Goofs

If Homestead Company made eight quadrillion dollars from its first planet, that is a poor rate of return. Considering the distances involved, it would take centuries to even begin to realize any significant return, while investing capital on earth over a long period can easily give big returns. If the company had invested 66 billion dollars at 5% over 240 years (the expected minimum journey time to Homestead II and back - ignoring time dilation, which would greatly increase the period), they would have made the same amount of money. The question is: did the _Avalon_ cost more or less than 66 billion dollars? It seems reasonable to assume that it cost far more. NB. it makes almost no difference if the spaceship is reusable; the replacement cost is tiny compared with the expected profit. Movie doesn't really implies in which time it's set in so speculating economics of that world can't be called as goof. See more »

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.
