A return to tasteful science fiction.
12 September 2015 | by njonesproductionsSee all my reviews

This is awesome science fiction.

Wonderfully crafted.

By 40 minutes in I knew this film was absolutely fantastic. A welcome treat among so many scripts that tend to walk the line of "the ridiculously over the top."

Ryan seems to be winning me over with serious roles, more and more, as he matures as an actor. He does very well in the roll that Ben Kingsley gets started in a journey to achieve "Immortality."

The fact that the film was shot exceptionally tastefully, had a great cast, and contained a worthy script makes it a shoe in for a good ride at the very least.

You should take it.

It's a return to what Science Fiction should really be. A continually changing bar or understanding of the universe as we "dare to dream the things that might be within our grasps tomorrow."
