I thought this movie would be spectacular...but it ended up being okay.
To be blunt, most of the events in this movie are impossible, and the "dramatic" events were preventable. In a realistic setting, the main character would have died.
But this movie isn't all bad. Matt Kawalski is a great character. And it is obvious and consistent that Dr. Stone was not adequately trained.
You feel tension throughout the movie, and at the end I actually cried.
The visuals are...absolutely amazing. And the audio is what an astronaut would actually hear.
My favorite part of the movie though, is when the camera went in first point of view.
All these positives though, don't outweigh the negatives.
I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone, and I wouldn't watch this movie again.
An amazing cinematic experience, but overall a flat story.
She would never have been cleared to fly. I could start listing the blatant falsehoods like the ever expanding deathcloud, all things in space being right next to each other or how or how internet communication doesn't rely on satelites but i'd be here all day.
The biggest issue I have with this movie is how anti-science it is, it literally opens with the epitaph "Life in space is impossible" and Bullock isn't happy till she safely back to nature. Go watch The Martian or Interstellar if you want good sci-fi and if you even have the faintest familiarity with space or science give this movie a pass or risk getting irrationally angry.
