I love Sci-fi, for which I decided to have my own opinion about this movie that seems one of those love or hate ones by seeing the ratings and reviews... I'll stand on the side of the ones that didn't like it. For a sci-fi movie where the characters spend the whole time (2 long hours of movie) in a box shaped spaceship, there's very (extremely little) detail on how their system works and what they do to keep it going, and what and how they will do whatever they mean to do or be doing (this sound weird, but the plot was pretty vague to me). There were a lot of unrealistic details, like a crappy space suit that doesn't even seal the helmet, ridiculous floating in space, long periods of time past in a blink with no effect whatsoever on the characters and many, many details that are too long to list. Everything looked very cheap and poorly worked out on the writing. The spaceship design is not only very poor on the outside, the inside is very simplistic and doesn't look like something that would sustain people for years. There are a bunch of uninteresting and/or annoying characters that hate each other and wouldn't survive in any situation for a long (or even short) period of time, so what's the point of sending them on a mission that lasts years? If it was to get rid of them, it could be done simpler. The hierarchies are unclear or just not really developed or thought, as unpolished as the spaceship aspect. I didn't think there were any great performances, maybe because of the poorly written characters, there wasn't much to do by the actors. The cinematography wasn't great, but maybe because the settings were poorly designed too (even if it is a low budget, it can be done with imagination), so there wasn't much to be shown beautifully. The very simple and pointless story had a very open, lazy and unimaginative ending. If I wanted to imagine the ending I would have sit and imagine the whole movie. It's been done before enough times and it's tiring. The Ending was the only thing to save this movie and it didn't. I can't think of much I liked about this movie, just a couple scenes, a couple shots, that's it. Doesn't worth two hours of watching. I don't think there's anything that anyone would be looking for on a movie and will find here. No one to recommend this to. Maybe Pattinson fans would like two hours of him...
