This movie raises some important questions about science run amuck. A researcher is obsessed with his gene altering project and also obsessed with finding a cure to his dad’s Alzheimer’s. He pushes ahead on his research even after it was shut down by his dramatic failure. He seems to find the medical solution he was looking for, and also seems to find a more humane side to his personality by his relationship with the chimpanzee he is protecting. But things go wrong, dreadfully wrong. The movie shows the importance of caution in research. We can’t just play with science only to reach our shortsighted goals. We need to be careful we do not create something that is much worse than the solution we were looking for. The movie also addresses the problems of cruelty to animals. A good movie for a lively discussion among teens.
