Review: Gene-Fusion on DVD

In the year 2310, a new sport, "Gene-Fusion," is all the rage! In this exciting game, specially trained athletes, called Fusers, design their own super-creature by combining three forms of animal DNA... Four teens, seemingly plucked from obscurity, are trained to be Fusers. They become instant celebrities as they perform before sold out crowds. But what they don't know is that each of them has a role to play in an alien conspiracy to take over the world. Only through learning to work together as a team can these four, young heroes take on this alien threat and save the planet from destruction!

GENE-FUSION was directed by  Fran├žois Brisson (Cinar's  Les Exploits D'Arsene Lupin), written by Gabriel Benson (The Ballad Of Sleeping Beauty, Fade From Grace) and produced by Shaun McLaughlin (Batman Beyond, Justice League Unlimited).  The film stars Nicolas Canuel, Mark William Hauser, Kaniehtiio Horn, Alison Louder.

My husband and I are both fans of animated films and the synopsis of this movie caught my eye.  Futuristic science fiction has always been a favorite of ours.  That being said, I was a bit disappointed with Gene-Fusion.  Don't get me wrong, it's a decent movie that really reminded me of the video games my husband plays, but it didn't blow me away like I was hoping.  More humor and a little more depth could have made a big difference.

DVD  features include:  Closed Captioned,  16:9 widescreen format, 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound,  trailers, and optional Spanish subtitles.
