NOTHING NEW, BUT ENTERTAINING
on April 29, 2013
The film travels well worn paths but I found it to be entertaining. Ignoring the gobbledegook, the so-called scientific explanations, the cast made it come to life. For me, at any rate, clarity as to why things were happening, save for the theme, that the devil made me do it, never was achieved, but I did get the idea: the ship was out to perpetrate great bodily harm on the rescue crew which came to investigate what had made it disappear years before (and reappear now).
Sam Neil and Lawrence Fishburne head the cast and do what they can to make the manifestations of evil apparent, with Neill bearing the brunt of the need for a certain amount of overacting to make real the impact of the invisible. The remainder of the cast reacts suitably to the terrible and unknown forces which are tearing them apart.
I wouldn't want to lay out too much dough for the discs now (there is an entire disc of extra's), but at something like the current 'used' rates, it is a good buy.
