Review of by James O — 17 May 2018


For better or for worse, this is what Star Trek (1966-69) would have been if they had a bottomless budget. It's intensely cerebral with a pretty great premise but very slow going (they really milk those special effects).

For me this has everything I would have wanted from a ST movie but it's not for everyone. It's more in line with 2001: A Space Odyssey and, to a lesser extent, The Abyss. Speculative science films about exploration.

Hard science fiction that puts SCIENCE ahead of laser blast action. By VJER do I love this one but a popcorn flick this ain't.
