After experimenting with a dog fetus which proves success, he gets the chance to work on raising a human embryo. Despite more challenge in the process, it is proven a success for the scientist. The subject, a newborn girl whom the scientist names Victoria, learns quickly with speech and knowledge from books that teach her everything from computers to chess games, making her particularly unique. However, she too is effected with the side effect, feeling an occasional ache of age.
The acting's actually not bad in this film. You can feel connected to the bond between the scientist and Victoria as she is 'growing'. Rock Hudson's not bad playing the scientist who journalizes his experiments; you feel involved with him and what's happening in his mind. You might say the actress playing Victoria is kinda hammy, but it fits the part, since she is a child at first when she first awakens in adult form.
The idea is interesting. On the downside, there are some cheesy moments that break the seriousness; like how the dog manages to open and close a car door and murders a poodle, hiding its trace secretly. You wish those moments were left on the cutting room floor.
But despite criticism, it's quite watchable for a b-movie. Check it out while you can.
Good acting, and a decent enough movie with a message.
HALF a star for effort. XD
