Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced details about the futuristic thriller The Gene Generation starring Bai Ling, which will arrive on DVD in January.
In the futuristic world of Olympia, a city on the brink of destruction, a team of scientists discovers a way to instantly reconfigure human DNA so that all disease will come to an end. But even miracles come at a cost, and we’ll find out if this new technology is actually a blessing or a curse. The DNA reconfiguration can save lives, but could potentially end them as well. Now, as the city is overtaken by gangs ters and DNA Hackers, the only promise for a better life is with the right DNA. Michelle (Bai Ling), a seductive assassin whose mission is to take out these so-called DNA hackers, is determined to use the new technology for good instead of evil. When her brother Jackie (Perry Shen) steals a genetic device from their next-door neighbor Christian (Alec Newman), a vigilante scientist, he gets dragged into the immoral cyber-underworld. Banded together with him, Michelle must fight not just for her own flesh and blood, but also for the survival of mankind.
Offering a widescreen presentation and a Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track, the DVD will also contain a number of bonus materials, details of which have yet to be announced.
“The Gene Generation” arrives on January 27 and will cost you $26.98
