This, folks, is where Michael Meyers “Mini-Me” came from, of Austin Powers fame. So besides midget fetuses running around, we also have animal-human hybrids (kinda), Val Kilmer on shrooms, and a rather tubby (as in, stomach the size of a bath tub) Marlon Brando in white-face (such that he really looks like a walking bath tub… well, he never really walks that much, so really Marlon Brando just plays a bath tub). The plot only somewhat modernizes Wells’ brilliant novella adding in extra action sequences, the usual. I honestly can’t say this is too awful a movie, but it’s definitely one of many cases of Brando going completely insane for no reason whatsoever.
