Summary:
It all starts with a meteorite falling to earth near Glen Canyon, Arizona. The next day, biology teacher Dr. Ira Kane and geology teacher Harry Block from Glen Canyon Community College go to investigate. While taking a sample, they discover a slimy blue fluid ozzing from the meteorite. Kane finds myriad single-celled life-forms in the fluid, evolving at an incredible rate, even while he's watching. What seemed like a sure ticket to Sweden for the Nobel Prize soon develops into a nightmare: by evolving and adapting at an unbelievably fast rate, the aliens start spreading out, and the military comes in. Will humanity save the day?

Summary

Summary

The spirit of the mega-hit Ghostbusters (1984) is intentionally recalled with this effects-heavy sci-fi comedy from the same director, Ivan Reitman, co-starring Dan Aykroyd and debuting on the 17th anniversary of the earlier film's release. When a meteor bearing single-celled organisms crashes to the Earth, the life forms are initially confined to a cave. Before long the creatures are evolving at an exponentially rapid rate, resulting in fearsome aliens running amok and possibly spelling mankind's doom, or at least the end of man's domination over life on Earth. Investigating the phenomenon is a community college professor, Ira Kane (David Duchovny), his geologist friend Harry Block (Orlando Jones), wannabe fireman Wayne Green (Seann William Scott), and government scientist Allison Reed (Julianne Moore). Evolution also stars Ted Levine, Ethan Suplee, and Katharine Towne. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
