A person involuntarily alone on a spaceship, dealing with isolation and desperately trying to get out of their predicament is an intensely interesting premise. Then Jennifer Lawrence shows up; the story becomes about their relationship and plummets completely. At one point he starts describing what he was doing over the last year and everything he said sounds like a much, much more interesting story.
With a script so weak and without a proper purpose, this sci-fi romance had a few good moments just because of a few nice visual effects. Now i can barely stand Lawrence and Pratt is not my favorite at all. There was no excitement between them. I liked so much Michael Sheen and his well dressed character. Very charismatic! The ending proved how dull was the entire plot. For me this is just 2 stars. 5/10
A promising premise wandering off into something not only chewed-up and uninspiring, but extremely questionably scripted. And I'm not talking about boring technical details. At the top of that, intriguing cinematic references from the beginning (Space Odyssey and Shining) really had me anticipating more. The most refined insight I managed to dig up, however, is a stretched space-propaganda advocating marital life.
A poor execution of an interesting idea. I think it might've worked better as a lonely psychotic sci-fi horror. I kept expecting the main character to become deranged like in The Shining or battling against a ships computer alone like in 2001 or surviving alone like in Silent Running or something. But instead of exploring the psyche, this films only interest is in waking up a pretty girl against her will to romance.
It's not good, there's no beating around the bush. It's not sci-fi and it's not really a romantic comedy, but it does have Jennifer Lawrence and that goes a long way in my book. It's enjoyable but overall not a good film though the amazing cast and cameos like Lawrence Fishburn and Andy Garcia. It's not much point talking about the film but it's just what it is, with Lawrence and that is good enough.
