The attack it was full of rage. I understand that rage. I've seen that rage in my father and I've seen that rage in me. Because I'm angry that he took off. He left us. You know but when I look at that anger, if I push it aside and just put it away all I see is hurt. I just see pain. I think it keeps me walled off walled off from relationships and opening myself up and, you know, really caring for someone. And I don't know how to get past that.I don't know how to get around that.

It's a very bad movie. I don't know why it is rated so high. Firstly, it's a space opera but the character development and exposition and is sub-par at best. The motivations and behaviors of the characters are absurd. Don't even get me started on the scientific explanations. It is a big budget movie. They could have hired someone to make legitimate explanations. It's just massively insulting that they didn't even try. Story is just not good.
The visuals are beautiful and the VFX look good but honestly, they could be so much better. Looks like the director intentionally didn't want the movie to be about the visuals but rather about the characters. But the characters are uninteresting and not developed well. It's just disappointing. There is one action scene. A space fight on the moon in lunar buggies. Yet, even THAT, an space fight on lunar surface, is boring and very uninteresting.
