An average movie

To be honest, I'm not really sure why but I was really eager to check this movie. Indeed, I really wanted to like this flick. I don't know, the title was pretty awesome and the whole thing seemed at first full of promises. Unfortunately, the end-result was rather disappointing. Eventually, it is a typical Peter Hyams effort, as it is a just a B-movie with some very cheap special effects (apparentl... read more

" A homicide detective and an anthropologist try to destroy a South American lizard-like god, who's on a people eating rampage in a Chicago museum. The film is decidedly average, and has it’s moments, but the CGI effects don’t age very well. The Relic is a 1997 American monster-horror film directed by Peter Hyams and based on the best-selling 1995 novel Relic by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. The film stars Penelope Ann Miller, Tom Sizemore, and Linda Hunt. In the film, a detective a"

" Date: 6/7/2021 Viewed: Hulu Re-watch Note: I haven't seen The Relic since it was on VHS back in the late 90s, and I was curious to see if it holds up or not. After watching it again on Hulu, it's not a bad movie. The Relic has an interesting premise of a killer monster inside a Museum. It has a similar vibe to Alien (1979) by being very atmospheric. Similar to Alien, the film builds up to the appearance of the monster over time. You don't see much of the monster until later on in the film. "

"Modern man oversteps his boundaries by mucking about with other cultures and inadvertently unleashes a beast upon civilization. It's a trope done to death, so it's quite refreshing to see it done with all the monster chomping glee (and grue) that The Relic manages. The movie knows what it is and it revels in it. Very fun. "

"When: June 22nd-23rd First-Time Viewing: Yes. How: VHS from the library. What'd I Think?: Passable, somewhat engaging, generic Crichton-esque techno-thriller. My Rating: 6/10 Other Notes: NA."
