Finally, An Honest Sci-Fi Movie
28 September 2013 | by dafttarSee all my reviews

I don't want to put down the Star Trek genre, and anyone who is honest doesn't consider Star Wars true science fiction.

However, I want to say that it is truly wonderful to come across a movie like this that shows that "Sci-Fi" is not code for "Space Horror".

This movie is truly what science fiction should be. And exploration of the human condition in extraordinary circumstances of advanced technology.

Some may find this movie slow, but I thought it was beautiful. It is an excellent study of the human being in extraordinary circumstances, and one who retains his humanity. Movies like this are rare gems. It was a pleasure to see it and think about it. If you truly love real science fiction, then this is the movie for you.
