I was curious to see how Pattinson was on screen when not being a sparkle-pire pretty soy-boy -- also this film was supposed to have something, or so I heard. I gave this film a chance -- I really did -- but I shut it off around the 40min mark (it's about 1h50mins long) -- it was just too slow, it got too weird, and I just didn't care. I can do some weird in my sci-fi but not when the film doesn't seem to be going anywhere and doesn't show me anything I haven't already seen in the genre. I'm all the more glad I was doing some work while watching this on the side. If you're looking to be bored and need some motivation to jab your eyes out, this is the film for you!
(But if you need some good sci-fi ... there are A LOT of better titles available.)

Space shuttle suicide mission film with a Crazy scientist/doctor experimenting on the crew/inmates. The movie shows "current" time with flashbacks detailing what happened prior. It is worth the watch if you like survival movies, sci-fi movies, and/or space movies.

Offensive, stupid movie.

Two words. Excruciatingly tedious.
... punctuated with moments of elevated boredom.

I like a good sci-fi and I like great drama.
This movie achieves neither.
I would not qualify it as an art film either, there's little in it to provoke much thought in its current form. The premise has some potential but the writing isn't enough to fill a 10 minute video essay. This monstrosity shouldn't have escaped the editing booth.

Give it a pass unless you're in 'segregated confinement' with a lot of time to waste.

One of Robert Pattinson's best films he's ever done it was a real space adventure to be remembered.

Too bad. I like Sci-Fi movies for the most part, even kind of bad ones (think John Carter and Pitch Black) but this movie was in my opinion worth a one word review: STINKERS!
I didn't like anything about it, even the spaceship and not one character was compelling.

Brooding and ponderously slow-paced. Not much of a story, and not much of a point. Moreover, I found it difficult to imagine any collection of individuals, put into similar circumstances, acting the way these characters did. I couldn't find anything in the story to grab my interest.

Utterly fascinating. Easily the most intriguing sci-fi film of 2109....4 stars.

They literally show a baby vagina within the first ten minutes. I was disgusted. How does the library have this trash? The director of this movie should be incarcerated. AVOID THIS MOVIE.
