The most overrated movie ever
It is not easy to specify the general flaw in this movie, but I will try: the script was simply plotted without any technique applied that belongs to artistry. It is all flat, direct, linear, even though it is a fantasy and even though it speaks about time dilatation, wormholes, other galaxies and so on. When decades pass, there are trillion ways of displaying it. In this movie, there is only one - narration, and only after you understand what narration says a few emotionless flashbacks.
Emotional background is missing. There is more emotional canvas painted in any Star Trek episode than this movie. It is so bad that there is nothing to act against.
I truly think that the director read the script, took a CGI department to present what the script is talking about, and even this is done fairly unconvincing, and... he expected that to be that - a movie. There is zero effort in combining elements with more depth. The movie is still watchable, but there are far more nuances in some episodes of Twilight Zone. In this one, these are nuisances. It just looks the same, but it is a complete 169 minutes long spelling error.
What is extremely surprising is critique that finds this movie far above average, some say a masterpiece, the users on IMDb are placing it among top 50 movies ever. It is not among first 1000, let alone 50.
I hope nobody is going to claim that the movies like this one are above average or I will stop visiting theaters for good.
I give this movie 2, for the sake of sanity, for the sake of art that movie once was. I hope time will speak against the quality of this movie soon enough.
