(OK) Wise man Wise, his direction accompanies Crichton intuitions on machine, war and security systems, there´s no manicheism here, there´s something else in the long description fo tehnical proceedings, there´s a sort of observation of future...
View all The Andromeda Strain reviews
When the capsule of the Scoop Mission returns to Earth and lands in the small town of Piedmont, it brings a mutant living being and all the population, except a crying baby and an old man with ulcer, dies with clotted blood. A team of five scientists - the leader Dr. Jeremy Stone, Dr. Charles Dutton, Dr. Mark Hall, Dr. Ruth Leavitt and Dr. Kirkie - are summoned and gathered together in the top secret Wildfire facility. Fighting against time, they try to understand the reason why the old man and the baby survived and research an antidote to Andromeda, the ultimate biological weapon.

" 19.12. VERENKUVA - MINUN VALINTANI Kuten tasan viikkoa aikaisemmin, oli päivän ohjelmistossa kaksi kuratoitua mysteerivalintaa, jotka päätettiin Wikipediassa etusivulle nostetun artikkelin mukaan. Päivän teemana toimi siis verenkuva (complete blood count). Teeman soveltaminen oli jälleen kerran vapaata, kunhan valinnan pystyi jotenkin perustelemaan. Oma valintani oli Robert Wisen tiede-elokuva, jossa avaruudesta syrjäiseen kaupunkiin saapuneessa satelliitissa on jotain ihmisten kuole"

"A precursor to the biohazard thrillers that have occasionally infected multiplexes over the past 20 years, Robert Wise’s adaptation of Michael Crichton’s novel about a deadly space pathogen trades in the genre’s cosmic pulp and head-trippiness for a procedural-like seriousness. Having discovered a downed satellite has brought back a spore — code name: Andromeda — that threatens to wipe out humanity, a team of scientists have to contain this lethal visitor or die tryin’. The era’s p"

Bioweapons (9 movies items)

" Although the microbial threat in this science fiction film is a natural one returning to earth with a satellite, the scientific response team comes across germ warfare simulations, strongly indicating that the responsible US government projects were designed to actively search for harmful bio-agents for use in BW."
