Movie Reviews

Love in the lab
Petunia Ticklefancy | Sydney Australia | 02/01/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Virtual Obsession is a movie that poses all the big questions in life such as, `what if you can download your brain into a computer?' Or `What happens when a married professor hires a hot, young and dying scientist to work in his lab?'

The only scientific thing that makes sense throughout this movie is the chemistry between the Professor and his hot, young and dying research assistant. Not to mention she's dying which makes it all the more intense. `Professor, I can't die and not have ever made love to you'. Who can deny someone their dying wish?

Now let's not forget the Professor's wife who is one third part of this love triangle. After meeting the hot, young and dying scientist, alarm bells go off and they keep getting louder. From the moment she catches a whiff of perfume on his shirt, to the discovery of the love poem and finally, (my favourite part) when she finds the head of the `other woman' in her freezer.

While critics have drawn parallels between Virtual Obsession and Space Odyssey 2001, I feel that Virtual Obsession is able to rely on its own merits. A bittersweet and moving tale about love, temptation and off course, science.

(2 out of 5 stars)

*It's way too long and can't sustain suspense or interest for such a length.
*A preposterous plot that never comes near to being credible.
*Peter Gallagher's character is entirely unlikeable; he does one stupid thing after another and is unfair to both his wife, Mimi Rogers, and the siren Juliet Spring (Bridgette Nelson Sampras).
*Why would anyone not see how manipulative and selfish Nelson's character is?
*The scene where Mimi Rogers throws the head is either intentionally or unintentionally hilarious.
Director Mick Garris usually does better work (he's done many of the Stephen King tv adaptations) than this.
Worth a rental if you have two and a half hours you can't possibly find anything better to do with."
