Supernova chronicles the search and rescue patrol of a medical ship in deep space in the early 22nd century and its six-member crew which includes a Captain and Pilot, a co-pilot, a medical officer, a medical technician, a search and rescue paramedic, and a computer technician. When their vessel, the Nightingale 229, answers an emergency distress signal from a comet mining operation in a distant galaxy, the crew soon finds itself in danger from the mysterious young man they rescue, the alien artifact he's smuggled aboard, and the gravitational pull of a giant star about to supernova. The resulting explosion will be the most massive explosion in the universe. Written by
This wasn't too bad, to be honest, I liked it. I went in, expecting it to be terrible, but I walked out surprised. It starts off like any sci-fi movie would, the opening shot being a huge spaceship zooming into our view. This shot still looks good even though it has been done too many times. This pretty much sums up the whole film. I can see why people hated this movie, because of the acting (Lou Diamond Phillips!) and the script and the terrible dialogue, but it was so spectacular and the special effects were excellent. The movie's plot was a bit of a mixture of Event Horizon and Dead Calm. The action scenes weren't that great, and the whole guy with healing powers thing wasn't great. Overall, I'd say it's worth the ticket price for sci-fi fans who are bored. 6/10.
