      Audience Member Starts out with potential, only to slide off the rails in an insipid second half. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie started out pretty decent, then just went to shit. Not worth watching even if you are a Tom Hardy fan. Might be a time filler, but even then it's doubtful that this movie can even get as high as 3/5 stars. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member this was suspenseful never heard of it before I think I saw it on Netflix when you add a movie & suggestions for that genre come up. Not something new but I had a laugh as soon as I heard one of their voices.. SPICE GIRL Mel B is in it! but I rented it because Tom Hardy is in it. C+ Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Boring. Boring. Boring. Badly written. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member this was a good movie to me! even though it was pretty gruesome but hey Scary Spice was in it so i definitely didn't hate it. it also had a pretty interesting plot as well Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member I checked this out only because Tom Hardy is in it as he is my new favorite actor. It's a Science Fiction film where an activist group which calls themselves L.D. 50 go out to different labs and free animals that are being used for scientific experiments (similar to the whole product testing of chemicals on harmless animals). One of their comrades is left behind after he trips and alarm and is caught in a trap. The rest of the group make a plan to rescue him only to uncover that he is being a guinea pig to a new experiment on human beings. I really didn't expect anything going into this since there were a lot of bad reviews. I was right. The film goes nowhere fast and most of the time the group is bickering with each other and there's a bunch of screaming and silliness. The acting was very dull, especially from Melanie Brown. Does that name sound familiar to any of you? If it doesn't I'll give you a hint. She was a Spice Girl. FAIL!!! Hardy's performance was the only one I like because he actually made an effort. The set designs looked like something from a basement in a Telecommunications lab that I've been to. This is a film I advise everyone to stay away from. You'd be better off doing something else for 97 min than waste your time on this film. It's pure salty garbage! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Brian Mckay eFilmCritic.com It could have worked with a bit more of a creative story and some much snappier dialogue. As it stands, it's just another bottom-feeder in an ocean of genre mediocrity. Rated: 2/5 Mar 29, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews
