| Not original, but pretty good for a made-for-TV sci-fi thriller
This film concerns a science experiment gone horribly wrong; it makes a newborn little girl grow uncontrollably fast, and the film revolves around the two main characters, who are science students, trying to stop it, to stun her growth, or at least bring it down to a more sensible rate. The plot is pretty good; it starts off a little slow, but then it picks up in pace for the rest of the film. You never lose interest, even though it is not an original idea, and it is a tad predictable, especially the ending. The acting is good, especially for a TV movie. I was very impressed with the child actors, how well they performed. The characters are well-written and credible, especially the character of the constantly growing girl. There wasn't a scene where I couldn't understand her actions. The effects, even though there aren't many of them, are well-made, considering the budget the film must have had. The editing and cinematography is mostly nothing special, but there are a few exceptions which are fairly impressive, at least for a made-for-TV movie. All in all, a pretty good movie built from a very good basic idea. I recommend it to most fans of sci-fi thrillers and anyone who finds the subject interesting. 7/10
