Brief Synopsis – A crew of astronauts on a space station near Jupiter lose communication with Earth and try to figure out what has happened while also dealing with the question of how they will survive.
My Take on it – This is a movie that I was interested in seeing solely due to it’s amazing cast.
The chance to see Omar Epps, Kate Walsh, Angus McFayden and Jorja Fox in a film together was too much of an opportunity to miss.
Unfortunately, they are all entirely wasted here because both the story and the characters are complete messes.
The film has an interesting premise yet they fail to find a way to keep it engaging which is a huge problem.
The characters aren’t developed at all and they are all painted either black or white in their opinions which hurts the real debate between them all.
The non-linear story line and the jarring look and feel of things make it all even more confusing and pointless to watch.
The special effects are horrendously done and nothing looks realistic enough to really believe that things can happen like this.
The acting is fine, but there are far too many scenes where the characters deliver things in a far too wooden way instead of seeing more genuine.
I guess there’s a reason that films like this get a limited theatrical release and are doomed to straight to DVD or streaming.
Bottom Line – Terrible film that really wastes a good cast and plot. The film is presented in a very jarring way that also is non-linear and this hurts things too much. The characters aren’t developed well enough and they all come across as being black or white in their opinions of what is happening which takes away from a real debate on their situation. The special effects are quite mediocre and it’s really hard to think of this as being realistic enough with what it is trying to do. The acting is fine but there are too many instances where they all come across as seeming a bit to wooden in their delivery which is a real shame. There’s a reason that films like this have limite dtheatrical releases and go straight to DVD/Streaming services.
