Best movie ever!
A lot of fun.
Although it has its amusing moments, in eneral the plot does not convince.
All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.
As I recall this is the first time I've ever paused a Ridley Scott movie and gone back to it the next day. But on this occasion I did. It's missing that pin that keeps me stuck to my seat. And then it became obvious..... it's missing that chill factor- not the feel good factor. It's missing, but never seen, the grotesque surrounding our man.
The cast is talented, the scenes look good. So what happened? The writer of The Egg gets the story a bit scrambled and the film is at this point the most over-rated Sci-Fi film on IMDB.If you do not like the theater version, try out the unrated verson with 10 extra minutes on the DVD. This longer version reveals what the cast here truly wanted to do, and did. They take a crisis and make it into a comedy film. Worse yet, they then cut the film to make it look more serious than it was filmed at.Cut is an ending that comedically compares with Slim Pickens riding his bomb down in Dr. Strangelove. The trouble here is that this film is nowhere near as good as it is rated. Maybe Matt Damon and Kristen Wigg have a lot of fans out there, but serious Sci-Fi fans have a whole lot of issues with this one.Thw science is just not right. The premise is not much better. The films plays like the shooting budget got slashed after they started it. Funny, but sad considering the talents wasted.
BEST Sci/fi movie ever!!. Awesome Matt Damon,10/10
Generally the movie was good....lots of quasi-science which, although improbable, didn't stretch the bounds too far but the ending......really? We're supposed to believe that the rocket nose....in order to save weight, jettisons the hard cap and replaces it with....wait for it....CANVAS. If you do the math, the only speed quoted, which is BEFORE the maximum thrust, converts to about 2600 kilometers per hour. Now I've put my arm out the window at about 150 KPH and had the hair nearly blown off so I'm pretty sure 2600 KPH is more than a little improbable. Since the entire movie is predicated on hoping we will believe at least some of the science why couldn't they have just picked a smaller number to reduce it which didn't entail removing all the windows and the nosecone 'cause I'm pretty sure they'd be necessary at 2600 KPH....just saying.
