Terrible Movie ... Boring ... No Character Development ... Hardly Even A Story
I've never written a review on here before, but I felt compelled to warn everyone else who reads the good reviews on here ... don't waste your time with this garbage.
I read a bunch of reviews on here before seeing this film and wondered why so many people gave ten star reviews while others gave one star reviews. Well ... now I understand. The people who rated this movie as ten stars think it's funny to tell people to watch a piece of crap movie to make themselves feel better after wasting two hours of their own lives.
This movie is complete garbage.
It opens with a bunch of scenes from space and showing Dunst in her wedding dress with music playing the whole time. None of this makes any sense and I sat there watching it wondering what was going on. Even after I watched the entire movie, I still don't know what the opener was about.
When the movie actually starts with some kind of story, you're thrown into a wedding scene with a bunch of characters that you don't know anything about. I just sat there wondering, "Who are these people ... and why is Dunst so boring and depressed." This drags on and on and on. I honestly think the first half of the movie had no point at all. Absolutely ridiculous.
Then the second half starts and you finally get to the part about the colliding planets. Not really interesting. This half of the movie deserves one star while the first half deserves less than one star.
I don't want to spoil the ending, but I'll just say you will be really disappointed.
Do not see this film!
