2.0 out of 5 stars A-Void September 20, 2005
Format:DVD
The Void is a cheap-looking by-the-book science fiction movie that offers little in the way of originality. The plot focuses on the standard mad scientist (played by Malcolm McDowell) who will not let anything get in the way of his pursuit of cheap energy through the contained use of a black hole. The first time he tried it, many people were killed, and now eight years later, he is out to re-try his experiment on a bigger scale.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars "The Void" not devoid of entertainment value July 5, 2002
Format:DVD
While I originally watched the movie because I enjoy Amanda Tapping on Stargate SG-1, I was pleasantly surprised. The plot is pretty typical: Will anyone ever invent an alternate energy source that doesn't threaten to blow up the earth?
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Void December 14, 2004
Format:DVD
The only reason I bought this movie was because I am a devoted AT fan and was not disappointed with her performance at all. She sucessfully pulls off a seemingly stagnant role without imitating her alter ego Samantha Carter. It was refreshing to see her in a new role.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Void September 23, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this movie for 2 reasons: 1) because it has Amanda Tapping in it, and 2) its Sci-Fi. The cover is as B-grade as the movie unfortunately. The acting was awful, and so much more could have been done with the storyline. The science behind the story was very interesting though. I'm not sorry I bought it, I love Sci-fi whether its good or bad. Bad movies help you appreciate the good ones :)

3.0 out of 5 stars An exceedingly average science fiction disaster film September 4, 2011
Format:DVD
Can we all just get together and decide that creating black holes of any size just isn't a good idea? One can't help but think of the experiments involving the Large Hadron Collider when watching The Void. The disaster scenario that plays out in this film isn't all that farfetched, as it hinges on the arrogance of select scientists and the reckless determination of a project head more than willing to take any risk to make his decades-long pet project come to fruition. A significant number of scientists in the real world don't play well with others, ignore or dismiss out of hand any criticism - no matter how valid - of their work, and have been caught red-handed tampering with their own data. Yet we're supposed to fully trust these guys when they tell us there is no danger whatsoever - even after repeated delays due to equipment malfunctions - hurtling particles together at extreme speeds. The reality is that one tiny mistake in their calculations could literally kill us all. Needless to say, watching The Void did nothing to ease my concerns about CERN.

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.
