Finally a realistic Sci-Fi film
15 June 2012 | by (denver) – See all my reviews

I can't remember the last time a realistic sci-fi film has been made. Everything seems to be an extension of either Star Trek, Star Wars, or Alien. Never any gravity issues in any of those films, space exploration is simple, as easy as just boosting at light speed, or sleeping for decades without loss of muscle mass.

The Last Push suggest what it may be like to be true vikings in a new ocean. Rather than being funded by governments, maybe it will take private industry to float away from Low Earth Orbit into the vast nothingness.

The film builds into a unique climax, perhaps one of the more refreshing peaks in sometime. What begins as a man trapped in a spacecraft in deep space, becomes a possible clarion call for a new perspective regarding space exploration.

This has more in common with Rocky than Moon. Man is defeated throughout this tale, but like Rocky he does not necessarily win in the end, but the viewer is left with an exciting promise. When I was young I would leave the theater after a Rocky film shadow boxing and wanting to fight a noble match, after The Last Push I want to travel into the nothingness above, not to victory, but because mankind must do this.

Apparently this was shot with almost 0 money in a garage. Wow!!
