  • Unnecessary remake of a sci-fi classic

    6.0
    If you've seen the original 1971 movie The Andromeda Strain don't bother watching this. The original movie, even though it is 37 years old, is superior in every way. And at half the length, it captures the audience from beginning to end, whereas this 2008 remake tends to spend a lot of time on story filler that is, frankly, not very interesting. The 2008 remake does take the story into the 21st century, however, by updating the lab and special effects, but in my opinion that's not enough to justify this remake. If you haven't seen the original, this series is worth watching. Judged on its own merits, it is a decent tv movie, on par with for example the interesting but ultimately disappointing mini-series The Triangle. The story is interesting, the acting decent and production values are good. If you're looking to kill a few hours you could do worse.
