I rushed to see this film on the strength of the IMDb reviews. I left the theater wondering if I'd seen a different film. First off, the 3d visuals were absolutely spellbinding. That mitigated my disappointment with the rest of the film to a certain extent. However, the thin story and weak dialogue kept dragging me out of the action. Sandra bullock did her best with the on the nose dialogue that was laughably bad at times. She didn't seem to be the right fit for the role but I don't think she can blamed for bad writing and misdirection ( no one told the director that thirty minutes of hyperventilating might be unnecessary realism?) By all means go see this film for the spectacular visuals but don't expect a story to go along with the spectacle. Even Jim Cameron managed a decent story with Avatar. Sadly they missed an opportunity to create a scifi classic here.
