Unfortunately, The Void just isn't that good of a movie. I give it exceedingly average scores all around. Amanda Tapping does her best to save the world as academic physicist Eva Soderstrom, but the script doesn't do her any favors. Her co-star Adrian Paul looks and acts like a human punching bag, and his penchant to make jokes during even the most serious of occasions is beyond annoying. Michael McDowell is, of course, quite good as the bad guy, Dr. Thomas Abernathy, but I for one am growing tired of his evil scientist shtick. The man is too prolific for his own good in movies of this type.
The folks at the Atomic Energy Commission are apparently unaware that Dr.Read more ›
Second, expecting an understandable plot about "black hole" physics is asking a lot more than a 90-minute made-for-TV (?) can deliver. Still, it moves along as well as can be expected and gives a somewhat different Amanda than appears on Stargate SG-1.
Disappointments include the effects, which appear cheap, and the music, which comes off cheaper.
All that said, as an AT fan, I'm glad I bought the movie. Adrian Paul comes off well and Malcom McDowell again plays a villian, although not an entirely unsympathetic one.
I just wish to see Amanda Tapping in a better film in addition to the oft-discussed Stargate SG-1 feature.
Though Adrian Paul isn't overly believable as a nerd, with or without glasses, that doesn't take too much away from the overall enjoyment of the movie. Tapping does a pretty good job of playing her save-the-world-scientist character differently from her Stargate SG-1 Major Carter. The two are fairly believable as a couple. Malcolm McDowell gives a standard performance as Adrian Paul's boss, the guy Tapping suspects is responsible for her father's death.
The movie has almost as much violence as one of Adrian Paul's "Highlander" movies, and even a little sex, if you like that sort of thing.
Prof. Steven Price (Adrian Paul) is being used in more ways than one buy vixen, Prof. Eva Soderstrom (Amanda Tapping). While pilfering data from a research facility, Amanda finds that the facility ran by the autocratic Dr. Thomas Abernathy (Malcolm McDowell) is about to "void" the earth.
If it were not for flat screens and cell phones you would think this was a fifty's sci-fi. Oh yes they throw in cuddling scenes with bodies in the au natural. There is a "hole" lot of sucking. But is there a solution?

Ok, honestly I bought this to see Amanda and the Highlander team up. These two are great actors, but I don't think that could truly conquer the weak story. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Raven
O.k. maybe it is as standard disaster film. However it has Hallmark overtones. It even has Hallmark style background music.
