This Is A Great Movie

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I wrote a review for the V.H.S. edition of this film, a few years ago, but it is gone now, because it is no longer available on V.H.S. and Amazon has completely removed it from their database. I saw this movie when it came out 25 years ago (1983). I've always liked it a lot. The scientist that created the android, gets very attached to it throughout this movie, because he and his wife were never able to have children of their own, so the human looking android is like a "son" figure for the scientist. I like that aspect of this film. The ending is sad, but Michael (the android), did the right thing. The government would have used him for the wrong reasons. Watch this movie and I think that you will like it."
Excellent low-budget drama

"This is sci-fi, but don't expect a high tech thriller -- it's a well-written, well-acted, well-directed drama. The pace is on the slow side, but if you're in a laid-back mood, it's a nice little movie to kill an hour and a half with."

"Prototype is a great movie, despite the lack of (or the need for) the typical sci-fi special effects we've come to expect. The story line is solid and meaningful.
The DVD cover-art is a little misleading in the sense that it brings to mind such epic movies like "Terminator" - it's a marketing gimmick (IMO) that works - it's what got me to pick up the movie in the first place."
