Trivia

The movie contains two references to Samuel Beckett's iconic play Waiting for Godot. First when Jessie quotes the line, "They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it's night once more." The second reference is when Miles and Flora refer to themselves as Vladimir and Estragon, and to their father as Godot. The familiarity that these young children display with Beckett's play, also serves as an additional clue that they, like Jessie, now exist only in Quint's mind. See more »

What if what people said was reality
16 March 2019 | by sideriteSee all my reviews

This is just one more "Scientist playing God and failing miserably" story. It doesn't matter that the reasons he fails are morally extinct and that the way he handles crisis is to succumb to apparent psychotic strength, because he is a nice scientist that can't do violence. A cliched and ridiculous promise that doesn't really do justice to scientists (or mad scientists for that matter). No person of science would be intimidated by a psycho boss lady and her uber strengthy hench... person. It took three thirds of the movie to reach an obvious conclusions, only to change things as a superfluous twist that no one needed.

Bottom line: a movie in which all people acted for the money, rather than for the idea of the film, resulting in a boring, cliched, pointless plot and a sub mediocre performance.
