Chimera Strain – Movie
An intense and intellectual sci-fi thriller that keeps the viewer’s attention through each and every scene. Although some may argue that Dr. Quint’s quest to save his family is motivated by ego and delusion, I believe, it is also a look at the power of grief. Henry Ian Cusick delivers a powerful, perfectly nuanced performance as the complex and desperate Peter Quint. Whether alone in his laboratory or conversing with visions of his wife and children, Cusick flawlessly demonstrates Quint’s brilliance, frustration, grief, loneliness, and love for his work, and family through both the spoken and unspoken word. Surrounded by a wonderful cast, Chimera Strain, not only tells one man’s quest to not only cure an illness that would lead to immortality but also enters the deeper world of scientific research and the power and greed that can come with it. I would have liked a bit more backstory on Quint’s previous job and the people we meet along his dark journey, but overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this film and highly recommend it.
The basis of the film is about a brilliant yet disturbed scientist who tries to do everything possible, in a humane sense, to save his children from genetic yet deadly disease by using stem cell research and the “immortality” of the Turritopsis nutricula (known as the Immortal Jellyfish).
The film is a battleground for morality and transhumanism “If human beings were meant to be immortal or can handle immortality”
The film stars Henry Ian Cusick, Kathleen Quinlan, and Erika Ervin.
The casting was brilliant with Kathleen Quinlan and Erika Ervin playing the villianesses in the film, along with several new up and comers in the film. The way the cast acted, the scenery of the entire movie, and the moral intentions and moral boundaries and severance plays out like a beautiful opera.
