Trivia

The idea for the massive white room came from production designer Ed Verreaux. The whole structure is inspired by modern art. It's simple, clean, and minimal. See more »

There is a fundamental misunderstanding of how the jet packs work. In space, with no friction or proximal gravitational pull, a single burst from the jets accelerates the operator into constant motion until a counteracting burst slows them down. There would be no need for the multiple instances of everybody "using up fuel" by burning their jets constantly when trying to maneuver. See more »

One of the years BEST!
7 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this film. I thought Brian DePalma presented a realistic future and didn't settle for either Fairy Tale "Every one wins" situation, or "Everyone dies but one last guy" action movie genre situation.

Earth wasn't in trouble, we were still all just plodding along, exploring space to the best of our abilities, just as we are now. Yes there have been technological advances in DePalma's vision of the future, but we're not all wearing silver spandex suits and beaming ourselves from one place to another either.

I thought that the acting was fine, and the pace, while a little slow, does help to create the sense that it takes time to get anything done, or go anywhere, in space.

The graphics and special effects don't have to be cutting-edge whiz bang. DePalma based them on REALITY. Things that we see every day with space shuttle lift offs and mars explorer units being operated by remote control.

If you like Science Fiction that's based on Science Reality, you should like this movie. If you like Science fiction based on Aliens blowing things up, you would not.
