Set in the near future, the film chronicles the odyssey of 30 young men and women who are sent deep into space on a multi-generational mission in search of a new home. The mission descends into madness, as the crew reverts to its most primal state, not knowing if the real threat they face is what's outside the ship or who they're becoming inside it.Written by
The movie or story has quite a few themes that are interesting and could be described as deep. And especially early on, it feels like the movie tries to be sensible and might really go full head on with those issues. But than you realize it opts out - takes the easy (cliche) way and route. It sort of panders to the teenage audience it aims at.
Now I don't think it is bad overall - but I can see that some people felt offended (intellectually and otherwise) by the movie not taking the viewer seriously. It just isn't the philosophical movie you may expect it or want it to be. Still there are (predictable but still) enough twists and turns and tension to keep you on your toes .. of sorts. It depends on how much suspension of disbelief and how much slack you cut it ...
