The story keeps teasing a big reveal that is pretty obvious early on. The visuals are quite striking. As far as the cesspool that is sci-fi, this rates quite high, but measured against all cinema, pretty boring and aimless, and it thinks its a lot more clever than it is.
very good movie....Sam Rockwell rocks!!!
Excellent movie with great acting
Incredible movie, not your typical "whats going on" movie, very VERY original and well done, alwasys keeps you on the edge and sam rockwell is at the top of his game here. DO NOT LISTEN TO NAY SAYERS! please, trust me. there simply just not mature enough to embrass this film.
Whats wrong with people now a days? 5 stars??????? People are to generous!
Awesome movie. Loved it.
I loved SPACE:1999 too but this movie just doesn't cut it.
I didn't find this funny at all.
I was totally misled when I saw 3 different rating catagories peg this movie fairly high but have to agree with another statement that it is the worst 1 hr and 38 mins of my time I ever spent. There are so many holes in this movie that I almost left after the first 5 to 10 minutes. Watching Space 1999 from the mid 70's had more realism than this movie, but the acting and story line are very good. It was painful to sit through this movie to the end. Ratings fooled my wife & I.
At first I thought this was going to be a horror-flick but it turned out to be a mystery-in-space targeted toward an adult audience. (eg. If you dislike "Transformers" then you might enjoy this)
Great movie and intelligent story line - makes you think. Sam Rockwell is an incredible leading man in this role.
Thoroughly enjoyable as a thinking movie fortuneatly without the "monster" special effects of the under 25 group.
Quite possibly the worst movie I've seen all year. That's one hour and 38 minutes I'll never get back.
Deep film. There are those that will simply see a sci-fi homage and the film does that well. However, metaphor abounds and there is a deeper concept at play here. It makes sense of course knowing that Duncan Jones was a Philosophy grad student.
Entertaining sci-fi,with a plot twist that you can see coming.No monsters,aliens or things popping out of somebody's chest.Just an interestng film to watch.
Trippy. I enjoyed it.
A great sci fi flick. Not as mysterious as trailer led me to belive. Sam Rockwell did a fantistic job, and Gerty is yet another awesome robo for cinema history.
