie with lots of things blowing up,you should look elsewhere.but if you're looking for something engaging and compelling,check this one out.for me,Splice is a 4/5

Je croyais que ce film me ferait craindre. Que je ressenterais un mal à l'aise. Que j'aurais peur parfois. Que je me questionnerais sur l'être humain. Rien de tout ça m'est arrivé. C'est un film intéressant sans plus. L'histoire est pleine de trous et d'absurdités. On aborde des sujets qui sont rapidement escamontés. L'histoire des personnages principaux est traité de la même façon. Est-ce un film psychologique, un thriller, science-fiction ou horreur? Je ne sais pas. Probablement un mélange inégale de tout ça. En tout cas, ce film ne passera pas à l'histoire. Je lui donne seulement la note de passage, soit 60%.

I was disappointed in the movie. I really thought with that title, it would appeal to the adult intellect a bit more rather than a 9 year old's
