Amanda Tapping (of Stargate fame) plays a physicist who's also the daughter of a man killed in the original experiment. She determines that this experiment is not only doomed to fail but could wipe out the Earth in the process. With her engineer boyfriend (Adrian Paul, from the Highlander series), she tries to stop the impending disaster, all the while avoiding killers in the mad scientist's employ.
With a story right out of the Science Fiction Clichés Manual, tepid writing and not much in the way of special effects, this movie is skippable. It has the look of a made-for-TV movie with the exception of some minor nudity (with the use of an obvious body double). In fact, right down to the second-tier science fiction actors, this appears to merely be a cynical attempt to lure unsuspecting science fiction fans into buying or renting a movie with absolutely nothing original.
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.
The movie was fairly good but not fantastic. One that you can only see once or twice. Malcolm McDowell was great, as per usual and Adrian Paul was good. Overall, an unbelievable and unrealistic movie but perfect for that sci-fi junkie.
The plot outcome was predictable but that didn't stop a little angst seeping through. Not edge-of-your-seat but good enough. Almost cliched but good enough performances make it acceptable. However, partly ignre the blurb on the back because I doesn't quite make sense. Who is Kat Hicks?
FYO - In the second sex scene the raunchy parts are actually a body double, not Amanda Tapping, called Miranda Hermanson. Also, for those SG-1 fans, note Dan Shea's name in the credits.
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 ›
