The astronauts were so stupid I was rooting for the alien to kill of them. How are these people even qualified to do their job? The first 30 minutes started out decent and then it was all downhill. Dumb decision after dumb decision only doomed the crew more. It tries to be like Alien but fails.
A cheesy teen road trip romance disguised as a space love story. The story didn't make a whole lot of sense. Why couldn't just have made the boy someone who just didn't leave the house? What is with the whole NASA thing? it ended up becoming useless. The science was off and it didn't take an astronaut to see it. Even the fact that the boy was born in Mars wouldn't have happened with the real NASA. The film tries to be hip with its Indie/Pop soundtrack and tries really hard to pull your heartstrings, but it felt forced. Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson are okay as the star-crossed lovers. Gary Oldman overacts but is still fun to watch. There have been better love stories that did less. Overall, the movie leaves a big space between all of us.
I don't know if this movie was intentionally trying to be awful or it actually tried to be a serious action film. If it wasn't for the great Donnie Yen, this Fast and Furious knockoff would be a complete dud.
