Not great
23 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just started this film. Why not write a review whilst watching it, eh? I'll pause it every few minutes and add to this review.

Right off the bat, it starts with a "beyond all odds, we completed this film" sort of back-patting forward. Did we need to see that? Wouldn't that be a bit better placed at the end of the film? It felt really weird, as if to imply the film can't stand on it's own, and should be viewed as a low budget project made despite great obstacles, so don't judge it too harshly? I mean, just look at how many countries we shot in, and how we nearly failed, had it not been the kind help we received...from you! That, was rather lame and studenty.

Then it began, with a lengthy dialog from a single actor, filmed in a bluish low contrast way that might have been meant to make it appear like older interview footage? Not bad. Acting was decent in that part, and it was an interesting setup to what I assume was about to follow.

We now meet an astronaut. And immediately he begins speaking. He's filming himself for post-flight analysis, and in a way that's become so cheesy, so tired, and so common...with a modern street vernacular. That alone is bad enough, but this is also supposed to be the mid 1970's. How brutally pathetic. Why, oh why, do inept writers/directors invariably feel the need to dumb down anything of this nature to appeal to those who, most likely, would have not liked it any less had they stayed true to the reality of the subject matter? We've all had lengthy exposure to the communications of modern and past space missions, and even the least interested viewer knows instinctively how it normally sounds. What they wrote for this guy, especially considering it's a new film, is equal parts stupid and comical.

"the solar panels are history" "and unless I can find a gas station on the way back, I'm pretty fuuked" Really? Who writes like this? Well, this guy does. And perhaps that's how it was written in the novel, by Yago Ferreiro. Doubtful, but perhaps it was. Even then though, why wouldn't they attempt make it sound a bit less like dialog aimed at teens? That's what "adapting", is all about.

However, if that cheesy vibe was not in the original novel and they actually added that layer of queso? Good grief.

And this is just the first 10 minutes or so. Lets continue watching, hopefully it gets much better.


Remember all that complaining from a few moments ago? Disregard it. It seems pretty insignificant by comparison to what followed. Talk about derivative? Holy flashbacks, Batman! Someone was clearly inspired by three films (and perhaps others also) you've most probably seen already. This feels like a very well executed student film which is trying very hard to emulate these other films. If you've seen them, you'll know immediately which ones they are. Hint: One rhymes with Sam Harris.

You might end up swearing to remember this guys name so that you never make another mistake like this again. Then you'll wonder where your left black sneaker is, and/or the last Mars bar you hid from your flatmates obese girlfriend, who's been gone for months. Funny, the things which come to mind when a film isn't doing the one thing it exists to do, entertain.

Found the Mars bar! On the bright side? Well, it looked, visually, far better than many projects shot on a DSLR. Props go to whomever was tweaking the footage in post, almost completely ridding it of that horrible "video" smell which most video cameras have. Sorry, I meant to say "digital". Sounds much better, doesn't it? Great scenery can only add to an already decent story. Locations and hardship don't make a film good.

Makes you wonder what this team might have done, given their obvious extreme motivation, with a better and more original script, and a simpler project.
