[Netflix] i love how planet Earth moving away from the solar system with those huge-ass motors propelling it kinda looked like a wandering eye ball, snail-paced on its way to the grave. I love that huge truck they drove around. the sphere-like steering wheel was awesome. it felt Bessonian sci-fi. Liked it.
"The Wandering Earth" boasts quite possibly the most ridiculous, anti-science premise I've ever heard, and it's "Independence Day"-style climax sees all of humanity coming together for the express purpose of blowing Jupiter out of the sky so the Earth can live. But you know what? By the end of this $50 million Chinese sci-fi epic, I was ready to pump my fist and shout "To hell with Jupiter!" right there with them.
Box office behemoth from China is a big budget effects laden tale that concerns a worldwide level to 'move' Earth to another galaxy when our sun overheats. Yes it's about as scientifically believable as the events of 'Armageddon' and 'Deep Impact' a number of years ago...but just as rousing as well. Well worth some attention.
When they do the Hollywood remake, they'll have to change a lot of that dialogue in the beginning. "Anticipating. Spring breeze has arrived. The spring is near. The yearly planning begins with spring." And so forth. Otherwise you don't have to change a thing. Except now the USA is the center of the effort instead of China.
Quite an imaginative premise alongside some of the borrowed but background sci-fi ideas we always see. Well executed in general but I think the dubbing in the English language version seemed a bit clunky at times.
