I don't have all the words right now but this film is a work of art.
Bad Acting and worse Bad Screenplay
The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
The plot isn't so bad, but the pace of storytelling is too slow which makes people bored. Certain moments are so obvious and unnecessary for the main plot. I would've fast-forwarded those moments if it was an online streaming. The ending looks like implying a sequel, not sure if this movie will get one
I will say that it does look nice for a fair bit of it. Even then, the cg looks awful sometimes and there are some very distracting inconsistencies. The acting by the leads genuinely angered me at points, the male lead feels like he should be played by someone with more charisma (given that's the point of the character). Somehow Rihanna was the best part of this. The writing felt unnatural for a majority of it and the whole experience was very reminiscent of Jupiter Ascending. The idea is kinda interesting but the execution was nowhere near as well handled as it should have been.
Was one of the last great adventure movies i seen in the last 10 years. This movie make me remember those adventure movies i saw in the 80s/90s but with great special effect. Love it.
Look I am no Mona Lisa/oil painting but this could have done better at the box office/better recieved etc if they had put a better looking guy as the lead. Cara is beautiful and visually stunning, she's a model so yeah she looks good, but he is just not right for this film/role and did match her beauty, he was not her equal. The lead guy in a film this expensive and big, should have been someone like Liam Hemsworth in my opinion. Only being honest, the story is good and all visual are amazing, the clothes, aliens, outer world etc, but the lead guy just did not fit and I felt he let this film down in my opinion/for me.
A movie with magnificent colors and good fighting scenes, a nice story , i read some reviews here were said the acting was bad , but I think they weren't . honestly they did a good acting , at least in the end I Enjoyed it .and that is the purpose of any movies ,that is what every people want . in my opinion this movie need some attention, and maybe the main actors are young, but they need some encouragement from us , really worth my time.7/10
