3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Deep Space

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Director Robert Wise takes the empty, sterile widescreenframe that deadened his musicals West Side Story and The Sound ofMusic and applies it to this cold, futuristic science fiction story --and it works. When a satellite crashes to earth and brings with it a newform of life, a group of four scientists must figure out before it's too late what it is andwhy it's killing people. Wise and screenwriterNelson Gidding focus on the details and the science of the story, givingit a natural suspense that nearly holds up for the entire 131 minutes.Michael Crichton wrote the original novel. This good-looking DVD alsocomes with a new making-of featurette.
