Good, well acted, but eh., 29 December 2011
Author: kyle-nicolls from United States

This movie reminded me of Gattaca. It was in a sci-fi futuristic 'setting' that wasn't really sci-fi at all. Having said that, I liked Gattaca more. This movie is 100% drama. Really the 2nd Earth is just a background topic and it doesn't really have much to do with most of the course of the movie. If you expect absolutely anything sci-fi, not here.

Although a minor detail, I cannot help but be continuously annoyed at the visuals of ~the~ 2nd Earth. At the beginning it mentions on a radio 'look her to see a small blue speck of a newly discovered planet bla bla bla' kinda like us seeing Mars when the lights right. The rest of the movie the planet is fully visible probably about 5x the size of the moon in the sky, you can make out the damn oceans. I know arguing physics in movies is stupid but it just irritates me.

But...the plot was good, convincing and acting was done well. If you like drama's for it in itself this is a pretty good one. To clarify, there is absolutely NO humor in this. Nothing really interesting happens. Just heavy emotional tensions in the characters. Not in me, for clarification.
