Too dark, too cheap cyberpunk thriller
A cheap cyberpunk thriller with very little to recommend it, THE GENE GENERATION is for all intents and purposes an amateur film. It features the ever-glamorous Bai Ling (DUMPLINGS) as a female assassin/fighter whose appearance and style is clearly indebted to characters like Milla Jovovich in the RESIDENT EVIL series.
Ling goes around dispatching various goons who threaten the wellbeing of her geeky brother. There’s not much more plot to it than that, although the inclusion of some goofy CGI tentacle effects was a poor choice on the part of the filmmakers because they’re lamentable. As you can guess, I wasn’t a huge fan of THE GENE GENERATION, which is so poorly achieved as to be difficult to watch.
The whole film is far too dark which renders any action sequences rather pointless as you can’t see what’s meant to be going on. Ling’s presence in the film is merely an excuse for her to fit into as many form-fitting and revealing costumes as is humanly possible. As for the random Faye Dunaway cameo, your guess is as good as mine…
Interesting, but not good.
I have a mixed feeling about this film.
In one way, it’s an interesting story, out of the cyberpunk tradition of Philip K. Dick and others. The movie has a definite “Blade Runner” feel to it, provided by copious amounts of CGI.
The weakest element of this movie really is Bai Ling herself. Oh, she easy on the eyes, especially when she did nude scenes. But her thick accent is distracting, and at times she seems to be overacting. Playing against Alec Newman, who is understated in his performance, they are just not a well-matched pair.
The saddest element here is Faye Dunaway. She won a freakin’ Oscar, for crying out loud! She’s in the top class of her profession. Her performance here is a couple of voiceovers and one short scene, just enough to let us know how far she’s fallen since her glory days in the 1970’s.
Not a bad film to watch, but not anything anyone will remember…
