For this review, I shall divide and conquer:
Awesome premise of jail being put in outer space. I think its a good idea
The effects were great
The acting was good.
It seemed hopeless that Snow and Emilie were going to survive, so I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
Guy Pearce (Snow) is hilarious and badass and not too bad looking....like usual.
The ending was pretty good and I approve.
The true big baddie was a twist and surprised me.
The Bad and the Ugly
Even though I adore Maggie Grace, I hated her character...
Emilie was perfect and as you all know I hate annoying characters; she was pretty, rich, smart, bold, brave, a saint, and just loved by everyone. Gah.
A couple loose ends that annoyed me.
Wish I could say more...but I don't want to give away any spoilers. It was an okay movie. I loved the setting and the idea behind a prison for all the dangerous criminals is an awesome one. The acting and screenwriting were good, even though Emilie annoyed me to no end. Sighs. One flaw is all I ask...I hate perfect characters. Anyways...I would recommend this to those that love sci-fi movies with action and a small flake of romance. In the end I shall grant this....errrrr....3 stars.
Favorite Character(s): Snow and Harry Shaw
Not-so Favorite Character(s): Emilie (love the actress, hated the character)
