A well crafted documentary that recalls a horrific day in history. Candid personal accounts of those in charge, the shock they faced, and how they navigated the challenge in the moment. Worth watching, and remembering.
A rough & tumble smash-mouth – good guys vs. bad guys – with both sides taking a beating. Russian mafia is cliché but works. Backstory is slim on info. The movie might've benefitted had they gone further with it.
A powerful story. As the characters make their way through life and various themes, viewers experience a reflection on how they learn to accept themselves faults and all, without hopefully losing themselves to substances that can both enhance and block out the true world.
The plot is completely implausible and the movie never recovers. A real space exploration program would involve redundant systems that would prevent issues seen in the story. Throwing in the old "solar flare" crisis seems like lazy writing. There were other ways the story could've gone that would've made for a better film. The absence of weightlessness and zero mission control characters signal this might've been a low budget endeavor.
The time aspect of this film never lands or makes much sense. This translates into a confusing and frustrating experience. There is some resolution at the end but the "things moving in reverse" approach is a miss.
