Heavy Handed Sentiment
30 March 2014 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

I came in to this film thinking it might be something along the lines of a 2-D version of GRAVITY and you can't blame me for thinking this . Lone woman in space finding herself in mortal peril and perhaps facing a long drawn out lonely death . Not a bad idea for a film even though it's been done before . The fault of EXPO isn't that it's been done before but everything seen here is completely over-done in nearly every aspect . You want an audience to empathise with the protagonist ? Well how about making her a single working mom and if that doesn't make you identify with her how about making her a single mom to a sick kid who is battling a life threatening illness ? Are you in tears yet ? How about if someone plays some sentimental music on a solo piano ? If you're not crying your eyes out as to unfortunate life is then you're one cruel hearted b*stard

The sledgehammer manipulative approach lets the film down greatly because e are talking about a short film that wasn't made by a mega-bucks Hollywood studio therefore realising a lunar landscape with Planet Earth seen in the distance must have been a challenge to director Joe Sill and yet this is one thing he accomplishes rather well . . He also resists the temptation of making the future look too futuristic . Okay you can say this is once again down to a lack of budget rather than artistic reasons but one of the serious problems of bringing futurist ideas to the big and small screens is to design everything as being too entirely futurist , so much so it ends up being both laughable and dated at the same time . In fact two of the greatest science fiction films of all time are ALIENS and ROBOCOP and their greatness lies in the fact that everything is recognisably present day even watching them in 2014 . Just a pity Joe didn't concentrate more on the other aspects of EXPO
