Goofs

Part of the spaceship is rotating while the remainder remains stationary. This contradicts the law of conservation of angular momentum. The only explanation would be that a much more massive hidden wheel was revolving in the opposite direction, but that would enormously complicate the ship's design. The simplest explanation is that the makers of this 'science-based' film did not understand basic physics. See more »

A movie for true sci-fi fans
30 June 2013 | by juffin777See all my reviews

If you are a true sci-fi fan, you should see this movie. It doesn't have a lot of visual effects, star cast or action. What it does have is realism, scientific character and honest human emotions. It tells a simple story of astronauts doing their job, willing to make sacrifices for science and not being dramatic about it. The plot and characters are believable, and realistic style of the film creates suspense much better than any cheap effects and tricks. This movie is made in a true spirit of sci-fi genre. Perhaps, it doesn't deserve a 10, but it should definitely have a higher score than something like "Prometheus". After all let us not forget about 'science' in 'science fiction'.
