While the filmmakers have stated that there's one clear ending they support, they also wanted to leave it open to interpretation to give viewers the chance to form their own opinions. See more »
When Chief mentions the singularity near the O.I. Infini to explain the time dilation, he says that 1 minute and 14 seconds of Earth time would be 24 hours of O.I. Infini time, which actually means a time dilation on Earth. According to Einstein's theory of relativity, time is dilated near a singularity and not on Earth, which is the opposite of what Chief says. Einstein's theory means that 24 hours of Earth time would actually be 1 minute and 14 seconds of O.I. Infini time. See more »
This film borrows a lot from classic sci fi horror movies, you get some of the tech from alien, a little bit of Event Horizon, and has the claustrophobia of The Thing. For a movie made on such a low budget, its pretty good. Maybe not quite on the level of some of the films I've mentioned but still a lot of fun.
A group of colonial marines like characters start off on a search and rescue mission in a far away outpost. Who's alive? Who's dead? You don't really know at the start, but the movie takes its own twist which will be fun for sci fi fans. Its a little weak in the latter half of the 3rd act, too many repeating scenes. I think some things could've been cut.
Overall, its an enjoyable sci fi horror movie. It knows what it is, the actors play their parts well. And even though it borrows heavily from earlier works it still has a fresh ending. Worth checking out especially because this genre is sadly neglected.
