The Last Mimzy: And Other Stories Originally published as The Best of Henry Kuttner
This is as close to a perfect science fiction film as anything that Hollywood is capable of: there is no gratuitous violence or promiscuous sex, no swearing and no blood and no death, no explosions or natural disasters or gunplay or swordfights or monsters or aliens or robots or mutants or cyborgs or comic-book-type-superheroes or mad scientists bent on world domination, none of the things Hollywood likes to ruin science fiction with. Instead good acting and flawless direction, coupled with special effects that don't overpower and dominate everything else in the film and a great--not good, but GREAT IN CAPITALS--story and a wonderful little moral message about not losing our fellow feeling for other people, the sort of social consciousness that no one could possibly object to. If you have kids, buy this thing for your kids, then buy another one for yourself. If you don't have kids, buy one anyways. The film is adapted from a 1943 short story written by Henry Kuttner (one of the leading science fiction writers of the day) with his wife, Catherine (C. L. Moore the original Goddess of Dark Fantasy greatest unmitigated literary genius of the early twentieth century) who were then quite popular and influential but have in the decades since fallen into almost complete obscurity. There is a book called "The Last Mimzy" which should be considered the essential companion to the film. The story in the book is similar to, but not identical with, the story of the movie; and there are sixteen other stories in the book, all of them every bit as good (with most of their collaborative work, Ms. Kuttner declined a byline). They wrote hundreds of stories, novels, and film, radio, and TV scripts under dozens of pen names. Perhaps the best is "Fury", from 1947.

What we have here is a splendid sci-fi oriented family film good for all ages. Ok, maybe 5 year olds won't "get it" like older kids and adults, but it won't hurt them to watch. It is rated PG. I was really awestruck by the performances from the children, particularly Rhiannon Leigh Wryn, who played Emma Wilder. She had me tearing up more than once during the movie. I don't know how she did it so effectively; she delivered a flawless and highly evocative performance, oozing cute throughout the film. Made me feel like a kid again. So what was the movie about you ask? The two kids find an alien artifact on the beach and it opens for them. It contains some really amazing stuff that nobody is sure about, and the kids try and keep it secret, but slowly they learn more about it and, in the end, find out what needs to be done. The special effects are neat, and the story is interesting. It contains a healthy portion of mystery. If you see it without the intent on slamming the movie and keep an open mind and a light heart, you will probably love The Last Mimzy.

I won't go into the storyline; I'm sure there are several other reviewers who might want to elaborate on the plot, performances, etc. I'll just stick to the fact that we really enjoyed this film and would recommend the DVD to anyone who likes to watch movies with their kids (even repeat viewings).

I took my family to see this movie without knowing much about it and - Wow! What a delight. In today's culture, it's quite difficult to find entertainment that appeals to both adults and kids.

The Last Mimzy did a great job of carrying us through a roller-coaster of emotions while unfolding an interesting, fun, and memorable storyline. The special effects are good and the interaction between characters was enjoyable. It is apparent that special attention and care went into the production of this film.

Looking forward to the arrival of our DVD!

Enjoy :-)

Two children visiting their cottage on Whidby Island find a box full of toys, including a stuffed rabbit. Soon, their abilities expand. Noah, the eldest, was barely passing Science now he's submitted a Science Fair project that could win National. And, Emma is talking to her stuffed bunny and it's telling her about a very bleak time for a future race and asking her to help.

The story's great, the casting and effects are enthralling. I think "Mimzy" is destined to be a children's classic. While the young ones won't really understand what the story means right now, I think it's one they will watch again and again--and a valuable lesson will sink in.

Number one: The Infini thing is cool.

First, let me start off by saying that I am a theoretical physicist. Second, that I generally do not like sci-fi movies or books. The reason is that they often try to give some sort of high-tech explanation that ruins it for me because the explanations are often written by individuals who only "may" understand the science at a low level.

This is why I loved this movie. The critics panned this movie because they said that the story was too disjointed. Too many plot elements: Was the whole thing in the future environmental as was "preached" by the hippie science teacher? Should we take a closer look at new age ideas? Is the Patriot Act bad? Pick a plot and go with it. If you watch the movie then you will understand why they make these comments. I agree that there was a myriad of plot elements, and this is EXACTLY why I loved this movie. They never really explained anything except that people can't travel through time. What they do "do" is allow you to view some strange events and that's it. They don't say "worm hole", even though the idea inspired the special effects. They don't find the secret of the universe in a crystal. In fact, the hippie science teacher is really a skeptic. Again, they don't really pick any perspective to "explain" things, which is why it worked for me. Explain enough for me to get the general gist of why things are happening and for what purpose and don't ruin it with technical "explanations" that are simply wrong. I read one review how this would not appeal to serious minded adults. Well maybe I am just not serious.

One more thing, the reason for not giving it 5 stars. The ending was too quick. The main part was fine, but Duncan's character was dumb.
