Where do I begin????

It seemed to me that Adrian Paul and Amanda Tapping were phoning their performances in...collect, to boot. Even Malcolm McDowell couldn't save this beast. Steer clear if you don't want to offend your senses.

"The Void" not devoid of entertainment value
Jill Bratcher | Concord, CA United States | 07/05/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"While I originally watched the movie because I enjoy Amanda Tapping on Stargate SG-1, I was pleasantly surprised. The plot is pretty typical: Will anyone ever invent an alternate energy source that doesn't threaten to blow up the earth?Though Adrian Paul isn't overly believable as a nerd, with or without glasses, that doesn't take too much away from the overall enjoyment of the movie. Tapping does a pretty good job of playing her save-the-world-scientist character differently from her Stargate SG-1 Major Carter. The two are fairly believable as a couple. Malcolm McDowell gives a standard performance as Adrian Paul's boss, the guy Tapping suspects is responsible for her father's death.The movie has almost as much violence as one of Adrian Paul's "Highlander" movies, and even a little sex, if you like that sort of thing."

"The Void is a cheap-looking by-the-book science fiction movie that offers little in the way of originality. The plot focuses on the standard mad scientist (played by Malcolm McDowell) who will not let anything get in the way of his pursuit of cheap energy through the contained use of a black hole. The first time he tried it, many people were killed, and now eight years later, he is out to re-try his experiment on a bigger scale.

Amanda Tapping (of Stargate fame) plays a physicist who's also the daughter of a man killed in the original experiment. She determines that this experiment is not only doomed to fail but could wipe out the Earth in the process. With her engineer boyfriend (Adrian Paul, from the Highlander series), she tries to stop the impending disaster, all the while avoiding killers in the mad scientist's employ.

With a story right out of the Science Fiction Clichés Manual, tepid writing and not much in the way of special effects, this movie is skippable. It has the look of a made-for-TV movie with the exception of some minor nudity (with the use of an obvious body double). In fact, right down to the second-tier science fiction actors, this appears to merely be a cynical attempt to lure unsuspecting science fiction fans into buying or renting a movie with absolutely nothing original.

"The only reason I bought this movie was because I am a devoted AT fan and was not disappointed with her performance at all. She sucessfully pulls off a seemingly stagnant role without imitating her alter ego Samantha Carter. It was refreshing to see her in a new role.

The movie was fairly good but not fantastic. One that you can only see once or twice. Malcolm McDowell was great, as per usual and Adrian Paul was good. Overall, an unbelievable and unrealistic movie but perfect for that sci-fi junkie.

The plot outcome was predictable but that didn't stop a little angst seeping through. Not edge-of-your-seat but good enough. Almost cliched but good enough performances make it acceptable. However, partly ignre the blurb on the back because I doesn't quite make sense. Who is Kat Hicks?

FYO - In the second sex scene the raunchy parts are actually a body double, not Amanda Tapping, called Miranda Hermanson. Also, for those SG-1 fans, note Dan Shea's name in the credits."
