Trivia

The Starship Avalon, shares its name with the mythical location where King Arthur is taken to recover from his wounds - the place whence he would one day return. As such, the bartender, Arthur, is aptly named. See more »

Goofs

On Jim's first spacewalk, a tear runs down his cheek. That has nothing to do with the presence or lack of gravitational force, since H2O molecules stick together because of surface tension, and thus stick to Jim's face as they should. See more »

Quotes

Arthur: They say Time Heals all wounds.
Aurora: Broken Hearts aren't that simple, Arthur.

A Sci Fi missing the Sci
7 January 2017 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

This was a substantial disappointment; it's not often I walk out of a cinema baffled as to the point of what I've just seen. Put simply, it is a creepy romance first and a sci fi... only in the marketing. What little science there is, is wrong (others have commented on sudden episodes of zero g, sounds in space etc) and there is just nothing to inspire the imagination which characterises good sci fi. With 3 human characters, there is also absolutely no threat nor tension. At one point in the film, an allusion is made to being stranded on a desert island and this is the point in a nutshell: with a little rewriting, this story could have been set in the middle of the Pacific with a volcano as the present danger. There was no need for a futuristic setting which would have done away with the jarring technical errors and plot holes.
