mizim   Review #10668 - Dated: 20th of February, 2014
  Author: mizim

A sci-fi comedy? Yes please.

It begins with the introduction Wayne Green, a wannabe fireman practising for his fireman final when a meteor carrying alien organisms hits the heart of the Arizona desert. After a community college science professor, Ira Kane and his eccentric geologist buddy, Harry Block, discover the meteor, they find that the `bleeding' rock starts to create these weird alien creatures and soon they begin to multiply. Kane's nemeses and the military get involved, things get out-of-control and they must all team up to save the world.

Evolution is a crowd-pleaser with nice special effects and make-up, there's enough here to compare it to Ghostbusters, going so far as to have a sequence in the film where Duchovny, Jones and Scott chase down a flying creature in a mall. The three, equipped with shotguns, dispose of it in true Ghostbusters style. There's plenty to laugh at, and the actors do a good job, Moore is kind of annoying and doesn't stand out but Duchovny does a great job and is hilarious throughout it, was great to see him in a comedy role. The movie is a lot of fun and you're sure to have a good couple of hours.

This wouldn't be the first movie I grab off the shelf when wanting something to watch but I know if I do I will enjoy myself.
