I was hoping for more from an IMAX film, especially one passing itself off as a documentary
18 September 2017 | by mdeth-15394See all my reviews

Like so many other reviewers have mentioned, this movie was an annoying waste of time I couldn't even finish as it was inducing narcolepsy.

*Nothing new stated, so no learning potential *Some simulated graphics segments were beautiful, some look phoned in *Above mentioned work juxtaposed with cheap attempts to "imagine" early man, earth, etc. *Pointless segments with poor Cate desperately trying to whisper metaphorical crap in hopes I guess of stimulating existential thought(this worked only long enough to wonder why this film exists) *Above segments admittedly written by Malick, which serve as notice to Hollywood to never allow him to write anything like this for screen again.

I don't want to take away from some of the obviously hard work done by others on this film, but overall, I get the feeling good talent was wasted on this sophomoric attempt at a documentary.

Honestly, you'd get more out of re-watching anything like The Universe, HTUW, or anything Brian Cox has done.

Terrance, if you're reading this...science doesn't need metaphors...it's not throwaway drama, it's reality, act like it when you do a project like this.
