I loved this movie. I'm a real sucker for anything related to space exploration and the possible ways we'd embark on such long journeys.
The creators of this had advisers from NASA telling them the various things they'd require (such as living pods rotating around a central axis to give some sort of artificial gravity) and I thought it was great how they really focused on the science. They seemed to give importance to how scientists would actually go about looking for results and how sceptical they'd be about certain things (explaining them as chemical reactions and such).
They didn't go over the top with twists and explosions and I think that kept it all quite plausible.
It felt very similar to me to some of the other space exploration shows / movies I've loved in the past such as Sunshine and Defying Gravity and I will probably love anything in the future following the same formula.
The scene where the captain slows their re-entry and then flops to the ground within a second was brutal to watch and I thought it was perfect.
My only gripe was that she was able to upload 16 months worth of video within about 20 seconds, but apart from that it was solid science!
Sharlto Copley's american accent was absolutely spot on. I actually had to look up if it was him since I'd never heard him talk without a South African accent before. That man can act.
If you like things in space, give this a shot!
