A missed opportunity
21 December 2020 | by botelhofairmormonSee all my reviews

It's hard to know what this movie is about or what it tried to accomplish. Most of the time you just don't have any idea of what is going on or where the story is going.

After so many great movies like Interestellar, The Martian and others, it's incredible to understand why movie studios won't hire a physicist to advise them on the science portion of the movie. Very disappointing.
