      Matt Brunson Film Frenzy "Bland" is the word of the day when it comes to Genesis II. Rated: 2/4 Oct 3, 2020 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures This was a stinker of a show. The acting is awful, and the writing is poor. Rated: 1.5/5 Jun 27, 2011 Full Review Ryan Cracknell Movie Views A solid film of somewhat dated Cold War-era warnings of global conquest and strife filled with moments that are both dramatic and laughable at the same time.

      Audience Member A very odd science fiction movie written by Gene Roddenberry. This movie is definitely a must see for sci-fi fans. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member How do you follow up Star Trek. Gene Roddenberry spent the 1970s coming up with pilots for new Sci-Fi and fantasy series which did not get picked up by the networks. One of these was Genesis II filmed in 1973 which featured Alex Cord playing Dylan Hunt, a NASA scientist who wakes up in a post-apocalyptic future after spending 154 years in suspended animation. Mariette Hartley plays an alluring mutant with two navels who entices Hunt to join her city state of militant, mutant Tyranians. The mutant woman with two navels was Roddenberry's way of getting back at the network censors who made his life miserable back during Star Trek's three seasons on the air. Will Hunt escape the Tyranian's city and save the peace-loving citizens of PAX (dedicated to preserving what was the best in human civiilization? Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Gerne Roddneberry's imaginative, but silly tale of a nuclear physicist who wakes up after WWIII many centuries ion the future. Enlisted to help rebuild technology, he becomes a pawn in the struggle between some religious crackpots and a some brighter, but evil secularians who want to build a great big, fat nuclear bomb. Some very imaginative sets, especially the subterranean, super-sonic "subshuttle." Made for TV. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
