More challenging than being snarky, in my opinion, is focusing on what works in the movie and argue why it’s worth watching when one is too tired to do anything more exciting than watch a B-movie. The Starlin and Zinthrop characters interest me. Susan Cabot gives Starlin a persuasive desperation. She’s harassed by success-seeking and worried at the prospect of losing her looks, both normal motivations that drive her to the serum that causes adverse events. Thankfully, Michael Mark’s Dr. Zinthrop, for all his absent-mindedness and hunger for fame, is not the stereotypical mad scientist. He needs more training in Phase 1 of clinical trials, but he's a good enough to be concerned that Starlin is taking a risk by taking the extract. Worth watching.
