"400 Days" centers on four astronauts sent on a simulated mission to a distant planet to test the psychological effects of deep space travel. Locked away for 400 days, the crew's mental state begins to deteriorate when they lose all communication with the outside world. Forced to exit the ship, they discover that this mission may not have been a simulation after all.Written by
"Daisy Bell", the song that Dane Cook's character (Cole Dvorak) sings while walking in search of Tranquility, is the same song that HAL 9000 sings in 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) while Dave Bowman is disabling him. See more »
When the four astronauts are on their way to the town of Tranquility and have only just spotted its street lights in the far distance, the reflection on the glass of their helmets shows a horizon - the kind that you would see in the early beginning stages of dawn. There is even an outline of trees and shrubs visible in this horizon. And this while the astronauts are all immersed in the pitch black darkness, with the only source of (nearby) light being their flashlights, meaning that it would be impossible for even the faintest reflection of a horizon to show on their helmets. In addition to this, in this scene they are located in a desert-like area that is devoid of any plant life whatsoever, so the reflection on their helmets is incorrect either way.
It appears that the reflection on the helmets shows the area in which the scene was originally filmed, and thus that during post-production, the crew missed editing out the reflection for that scene, because the reflection of the horizon is missing in other scenes that take place in the pitch black darkness.

I'll go ahead and make a quick review of this because it isn't worth more than the time I actually wasted on the film.
The movie is alright when it comes to entertain you, space related stuff, cabin fever kinda vibe to it.. Actors are of course "so so".. I mean come on, Dane Cook? In theory, after watching the trailer a while back, I was having faith in what could happen in the end, which did not happen in any ways. The whole thing could have basically been a 35 minutes school project and I'd believe it. You constantly ask yourself little questions that are shoved aside because it makes no sense throughout the movie.
In conclusion, the movie could be alright if it wasn't for the horrible ending, which could have been much better. I could personally come up with 5 nice endings that people would give a much better score on that movie.
Oh well, enjoy whatever's good of that cheap space horror movie.
