“A rich but racist man is dying and hatches an elaborate scheme for transplanting his head onto another man’s body. His health deteriorates rapidly, and doctors are forced to transplant his head onto the only available candidate: a black man from death row.”
And so you have The Thing with Two Heads. The plot is pretty solid, the effects are entirely awesome. There are many instances where it’s incredibly obvious both actors still have their bodies. I can’t argue with the acting or the dialog either. Unfortunately, the movie features some fairly boring spans, as well.
For instance, the famous car chase scene is a little (read: lot) on the long side. How many times do you need to watch the same car run into different ditches? Rosey Grier is probably the highlight of the movie, but everyone does a pretty decent job of being… what you’d expect from this movie.
Wow. Not much to say on this one. Don’t take that to mean this is actually really good, though. I’d say it’s worth watching once, but I probably wouldn’t watch it again.
Maybe it’s on Amazon.
