Synopsis


The Island of Dr. Moreau
On a remote tropical island, Dr. Moreau has appointed himself ruler over a menagerie of genetic mutants fashioned in his gene-splicing chamber of horrors. The products of his misguided attempt to create a more "pure" human species, the man-beasts worship Moreau as their god and "father" and live by his code of law -- a code rigidly enforced by radio-operated implants in their bodies capable of inflicting pain and death. Into this surreal nightmare arrives UN negotiator Edward Douglas (David Thewlis), the sole survivor of an airplane crash. Douglas is brought ashore on Moreau's island -- against his better judgment -- by the doctor's insane, drug-addled assistant, Montgomery (Val Kilmer), and eventually becomes a prisoner. Horrified by the doctor's monstrous experiments and afraid for his own life, Douglas seeks the aid of Moreau's lovely daughter, Aissa (Fairuza Balk), in escaping the island, but is foiled at every turn by Montgomery and his armed man-beast lackeys. Eventually, the creatures discover the existence of their electronic implants and remove them, providing the opportunity for an armed rebellion -- but eventual regression into their original animal state causes their revolt to collapse into anarchy. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

    Any movie with Marlon Brando I have to see! Im really surprised that he started in this type of movie. Its a newer version of the Island of Dr Moreau. The older movie is better. A mad scientist who experience with animals and humans. Ok!

    The movie was in a snap-case. That caught me off-guard, I'm not sure that was clearly mentioned in the product info. Besides that small detail, the version of the film was great. I hadn't seen the movie in more than a few years and I was easily entertained all over again.

    This is another movie I bought that was fairly cheap. was ok entertainment, but fits more into my category of something you would watch on tv, while falling asleep with nothing else on. Just buy it if you like buying dvd's. Its not horrible, just not too entertaining.

    Watch this cinematic disaster and pair it with the Lost Soul documentary on what could have been!
