Trapped in space
5 January 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

"Airlock, or How to Say Goodbye in Space" is a British Science Fiction short film from 2007, directed by Chris Boyle. This film, which runs for 15 minutes, was nominated for the Shine Award at the Bradford International Film Festival 2008.

Basic plot: The year is 1976, and it's Christmas Eve. Adam Banton and Carl Ackland are two astronauts who are trapped in a capsule in space. They await a call from the president, something which will decide their fate.

Not only this is a good short film, this has to be one of the better short films I've seen in a while. This film proves greatly that a Sci-Fi film doesn't always have to be a full 90- to 120-minute feature film just to make a good story. I found the storytelling itself to be great anyway. While this film doesn't have any scenes of violence, the atmosphere in this film makes it somewhat disturbing.

Could be a good choice if you like watching short films and Science Fiction in general.

My overall rating will therefore be: 8/10
