A Sci-Fi Horror Movie For Your Weekend.
Are you like me who likes to watch unique movies which does not bore you down? If so, than you can think about watching The Sphere 1998 movie this weekend.
However, remember while it may not have gotten a fantabulous ratings, there are also people who really praised the concept and do acknowledge that its quite a well-made decent movie which makes you experience thrills and horror in its own ways.
The story revolves around a team made up of psychologist Norman Goodman, his former partner, biochemist Beth Halperin, mathematician Harry Adams and astrophysicist Ted Fielding, all of whom are prepared to communicate with possible extraterrestrials.All people are specialists in their own fields and have been chosen specifically to analyse and communicate with any possible alien life form from a huge spaceship which emanate mysterious signals and which has been spotted by the navy deep under the sea.
Whats more interesting is that the spaceship has been lying there at three thousand meters deep for more than 300 years and does not have any destruction of any sort and is infact absolute condition.
After entering the mysterious vessel, the members of the expedition discover a gigantic and luminescent sphere stored in the cargo hold. They also discover that this object contains a form of intelligence which tries to communicate with them in its own mysterious ways.
The matters get tough when one of the crew member decides to enter the Sphere, and when all team members begin to suffer various assaults from the surrounding wildlife.
As with everyone's normal habit of checking any movies imdb rating before watching, I too followed the similar culture, however, it was a little disappointing to see that it only got 6.1 rating. Could be possible that only hardcore science ficton fans may truely enjoy a sense of thrill, confusion, suspicion and fear that it makes one experience.
I personally consider it, if not the very best, than at least a good sci-fi horror movie of the 90s that one can enjoy watching in his/her free time. This movie will not make you feel as if you wasted your time. If you like time travel/sci-fi/horror movie categories than you'll certainly enjoy the kind of horror and thrills that it gives.
However, do remember that the movie is based on Grandfather Paradox and you can only enjoy it if you understand the concept.
