Trivia

According to production designer Guy Hendrix Dyas, the inspiration for the ship's rotary design came from observing the seeds of maple trees, and how they spin like tiny helicopters as they fall. See more »

An ion drive as we know it today, might not be hot enough to instantly melt a door that could withstand a plasma flame for several seconds. Technology has changed over the centuries. Also the plasma was used on the hinges, the door is most likely made of a different material. See more »

Haunting and beautiful
16 May 2017 | by dakjetsSee all my reviews

I have to admit that I had low expectations when I was going to see this movie. The negative reviews are why. Appearance that the film has gone bad, not earned enough, etc. But it does not make sense to listen to others. The best part is to find out yourself. And I have to admit that I enjoyed this movie well, even though I understand some of the criticisms. At the same time, I know that Morten Tyldum is an incredibly good director. One of the best Norwegian directors, without a doubt. I think it's strange that he made something directly bad. The film is not a featured sci fi movie, even if the action takes place on a spaceship. I enjoyed the movie for three reasons: 1) The story is unique, and something I've never seen before. It's always a good sign. 2) It's beautiful to watch, great movie, spectacular setups and scenes. It was impressive and 3) This movie works to switch between a love story and some action sequences. It seems like a thoughtful movie, and I appreciated the thought behind scenes and action. The few people we meet in the film give insight and one becomes familiar with the characters. It is also a strength, but perhaps also a weakness. The gallery is limited. But anyway, I recommend this and hope to see similar movies in the future.
