Day 020: Sphere

In the deepest ocean, finding an impossible alien craft, a First Contact team find that their biggest problem is their own imaginations.
An elite and broad team of scientists are drawn together by the US government in order to investigate an alien artefact but as a storm high above their heads disrupts all communication with the surface the isolation seems to get the better of them.
The strange, alien ship is only the beginning though as inside there are bigger mysteries and, of course, the Sphere!
Based on Michael (Jurassic Park) Crichton‘s novel and not a bad adaptation. Hard to describe the movie too much without giving away salient details. Good SciFi – watch and enjoy.
Things to look out for: special effect are excellent throughout, Queen Latifah has an excellent pivotal role, Page 87!, paranoia, squid, jellyfish
Released: 1998
Certificate: 12
Cast: Dustin Hoffman, Sharon Stone, Samuel L Jackson, Liev Schreiber, Peter Coyote
Rating: good effects, some seriously creep scenes, a wonderful descent into madness, recommended
