The special effects are necessary to the plot!
29 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must admit I only went to see this movie to see the pool screen on the big screen, but boy am I glad I did!

I don't know why anyone would give this a less than stellar review. The story was excellent, good plot, interesting characters, well acted and (unlike several movies I've seen lately) the special effects are Integral to the plot. My daughter begrudgingly went with us because she believed the reviewers and thought the entire movie was about 2 people killing time stranded on a spaceship. That couldn't be farther from the truth! It was one of the most human stories I've seen this Christmas season and the only one, so far, I would consider seeing again!

I will recommend this to all my friends. I already called my mom and dad (in their 70's) and told them to go see it. No gratuitous violence (again, only what was needed to further the story). This is a great date movie.
