The Andromeda Strain

Not every movie can star Natan Sharansky, but The Andromeda Strain was an exceptional disappointment. Blogcritics Magazine has a negative review that touches briefly on the movie’s major weakness: poor technobabble.

Since the scientists actually do very little science, the script pads out the running time with plenty of pseudo-science, giving every actor a chance to graft on some ludicrous exposition without actually explaining a thing.
