Goofs

While landing on Mars after the system failure, manual mode is switched and Roy tries to set the angle of fall to 0, but he doesn't turn off the engines at any time; he succeeds in setting the angle in the very last second and yet the rocket lands right in the place where it should, instead of miles away from it.

Disappointing. Would strongly not recommend.
19 September 2019 | by taimoor_2See all my reviews

It's a very bad movie. I don't know why it is rated so high. Firstly, it's a space opera but the character development and exposition and is sub-par at best. The motivations and behaviors of the characters are absurd. Don't even get me started on the scientific explanations. It is a big budget movie. They could have hired someone to make legitimate explanations. It's just massively insulting that they didn't even try. Story is just not good.

The visuals are beautiful and the VFX look good but honestly, they could be so much better. Looks like the director intentionally didn't want the movie to be about the visuals but rather about the characters. But the characters are uninteresting and not developed well. It's just disappointing. There is one action scene. A space fight on the moon in lunar buggies. Yet, even THAT, an space fight on lunar surface, is boring and very uninteresting.
