It's a classic.
Southerland, Goldblum and the rest of the cast do a great job. The SFX are pretty good and
my fav scene is the bench bum & dog scene...
I'll never forget that one!
If you want good ol' SciFi, grab this movie, you can bet your "pod" you'll like it.
All of the actors do a splendid job in portraying their characters, from the quirky and nuerotic Jeff Goldblum to the intuitive and resilient Veronica Cartwright. The stolid but slightly off-beat Donald Sutherland, to the emotionally suspicious Brooke Adams. All are terrific here!
Another thing that makes this movie so suspenseful is the masterful use of paranoia, which starts on a low simmer, building gradually, till by the movie's end everything is turned up to a heart-pounding, raging boil. All along the way you're virtually on the edge of your seat.
So the next time you're out walking and find a rather strange looking plant growing amongst the shrubbery, think twice before bringing it in your home.
But why worry, it's only a plant - right???
I would have loved to have seen more of the main actors in the interview sections but i fully understand this many years later sometimes they just aren't interested and have moved on with their lives.
