Movie Reviews

Weak G Rated TV Sci-Fi
Thomas C. Hanna | Northern Hemisphere | 01/07/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Low budget made for TV movie with very little creativity for Alien design. Extremely poor acting for the most part, but... new talent has to start somewhere.

PS: I've seen Stephen Cannell do much better work... this was a let down."
"The Abort Code Is 'Man Over Moth!'"
Robert I. Hedges | 12/28/2008

""Threshold" is a low-budget made for television film about carnivorous moths from outer space. Everything about the production is cheesy from the concept to the script and especially the special effects (the meteorite to the spacesuit is especially lame.) For those of you who have seen "Alien" I don't need to recap the plot ("Alien" is even mentioned in the dialogue at one point...), but for those of you who have not, a space shuttle accidentally brings a new and deadly life form to earth. This time it's a killer moth. Seriously.

The moths swarm, look menacing, and colonize people with B negative blood in a coagulated plot which involves the hunky divorced NASA manager named Geronimo and a single, cute, and very available female ichthyologist, Savannah. The moths infect some already unlikable cast members who grow additional arms with pinchers on the ends and long CGI proboscis tongues that qualify as one of the hokiest special effects I have ever seen. The central theme of earth versus the moths is intertwined with a predictable romance subplot, and a subplot featuring a marital dispute at the home of the awfullest family in Texas. If you guessed this would all end with a shootout and explosion on a decrepit boat, you win the prize. How the plot gets there doesn't matter (and doesn't make sense anyway), but the important thing to know is that the movie is over. Or is it? The utterly predictable ending is supremely annoying and really earns this film in the TV movie hall of shame.

The DVD has no special features, but at least it's cheap. I gave it two stars for unintentional camp value. If you enjoy silly, predictable, and utterly ludicrous horror films, you will enjoy "Threshold." Everyone else can move along."
A solid 3 stars

"Caught me by surprise...this movie kept my attention due to pretty good
acting..good music and a interesting script. I took this movie like
a good episode of Outer Limits. The creature effects are decent and some
of them are well made. The ending is a little lame, but it leaves the door open for a sequel.... in which i will also this is a interesting story that has lots of room to evolve."
Just enough to entertain for the budget buck!

"I expected a light entertainment with minimal intelligence....and Yep you guessed it....I wasn't disappointed. A Sunday afternoon flick of some interest ....for the price even shipped to N.Z it was value....better than a lot of the `B' through `Z' grades I have brought. Good image and sound"
