With rapid oxygen depletion and a burn- up rate of 90 minutes, Commander Roberts leads a rescue party to save Holloway before time runs out. Having recently lost his son and now confronted by his immediate end, Holloway feels less enthusiastic about survival. But Roberts, speaking to him only through a weak radio transmission, is determined to save his life, and both soon learn that the lives they have both lived influence each other in unexpected ways.

One man's journey towards the sun...
2 November 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Admittedly, I had no expectations to this movie and didn't even know what it was about. I saw that Steven Ogg was in it and thus decided to watch it. Well, the fact that it was a Sci-Fi movie also helped to sweeten the deal.

Right, well this movie was definitely different, I will say that much. It deviates from your everyday average movie in terms of it essentially being you following a single man - and his dead comrade - in a small space capsule as he is flung helplessly through space, heading straight for the sun. He is in radio contact with a woman whom is on her way to help him. And that is essentially the scope of the entire movie and the entire cast.

The special effects in "Solis" were good, and the storyline was actually interesting enough in concept, but it just wore a bit thin towards the end. I am not saying that this is a boring movie, because it was entertaining enough. But it is hardly the kind of movie that you will watch more than once.

Steven Ogg actually carries the movie phenomenally well with his solo on-screen performance, and he makes it worth sitting through the movie to the very end.

I was adequately entertained by the movie, although this is not a movie I will be revisiting to watch a second time. And while this is not your average Hollywood Sci-Fi run-of-the-mill movie, it does have some interesting aspects and moments, and it is likely that it will have a greater appeal to a niche group of Sci-Fi fans out there.
