I was lucky enough to recently watch this film. I had heard a great deal about it from the buzz on the Internet, some positive, some very negative; hence decided to give it a go and see for myself.
I was pleasantly surprised. While the effects are definitely low budget, you really find it pretty easy to ignore as you are drawn into the story. It is evident that there was not a lot of spare money for the production, and I think Billy Boyd, does a fantastic job mimicking weightlessness.
I will admit I was also very keen to see Billy Boyd in a role other than that of Pippin, from the new Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings trilogy, and I was not disappointed. In a movie with next to no dialogue, or additional characters to interact with, he carries the story consistently and effortlessly, with his wonderfully expressive face and body language.
This all said, I do believe that this movie is not likely to appeal to all. As I and other reviewers have already stated, it was overall a very low budget production. It is also a sci-fi movie carried almost solely by a single character with no dialogue, and would easily fall into the Art House genre. However, I would recommend you seeing this if you ever have the chance, if only to see Billy doing such a fantastic job, in some.... *interesting* scenes.
