This movie turned out to be good. A very well executed sci-fi horror/thriller, I held my breath for a great deal of the movie. I felt it pushed the boundaries of traditional film categories. I was impressed with both Brody and Polley's performances, and the CG work was incredibly seamless. Splice rises out of the gluttony of modern horror and science fiction films. It has the old school charm, and it uses that to its advantage to create a rather unique film for its time. Natali, alongside co-writers Antoinette Terry Bryant and Doug Taylor, have crafted an uncompromising view of a potential nightmare of the future. Much like other great science fiction titles, Splice makes the audience think very hard about the morals being broken at any given time, the consequences of the characters' actions, and the very nightmare before them of whether a splicing experiment gone wrong like this one, could actually happen in reality. If there is anything wrong with the film, it is the final act. Up until that point, everything feels very calculated and wildly unpredictable. But the last chunk of the film and especially in the dying moments of the film, the plotting seems very ill-conceived. It feels as if the writers had squandered all of their good ideas for the first two-thirds of the movie, and then ran out of ideas as to what to do afterwards.
