Movie Reviews

Finally! Someone's made a cure for insomnia!
Christopher Pumphrey | 01/11/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"A deadly virus kills 5 billion people in the year 2010, and everyone depends on a drug called Absolon to survive.The production design leaves a lot to the imagination. I don't care how low their budget was...they could have made it look better. It looks like they spent half their budget on a special effects shotin the beginning and a 3-D biohazard symbol in the opening credits. They would have been better off spending their money on better sets.The dialogue is full of wimpy clichés, and all of the acting is dry. Sadly, though, the dialogue is slightly less boring than the action scenes.This is the worst movie Christopher Lambert has been in since Highlander 2: The Quickening.I guess if you want to watch a stupid movie just to laugh at, you could go with this one."
I WANT A NEW DRUG
Michael Butts | Martinsburg, WV USA | 09/16/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"ABSOLON doesn't rely on flashy special effects nor big budget car chases. Unfortunately, it achieves only mild cult status as a B film. Christopher Lambert, trying hard to hide that French accent, is a noble hero, and Kelly Brook is a fetching love interest. Lou Diamond Phillips is an inept hitman, government agent; and Ron Perlman is the shadowy pharmaceutical magnate. Seems like the world in 2010 has been basically wiped out by a virus that came from man's destruction of the rain forests. Now all survivors must take a drug called Absolon daily in order to fight off the virus. When a doctor discovers a possible cure for the virus, he is killed and the hunt is on for Lambert, who has gotten involved.
The script is tangled and doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but it entertains; just don't expect a great movie. Just a passable one."
Slow but Kelly Brook Looks Hot
The Wedge | Santa Barbara, ca United States | 02/24/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Like any movie on the sci fi channel this movie is slow. Lambert is his usual professional self playing his part well but this movie gets its 3 stars for the looks of model Kelly Brook."
Hamlet of the Future!!!!
P. Brown | Distopian Future | 01/15/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"No film tackles the ambiguities and tribulations of the human condition like Absolon. Through an examination of all of the great works of Christopher Lambert, this film rivals all others in its depth and meaning. More trancendent than Fortress, more epic than the Highlander series, this film captures one man's struggle for survival and quest for truth like no other. The film's greatest contribution to cinema is the settung: a distopian future; a previously unexplored and daring topic for both the genre and Christopher Lambert himself. In short, this film moves the spirit to ethereal hights of ecstacy; truly, not since Michelangelo has man created such art to stir the soul."
