Bad news on the doorstep:
|6 out of 10 quadriplegics |
attempt suicide at some point.
Overbearing mum = bad.
Sexy nurse girlfriend = good.
Perennial wonderment:A touchin movie but I'd like to know if quadriplegics were as annoyed with the happy endin as alleged by some forum comments I read.
Reminds me of:Link (1986), Outbreak (1995), Shakma (1990).
I can't remember if I cried:My wife kept shriekin and jumpin off her seat. Her cousin kept both hands around her ears throughout. It was a great night out, short of meetin Romero himself, who was in town but not presentin for tonight.
Most memorable line:
|Old Orion Pictures movie still scan.|
Watch out for:
Quadriplegic sex with Kate McNeil. Nice. Sorta reminds me of Breaking The Waves (1996).
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?In a movie that is so well crafted, you'd have to think hard about where it fell short. I guess lead actor Beghe was caught hammin it up in parts. Also, sparin several minutes of its 113 minutes to document the precise sci-fi connection between monkey and man could've elevated its endurance. Nevertheless, this is a nigh timeless piece of intense work that deserves every revisit.★★★★
|An important early scene to establish the virility of the protagonist:|
Jason Beghe doing calisthenics nude and then grabbing Janine Turner's arse.
