Storyline

Guy is an experienced British fighter pilot who is in command of Britain's first manned mission to space. He has trained for this for three years at the height of the Cold War and now he is alone in space with a malfunctioning capsule. He has limited contact with the UK, some unusual communication with the US and some unorthodox communication with Tyuratam deep in Soviet Russia. Who will help him? Will he make the right choice?

User Reviews

 
A sad one trick pony that disappoints
30 December 2019 | by cyclingreimaginedSee all my reviews

Like realistic space movies, this isn't that. No sense or orbital mechanics or astro training. Like mystery movies that build to a surprising reveal. Nope, there's no there there at the end. Just a hackneyed ending. I'd go on but this film has already wasted enough of my day.
