A meteorite crashes in the Arizona desert and is investigated by scientific foul-ups Ira Kane and Harry Block. They discover that the rock is covered with single-celled organisms that rapidly evolve into other, more sophisticated, more dangerous lifeforms. The government send in the army and epidemiologist Allison Reed, but the alien life spills out across the state, perhaps threatening the world...
As a rare 'original' summer movie, this is extremely welcome. Likeable despite its silliness, Evolution delivers a solid entertainment package. Note of caution: the monster stuff might be too intense for the more sensitive moviegoer.
