Trivia

The bar's art deco design - a vast departure from the futuristic layout everywhere else on the ship - was an aesthetic choice based on a classic New York bar, intended to bring a feeling of familiarity to the film's audience. See more »

Goofs

Jim and Arora have no trouble accessing and using the space walking equipment. Space walking is a very dangerous operation. If anything goes wrong, the space walkers can be killed and the ship can be badly damaged. The space walking equipment would only be accessible to authorized crew members who have been trained in space walking. Also, space walking is only done when it is necessary to go outside and make repairs to the ship. In time when interstellar travel is possible, Human colonies on different planets it's probably quite normal for humans to spacewalk. Yeah it's dangerous for normal humans now but in that world probably every one does spacewalk for fun & probably is trained for it too kind of like all those theme parks rides in our world now.

A decent sci-fi rental that plays it too safe.
7 April 2017 | by Damien_King86See all my reviews

I'm just going to list my takeaways from the movie in list format. Maybe it will be helpful to someone, maybe not.

Pros - The production is immaculate. The cinematography, set design, CGI, all of it is top notch, as expected from a movie starring two of the most popular current actors. - Although I'm not crazy about Jennifer Lawrence, and I only really like Chris Pratt as Starlord, I will go ahead and list them as a pro, since they did a good job with these characters. Michael Sheen is also welcome in any movie.

Cons - The science of the movie is a bit slinky at times, obviously to serve narrative motives. Other reviewers have detailed these inaccuracies, so I won't get into it, here. - The movie mostly leans toward a romantic drama vibe, and I personally think there should have been more of a sense of dread and danger throughout the movie, not just near the end. - Given the high profile status of the leads, the sex scenes are predictably tame and brief. Along with the lack of danger, the lack of eroticism is another way in which the movie plays it too safe. - The catharsis at the end that stems from the main moral dilemma (which I won't spoil) does not occur satisfactorily in my opinion. It didn't move me at all, and made it feel like it was never that important to begin with.

In summary, this is an entertaining, but light sci-fi romance. It feels like a 70's sci-thriller that has been thoroughly processed for a general audience. It makes a good rental, but I couldn't help but lament that it wasn't the riskier, edgier film that it wanted to be.
