A grief stricken captain embarks on his final mission in command of an ageing cargo ship. The ship's small crew, frustrated and discontented with their lives in deep space, try to complete a successful mission but the ship has ideas of its own. Soon, an 'accident' onboard forces a diversion to Somnus, a derelict asteroid station in a forgotten sector of the solar system. They soon discover the colony is populated by a mysterious and sinister cult, hell-bent on dark plans for Earth. The crew's hope of sanctuary on Somnus soon turns to peril, as they fight for their own survival against the colonists, and humanity's ultimate fate. Terrifying truths about the end of life on Earth soon force the captain to face up to his personal torment leading to a climatic and exciting conclusion.

Tedious. Painfully pointlessly tedious.
16 October 2016 | by greenber-147-574623See all my reviews

Well, that's 1:22 that I just wasted. Half-way through I realized that it was too deep for me.

A bunch of derelict-type space-trash are on some type of a mission that get sidetracked to an old forgotten colony that is wonderfully verdant – except for some all the residents (perhaps the offspring of the original settlers? It was at this point that I decided that I simply did not care)

I'm sure that the movie will appeal to some. Just not to me. I've been blamed as being too shallow to appreciate fine art. It could be. I just do not think that this movie is an example of fine art.
