DVD Review: Creation

Posted in DVDs, Film, Reviews
By Sam Bathe on 10 Jan 2010

A part-fact, part-fiction take on Charles Darwin’s (Bettany) turbulent life as he wrote his book On The Origin Of Species. As his relationship with his wife, Emma (Connelly), takes a turn for the worse, Darwin breeds pigeons to provide evidence for his theories but when the book is complete, leaves the final word in the hands of his other half.

Paul Bettany does a decent job as Darwin, and it’s certainly interesting to delve into the legendary figure’s life, but the film is flawed and the stuttering narrative and somewhat hollow plot hold it back from going toe-to-toe with similar biopics.
