One of the truly great sci-fi/horror movies of all time. And one of David Cronenberg's best.

Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!_____ When it comes to the likes of Sci-Fi/Horror remakes, eccentric director David Cronenberg certainly did manage to succeed quite brilliantly here (where very few others have) with this exceptional remake of The Fly._____ This 1986 offering is, by far, vastly superior to the original, 1958 version, which (even though it's considered to be a classic) is, from my perspective, a real laughable stinker. (So, anything would be an improvement to a piece of junk like that)_____ In its 95 minute running time, The Fly doesn't hit a single bum-note or waste a solitary moment._____ The Fly is an extremely intense story about a scientific experiment that goes very wrong after quirky, mad scientist, Seth Brundle, teleports himself into a world of pure hell, accidentally fusing his own DNA with that of a common house-fly's._____ Needless to say, Brundle's transformation is positively amazing. (Wait'll you see how he starts to digest his food) And I feel that I must give actor Jeff Goldblum a considerable amount of well-deserved credit here for turning in an absolutely first-rate performance as the nerdy, Seth Brundle.
